Hop Continuum No. 2 Mosaic Red IPA
DuClaw Brewing Co.'s Hop Continuum No. 2 Mosaic Red IPA is a very pretty beer from Baltimore, Maryland. It's a cloudy, ruddy brew--rusty and covered with a fog of creamy head. It came in a 12oz bottle and contains 6% alcohol. It packed a pungent aroma: floral, hoppy, and slightly coppery. The flavour walked the same line, with initial earthy maltiness, metallic and floral notes, and a classy hops finish.
Hop Continuum Two is a fine red IPA. A bit more ballast would help out, but this stuff doesn't need much assistance.
Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
