hmm, just went to me LHBS and picked up a pound of citra and a pound of simcoe and he tossed me 2 oz of this to try, should be fun. Gonna do an APA:
10# 2 row
2# vienna
1# crystal 15L

not sure but probably
1 oz Centennial @ 60
1 oz Citra @ 15
1 oz Simcoe @ 5
1 oz Mosaic @ 0
Dry hop 1 oz Mosaic and 1/2 citra @ 7 days.

Thoughts?

I find it depressing that some people will use such an amazing and rare hop like Centennial as a bittering charge... Bu otherwise it sounds great

Sounds like a good beer, but I would use the Mosaic for flavor and aroma if I wanted to test these hops. I would switch the citra and mosaic additions. Or 50/50 the 15 min addition. JMO. Either way it looks tasty!

eh, centennial was hard to come by a little while ago but things have gotten better.

yakimavalleyhops.com, labelpeelers.com, makingbeerisfun.com, freshops.com and others have them in stock.

galaxy and mosaic are harder to find.

I personally wouldn't consider a hop that can be grown in your back yard as rare .

your logic is solid, but there was a while in november & december when all retailers were out of centennial. gawddam craft breweries...

to get this back on track: farmhousebrewingsupply.com has both 4 oz and 1 pound bags of mosaic (as well as nelson sauvin... and centennial! they also claim to be getting more citra and amarillo soon).
