Perro Libre | Solo Mosaic Double IPA

Series of beers that uses a single hop variety on its recipe (solo/single hop). This time, we have Mosaic. The name Mosaic was given to the complexity of aromas, that range from citric fruits like orange and passion fruit, to mango, peach and even papaya. It was developed in 2012 on the USA, having from 11.5% to 13.5% of alpha acids (bitterness agents) and from 47% to 53% of Myrcene, the main aroma oil.
