I had this for the first time about six to eight months ago, ive been keeping beer notes since before then. I gave this a 10 outta 10 in my personal notes from when i first tried it and was looking forward to trying again.
the appearance and smell of this beer is great and couldn't smell better, hints of citrusy hops and a well balnaced pale reinforce this beer.
there is medium carbonation and great well balanced mouthfeel in this beer.
the taste is... well... indescribable. perfect balance when it comes to the hops, malts and wheat-barley. my go to pale ale is summits e.p.a. most pale ales are either not hoppy enough or too hoppy and should be classified as an i.p.a. this is PERFECT in every aspect not only as a pale ale but as a easy to drink - everyday - sessionable brew. AWESOME. if there is a better pale ale out there... SHOW ME! I LOVE THIS BEER, wish i didn't have to visit my inlaws to get it, also wish that i could get this in a 12 pack instead of just a six! sooo gooody goooosh good!!! (whatever that means?) buy it! try it! love it!

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My third beer from the New Glarus mixed variety twelve pack, gifted to me from my mom on a recent excursion to Wisconsin.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a nice bright golden orange colored body with just over a finger of creamy sudsy white head. Leaves some nice thick scattered lacing on the glass. Looks very nice.
S - The smell is bright, floral, fresh, and appealing. Creamy, piney, grapefruit, oranges, and the perfect balance of bready honeyed malt.
T - The taste follows the nose - bright, juicy, and fresh tasting. Pine, oranges, grapefruit. Once again, perfectly balanced with the bready honeyed malt. A delicious American pale ale.
M - The feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Lightly hoppy & bitter on the finish. Medium-light bodied with excellent carbonation. A deliciously easy drinker.
Overall, a classic example of the style; I would surely get this all the time if it was available to me in Illinois. This rivals some of the bigger and badder fresh Pipeworks DIPA's I've had in terms of ingredients / hoppiness and freshness. Extremely crisp, balanced, and delicious for an American pale ale. Highly recommended.
