Default Dry hopping with Mosaic and ???

Working on a batch using soley mosaic hops. Does anyone have suggestions on what hops might pair well with 1oz of Mosaic for dry hopping?

Something piney or citrusy. It's a very fruity hop, and I personally don't like to dry hop with it alone.

I'd suggest Simcoe or Chinook myself to balance it a bit. It gets "sweet".

I made an all Mosaic APA and it came out way too fruity for my taste. I would definitely pair it with piney hops in the future. My wife loves that beer though, so it wasn't a waste.

Zythos is a great partner for Mosaic.

I'm dry-hopping with Mosaic and Belma right now. Should be pretty fruity.

Depends on what you're brewing, grist, yeast, etc as other factors effect the hop flavor beyond just the hops. That being said, I'd use Nelson.

I did an IPA with Chinook bittering and late addition + Chinook/Mosaic dry hop. It was fantastic.
