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.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and yellow with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet offers an assortment of citrus rinds, pungent armpit, tropical fruits and melons. Full-bodied and creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor furnishes a blend of sweet, pale malts and bitter, earthy, musky hops. Terrific balance with a bittersweet finish. Bottle courtesy of badbeer!

CanIHave4Beers (4159) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a hazy, but not milky yellow with a well retained small head that leaves a decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dank but at the same time very bright. Its got some nice orange and lightly melony fruit character. Its aromatic, appetizing and stinky in all the right ways.

The flavor is a very wonderful expression of the Mosaic hop, its beautifully fruity and lightly floral with a nice light bitterness. Its got a low booziness and is moderately dry. Something so simple, yet so well executed, so tasty... so able to hit the right notes for a hoppy beer with that one hop, its a very cool beer for sure.

Truly I can say that this is a fantastic beer, but for what its worth Id rather drink pint after pint of Pompeii instead of the occasional chance to split a bomber of this a few ways because it flew off shelves so quickly.

Bottle from the Nova split into two glasses. Unfiltered cloudiness. Interesting play of the hops with the malt. Citrusy and bitter. Great stuff as always from TG.

Prufrockstar (2052) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
From notes. Tasted blind, thanks to Ryan for sharing this! Slightly hazy gold pour. Citrus and pine, much like the nights other offering, but this one has a little more caramel. I want to say "candied orange," actually. Taste: Toast, biscuit, a little grassy. Caramel is there - maybe a bit sweeter and less bitter in the finish than the other. A little bit fruitier, but also a bit of weedy dankness. Light-medium body, some noticeable alcohol in the finish, and pretty dry. Overall: the two blind beers tonight (this and La Cumbre Project Dank) both ran pretty darn close to each other. Id probably give PD a slight nod, but when I look at the scores its only by 0.05.

drpimento (3309) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2014
Pow! This beer is pow. Pours w/ a lg fluffy head that lasts & a nice slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is a heady blend of grapefruit, resin, & weed, in that order. Flavor is is actually pleasantly ( & I would say masterfully) understated. Perfect body. Finish is very easy for a beer of this power. I want more! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle acquired by ReeceG! Trade with this guy...crazy generous! Hazy honey pour with a tightly packed white cloud-like head. Lots of Del Monte Fruit Cocktail with peach, pear, grape, and cherry soaked in simple syrup. Perhaps more appropriately, tropical fruit, citrus, and a touch of honey. Love the Mosaic hops. Really solid but other beers from this brewery are its fiercest competition.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2014
From the April 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy yellow-gold color with a small soapy off white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was bitter, somewhat tart and had notes of herbal hops, pine and pineapple. The flavor was bitter and tart pine, herbal hops, pineapple, a brief sweet spike and then more bitterness. Long bitter herbal, pine and pineapple finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

ClarkVV (6214) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Draught at EBF, 3/22/14
Pale amber gold, moderate white head. High clarity.
Strong hop acids give off lots of white grapefruit and pine. Medium sweet malts combine with the citrus to produce a pretty typical candied orange nose. Leafy, fresh and almost earthy-like, though there is some sappy pine on the end that the sugars arent able to mop up. Alcohol dryness is felt on the end as well and mixes with some baked brown bread and sourdough notes.
Lots of c-hop notes here. Marmalade seems the most dominant of them, as the citrus mixes with lightly dry pine resins and sourdough-like maltiness. Much less sweet/malty than the King Sue, so in that regard it goes down a bit easier, but conversely, the dryness really allows the heavy citric/pine hop assault to flag at the palate and some perfumey alcohol notes keep it pretty harsh. Well brewed beer, just too aggressive for me.

chantillonn du Extreme beer fest 2014: Le nez de mosaic est exceptionnellement tranchant et sucr, vraiment impressionnant. En bouche cest plus nectar sucr que souple liquide pour moi, buvabilit modre. Jaurais prfr une corpulence plus lgante mais a reste un rgal.
