A product of Nugget and Simcoe hops, American bred Mosaic hops are one of the most in-demand aroma hops on the market. Released in 2012 by the Hop Breeding Company, Mosaic presents a complex bouquet of earthy, pine, and fruit aromas from berry to mango.
Though Mosaic does contain an alpha acid range between 11.5% and 13.5%, it is generally not used for bittering. The overall characteristics of Mosaic hops make for a lovely addition in just about any beer style, though most commonly used in pale ales, IPAs, and stouts. Due to the high demand for this aromatic hop, you may need to substitute with parents Simcoe or Nugget. Taste Mosaic for yourself in craft brews like Victory Brewing Co.’s DirtWolf Double IPA.
All hops are packaged in oxygen, light and moisture barrier bags. They are purged with nitrogen and stored cold to optimize freshness. Resealable packages feature a tear notch and zipper.
