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.

A huge year to say the least for the folks brewing in Decorah. Bottling line finally up and going and releases of Kentucky Brunch, Mornin’ Delight, XHops, and Sosus have them one of the most talked about breweries in the country. Early in ’13, Sue and Sosus were released simultaneously and people went crazy for it, and still do. This Imperial IPA focuses on the mosaic hop bringing out citrus and tropical fruit notes along with some dankness that make this an easy pick for the Hot 25 in Eastern Iowa!

Leighton (14674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - London. Huge thanks to Ryan for hooking us up with this one. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose has lots of piss, mango and grapefruit. Medium sweet flavor with big peach, grapefruit, pee, light pine needles, light grass. Medium to full in body with fine, creamy carbonation. Moderately resinous to finish with some sugary bread, more mango, peach, tangerine, pee and grapefruit. Really solid.

Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head. Fruity, almost grassy hops, with medium bitterness throughout, and a nice dry hoppy finish. Good stuff.

Nice and interesting IPA. Goldish copper pour. Citrus and tropical nose. Someone at tasted noted some dank and onion aroma...not unpleasant though. Lots of pine in the hops with grapefruit and bitterness that linger. Sweetness towards the end. Really interesting taste.

Theydon_Bois (13371) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
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.

drowland (7095) - Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2013
10/13/13. 22oz bottle bought from pepsican via John’s 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.
