Now pouring for a limited time in our Byron tasting room.
Mosaic hops feature complex but clean flavor characteristics and are known for their triple-use profile encompassing bittering, flavor and aroma. They have high alpha acids but low cohumulone which makes them pleasantly hoppy, carrying flavors of mango, pine, citrus and herbs and aromas of tropical and stone fruit.
With a high alpha percentage and low cohumulone, it makes a very nice foundational bittering hop. It is also noted though for its favourable aroma qualities. It has a pleasantly fruity, yet earthy herbal and piney aroma.
