Picked up a 6 pack at Woodman's Market in Madison. Poured into a pint glass to give a nice clear golden ting witha 1/2 inch of white head thatlingered for a while but eventually dissipated to a thin film atop the beer. Very lemon smell with some grapefruit and grassy notes. Tastes fairly balanced with malts and hops for about 1/2 second and then a hop bomb is dropped on your tongue. Lots of citrus and some grassy/piney flavors and a nice bitter finish. Excellent hop profile on this APA. Mouthfeel is very smooth. With an IPA profile and an pale ale ABV, I could drink this all night long. If only I lived in Wisconsin.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.
A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.
S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.
T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.
M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.
This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.
