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.

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
All this from a cellophane-covered, refrigerated sampler in a wine glass (thanks joet for preserving me a sample, and next time Ill jump in the car immediately). Tropical and leather hop aroma volatiles give way to green onion nose with malt core throughout. Theres a prominent saline/mineral flavor that is not coarse, nor present in mouthfeel, not much bitterness either- yet huge hop flavors: green onion and tropic....in a complex good way. Medium body, refreshing carbonation. Either really hard water, or its the mosaic. Not dry or sweet in finish, but lasting flavor. THis one is tight.

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.

Sampled from the tap at ABR 2016. Pours a near clear gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. ARoma has a light floral note, bitter citrus, light onion and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has sweet grains, light onion, bitter citrus and a bit of grass underlying.

Mosaic hops are used perfectly in this outstanding Double IPA. The smell jumps out at you with tons of fruit and some pine. This is a very juicy beer that has a good amount of bitterness. The feel has a smoothness to it but with a good amount of carbonation. Toppling Goliath hits another out of the park with this hop bomb proving they make IPAs just as good as their stouts.

Tap at RBBest. Pours cloudy yellow. Aroma is strong hops, grassy, citric. Heavy body, still hoppy and very juicy. Good drinkability.

22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy yellow gold with a two finger head. Aroma is dank grassiness with herbal resinous notes. Taste is grassy herbs with a hint of citrus and mango. Average bitterness on the back of the palette. Medium thin body with average carbonation. Overall, Im not a huge mosaic hops fan, but this beer did them well enough. An above average DIPA for me.

22 oz. bottle 1-6-17. Pours hazy bright citrus gold with a soapy white head. Aroma is dank citrus cat piss. Taste is more of the above with soft malt in the finish. Palate is medium dank and dry. Awesome!
