This beer has been getting a lot of hype so I had a friend in New Hampshire track down a couple of bottles for me. If you have read my prior posts about Stoneface you know I have only been really impressed with their India Red Rye. Their IPA and first DIPA Hopulization were good but didn’t blow me away.
Mozaccalypse uses a combination of Mosaic and Azacca hops. I have reviewed a lot of beers lately with Mosaic hops but I do not see Azacca often so I have no idea what the flavor, aroma or bittering profile is. The appearance is a slightly hazy orange with a solid white head. Aroma is big but seems to be a hodge podge of citrus, floral, pine and onion, not really working for me.
Taste is similar to the nose starting with a pine resin followed by some perfume floral and a pretty significant bitterness. Overall it was a decent beer but it seemed the hops were competing instead of complimenting each other. Maybe it is just my palate but their beers seem to get more hype than they deserve as they do not even come close to offerings from; Hill Farmstead, Trillium, Tree House or even Maine Beer.
