Smelt Mosaic for the first time today, was bloody beautiful. The flowers were so oily, we were left with green and yellow hands. It has a fantastic aroma reminding me of Simcoe and Citra at the same time. Haven't been this excited for a new hop since smelling Stella for the first time. Am looking forward to trying some. Has anybody seen these yet?

See document for full specs. El Dorado looks pretty good too...

:icon_offtopic: another new hop
Meridian is an aroma variety whose flavor and aroma characteristics have been described as sweet lemon, mixed berry, tropical fruit, and cool mint. It has an unusually low alpha/beta ratio (6-7% alpha/9-10% beta). Worthy has its eyes on Meridian because of its versatility. It has shown promise in single hopped pale ales and IPAs, both as a late kettle addition and via dry hopping. It plays well with Belgian ales as well as European and American lager styles, giving the crisp, clean lager base a refreshing hop finish.

man this is passionfruit galore

kegged a mosaic ale today, force carbing, and will tap tomorrow

preliminary fermenter tasting is even closer to passionfruit than citra

bittering tastes very smooth for the estimated ibu

poured a glass last night, actually four

hop flavour and aroma is fantastic, but wish i'd given it a little more a malt backbone, tastes like spritzy passion pop

wife was sitting next to me as i was drinking it, instead of the usual "that stinks like beer" comment, she said "that really smells like passionfruit".

the bittering is very smooth, so i will be upping the ibu next time i use them, and throwing a bit more malt at it, i think its probably a good candidate for a 10min ipa, 1.060 60 ibu

enjoy it fellas

Care you share your recipe?

I think I got the last two packs from Ross and I'm looking to brew something with them in the next couple of weeks. It would be good to have a baseline recipe to work from.

the beer i had carbed was one of the us05 ones, and i'm a little bit worried about the french saison one, knowing its gone lower, its probably stripped what little malt was left, time will tell as its force carbing and will be tapped tonight

I dry hopped my keg with Mosaic yesterday, left it a few hours and what a mad difference it made.. as strong a 'floral' hit as Citra, but different.. and in a good way, Im only going to leave the bag in till tonight, I think it wont need any longer than that.

mmmmm :icon_drool2:

hasn't "blueberry" been thrown out as a descriptor for this hop? Anyone got that?

I also dry hopped with Mosaic (and Citra) yesterday, fermentation has finished but I plan on leaving it in the fermenter for a few days then crash chill for 2 days, then keg. Mind you I only added 0.5g/L of each so it's hopefully not going to overpower it.

I have not bothered to smell the difference yet, lets hope that it's good!

BTW in this brew I have used Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra so it's going to be fun.

Just mashing a pale now, bittering with Magnum, flavouring with Mosaic to 40 IBU and a 2g/L dry hop Mosaic as well. Just a basic 90/5/5 Ale, wheat, crystal malt bill. :super:
