- Product Details
- This DIPA uses a single hop aroma/flavor varietal, Mosaic — it bears aromas of honeydew melon, crisp citrus, and powerfully fruity late-summer berries. The marriage of the two potent potables is astoundingly brilliant — the tequila enhances Mosaic’s natural flavors and aromas, but brings it’s own spicy and fruity character, for a pint muy delicioso. We recommend a reposado or anejo to compliment the sweet malt, and only 100% pure agave, for the best companion to this hop monster of IIPA recipe kits. Tequila not included in kit.

- 5.0 / 5.01 ReviewJust the right hop, just the right biteI have friends that only use Maris Otter but for myself, I haven't had that much experience with it. My personal taste is certainly for a malty beer and one that is not going to split my tongue with the hop profile. But, I hadn't brewed a DIPA and one using Mosaic hops either. So this beer was what I had been looking for. This is just an awesome beer. The description and color from NB is spot on. Rich and malty but not thick and heavy. Quite tasty for a recipe that is close to being a SMaSH beer. The Mosaic hops have an awesome aroma and flavor! And yet, it didn't sting my tongue out of my mouth. I used 6 1/2 oz of Don Julio reposado. (5-6 recommended in recipe) The rich tequila smooths out the taste, rounds that hop bite off and gives you just enough flavor at the finish to remind you of your ingredient addition; not too much to think you just slugged a beer and a shot. This is in my top 3 and I can see drinking this really anytime of year. Thinking of trying this yourself? All I can say is ARRIBA ARRIBA, ANDALE ANDALE, YEEHHAAAAAA!!!!January 22, 2014
