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.

Bottle generously shared by Hopscotch. Clear pale yellow pour with a white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Grapefruit and mild citrusy hop notes. Good balance with just enough of caramel malt backbone to keep Sosus honest. Above average mouthfeel and body. A very good double IPA that is eerily Hill Farmsteadish...

22oz bottle a few hours off the Hop Patrol truck, bottled on the same day! A very tasty IIPA. The mosaic hop is quite nice, reminiscent of Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, Citra..light and earthy, with plenty of tropical fruit flavors. Some spruce too. The body is clean and drinkable, but there is so much hop flavor you want to reflect on it sip by sip. Quite a tasty IIPA, very unique and modern. Assumably the freshest beer I’ve ever had out of a bottle.

Dr_MedievAle (151) - Alabama, USA - OCT 15, 2013
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.

Bottle from the Nova split into two glasses. Unfiltered cloudiness. Interesting play of the hops with the malt. Citrusy and bitter. Great stuff as always from TG.

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.
