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.

Pennsylvania

4.11/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a medium gold color with a light, creamy white foam head with a very soapy looking lacing ring, and sticky.

S - Tropical citrus fruit, mango, oranges, and a little bit of sweet yeasty character.

T - Pineapple, oranges, passion fruit - Sweet tropical fruit from start to finish with sweet malt underneath. Sweet hoppy from start to finish but eventually starts to get "sugary" after awhile on the very end.

M - Medium body and velvety smooth with a lingering hoppy fruit finish.

O - Definitely worth a try.

This is definitely one of the best double IPAs I've ever had. I've never had Heady but I have to imagine this can compete.

A - perfect hazy orange
S - tropical bright kind of mango pineappleish
T - follows the nose. Very smooth.
M - perfect - DNase enough but still so drinkable
O- close to a 5 - everything I want from a double IPA. I believe this beer features the Mosaic hop which, to me is very similar in profile to the Citra. It does a great job showcasing it. I dream of making beer like this.
