A Note on This Beer
El Segundo Brewing Company is on the fast track to becoming the primary hop destination of the L.A. beer scene. Their reputation for using freshness to showcase hop flavor is just one of the many reasons why. Today’s reason is the brewery’s outstandingly rated Mayberry IPA.
Mosaic’s flavors have a diverse range but most Mosaic-focused IPAs only capture one or two notes. But Mayberry sings with every possible layer from tropical to citrus to resinous herbs. They even manage to harvest this hop’s rare blueberry magic.
Aromas of papaya and melon prepare you for the tropical storm of flavor on your way. Drunken pineapple and orange zest notes hit upfront, navigating your palate to guava notes and hints of earthy spring onion as it warms. There is nothing standing in the way of absolute hop flavor and aroma, paired with a subdued bitterness.
Vibrantly crafted as a hop grandstand, Mayberry IPA is a Mosaic adventure you’ll savor as many times as you can. We snagged a super fresh batch of this IPA so you could experience it at its peak hoppiness.
