Eleven separate additions of cascade hops give this American pale ale its lush citrus aroma and bold hop flavor without crazy bitterness.

3.62/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Served chilled...

A) This brew settles in the glass a hazed orange. There was about a finger of foam, which bubbles about, before settling to a collar. Not much lacing.

S) Quite nice... Piney and a some grapefruit with a light sugar dusting.

T) The nose on this is a bit sweeter than the flavor that follows. This has a pleasant hop bitterness that is piney/grassy and features some citrus rind and zest. The malt balances this out well enough.

M) Fairly light, but not thin or watery by any means. The carbonation has some zip, and this stays crisp and refreshing. The citrus rind lingers a bit on the finish.

O) A nice APA right here. Definitely worth a try. Glad to recommend...

A wonderful APA. I have never heard of this beer.brewery before a friend from Wisconsin - who makes a yearly New Glarus beer run for me when he goes home - brought back a bottle. I coaxed it out of him - I am glad that I did!*S*

Appearence - poured into a DFH logo snifter - pours an orange/brown with a medium head and very nice lacing. A very pretty looking brew.

Smell - I could smell the hops when i cracked open the bottle! Always a plus! Smell in the glass not as intense. Still can pick up a nice subtle flavor.

Taste - Nice hop taste with a subtle malt background.

Mouthfeel - smooth - I have to remind myself this beer is an APA and not a DIPA. Very drinkable.

Overall - a very nice, hoppy APA. I now know when my friend returns to Wisconsin, I will be requesting more of this beer and I will look to see if it has a cousin of the "Imperial" style?
The people of Madison and the great Dairy State are a lucky bunch!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Well hazed medium orange color. A little over one finger of creamy off-white head. Retention is about average and a short ring of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Bready malts and yeast. Citrusy hoppiness with plenty of orange and lesser amounts of mango and papaya. Also some sugariness. Not overpowering, but pleasant for an APA.

4.0 T: Moderate neutral malt sweetness with a touch of bready yeastiness, but clean overall. Mild, but superbly pleasant citrusy hoppiness. Perfect for an easy drinking APA.

4.0 M: Medium to slightly heavier body. Lower end of good carbonation, which works. There's some weight to this brew without it being either chewy or creamy. Quite nice.

4.5 D: This is so easy to drink. Mild, but sufficient hoppiness, super clean, and well balanced puts this one as a winner.
