In his most notable mosaic work, Sosus of Pergamon depicts doves sunning atop a golden chalice. The image was said to be so enticing that real birds flew into it while trying to reach their stone companions. This single-hop showcase is inspired by the beauty of divinity of the Sosus mosaics. Just as the doves discovered their golden nectar, discover the irresistible nature of the Mosaic hop.

Hazy golden. Small white head. Big citrusy aroma. Taste is hops and malt. Not bad. Slight sweetness.

Another 22 oz. bottle, huge thanks to Charles! Clearer pour than King Sue, a hazy gold with the same outrageous lacing and pillowy head. Nose and flavor are nuts, with kiwi, apricot, grapefruit, scallion, onion, and fruit punch. Big, extremely dry, and luscious. Like this a whole lot.

Bottle thanks to Woodchopper. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong pine, grapefrut, hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice hop bite and resin with nice lingering bitterness. Easy to drink, very impressive.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 22 oz bottle purchased from Toppling Goliath. Pours a beautiful clear bright golden yellow color with a rocky wisp of white head. Aroma is dank and intense: fresh hop bitterness, and a pleasant sweet aroma akin to diesel fuel. Flavor is same with a singular hop bitterness down the middle that is delicious and amazing. Medium bodied, active carbonation, dank piney bitter finish. What a fantastic beer.

Bottle from zach. Thanks man. Golden yellow orange. Hoppy, citrus, touch of pine. Perfect amount of bitterness. This is a damn good double IPA. I’ll even say a hair above king sue.

Pours a light opaque gold with a nice white head. Citrusy aroma with maybe a hint of pine. Taste of a resin citrus bitter combo and seems maybe a little dry. A little bitterness hangs around for a little bit. Overall a good beer, not as good as King Sue but another good TGB beer.

Bomber. Rich gold orange pour with a white head. Amazing aroma and taste of mango, pineapple, and some resin. Syrupy palate. Awesome beer!

Looks like hazy pineapple juice. Has that citrus Toppling Goliath smell. Sweet aroma. Mmm, that’s good stuff. Sweet and citrus smell. Awesome pineapple mango taste. So tasty. Can they make an average beer?

On tap at Hunahpu’s Day 2014, poured into souvenir taster glass on the second run through the TG line after catching the last bit of King Sue. Cloudy light orange body with an off-white head that looks creamy. Aroma is citrus, mango, pine, caramel malt. Taste is mild citrus sweetness complimented by the caramel, moderate citrus peel and pine bitterness. Medium body, oily, creamy, and slick texture, average carbonation, long bitter finish.

Clear golden yellow with nice aroma. Sweet citrus fruits and a nice bitter aftertaste.
