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.

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.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow-gold with film of white bubbles. Aroma is sweet mango nectar, lychee, orange, honey, light pine. Really nice. Taste is sweet orange, lychee, and bitter honey with a trace of well-integrated booze. Slightly syrupy. Exceptional beer from Toppling Goliath.

#100 DIPA. Thx! to Kraddel. 650 ml. bottle sampled @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Hazy golden with some white bubbles for a head. Smells of sweat actually, sweet dough, mellow grass and light bitter grass. Taste of light bitter grass, coupled with sweet dough, touch bitter hay, light fruit, orange, sweet bread. Body is sweet dough and yeast. Nothing wrong here is an an enjoyable DIPA, easy enough to drink but nothing overly impressive which is a bit puzzling seeing Toppling Goliath’s reputation and this being the first beer that I try by them.

Pours hazy gold. Aroma is tropical fruit. Big tropical fruit notes, mango and lots of citrus. Nice full caramel body balances it well but the hops are the star here. Very hop juice, very good.

Pours a bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bold citrus, grain and subtle pine. Taste is bitter citrus, so big, slight pine and fresh grain. Maybe the best ipa I’ve ever had.

Bomber courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours clear golden with a frothy and slightly bubbly offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is tiny sweet, fruity and slightly herbal with caramel, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, passion fruit, star fruit, watermelon juice, orange zest and lemon zest. Taste is sweet, bitter, fruity and slightly herbal with caramel, grapefruit juice, watermelon rinds, passion fruit, unripe pineapple, freshly cut grass, pine needles, orange zest and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny sticky, slightly astringent, tiny boozy and medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and slightly fruity with caramel, grapefruit juice, freshly cut grass, pine needles, orange zest, lemon zest, passion fruit, star fruit, yellow winegums and water melon rinds. Fresh and very tasty... Possibly slightly too sweet.

Cloudy orange pour with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is huge tropical fruit hops, a little grapefruit, biscuit and toast. Flavor is the same with a really explosive bitter grapefruit and passion fruit finish. Creamy entry with a light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and acidic hoppy bite. Awesome.

Elegant hop floral aroma. Golden straw color. Very smooth and approachable for a double ipa
