With access to brews like today’s Free Mosaic from BlackStack Brewing, it’s amazing to me that anyone in St. Paul, Minnesota gets anything done.
When I first tried this 10% ABV juicebomb, I got so wrapped up in its 100% Mosaic Hop dankness that I totally forgot about the booze and sucked down 2 cans in 45 minutes. Needless to say, I spent the rest of the afternoon happily dozing on the couch.
What can I say? This brew’s flavors of fresh squeezed OJ, ruby red grapefruit, dank papaya, and tropical passionfruit hide that massive ABV so well, I just couldn’t put the pint down!
And judging by the eye-catching 4.39 on Untappd, there are plenty of folks who can’t stop sipping. Just check out some of the comments:
- “BlackStack IPAs are elite and this is no different.” @Corey K.
- “Another BlackStack homerun!” @Adam G.
- “Honestly don’t even know how to rate these anymore. Every BlackStack TIPA I have makes me even more of a snob.” @daddyborch.
Hey, it’s hard not to feel a little snobby with a fridge full of this brew! But, be warned — if you manage to get your hands on a case or two, remember that big ABV and at least TRY to pace yourself.
