12oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.
A - Good clarity on a light golden pale ale. I got a medium sized off-white head that receded to a small cap. Small bits of lacing on the glass.
S - Dank piney hops, a little citrus just pouring out of the glass. Light malt deep inside loads of fresh hops.
T - Those light malts hold up a little better in the flavor. Has a citrusy hop flavor that is second to none. There is some sharpness to the bittering that fits perfect. Finishes up pretty dry with that hop flavor lingering for a little while.
M - Light to moderate body, dry to semi-dry, light to moderate carbonation.
O - This beer could use a little better head retention. Piney hops could easily rival the hoppiest of double IPAs. I loved the citrus hop flavor in this beer. For a beer that labels itself as "No Coast" Pale Ale, maybe a little west coast. I thought this beer was super one sided with little malt character to restrain the hops, I mean that in a good way. I have to believe this beer has a lot of Simcoe hops. Thankfully,this will now be my go to beer as I am lucky enough to live in Wisconsin.

12oz bottle, 337th day of 2013, poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 2/15/2014. Finally getting around to reviewing this one...
App- Light straw-orange body, nice 1 finger white head, solid retention, nice lacing
Smell- Citrus, pineapple, passion fruit, caramel, bread. Nice hops presence yet balanced
Flavour- More earthy with a dab of passion fruit and pineapple. A good bit of caramel and bread. Balanced and delicious.
Mouthfeel- Medium bodied, carbonation is just about right for an APA. Not too bitter, easy to session should one want to.
Overall- Nice sessionable APA, flavourful and tasty enough. This is probably the best Wisconsin-produced APA I've come across so far in 5 years living in Wisconsin. It stands up fairly well to the more popular APAs especially when it comes to pricing.
