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.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2013 Mosaic label is a nice touch. Straight up juicy Mosaic hops tickle the senses. Sweeter than most DIPAs but I really like this. Damn, Toppling Goliath is killing it.

Drinking this again fresh, I’ve gotta up the score from 3.7. Gorgeous appearance, sticky lace, perfectly carbonated (not too high :D). Billowing Mosaic aroma knock my nose on its back. Freaking delicious; still a touch sweet (objectively), but this is a home run for me. A top-tier DIPA from one of the absolute best breweries in the world.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2013 Huge pine smell. Flavor is mild, some pine, fruitiness. The simcoe hops are better than mosaic.

Bottle from Casanovas, nice light golden orange pour with a white head and great lacing. Aroma of pineapple, mango and some resinous/piney notes. Taste is similar sweet citrus with some maltiness and slightly drying finish. Great lingering bitter in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle from John’s 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.

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.
