Mosaic Papaya Pale Ale is an easy drinking pale ale with papaya and other tropical hop flavors, balanced by a light malt sweetness.

With a low ABV of 5%, Mosaic Papaya Pale Ale is a hoppy, smooth and fruit-influenced brew that’s made for day drinking! Mosaic hops are known to impart notes of earthy pine and fruit aromas from berry to mango. To learn more about hop flavors, this is a great site.

During the brewing process, hops are added at the beginning of the boiling stage to give the beer a bitter flavor and more are added at the end of the boil for aroma and flavor. Each beer is brewed differently. Some beers call for hops to boil for 60 minutes and some for 30. All beers contain some bittering hops. Read more about boiling hops and bitterness here.

You can find Mosaic Papaya Pale Ale on tap at the brewery and in 16oz, 4pk cans in package and grocery stores throughout New England, including Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Can’t find our beer? Ask us!
