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.

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

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.
