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 shared at Craft Clerko, massive thanks to Ryan for generously leaving this one with us, 25/10/13. Hazed pale golden with a decent sized white head. Nose is bitter citrics, light piss, dank hops, orange sherbet, grapefruit, mineral notes. Taste comprises jammy tropicals, orange sherbet, pine resin, grapefruit, citric zestballs. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop bitterness at the curtain call. Good DIPA, ABV well integrated, very drinkable, maybe lacks a little depth.

10/13/13. 22oz bottle bought from pepsican via Johnís Grocery. Thanks, bro. Pours like it should - looks good. Dank aroma, citrus, plenty of tropical fruits, some of that onion/garlic/dank aspect in there as well. Sweeter than expected, especially knowing how those IA bros tend to like the dry, pale malt, doughy variety of hopped up brewskies. Also tastes like citrus, dank, onions, all that good stuff. Good stuff.

Bottle. Hazy golden pour with white head. Nice citrus and pine fresh flavors. Aroma is light. Could use more texture, is a little thin.

Hugely flavorful DIPA with a bit more booze then you would expect out of 8%. Really piney and dank with a lot of bitterness and a high amount of sweetness.

Scopey (8505) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle thanks to Ryan. It pours golden with a thick white head. The nose is fresh, big passion fruit, floral, grassy, herbal, soft fruit, marmalade apricot, peach, plum and greengage. The taste is soft, bitter-sweet, doughy, grapefruit, floral, light alcohol, herbal, bitter grass and toast with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Not quite as punchy as I hoped for. Smooth, crisp and rather drinkable. Pretty delicate for a double. Tasty and grows on you.

gmellison (426) - Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pour thanks to adnielsen. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma is really hoppy and piney. Tastes fresh and hoppy, balanced without too big a citrus character. Nice

arminjewell (8474) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, big thanks to Aaron for this bottle! Pour is hazy yellow-orange pour with thin but lacing white head, aroma brought big notes of dank pine, orange, slight lemon, touch of spice notes in there, nice grapefruit as well. Taste is a mix of nice orange, grapefruit, lemon, slight earth, hints of spice, nice cracker, finishing fairly bitter, more orange. Nicely done, as usual from this brewery.

mpersinger (360) - , California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
All this from a cellophane-covered, refrigerated sampler in a wine glass (thanks joet for preserving me a sample, and next time Iíll jump in the car immediately). Tropical and leather hop aroma volatiles give way to green onion nose with malt core throughout. Thereís a prominent saline/mineral flavor that is not coarse, nor present in mouthfeel, not much bitterness either- yet huge hop flavors: green onion and tropic....in a complex good way. Medium body, refreshing carbonation. Either really hard water, or itís the mosaic. Not dry or sweet in finish, but lasting flavor. THis one is tight.
