This is the third iteration of Coronado's six planned "People's Choice Pale Ales." I know this has Mosaic hops and a little oatmeal, but that's all i know. I've had #1 and 2 and this is my favorite of the three.

Pours like a typical pale ale...burnt orange and white frothy head. Smell is citrus, cat pee and pine at first followed by some unique Mosaic hop smells...I'm getting some berry (blueberry) and some faint melon. Pretty unique, but nice smell. Taste is also a little odd. Starts out with a nice bitter hop bite and then some citrus, followed by that blueberry/berry/melon flavor, but the end is harshly bitter with some crackery malt. Alcohol is surprising present despite being less than 5%. Mouth feel is really nice...fairly creamy for a pale, which I imagine is influenced by the oats.

Overall a unique pale ale but I feel like the Mosaic hops don't lend enough depth of flavor to add much besides a unique smell and some astringent bitterness. I hardly ever say this, but this needs a touch more sweetness and a little less bitterness.
