Stopped at the tap room and had a pint of this, their house draft.
Review from notes.
Served in a pint, it was a hazy unfiltered gold, with a crown of intricate lacing. There was a finger of head that receded to a thick skim across the surface. Retention was good. Green, leafy, earthy hops in the nose. Seemed like it would be fairly bitter based on aroma alone.
The flavor definitely delivered what the nose hinted at. Firm hop bitterness, grassy and earthy, with a lingering dry green hop finish. Malt complexity in the middle. Light bodied and sessionable for sure. A nice effort from a new Iowa brewery. It reminded me a little of our hometown classic in Chicago, Daisy Cutter from Half Acre.

Ours hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Lacing sticks.
The smell is of musty nectarine and mandarin orange.
The taste is of nectarine with a balancing biscuity sweet balance. It has a long finish.
It is chewy - fuller side of a light-bodied pale ale. Very refreshing!
There is a balanced bittersweet fruitiness that makes this a nice, refreshing brew! A "sessionable", balanced, vibrant American Pale Ale.

16oz poured in a shaker pint on draft at Craftsman in Middleton, WI today, 1/29/2014.
App- clear orange-copper body with a clean white 1 finger head, good retention, good lacing.
Smell- crisp breadiness, hints of caramel and floral notes. Surprisingly not so hoppy.
Flavour- tastes like a crisp pilsner, bready and caramelly with floral hops. Not bitter at all.
Mouthfeel- medium bodied, well carbonated, easy to drink but by no means bitter.
Overall- decent pale ale, tastes more like a pilsner. Not that great and I suggest looking for better options.
