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.

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 (199) - Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2015 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.

Steve_0 (3188) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2013
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 don’t think I am a huge fan of mosaic hops.

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.
