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.

I mean...good lord. Bottle, pours golden orange-ish, tight soapy white head. Big dankness on the nose: pineapple, tropical fruit, some orange peel, a touch of cat pee, whiff of grass. Robust malt bill really props up the mouthfeel, which is big and bready, but man are those hops pungent. Just super-clean, super-drinkable. Near perfect.

Pours a bright gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bold citrus, grain and subtle pine. Taste is bitter citrus, so big, slight pine and fresh grain. Maybe the best ipa Iíve ever had.

Looks like hazy pineapple juice. Has that citrus Toppling Goliath smell. Sweet aroma. Mmm, thatís good stuff. Sweet and citrus smell. Awesome pineapple mango taste. So tasty. Can they make an average beer?

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Bottle from randomgarbage. Thanks a TON, bro!!!

Pours the color of bud light. Nice!

The aroma is something that I have only smelled in the top tier beers coming out of California. Straight up tropical fruit. Really, really amazing. Throw away all your preconceptions about what kind of beer can be made in Iowa these days, because this thing gets it right in every category that matters. Tropical, juicy, low bitterness, alcohol completely hidden.

This is literally God Nectar.

Bottle shared in the GTMW ticket line, thanks Adam for sharing, Iím pretty sure this is a bottle from randomgarbage, so thanks to Andy too. Pours a clear golden with a thick white head and lacing, as soon as this started being poured people started paying attention because you could smell it from freaking 30ft away. Tons of tropical notes filled the air, so good, grapefruit mixed in as well, the flavor didnít disappoint either, tons of pineapple mixed in with other tropical fruits, really smooth, the malt is noticeable but is so well done and balanced, one of my favorite things we opened up today, freaking awesome.

Bottle from Randomgarbage. Pours a nice copper with a little white head. Aroma is terrific grapefruity hops, incredibly clean. Flavor grows on you with every sip. Great DIPA.

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.

A huge year to say the least for the folks brewing in Decorah. Bottling line finally up and going and releases of Kentucky Brunch, Morniní Delight, XHops, and Sosus have them one of the most talked about breweries in the country. Early in í13, 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!

Bottled yesterday. Jesus. Juice. Jesus juice. Clear gold pour with a small white head. Aroma is mango, cantaloupe, sour diesel, a bit of pine, zesty lemon, grapefruit, and just a hint of floral hop notes. Good lord Mr. Hopbomb, pleased to meet you. My name is randomgarbage. I enjoy fine dining, longs walks on the beach, malt liquor, and CLEAN, tropical fruit forward IPAís. Do you mind if I drink you? No? Thanks! Iím glad your flavor is as nice as the aroma lead me to believe. Very clean finish, dry, minimal bitterness for the style. Truly amazing. bottled last night apparently. Fresh. scroll past 4 days old IPAs.
