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.

Bottle from theAlum. Thanks! Pours a hazed deep gold with a sticky white head. Nose is some green onion, faint garlic. Mangos and peaches come through, along with some old-school resin. Light kerosene. On tasting, really smooth bitterness. Has an odd full-bodiedness to it that is a bit offputting to me. Almost oily. Really clean fermentation with a big fruity hop flavor. Again, kicks out some of that parafin stuff that is odd. Good, not great.Thanks Adam!

Bottle shared in GTMW ticket line - Pours clear golden with a bubbly white head. Nose is dank onion hops, garlicy with a bit of tropical fruit. Taste is similar, real dank and fruity, with a clean malt base. Soft, fluffy body. Very tasty stuff.

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Random! I love TG, and this beer is no exception. Pours beautiful clear golden butterscotch with a medium white head that slowly dissipates leaving great lacing on the glass. Aroma is a wonderful boquet of citrus, tropical fruits, guava, pine resin and a bit of cat piss. Flavor is the same, wonderfully fruity hop notes on top of a very light sweetness and surprisingly light bitterness given how powerful the hop aromas are. Mouthfeel is a bit light, but impressively oily and tongue coating. Up there with the best - these guys sure know how to make an IPA. I just wish I lived a bit closer.

Bottle. Big thanks to Adam for sharing this one! Pours hazy blonde with white head. Aroma is catty, grapefruit, orange peel, some garlic, Flavors guava, tangerine, melon, citrus, long piney finish. Full mouth feel. Slick feel. Some alcohol noted. Really good but not perfect, kinda gets odd on the backend, malt could use a little more character.

brokensail (10917) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Thanks, orange haired guy. Bright orange pour with a white head and spotty lacing. Nose is dank grapefruit, pine, and tangerine. Pineapple, light bready malt, and excellent floral notes. The flavor is crisp, dry, and bitter. Plenty of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. Light pineapple juice, some floral notes, and a touch of bread. Drinks pretty good.

Smell is very earthy and piney. Taste is very crisp and clean. Very light in color. Taste isn’t overly bitter for a double IPA, nicely balanced. Really good.

Bottle shared by the Hoff - thanks! Clear yellow pour, thick white head. Nice floral nose, citrus and just a little bright pine. Smells translate perfectly into the taste of the beer. Really nice!!
