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.

Got a bottle during the GDDC release. Light bodied Pale Ale. Dry mouthfeel, with an interesting woody malt backbone flavor. Nice berry fruit hop taste.

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.
