Here is a whole thread about people discussing this technique

Great advice and great thread! I read the whole thing last night. Ill be trying that method this weekend.

Drinking my (mostly) Mosaic IPA right now.

It is basically the Fat Head's Head Hunter grain bill, with Centennial, Columbus, Simcoe and Mosaic. Mosaic got added in larger quantities that the other 3.

I definitely get the watermelon / berry taste that others are reporting. I also have a slight vegetal taste after a 7 day dry hop.

Overall, it's a solid hop I think, but it didn't knock my socks off.

Ok an update on my all mosaic IIPA (recipe posted earlier). It's now kegged and carbed and my oh my it is delicious! Total fruit bomb of a hop for sure. Lots of peach, grapefruit and melon notes and flavors with a lingering bitterness on the finish and with all the crystal and white wheat it's velvety smooth! It's very simcoe like only without the piney and sometimes grassy flavor of simcoe. I'll be making this one again and again for sure!

Ended up brewing this yesterday:


13# Maris Otter
1# crystal 20
1# victory
1# flaked oats

White Labs 002 English Ale yeast

-1.75 oz Magnum 60 min
-2oz Simcoe, 1oz Mosaic, 1oz Falconer's Flight all at 0 min
(these were added after dropping temp to 180F, then steeped for 10 minutes).
-1oz Mosaic and 2 oz Falconer's dry hop

-I wanted to add more Mosaic instead of Simcoe, but my LHBS didn't have any.

I can't wait to see how this turns out! I'll be sure to update after bottling.

Added Mosaic to one of our standard IIPA recipes which has 7 hop additions and am very happy with the results. Agree that it has Simcoe properties that are somewhat mellowed (for those that cook, the analogy that comes to mind is raw onions vs carmelized onions). Used it as a late hop addition + DH. Brewing just keeps getting better and better with the continual introduction of great hops...

I dry hopped an IPA with 3oz of it. It's been on tap about a a week now. It smells like Citra and Simcoe made love in a blueberry patch. I like it.

Haha. I was trying to think of what the aroma was like (very unique) and you nailed it...

Bottled the mosaic pale today, decided to go with 2 oz of dry hop instead of only 1 oz, smell radiated out of the bottling bucket through my whole kitchen. Great hop, cant wait to see what the final product produces.

I've heard from several people that it does indeed have a bit of the garlic-onion smell to it.. I haven't used it myself, but will be using it this weekend in an IPA with Amarillo, Simcoe and Chinook.
