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.

4.18/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Glass Used: Teku

Appearance: Hazy orange clover honey body with a minimal head. What head was present was a vibrant snow white. Lacing is abundant as you sip it down.

Smell: A nice bouquet of grapefruit and lemon followed by some dank intermingling about. The citrus was immediately noticed when you popped the top.

Taste: Grapefruit, green onion and a wee bit dank are your key players here. I get big sweet orange and some pine resin in the finish.

Mouthfeel: A bit tacky, kinda like finishing a big gulp of fresh OJ. The walls of your mouth and tongue are coated with a bit of stickiness.

Overall: I love Mosaic hopped beers and this is no exception. An excellent offering from TG. I really dig the citrus notes and orange finish in this one. Definitely recommend.
