COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

MrHangover (3142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle, thnx to trade. Pours a hazy light orange beer with a very small, white head on top. Aroma of pineapple, orange, slight booze, tangerine. Flavor is fairly bitter, some boozy notes, big malty, sweet base. Missing a bit complexity, but still, very, very nice. The bitterness is nice and well balanced, short, bitter aftertaste. Nice, good beer with a good depth and balance.

marcus (7476) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Shared by my friend Alex. Pours cloudy blonde with a nice off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor, a little fruity, with an earthy dose of mosaic.

Clownoisseur (357) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Retro. Bottle pours a vibrant golden orange. Nice 2 finger white head fades to soapy lacing and a cap that lingers. Aromas of snake juice! Pine, earth, dirt, resin, mango, peach, pineapple! Ridiculous! Taste is soft in the mouth with fruit juice pouring out. A dry character permeates through with earth, pine and flowers. Juicy peach, mango and pineapple follow through to a juicy finish! Killer stuff! Love me some Mosaic!

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle and served in tulip: initially clean golden hue and 2nd pour was more much more hazy, very good lacing. Very juicy hop profile of pineapple, apricot, tangerine and dragon fruit with a touch of dank and herbs. Bready and slight caramel malt notes. A tad boozy but nothing extreme nor distracting. It is not as tasty as Sue but better than Hopsmack.

TheEpeeist (3524) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2014
22 oz bottle. Cloudy orange with white frosting. Nose is musk, almost fishy, melon, toffee and orange pith. Super resiny, medium to full body with fluffy carb. Taste is nectarine, pine, honey, lemon-lime, scallion and bitter orange. Oozing hop juice, dank and drippy. Crazy stuff; a cannabis screwdriver?
