The rare release of Mosaic and Eureka continues The Hop Concept’s exploration into partnering select hops together to make dankified craft beer.
New service available exclusively to independent breweries.
Two heavyweights with complex flavors meet heading in the latest Hop Concept IPA. Mosaic, probably one of the most aptly named hops fuses an array of tropical fruits, citrus and berry with mild herbal, earthy, and pine characteristics. Heady Eureka hops emphasize heavy pine, underlined by mild floral notes and rounded out with dank aromas.
“Mosaic is a personal favorite of mine, so getting to pair it with Eureka got me excited to be able to not only brew, but drink this again,” Steve Burchill, Head Brewer for The Hop Concept said. “The batch of Mosaic hops we’ve been working with this year have been crushing it, so we let that hop lead the charge.”
Mosaic and Eureka IPA will be available throughout The Hop Concept/ Lost Abbey/ Port Brewing Distribution network beginning the first week of August.
Founded in 2006, The Lost Abbey produces an extensive line-up of continental and American- inspired ales and lagers.
