Mosaic hops are a relatively new breed (formerly know as HBC369) which are dual-purpose with alpha acid content around 10%, and can be used for bittering and flavor/aroma in craft beers. Mosaic hops were bred from Simcoe, and offer a wide range of interesting aromas and flavors, including blueberry, pineapple, lime, grapefruit, mild pine, and tropical fruit. 

Mosaic hops are becoming increasingly popular in craft brewed IPAs and Pale Ales.
