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.

All this from a cellophane-covered, refrigerated sampler in a wine glass (thanks joet for preserving me a sample, and next time I’ll jump in the car immediately). Tropical and leather hop aroma volatiles give way to green onion nose with malt core throughout. There’s 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 it’s the mosaic. Not dry or sweet in finish, but lasting flavor. THis one is tight.

Bottle care of Ryan Steasy66. This pours very pale amber, touch of haze, small bubbly white head. I’m surprised this is so pale in colour. Nose is sticky citrous fruit, lemon, lime and bitter grapefruit, some soapiness, light grain malt, grassy. Taste is surprisingly subtle and balanced. Light citrous fruit, lemon, lime, grapefruit, biscuit malt, soapiness and pine, lightly floral.

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.

Very good, A bit Malty and bitter on the finish. It’s ok but the victory dirt wolf was better

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.
