- Product Details
- Mosaic is the icon of single-hop complexity. Its kaleidoscope of tantalizing citrus, pine, tropical fruit, and berry notes decorate each golden-copper hued glass, alluding to an IPA recipe kit with many more varieties of hops. Capped in thick, ivory froth, a meticulous arrangement of malts lends subtle caramel sweetness to a modest, bready backbone. Mosaic bursts up from the depths in a prismatic eruption; each wave of evergreen grapefruit overwhelmed by sweeping pineapple-mango herbals . This spectral motif quiets into abstract bitterness for a smooth, refreshing, hop-forward finish.

- 4.9 / 5.022 ReviewsFavorite IPA kit I've brewed so farReally enjoyed making - and drinking - this beer! Easy recipe, brewed this past August. I was just thinking about ordering another kit today because this was my favorite of my 2015 brews. Don't know how the flavors changed over time because it was gone within a month of bottling. Mosaic hops are 'trendy' right now for a reason!February 24, 2016Tropical fruit complexity that keeps getting better!I am not a big IPA fan but tried this kit to share with friends that are fans of hoppy bitterness. It is more bitterness than I normally drink but I love the grapefruit, strawberry and tropical fruit favors of the mosaic hops. I drink one every week and it changes a little every time (for the better)! I think next time I will cut back on the hops and boil time to lessen the bitterness. I will make this kit again!September 16, 2015what more could I want?Ok, so I just transferred this brew from secondary to a keg, so I 'm reviewing this product under the worse condition possible, i.e. the beer is flat and warm at this time. No carbonation and warm and this beer still is better than almost anything I can buy. When this beer is carbonated and is cold, I am sure I will never want a better tasting IPA..... As I mentioned before in another review, "I am a simple man, easily satisfied with the best."(Churchill quote)September 3, 2016Puff out your chest with this one!!This is the absolute perfect balance of everything in the universe. 2 weeks primary, 1 month secondary, 5 and 1 micron filtration into the keg for 2 days of 20 psi force carb. Absolutely the best aroma of fruits and hops you can imagine!! Very nice ABV to make you feel great!!June 9, 2015DeliciousNice balance of malt and hops. Had a Stone Delicious IPA last night and thought "This tastes just like the Mosaic IPA I just brewed!" I think that's a good thing.July 9, 2016Nicely Balanced BeerWe added a double batch of this beer to our brew day after brewing a double batch of an All-Grain Quad since the colder weather was on the horizon here in the mid-west. We used the Omega British Ale VI yeast since my two stir plates were working away on the yeast starters for the Quads. I have never tried Mosaic (that I know of) before and not usually a fan of hoppy beers, but this one has a great balance between hoppy and malty. I will definitely brew this one again - either All-grain or extract/partial mash.1st pour of the Mosiac that was brewed 5 weeks ago.December 12, 2016New Yeast TestBrewed this Monday and everything went perfectly. Currently in conical for fermentation. Looking forward to tasting next week and kegging it.June 2, 2016Great session beerJust the right balance of malty/hoppy. After about 20 NB kits this the first only the second kit I've reordered, the other one being Carabou Slobber. There are a lot of good ones to try , but this I think will be a regular of mine.November 22, 2015Wonderful!I brewed this in March, and just took several bottles to a meeting of colleagues and other home brewers. This beer was a big hit. With some added honey and agave nectar, my initial SG was 1.082 — following some NB reviewers' tips, I zested a tangerine into the initial wort, and added about 1.5 oz of bourbon-soaked oak chips in the secondary with the dry-hops. Incredible flavors, powerful punch — Mrs & I split a 12 oz bottle while watching late-night TV to avoid "overuse" complications. I will be doing this one again. And again. The Mosaic hops rock.June 4, 2015Mosaic IPAI just uncapped my first beer after 2 weeks primary, two weeks secondary and two weeks after bottling. Had two friends and my wife and all of us concluded, two thumbs up. What phenomenal flavor. This is my third IPA from Northern Brewers I have brewed and between Kama Citra, Dead Ringer, and now this Mosaic and I can't believe how great they have all turned out. Each different but each spectacular. I just started a primary on the Highrise IPA and can't wait for the results. Will for sure be ordering more MosaicApril 30, 2015
- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answerswhy does this recipe call for adding one pound of corn sugar during the brewing day process, I thought this was only added before bottling for carbonation?BEST ANSWER: The sugar addition to the boil is to boost the starting gravity which will result in a higher ABV potential.I did not add the pound of sugar during brew can it be added later?BEST ANSWER: The sugar would need to be boiled for a minimum of 10 minutes to make it sterile. If you already pitched the yeast, I wouldn't worry about it. Your abv is going to be a little lower if that's the case. If you haven't pitched the yeast, make sure you cool down your sugar.
