Special thanks to BeerFMAndy for sending me this brew as part of a fantastic Wisconsin monster box that he sent.
A: Pours a dark, yet glistening orange color, with a nice inch or so white head that kept it's retention throughout the session.
S: Soft pine and grapefruit with hint of a floral nature.
T: The name speaks for itself. The balance is fantastic and the citrus profile is nicely done without being too hoppy or bitter. I would rank the smooth refreshing aftertaste up there with some of the best APAs on the market!
M: Thick, without being too. The ABV is perfect for the style and the balance between the sweet and bitter elements is perfect.
D: I could drink this all day long.... if only I could click my heels together and end up in Wisconsin.

12oz bottle, best by 5/12/2014. Poured into an O'so snifter today, 3/24/2014.
App- Hazy light copper-orange body, one finger white head with good retention and thick, sticky lacing. Looks the part of a good American Pale Ale.
Smell- Dank, floral, grassy hops, a bit of citrus as well. Not much in way of a malt backbone. A little bit of caramel sweetness and that's about it. Hop-forward nose.
Flavour- True to the name, this is a hop-centric pale ale. Floral, dank hops dominate, supplemented by a little bit of citrus grapefruit. The pale malt backbone brings a bit of caramel and a musty graininess. Finish is a bit of citrus bitterness mixed in with some grassiness.
Mouthfeel- Thinner bodied, on the verge of watery. But easy to drink, bitter enough but not overwhelmingly bitter that it gets in the way of my enjoyment as a "just-got-home-from-work" beer. Resinous, dank and appropriately dry.
Overall- Good drinking, nice and hoppy APA. Not mindblowingly good, but a solid buy for an everyday drinking APA.
