The beer turned out well. I used a Briess pale ale as a base with small amounts of Carapils, C20, toasted pale, and wheat. I dry-hopped with 4 ounces of Pacific Gem. I definitely agree with the dark berry and woodsy qualities. I also picked up some melon and oddly enough nutmeg. This hop has great qualities, but I think it doesn't stand well alone. I think it needs another well rounded variety for full effect.
