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.

All this from a cellophane-covered, refrigerated sampler in a wine glass (thanks joet for preserving me a sample, and next time Iíll jump in the car immediately). Tropical and leather hop aroma volatiles give way to green onion nose with malt core throughout. Thereís 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 itís the mosaic. Not dry or sweet in finish, but lasting flavor. THis one is tight.

Bottle poured into a snifter. 4.0 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of creamy beige head. Retention is good and a couple different looking waves of lacing are left. 4.5 S: Booming floral and citrus hops. Mango and papaya dominate. Next the aroma becomes resiny and floral. Then a big hit of orange, then pineapple. It finishes with a touch of earth. 4.5 T: Heavier moderate bitterness. Heavy citrus dominate again. Mango, orange, and papaya are the most potent. Flowery and dankly resiny. On the sweeter side, but the malts are mainly neutral. 4.25 M: Heavier medium to heavy body. Good moderate carbonation. Viscous without being sticky and good creaminess present. 4.5 D: Itís really freaking good, but itís still not as good as fresh draft pseudoSue. ★ 783 characters DavoleBomb, Dec 09, 2015

aleigator (702) - GERMANY - JAN 22, 2016
Pours an orange-amber color with a smaller, bubbly head on top. Smells or blood orange, peach, zingy lemon rind and a pleasant dankness, coated up by toffee malts. Herbal qualities turn more present among flowery biscuits, well balanced by juicy, ripe exotic fruits. Has a medium carbonation with a medium body to it, revealing an intense clash between hops an malts on the tongue. Its mouthfeel remains pleasantly creamy though, leaving all nuances of the beer detectable, due to soothing yeast. Tastes of an initial aqueous softness, establishing the beers great mouthfeel from the kickoff, together with comforting toffee malts. In a split second malts turn absurdly sweet, while the hops try to establish a working balance by introducing garden herbs and dry lime. Finds its peak right after the swallow by producing a dough coated, piercing toffee sweetness, while overloading the palate with bitter hops at the same time. Finishes surprisingly clean, leaving behind its staggering sweetness, now focussing on lemon, prickly kiwi and juicy blood orange. Almost overpowers my tastebuds, once the beers piercing sweetness gets established from out of nowhere, while hops accept the challenge by creating an equally powerful bitterness. This misses certainly some balance to me, to form a pleasant drinking experience. Usually I would assume a dipa being ruled by its hops, in this particular bottle its been vice versa.

Bottle share. Golden color with a frothy white head. Nose is big citrus hops, tropical fruit, and piney. Sweet and bitter hops taste, lots of grapefruit and tropical fruit. Light malt presence, mostly big flavorful hops. Delicious.
