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.

Pow! This beer is pow. Pours w/ a lg fluffy head that lasts & a nice slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is a heady blend of grapefruit, resin, & weed, in that order. Flavor is is actually pleasantly ( & I would say masterfully) understated. Perfect body. Finish is very easy for a beer of this power. I want more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Random! I love TG, and this beer is no exception. Pours beautiful clear golden butterscotch with a medium white head that slowly dissipates leaving great lacing on the glass. Aroma is a wonderful boquet of citrus, tropical fruits, guava, pine resin and a bit of cat piss. Flavor is the same, wonderfully fruity hop notes on top of a very light sweetness and surprisingly light bitterness given how powerful the hop aromas are. Mouthfeel is a bit light, but impressively oily and tongue coating. Up there with the best - these guys sure know how to make an IPA. I just wish I lived a bit closer.

Poured from a bomber. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Flavors are tropical fruit, citrus, melon, light pine, and a tangy tartness. Amazing beer! No trace of bitterness or alcohol content. Another epic beer from TG!!

joet (2121) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
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.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Aroma: loads of tropical fruit and citrus, juicy grapefruit, a solid punch of pine, just a touch of malt in the background, some floral and perfume notes. Appearance: mostly clear light golden pour, fluffy white head with good retention and lacing. Taste: wow. Exceedingly clean and hops aplenty. Lots of ripe mango, zesty grapefruit, some resin/pine going on. Light cracker malt character, just enough to support the hop charge. Alcohol is dangerously well hidden, almost imperceptible, and for the advertised IBU, the bitterness takes a back seat to the hop flavors and this finishes smooth as silk. Nice and dry, clean as can be. Palate: light-medium body, medium carbonation, very smooth, dry and clean finish. Overall: Really? Wow. Well done TG. This is my type of IPA - fruity and hoppy without any distracting astringent bitterness, sweetness, or boozy nonsense. This is fantastic!

Damn, stands out above a sea of mediocre IIPA's. Locate this if you can. Huge Tropical fruits up front with a clean noncloying finish. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freshest beer Ive ever had. Like ever. The aroma is pure hop. I admit, Im not very familiar with the mosaic hop, but if I were a beer, Id want to be this beer. So good. I know Im from Iowa and this will come off biased, but TG consistently impresses me.
