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.

kermis (5452) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours very hazy golden orange with small floaters and a small off white head. Aroma of massive tropical fruit juice, pineapple up front with kiwi, light citrus. Flavor is light to light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Some pine and very resinous hops coming out in the palate and sticking to your tongue. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Superb!

22 oz bottle in tulip. Minneapolis. Appearance: Orange, cloudy, no head. Aroma: Pineapple, citrus, passion fruit. Really really nice. Taste: Bitter, but not too much. Palate: Medium body. Smooth texture. Long finish. Overall: This is a great beer. The aroma alone is fantastic. The body was a little weaker than I would have liked.

Cunningham (4678) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Hazy golden color with a fine white head. Lovely powerful grapefruit hoppy and tropical fruity aroma. Medium to full body. A bit oily. Mellow sweetness and a lovely bitterness. Powerful balanced grapefruit hoppy, toffee, flower power and tropical fruity flavor. Powerful and yet mellow double IPA. Dangerously well hidden alcohol. Recomedable!

Marsiblursi (3021) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
(Bottle) Pours light hazy pale golden. The aroma holds flowers, herbs, tropical fruits, grass and strawberries. Concentrated but fairly complex hop profile. Bready malt, quite slim. The flavour is quite dry, medium bitter and light acidic with fruity, herbal, grassy and bready. The mouthfeel is clean, crisp yet round with a medium carbonation. Lingering fruity, grapefruity and grassy finish, near heavily bitter. Medium bodied.
