Notes/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.

A: deep golden ale with rich foamy head a few fingers high

S: lots of rich citrus and pith, floral and bright; subtler aromas of clean, fresh malt

T: exciting hop action is sharp and crisp and fresh, melding the darker pine into the palette of citric elements; slightly sweet pale malt chew beneath

M: medium weight with ample carbonation, quick bittering and relatively clean-finishing; tight and crisp

O: an outstanding DIPA sure to please fans of that sort; a brightly shining example of a superior DIPA.
