Mosaic/Galaxy/Strata West Coast IPA (Normal Chaos) (American IPA 21A) - Tasting

A West Coast IPA with Mosaic, Galaxy and Strata hops.

Recipe for this post can be found here.


Pours a pale golden orange with a bit of haze. A creamy white head sits atop that sticks around for awhile and leaves some legs of lacing over time.


I get some stone fruit, guava, mild sweetness and an overall general citrus character on the nose.


The beer has medium carbonation. It is very fruit forward at first followed by a small amount of sweetness and a medium bitterness in the finish. In terms of fruit flavor I get notes of blueberry, strawberry and general citrus flavor, like in the aroma. There is somewhat of a hop burn in the finish.


This is an interesting beer. I had some problems keeping the temperature consistent during fermentation, so it got hotter than I would have liked at peak fermentation. I go back and forth on what I think of this beer. Sometimes I”m not a huge fan and other times I think it’s decent. I wouldn’t mind brewing this again but with a more consistent temperature during fermentation.
