Notes/Commercial Description:
You hold a session beer with a bright bold blend of five hops that flirt obligingly with the smooth malty backside. Don't let this one lay around it is brewed to be enjoyed today. Bold and engaging without pretense, because in Wisconsin you do not have to be extreme to be real.

4.33/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Obtained a 6 pk on a recent trip to Milwaukee. 12 oz bottle into a tumbler pint.

A - Gold, clear, and crowned with a slightly rocky head of 1.5 fingers of white foam.

S - Grassy, fruity, and earthy hops. Not the strongest bouquet, but pleasant enough and inviting.

T - Fantastic. The citric and green, almost flowery hops are ascendant, but blend nicely w underlying tones of fresh baked bread and earthier flavors. Finishes juicy and just a hint tart.

M - Thin side of medium body, w lively carbonation that makes this very quaffable. The finish is just dry enough to encourage another sip immediately.

O - Textbook APA w an easy-to-session taste and ABV level. This is an amazing brew, and I hope Wisconsinites don't take it for granted.

3.95/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance - Golden body. Clear. Nice head. Settles to a medium collar with a bit of lacing.

Smell - Cracker malt. Citrus hops. More hops than malt.

Taste - Bright citrus up front, blends into a cracker malt. The hop flavor becomes more grassy in the middle and bitterness rises. The malt does show a bit of sweetness in the very end. As it warms, it gets a bit estery as well.

Mouthfeel - Remarkably drinkable. Crisp, light. Well carbonated.

Overall - I had trouble finishing the review before I finished the bottle. Excellent pale ale.
