Mosaic is an ideal dual purpose hop, with low cohumulones that make the bitter profile pleasant and tons of multifaceted flavors for late additions and dry hop additions.  Due to it's popularity and general cost, more often than not Mosaic is combined deliciously with fruity and citrusy hops in late and dry hop additions.  Also brilliant as a single hop variety due to it's multifaceted flavor and aroma profile.
