Overall
El Dorado is a hop that really intrigues us and is a major player in Stone Delicious IPA. It can be dominant, but we have found a nice partner here in Mosaic. We’ve been very impressed with Mosaic over the last few years. It’s especially versatile in aroma and flavor and pairs well with a multitude of hops. Simply put, this is a great hop combination!
