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.

A huge year to say the least for the folks brewing in Decorah. Bottling line finally up and going and releases of Kentucky Brunch, Mornin’ Delight, XHops, and Sosus have them one of the most talked about breweries in the country. Early in ’13, 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!

Bottle thanks to Woodchopper. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong pine, grapefrut, hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice hop bite and resin with nice lingering bitterness. Easy to drink, very impressive.

kermis (8453) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours very hazy golden orange with small floaters and a small off white head. Aroma of massive tropical fruit juice, pineapple up front with kiwi, light citrus. Flavor is light to light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Some pine and very resinous hops coming out in the palate and sticking to your tongue. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Superb!

Retro. Bottle pours a vibrant golden orange. Nice 2 finger white head fades to soapy lacing and a cap that lingers. Aromas of snake juice! Pine, earth, dirt, resin, mango, peach, pineapple! Ridiculous! Taste is soft in the mouth with fruit juice pouring out. A dry character permeates through with earth, pine and flowers. Juicy peach, mango and pineapple follow through to a juicy finish! Killer stuff! Love me some Mosaic!

Bottle brought back from brewery by thebitterendaz - pours a bright orange with vibrant scent of piney hops. Juicy flavors of peach and pineapple rounded out by the earthiness of Mosaic hops. Dank bitterness balanced with a crisp finish. One of my top favorite IPAs!

Yeah this is yet another very good TG IPA. Not sure what to say other than "it displays Mosaic rather nicely."

simont1 (517) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2016
Big aroma of currants, mango, flowery, orange marmalade, typical Mosaic. Taste more so toward the balanced IPAs, a bit malt character with a big mango, passionfruit, guava and currants. A bit thin. Quite close to Trillium’s Artaic, but doesn’t pop as much.
