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 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!

22 ounce bottle with big thanks to Lakerpolo15. Big mosaic nose - one of my favorite hops - followed by all that Mosaic goodness and freshness. Nice malt balance (light). Some bitterness. Very tasty.

pushkinwow (2294) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2015
Bomber via Ian. Vibrant bright orange with a slight off white head that fades to a thin ring around the glass. Huge fresh aroma upon first pour with some mango lassie, light resin, apricot, passion fruit, moderate carbonation and body, slightly bitter, smooth, drops of slightly on the finish with a complexity that just doesn’t live up to the promise of the nose...enjoyable though.

MrHangover (3493) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle, thnx to trade. Pours a hazy light orange beer with a very small, white head on top. Aroma of pineapple, orange, slight booze, tangerine. Flavor is fairly bitter, some boozy notes, big malty, sweet base. Missing a bit complexity, but still, very, very nice. The bitterness is nice and well balanced, short, bitter aftertaste. Nice, good beer with a good depth and balance.
