    MOD: Above description added by Lord Raja Goomba I. Original post below:


    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?

    Taken from here:
    Mosaic (HBC 369) is an aroma hop variety developed by Hop Breeding Company, LLC that was released in 2012. It offers a unique and complex blend of floral, tropical, fruity, and earthy characteristics that translate very favorably into several styles of beer. Mosaic is the daughter of Simcoe� (YCR 14) and a Nugget derived male.

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

    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:
