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.

Bomber from Whole Foods Madison. Hazy yellow, large frothy white head, good retention. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, lemon,, pale malt. Taste is pine, candied lemon and orange, a bit of resin, pale malt. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness, juicy, well balanced. Nice.

Aroma is dank and grapefruit. Lots of grapefruit flavors, dankness, and a very bitter finish. Pours cloudy copper with a thick cream head. Had at home out of a bomber ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

islay (2577) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2017
22 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-5-17. Pours a cloudy bronze with a small to moderate amount of beige head. Not particularly appealing appearance, but not an off-putting one. Later pours have larger, uneven, and more impressive head and produce extensive lacing that elevates the appearance, although the liquid itself retains its uninspired dinge. Tangy, hoppy aroma features scents of lemon and apricot skin. Some dankness and grassiness in the smell. Good but underwhelming aroma. Nice, funky, dank flavor. A bit too much peach-and-orange-fruitiness in the taste for my preferences, but I do like the way this tastes. Lemon, even lime, and perhaps onion (or at least scallion). Caramelized onion flavor upon multiple sips. Caramel; maltier than most Toppling Goliath hoppy beers. That said, the underlying beer seems a bit insubstantial. Milky. Lightly chemical aspect. Soapy finish. Medium to full body. Lively. Substantial palate effects. Overall, some really nice notes in the hops, but also some I dont like as much. Not outstandingly juicy/fruity/sweet, thankfully, but a little too far in that direction for my tastes, preventing this from getting a particularly high ranking. But I do like it, although it does get tiresome upon multiple sips. Mosaic is a great hop, but most single-hop Mosaic beers are lacking in bitterness that other hops deliver much better than Mosaic does.

tennisjoel (1437) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Hazy golden pour with a minimal but lasting white head. Strong aroma that is immediately detected upon popping the cap. Great use of the mosaic hop. Fruity mango, light onion, earthy hops. Excellent and another winner from Toppling Goliath.

falco242 (397) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2017
Pretty incredible. Hazy orange, huge fruity citrus aroma, great lace on the glass, and the juicy hops pretty much explode when you taste it. Wish I could find this more often. Not too resiny and finishes a tad sweet. Buy it. Drink it.

nice orange yellow hazy smells like an orange julius for real much more so than that tree house beer pine peach pineapple green tea human pee tastes bitter but with just enough malt to give it some sugar salting after taste feels lithe just enough malt to give it some body but quite dry impressive 8% hides so well overall pretty darn good

Bottle poured into a taster showing moderately filtered caramel honey with white foam lacing. The nose shows clean tropical fruits - peach, mango, and pineapples. The palate is medium bodied and well carbonated. Flavors of strong pine resin and melon with hints of pineapple. Finish is adzuki sweet malts with a harmonious moderate IPA bitterness.
