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 at home with friends. Pour is clear orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Grapefruit peel, orangey, pineapple, grassy, husky, straw, and biscuity aroma. Taste is grapefruit peel, oranges, biscuit, mango, and pineapple - but the taste is just ridiculous grapefruit peel. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Pretty nice, just donít think I am a huge fan of mosaic hops.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 Bottle at Lenincat and Stalincat?s apartment, shared with adnielsen and lenincat. Poursa golden color with white head. Grapefruit, passion fruit, guava aromas. Grapefruit, piney, bitter flavors. Very good, but I think I like Pseudosue a little better.

Bottle with LeninCat, StalinCat, and jcnielsen thanks to @ndy. Cheers! Pours a hazy golden appearance with a creamy tan head. Very spicy, onion, garlic, dank skunk hoppy, light honeydew, a bit juicy aroma. Simultaneously very juicy tropical fruity and very spicy hoppy. Light bitterness and not gummy or goopy at all. Really herbal spicy, marijuana, a bit piney, strong onion/garlic hoppy flavor along with some lemon, pineapple, and guava. Fucken easy to drink and tasty.

22oz bomber. Aroma is dominated by the hop character with a light cracker malt note. Hops are slightly citrusy with a tropical fruit and melon character along with a touch of white grapes. Pours a moderately clear pale yellow gold with a somewhat thick white head that shows pretty nice retention. Moderate lacing and medium small legs. Flavor starts with a moderate sweetness and a light cracker character. Moderate hop flavor, similar to the hop aroma, and moderately strong bitterness. Bitterness is soft and clean though fairly strong. Lingering bitterness with some resiny hop flavor, a hint of fruit and light cracker malt. Fairly dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall a fairly enjoyable IPA, but I wish it had more hop flavor. I like the balanced nature of the malt and the dry finish, but it could be drier. The mosaic hop is really nice and fairly complex; Iím looking forward to having a pound to brew with.

This is the real deal, and represents an excellent example of this next gen of hop forward beers. Light thin melon and cantaloupe add a backdrop to skunk, light diesel, green onion, sulfur and touches of rose. Creamy feel. Good citric acidity. No sugar apparent in the feel. No gummy resins. Very light bitterness. Clean leaning, lightly astringent finish with a touch of bitterness. Bam. I love it.

Bottle from a rad dude in Iowa. Nose is slightly fruity/tropical, but mostly a general grassiness with a woody, musty nose. pours clear with a medium sized head. Hops and malt are well balanced. Not pithy and not a malt bomb od sweetness. Hop flavor is more tropical than the nose suggests. dry finish and quenching. Not as obnoxiously hoppy as I would expect.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2013
22 oz. bottle from Johnís Grocery- thanks for sending, Andy! Pours a clear, bright golden color with a small white cap that sticks and leaves some lace on the way down. Aroma of fresh herbs and cut grass (with a little spice), pineapple, mango, melon, tangerine, and sweet and pale malts. Flavor of pine, pineapple, spicy fresh herbs, mango, orange peel, tangerine, and sweet nectar. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a resinous, fruity mouthfeel that has some coating bitterness late but dials back in intensity on the finish. Wow. Another winner. These guys do everything well.
