This is the most polite beer I've ever had, this is the sort of beer you have if you want to taste something sweet and hoppy, without bringing just that up. It's a beer I could see myself drinking for any and all settings, pairing with most food, even perhaps with bitter spicy stuff.

A very well-made beer. Here goes:

A: Pours a hazy yellow with a very large head; the head readily dissipates, however, leaving a lot of lacing. The body is also very well carbonated.

S: Scents of tropical fruit and herbs pervade the smell. Can detect lots of lemon with faint smatterings of grapefruit and orange. While the beer is somewhat grassy, the fruity scents really dominate it. Good

T: Follows the nose. Lots of grapefruit and lemon rind complemented by grass and other herbal flavors. Good.

F: Perfect. Nicely carbonated and refreshing.

O: A fine beer.

L: bright gold permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 2" off-white cap with fair to good retention

S: berry, flower, topical fruit, melon and grass

T: Fruit, berry, grass and tangerine lead the flavors. It finishes with an assertive yet clean bitter with a bit of citrus rind

F: This medium bodied beer is creamy with medium soft carbonation

O: a flavorful, easy to drink American Pale Ale

Can dated 07/16/18 into a tulip glass. Slighty hazy yellow with nearly 2 finger of medium density white head with good retention and left mixed lacing. More grassiness than I expected, dank and floral undertones. Taste followed the nose well, more dank prominence. Finishes with moderate bitterness and slight acidity, drying the palate a bit. Low-medium bodied with medium carbonation, lively on the tongue, slick on the swallow. Nice Mosaic APA that I'd definitely grab again.

On-tap at Willimantic Brewing Co.

Pours a golden straw hue with a moderate white head.

Aromas of bready malt, fragrant rose, light lemon, bright but restrained orange, and grassy hops on the finish; incredibly balanced and approachable.

Taste brings plenty of earthy grass, a great balance of malt and hops, pine, light grapefruit, and plenty of orange peel, too; citrusy and really balanced.

Mouthfeel is dry, juicy, and ridiculously quenching.

Sessionable, easy on the palate, and the type of beer I could drink anytime, anywhere; subtle but impactful; a pale ale done very right.
