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.

22 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is super pungent with loads of fruity hops, resin, and a little herbal notes - very mosaic-centric. Flavour brings out loads of juicy resinous orangey hops, pine, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Extremely juicy, with medium hoppiness for a IIPA and no astringency. The juiciness is in the best way possible. Insanely refreshing and delicious. Awesome stuff.

Bottle - So much fresh pine. Cloudy orange with a thin head. So juicy and fresh, absolutely brilliant. Lives up to the hype.

22oz bottle, Steasy66 tasting at CBC Islington. Massive thanks to Ryan for this one! It pours a peachy orange body with a soapy white head. Aroma very hoppy with citrusy notes and lime. Some grassy and flowery notes. Taste is hoppy and fruity with more citrusy notes, peaches, grass and violets. Slight alcohol kick. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, very good DIPA, but fell short of the PseudoSue.

sosus offered vis pepsican courtesy. may your days be filled with chugging kegs of eisbock in the holodeck with warf and o’brien. 2 bottles offered. one shared with hammerslammer, ky, zoe. other chugged by ky’s brah. notes of juicy grapefruit, @ that onion diesel. some somewhat soapy pine coats the palate. boost well hidden. hops a touch too abrasive for my liking. not super bitter, just somewhat unrestrained. hops were not @ tame. soft biscuity malt backing is an afterthought. does some benching and lifting as well.

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber, huge thanks to Ed. The Mosaic hops shine. Huge tropical fruit, hop resin, slight grassy/vegetal note. This is a great IIPA, wish I had more.

Dr_MedievAle (134) - Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Appearance: sparkling light gold; almost champagne like. Thick foamy white head. Tons of carbo bubbles. Aroma: pineapple, juniper, coriander, and some funky pizza-dough yeast (very subtle) as it warms . Taste: Sweet pineapple and citrus give way quickly to sharp bitterness. Salt and herbal aftertaste. Palate: thin to medium-oily. Hop resin washes down smoothly. This is a big IPA. Punchy, flavorful. Beautiful looking in the glass. TG did a great job.

Bottle cheers to Ryan. Fuck me this is piney as all hell and I love it! It’s got everything. Grass, tropical fruit, more pine. Amazing

Bottle thanks to Homer321. Poured into solo cup at bucs/eagles game. Looks to be a golden color. Aroma is catty and citrusy. Flavor is much the same. Nice hop profile, very smooth. Very tasty.
