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.

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.

fidelis83 (2003) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 31, 2014
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.

bigda83 (281) - Jamestown, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours golden and hazy with a sudsy white head which left lacing throughout. Aroma was mildly dank with hops, pine, mango, and grapefruit. Taste follows the nose, but I also got some peach notes in there. A small amount of sweetness from malts is noticed up front with a medium bitterness to finish. Medium body and nicely carbed. All around fantastic brew. Toppling Goliath never fails to amaze me.

BMMillsy (1512) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle shared at Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Psyched for this one. Pours light golden color with a thick white fluffy head on top. Aroma of vegetal hops (mmmm), grass, pine, (and maybe even a little weed mixed in). Flavor follows with a beautiful floral and vegetal hop note, some incredibly light sweet malts in the backdrop for a DIPA, grass, pine, ever so slight citrus rind but this focuses more on the grassiness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and very easy drinking. Excellent brew, but probably overshadowed by Duet which I had right before it.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of fruit complexities with notes of honeydew melon, dank herbal grass, grapefruit and a trace of cotton candy sweetness. Big round mouthfeel with a juicy palate that grows bitter and earthy on the back end.

Semi hazy medium golden. Great frothy creamy white head. Maybe it was how everything was mixed, but it was Very floral to me. Weedy. Some citrus in the background. sweetness to balance. Medium plus body, full feel. Some powderiness. Good balance like all TG beers. I liked it, but nearly as much as many other TG beers.

Rando7 (750) - Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle pours slightly hazy yellow with moderate white head. Aroma citrus and a little pine. Taste sweet malts followed quickly by the citrus. Pretty clean finish, I did not notice much bitterness. Medium body.

Toppling Goliath seems to take simple things and do them really well, and this is no exception.
