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.

dinkle50 (1405) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2017
A little hazy, golden pour with a huge white foamy head. Big time grapefruit aroma with some passion fruit too. Smells amazing. Medium bodied. Taste is full of passion fruit, peach and pineapple. Nice bitter finish, but not overly done. Finishes somewhat juicy. Lace present. Wow, this is good.

TimE (5373) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2016
Light amber color. Huge nose of over ripe mango skin and a touch of phenols which makes this pretty interesting. Light body so biting with high alpha acid. Super smooth drinks more like 5%. Super well executed.

22oz bottle poured at home. Bottle picked up at the brewery with no date on the bottle. Another great beer from Toppling Goliath - great use of the mosaic hop!

jmohno (1556) - Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Heady, and carbonated, soapy bubbles, hazed, hop hazed?. Great fresh juicy aroma, rainy pine, light sweet malt.Fruity candy. Very nice! As usual. TAste delivers good fresh, clean hops, juicy, tastey.Clean and easy, citrus, minty? pine. On the sweeter side but mild sweet. Has the dry powdery, resin thing which is nice sometimes. $12 a bomber, grr. Worth it though but come on, give us sixers for 10 or 12 bucks at least of the smaller abv beers. I would be buying more of TG but I want sixers not bomber rip offs. Iowas best though, thank you Toppling Goliath for distributing, I remember a few years ago TG wasnt even available, and I live in IA. Cool bottle artwork though. Upped the appearance rating.

jackl (7166) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Bottle from Casanova, Hudson. Medium gold pour with a large white head. Nose is full of citrus, dank greenery, and white onion. Flavor has a generally syruppy, sweet biscuit backbone. Quite bitter. More onion and citrus. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty decent.

muzzlehatch (4903) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2016
22 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI, served a few minutes out of the fridge in a pint glass. Very hazy, nearly opaque palest gold, with an enormous fluffy white lasting head that laces well when it finally starts to weaken...the aroma is every bit as huge as the foam, a massive sharp grapefruit attack followed by a lovely earthy, herbal tone, hints of onion and tarragon, also a touch of something perfumy....the body offers only a modest sweetness, with that earthy, oniony texture showing up for an acidic and biting flavor throughout, culminating in a drier, slightly peppery finish...the mouthfeel is of thick, pulp-laden orange juice without the pulp, which sounds stupid but there it is - its thick, acidic, juicy, with moderate tingly carbonation. "Luscious" is the only word appropriate for the experience of this beer, its so...much. Almost too much, really, and while this is definitely among my favorites from this great brewery, I doubt Ill be drinking it often. One of their better bottle designs as well.

malrubius (2694) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden orange with lasting head and lace. Grapefruit pineapple bready floral aroma. Pineapple tropical fruit melon sweetness with some grass and toffee. Citrus rind and spice and floral finish, mildly bitter and very fruity. Medium body soft fine carbo. One of the best beers in the world IMHO. Right up there with the best VT (tropical) IPAs.
