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.

All this from a cellophane-covered, refrigerated sampler in a wine glass (thanks joet for preserving me a sample, and next time I’ll jump in the car immediately). Tropical and leather hop aroma volatiles give way to green onion nose with malt core throughout. There’s a prominent saline/mineral flavor that is not coarse, nor present in mouthfeel, not much bitterness either- yet huge hop flavors: green onion and tropic....in a complex good way. Medium body, refreshing carbonation. Either really hard water, or it’s the mosaic. Not dry or sweet in finish, but lasting flavor. THis one is tight.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange with lasting head and lace. Grapefruit pineapple bready floral aroma. Pineapple tropical fruit melon sweetness with some grass and toffee. Citrus rind and spice and floral finish, mildly bitter and very fruity. Medium body soft fine carbo. One of the best beers in the world IMHO. Right up there with the best VT (tropical) IPAs.

Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. 22 oz bottle. The pour is a clear light golden yellow with a thick white head that falls down to a ring, leaving some great lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of fruit juice and tropical and citrus fruit skin and flesh. There is a nice floral hop and a hint of pine resin. It’s a really interesting aroma. The flavor offers a lot more fruitiness to it with a resounding dank hoppiness. The malt pokes through a little on the beginning, but rolls out nicely. The mouth feel is lighter and somewhat syrupy with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly tropical fruit and dank floral hop aftertaste. This is pretty good, but it affirms my love of the citra hop over mosaic.

ctipping (1425) - Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2016
650 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 7/1/2013. Clear orange. Small white head. Wispy surface. Smell is grapefruit. Some bright citrus. A little musty. Very nice. Tastes of much more grain, but it’s still great. More citrusy. Less musty. Slight sweet malts. Medium body. Moderate bitterness. Great hop flavor. Excellent body. High quality IPA.

joeneugs (5866) - Livermore, California, USA - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with an off white head. The aroma has some nice juicy notes of pineapple and over ripe tangerine. Subtle notes of toffee-like malt in the background. The flavor is full with orange, pineapple, hints of dank and light pine. Sweet and fruity on the palate with medium low bitterness. The body is pretty oily, but free from distracting maltiness. Overall, a really pleasant IIPA.
