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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2014 Bottle from randomgarbage. Thanks a TON, bro!!!

Pours the color of bud light. Nice!

The aroma is something that I have only smelled in the top tier beers coming out of California. Straight up tropical fruit. Really, really amazing. Throw away all your preconceptions about what kind of beer can be made in Iowa these days, because this thing gets it right in every category that matters. Tropical, juicy, low bitterness, alcohol completely hidden.

This is literally God Nectar.

Bottle shared in the GTMW ticket line, thanks Adam for sharing, Im pretty sure this is a bottle from randomgarbage, so thanks to Andy too. Pours a clear golden with a thick white head and lacing, as soon as this started being poured people started paying attention because you could smell it from freaking 30ft away. Tons of tropical notes filled the air, so good, grapefruit mixed in as well, the flavor didnt disappoint either, tons of pineapple mixed in with other tropical fruits, really smooth, the malt is noticeable but is so well done and balanced, one of my favorite things we opened up today, freaking awesome.

Bottle from Randomgarbage. Pours a nice copper with a little white head. Aroma is terrific grapefruity hops, incredibly clean. Flavor grows on you with every sip. Great DIPA.

mcberko (16066) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is super pungent with loads of fruity hops, resin, and a little herbal notes - very mosaic-centric. Flavour brings out loads of juicy resinous orangey hops, pine, and a solid caramel malt backbone. Extremely juicy, with medium hoppiness for a IIPA and no astringency. The juiciness is in the best way possible. Insanely refreshing and delicious. Awesome stuff.

A huge year to say the least for the folks brewing in Decorah. Bottling line finally up and going and releases of Kentucky Brunch, Mornin Delight, XHops, and Sosus have them one of the most talked about breweries in the country. Early in 13, Sue and Sosus were released simultaneously and people went crazy for it, and still do. This Imperial IPA focuses on the mosaic hop bringing out citrus and tropical fruit notes along with some dankness that make this an easy pick for the Hot 25 in Eastern Iowa!

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.

kermis (12212) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle shared. Pours very hazy golden orange with small floaters and a small off white head. Aroma of massive tropical fruit juice, pineapple up front with kiwi, light citrus. Flavor is light to light moderate sweet and over moderate bitter. Some pine and very resinous hops coming out in the palate and sticking to your tongue. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Superb!

Clownoisseur (435) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Retro. Bottle pours a vibrant golden orange. Nice 2 finger white head fades to soapy lacing and a cap that lingers. Aromas of snake juice! Pine, earth, dirt, resin, mango, peach, pineapple! Ridiculous! Taste is soft in the mouth with fruit juice pouring out. A dry character permeates through with earth, pine and flowers. Juicy peach, mango and pineapple follow through to a juicy finish! Killer stuff! Love me some Mosaic!
