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.

Stine (1765) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Misted rusty orange, has some fullness to it. Mossy, damp aroma. Somewhat reticent at first, though the layers are slowly revealed. Grapefruit, lychee, and tangerine in the tropical hop acids, underlaid with wildflower honey and cotton candy. Wet, dewy grasses and mountain air. The flavor is dank and somewhat softened. Clementine, weed, lemon oil. Cleanly hoppy and cool in demeanor. The slender palate is tautly balanced, though a slightly weighty, bittersweet astringency gathers a bit of soapiness. The sparkle and feathery crisp of the best, brightest examples is not achieved, but the balance and character qualities here are laudable.

Bottle from the brewery shared by RussianDragon. Thanks bro! The beer is light yellow and hazy with a thick, white cap. Oh my...tropical fruits abound. Mango, pineapple, orange, a hint of lemon. Absolutely fantastic. Huge flavor and a showcase of fresh hops. World class.

Hazy golden. Small white head. Big citrusy aroma. Taste is hops and malt. Not bad. Slight sweetness.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Another 22 oz. bottle, huge thanks to Charles! Clearer pour than King Sue, a hazy gold with the same outrageous lacing and pillowy head. Nose and flavor are nuts, with kiwi, apricot, grapefruit, scallion, onion, and fruit punch. Big, extremely dry, and luscious. Like this a whole lot.

djd07 (11361) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Woodchopper. Pours a cloudy yellow orange with small off white head. The aroma is strong pine, grapefrut, hemp. Medium mouthfeel with nice hop bite and resin with nice lingering bitterness. Easy to drink, very impressive.

RussianDragon (574) - - AUG 31, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 22 oz bottle purchased from Toppling Goliath. Pours a beautiful clear bright golden yellow color with a rocky wisp of white head. Aroma is dank and intense: fresh hop bitterness, and a pleasant sweet aroma akin to diesel fuel. Flavor is same with a singular hop bitterness down the middle that is delicious and amazing. Medium bodied, active carbonation, dank piney bitter finish. What a fantastic beer.

Bottle from zach. Thanks man. Golden yellow orange. Hoppy, citrus, touch of pine. Perfect amount of bitterness. This is a damn good double IPA. Ill even say a hair above king sue.

Mindwarp (168) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a light opaque gold with a nice white head. Citrusy aroma with maybe a hint of pine. Taste of a resin citrus bitter combo and seems maybe a little dry. A little bitterness hangs around for a little bit. Overall a good beer, not as good as King Sue but another good TGB beer.

Bomber. Rich gold orange pour with a white head. Amazing aroma and taste of mango, pineapple, and some resin. Syrupy palate. Awesome beer!

Looks like hazy pineapple juice. Has that citrus Toppling Goliath smell. Sweet aroma. Mmm, thats good stuff. Sweet and citrus smell. Awesome pineapple mango taste. So tasty. Can they make an average beer?
