A friend is looking for a homebrew recipe to approximate the Half Hitch Mosaic IPA from Crux Fermentation Project.
https://www.cruxfermentation.com/beer/half-hitch/
"...the Mosaic hop imparts surprisingly floral aromas instead of the more expected grapefruit-y notes. On the palate, complex layers of flavors might remind you of guava, mango, stone fruit and lemon..."
9.5% ABV, 80 IBU

I'd never even heard of it, much less tasted it, so I'm looking for help from anyone who has.

My dad had this at a local beer bar a while ago and loved it, so my answer was to make a single hop Mosaic Double IPA for him with a similar golden color like the picture, about 80 IBU and similar ABV. I haven't found much other info, so I might try starting there.
