L: hazy yellow gold blanketed by a robust 3" of off-white to cream colored foam with a fine bead and fair to good retention

S: soft, moderate aromas of citrus and biscuity malts lightly scented by a hint of resin ditchweed

T: creamy and fruity supported by some wheat and a trace of oats accented by a moderate bitterness that is not overly harsh.

F: clean, creamy and smooth medium bodied beer with medium carbonation

O: very drinkable and repeatable - very suited as an all evening beer

i know everyone is really high on the hoppy beers modist is making right now, and i get it, they are on trend, dry hopped to oblivion, hazy, all of it, but this one is not amazing to me, there is a lot of green pellet hop taste to it, some burning harshness on the back end, and a heavier body from all the starchy haze than i need or want in an american pale of any persuasion. its pale and straw colored and almost impenetrable to light from the tap, although it does have a nice head on it with clinging lace as it drinks. aroma of fresh pine and bitter lemon, juicy on the dry hop but also with some early vegetal bitterness creeping in, and its there in the taste from about the midway point on, as much as it tastes good up front, its not so nice on the back half, really bitter and overdone, just taste like plants. and drinks heavy for a style i usually want to pound on. i like the malt base, i like the body, but its the hops here that steer it wrong. a beer full of potential but seemingly more concerned with being cool than tasting good. thats a judgement obviously, but thats how this presents itself to me...

This hazy Mosaic hop bomb APA is a joy to drink - juicy Mosaic hops all over the nose and the taste, a mouthfeel that is substantially bigger than the 5.5% ABV. This is world-class, IMHO.

This beer pours a hazy straw with a good sized head. The aroma is gentle and mostly tropical, with notes of guava, pineapple tangerine, passion fruit, orange peel, and a hint of cedar. The flavor is soft and sweet, with passion fruit, pineapple, papaya, underripe banana, guava, and a cascading creamy flavor. The mouthfeel is gentle and pillowy light with bubbling, soft carbonation. Overall a really nice beer - soft, mellow, gentle, easy going, and thoroughly enjoyable.

From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Cloudy yellow, good head.

Smell: Danky, mild citrus.

Taste: Mildly sweet, citrus, some lemon. Soft feel and easy drinking.

Overall: False Pattern is a nice cloudy pale, easy drinking and tasty. Seems to be a little more fruit/berry forward from the hops on tap than in the can. Can was more citrus/lemon forward.

It’s another shrink wrapped can my third of the evening is everything plastic— this particular one is decorated with maze artwork— and now I’m wondering if there’s a start/finish to the maze as it’s actually quite intricate— or is it really just a false pattern..

The can states “..brewed with a grip of oats and juicy hops”. I’m assuming a grip of oats means fist fulls — as in a lot. By the way, these oats show up later in a good way.

Pours the now popular/typical hazy PA/IPA style which is a cloudy pineapple yellowish orange. This has a foamy white cap that initially looks weak but thickens a bit as it lays down and is persistent and sticky at about a half inch.

I’m getting faint citrus notes, lemongrass, even fainter mango and papaya on the nose.

Taste is just like the smell only a bit stronger laying in the mango, papaya, peach, with a clean citrusy bitterness on the finish. An easy drinking tasty beer one can enjoy.

Body is straight up medium, but it holds well across the tongue and it must be the grip of oats lending some heft resulting in a soft but solid carb almost chewy. Very nice.

One of the better tropical hazy style PA’s for sure. I’d buy more and I’d like to see this amped up to a IPA.

Had this on tap at the Bulldog in Lowertown. The beer had a creamy yellow appearance wit a thin, but thick looking head. The aromas included orange hops with some grass while the taste was more like a sweet grapefruit and mango combination. Excellent, crisp carbonation. Overall, great aromas and mouthfeel.
