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.

4.8 / 5.024 ReviewsTropical 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, 2015Favorite 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, 2016what 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, 2015Another great IPABrew day was 6/7/16. Followed directions as is. Fermented at 66 degrees and dry hopped on the 25th for eleven days. Hydrometer taste test was very encouraging. Had an OG of 1.080 and FG of 1.010. Opened a bottle after 10 days bottle conditioning and it was really good. The grapefruit flavor isn't as pronounced as in some other IPAs. It is still citrusy, has a wonderful bitterness, noticeable but not overbearing alcohol note, and great head and head retention. Mosaic does seem to be on the sweet side. This is a great beer to enjoy under the evening shade of a tree after a hot work-filled summer day.August 3, 2016peaks quickly, then deterioratesI followed the instructions closely on this brew, and the only trouble I had was keeping the dry hops from getting into my bottling wand and bottles. After about 3-4 weeks, this beer hit its peak with amazing citrus and tropical notes, but by around 8 weeks the flavor had noticeably declined, with those great hop notes disappearing. I recommend this beer, but strongly recommend drinking this one quickly, or at least keeping it cold to preserve freshness after bottling.August 16, 2017DeliciousNice 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, 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, 2015
Browse 6 questions Browse 6 questions and 11 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 made a yeast starter for this kit and roughly 8 hours after pitching it I'm not seeing any activity. Should that be a concern? Note that when I had my Wyeast smack pack in the fridge at around 40 degree F for roughly 3 weeks since I was traveling and once activated it barely swelled up.BEST ANSWER: I would not worry much about it. I have had my smack packs not swell up, and after a day or two it started working and beer was fine. It is usually happens it the smack pack is not fresh. It is still good just slow to start. Check the date on the smack pack. Be patient. Make sure your container is sealed have a beer then relax.Hi Guys, how much priming sugar should I add to this Mosaic recipe when kegging?BEST ANSWER: NONE!! All you have to do is keg it and pressurize it for a few days at about 20 PSI, then reduce the pressure to about 3 PSI (for pouring)...then enjoy!! If you don't have quite enough carbonation, increase the pressure for another 24 hours and try again :)I did not add the pound of sugar during brew can it be added later?BEST ANSWER: The problem is that it won't go into solution easily and may not be sterile. You could make a syrup out of it by boiling it with an equal amount of water and adding it to your primary fermentation. It will raise the volume and possibly give you a secondary yeast bloom. I would just be sure to move it to a secondary fermentation bucket after a week to prevent autolysis of the yeast. You are going to love this beer! I use bags soaked in starsan to add the hops so there is not so much true at the end of the brew.Am I able to substitute a pack of citra hops at the 30 minute mark instead of a 2nd pack of mosaic hops?BEST ANSWER: It'll still be good beer. Slightly different flavor profile. You won't ruin it.How many IBU's are in this extract kit?BEST ANSWER: That will depend a bit on the Mosaic crop but generally, 50ibu give or take.
