Every description I have come across for Mosaic says its equally citrusy as piney. Is this not true? Citra is way more citrusy than piney. This is of course is before the citrus falls out within a few weeks.

A couple of things I'd like to mention here from my very limited experience with both hops.

I'm pretty certain that Two Brothers Sidekick is made with just Mosaic. If you can get that, it may provide a starting place for working it into your recipes. It will also answer some of the questions above about piney vs. citrus flavors.

In my ZD clone, I felt that there was no reason to use citra early in the boil like the recipe here on HBT does, and replaced the first addition with Mosaic, and a part of the second addition, as well as one oz of dry hop, all mosaic. I've never gotten higher praise on a beer. It's wonderful.

The advice above me in this thread seems to agree with my experience.

Mosaic as a dry hop gives that hop bomb flavor and aroma effect that Citra is known for?

Did another ipa today with both Mosaic and Citra. Added some homegrown Cascade as well. In a few days I'll dry hop with the remaining Mosaic and Citra.

I'll be reporting back here once they are ready to taste.
