Pretty darn tasty hops.
I'm waiting on my 'Mo Gumballhead to finish but it seems like a good pairing with wheat.

Can't wait to brew with these. Gonna do a nice APA and pair the Mosaic with Amarillo. Haven't brewed in almost a year(new house w/re-model) and am ITCHING to go.

On a side note, I'm so done with Citra. I can't get over the catty "sharpness" it has. It just jumps out at me. This years Ruthless Rye has a lot of that character and I pick it up in the Torpedo as well.

I'm pretty much in love with this right now. Going to be ordering a good amount to last me through the summer. Its begging for a hot summer day.

Next batch I might tweak a little with some orange and coriander.

90 min boil
9.3 SRM
63 IBU
.985 bitterness ratio
Amt Name %/IBU
9lbs Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM) 69%
3lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter (3.0 SRM) 23 %
9.6 oz Caramel Malt - 60L (Briess) (60.0 SRM) 4.8 %
8.0 oz Caramel Malt - 40L (Briess) (40.0 SRM) 4.0 %
0.50 oz Chinook [13.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min 21.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Mosaic [12.50 %] - Boil 20.0 min 25 IBUs
2.00 oz Mosaic [12.50 %] - Boil 5.0 min 16.6 IBUs
1.00 oz Cascade [5.50 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days 0.0 IBUs
1.00 oz Mosaic [12.50 %] - Dry Hop 0.0 Days 0.0 IBUs

Bottled this batch today and am pleased with how it turned out thus far. Initial impression is very strong grapefruit flavor and aroma. I fermented with a repitch of 1272 fermented cool (65/66) and then dry hopped with roughly 1oz Cascade and 1oz Mosaic (didn't break out the scale and eyeballed it) and let it sit at room temp (72) and dry hop for 5 days then cold crashed for two. I carbed it on the high side (2.6 vols) and am really looking forward to the first real taste test in a couple weeks. This batch went from 1.062 to 1.010 on the mark = 6.8% ABV.
I followed the above recipe for the most part (variation of what I posted a few pages back) but instead of 2oz at 5min, I had a 1lb bag of mosaic staring at me with 30 min left in the boil and decided to take 1oz split and throw a bit in every 5 minutes till flameout and only did 1oz at 5. Threw another handful at flameout as well for good measure.... I need to be careful on brew days with a big ole bag of hops sitting next to me. I get crazy ideas. So far this one has turned out (and looks/smells) great.

Some feedback from a brewer friend on the IPA I made.
"I like the fruity, almost PEZ like, character of the mosaic hop."

Another brewer friend loved it too and asked for a second bottle the next time I saw him.

I don't know if I will do another IPA with the hop...But it seems like people are enjoying the Pez-Snapple-Berry IPA I made with it.

Finally got to sample some of my mosaic blonde ale I made a few weeks ago. First here is the recipe:

6 gallon batch
OG: 1.056 (overshot my gravity a little)
FG: 1.010
IBU: 48

9 lbs 12 ounces American pale two row
1 lb Wheat malt
1 lb Vienna
12 ounces CaraPils
1 lb rice hulls

.5 ounce Columbus @60 min
1 ounce Mosaic @10 min
1.5 ounce Mosaic @5 min
.5 ounce Columbus @5 min
1.5 ounce Mosaic @flameout
3 ounce Mosaic Dry hop-8 days
2 ounce Columbus Dry hop-8 days

San Diego water profile
US-05


Notes: This is all uncarbonated. The smell is really intense. Loads of peach/stone fruit. A little bit of dankness. It definitely shares that characteristic from Simcoe. But overall, huge on the fruit. A little bit of pine from the Columbus.

The taste is more of the same. The dankness comes in more than in the smell though. Big and juicy peach flavor with a little citrus zest. The Columbus adds a good bit of pine. Not overpowering, but I think I would dial it back next time anyway, because the Mosaic character is really really wonderful.

I definitely want to make this a regular brew in my library. I probably wouldn't change the malt bill, either. It is my preference that this beer is very hop forward, and the malt adds a little bit of cracker character. Just how I like it.

Well I guess I'll just have to let my personal palate be the judge!
