Pretty amazing balanced and crisp stuff... Especially for a single hop beer. Really tasty and hop-forward and delicious nimbleprop (9022) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 1, 2018
22oz bottle pours a gold with some frothy, white head. Nose has lemon and C hops, oily, mild herbs, grass, mild honey. Flavor is lemon and lime, mild malt, C hops, hop oil Oily finish. You'd never guess this was Mosaic, not a standard Mosaic profile. Nuffield (4252) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2017
The classicism in the name and label is stunning--I didn't know it but was fascinated to read up on it later. As for a beer, I was not similarly captivated. I'm not a hop-head, though I do like great DIPAs, and in this case, I found the astringency too difficult to overcome on the path to enjoyment. In the future, I would be one of the birds sunning itself on the edge of the bowl rather than the one dove drinking from it.

Pours medium gold with a thick, white head. Powerful aroma of citrus and grapefruit. The trend continues with a strong grapefruit flavor on top of a mild malt backbone. Taste is essentially bitter from start to finish. Good, but not an every day beer. radagast83 (8690) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2017

Bomber style bottle shared by dubtully and consumed in Belgian snifter glass. Aroma is big and assertive citrus and pine resin. Plenty of white head on a golden orange hued ale. Taste leans a little bit more bitter and slightly soapy with plenty of resiny/pine elements. Citrus rind complements a citrus sweetness...grapefruit and tangerine, and a healthy dose of pineapple. Surprisingly more complex than anticipated from a single hopped effort and does it without any sort of malt backbone. This really frames the Mosaic hop in a great light. Once again Toppling Goliath exceeds expectations.
