Cuda tramples traditional ideas on German brewing. Dry hopped with Mosaic and thwarting the shackles of style, this German pale ale will urge you into its corner and caress your needs.

Appearance is crystal clear golden color with smallish head but the sample is a bit dated so it may have been better fresh. Some spotty lacing is left behind.

Aroma consists of fruit and German hop with a sour snap.

The taste produces a slightly fruity, earthy hop flavor with nice malt balance and a long bitter finish. Nice flavor from the yeast too. Reminiscent of the Mikkeller collaboration hoppy lager. The well attenuated lager taste with fruity esters mixed in for good measure. This is a unique and tasty combination.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Very refreshing with a medium carbonation.

A great changeup beer and hopefully will be a repeat offering. Nice one HA. (679 characters)

Deep saturated orange color, hazy with a compact layer of meringue-textured foam. A thick halo of lace coats the glass and drips downwards.

Hops are pungent though not super aggressive. Floral greenery, fruity, with an undercurrent of pale malt also present.

A fruity and citric bitterness, grapefruit, citrus zest, the bitterness is moderate but the beer is pretty smooth overall.Dry finish, light bitter marmalade notes linger. Very light and drinkable, with well integrated hop character. (493 characters)

A-Clear orange, not much carbonation, one finger head, tries to leave behind some lacing.

S-Toasty/wheat then dank tropical hops. Citrus and slight grass.

T-The yeast gives it a wheat/straw/toast like start as you'd expect from a Kolsch. Then the hops take over with citrus and tropical notes. Very dank, Nice bitterness and balance. Some lemon as well.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation, good hop bite.

O-Moasic hops are amazing. Then combining them with the Kolsch yeast makes for a very interesting experience. (517 characters)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Nice light copper color with nice head. Smell was earthy. Taste a surprise, with the bitter pine flavor, not at all like a mosaic hop. Not bad, but not expected. Nice and smooth feel. (219 characters)
