Not sure you can go wrong with any of those although I don't have any experience with mosaic.

Great Lakes recently released the "Rye of the Tiger"... I don't have much experience with drinking any Rye PA's but I was more than happy with this beer. They use Columbus, Warrior, and Simcoe.

I really enjoyed the "Rye of the Tiger" that I recently had on tap because I could taste the rye character.  I don't care for the SN "Ruthless" because I really can't taste the rye in it.

I did a rye IPA with Amarillo, cascade, and centennial that came out great. You could drop the centennial and do just the cascade and amarillo.
