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.

Delicious ! Juicy and very hazy. Exactly what I'm looking for in a neipa. Wish the ABV was a tad bit higher but I highly recommend!

Pours light hazy gold. Foamy, short, white head that lasts for a little while with light lacing.

Smells orange, Citrus, grapefruit and dank.

Taste grapefruit, orange, citrus peel, like pineapple, Brady hints and light vegetal. Finish is dry with citrus Linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

Top of the heap for me. This is the right direction for the American Pale Ale. Well done, well done.

L-Hazy yellow/tan color

S-Pineapple, ripe oranges, a pretty strong catty garlic/onion aroma, and a spicy black pepper led dimension as well.

T-Ripe oranges, some tropical fruits, light cattiness...stronger black pepper like spiciness..

F-Medium light bodied...creamy and smooth. Easy drinker.

O-Kind of a different take with a bit of a Belgian yeasty impression blended with some citrus and tropical fruits and the catty notes as well. It's OK.
