Recently I had a 3 day stay in Bend and 3 day stay in the Hood River area. This beer was by far the highlight of my trip, even after visiting Boneyard, Crux, Double Mountain, Good Life, Bend Brewing, Deschutes, and others.
Love the color of this one. Dirty gold, with a nice plump head. Nose hollers spice, slight pine, earthiness, and blueberry. Hints of malt sweetness.
Taste is mild honey, caramel, married with piney-spice, rising citrus and soft blueberries. The finish is dry with hints of grain. Really nice. The sweetness of the malt seems to embrace the flavors of the mosaic hops perfectly. The malt lets the hops shine but never stops trying to play the perfect supporting role. Simply outstanding where flavor is concerned.
Lastly, it should speak volumes that on our way out of Hood River we stopped to fill two growlers with this wonderful beer. Very glad I have another waiting for me. Good Luck Pfriem, I cannot wait to support you and see what you do next!

A - Served a pale hazy light orange with a thin off-white head in a pFriem pint glass.
S - Tropical Mosaic hops and not much else. Maybe a touch of citrus.
T - Again tons of tropical fruits. Papaya, mango, yum.
D - Good carbonation with a lighter body an no bitterness.
O - This was the mosaic single hop. Not sure if there are other versions but this one is good.

On tap at 16 tons the other day.
The beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is very attractive on this bad boy, show casing an unusual blend of light skunky weed, light sweet malt, light pine and dry citrus. I say unusual, because this level of hoppy bitterness is something I usually only find in a really good IPA. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but might be even better. The beer is light, very well balanced, with a great hoppy bite on the crisp, dry finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light, but the beer delivers plenty of flavor, and so this beer is incredibly drinkable. The finish is long, crisp, bitter and satisfying.
How good is this pale ale? If I had to choose between this and zombie dust, I'm not entirely sure I would take the zombie dust. This is just excellent stuff.
