SEE WHAT BREWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT MOSAIC® HOPS
This hop rocks! – Mark G. 4/3/19
“Fruity Pebbles! If you have something and don’t know what to pair it with, start with Denali. It accentuates anything. With Mosaic, it brings out the blueberry, with Vic Secret it brings out the pineapple. On its own, it seriously smells and tastes like Fruity Pebbles. This is my favorite hop.”
