Pours clear gold with what at first seems like minimal carbonation but with a more vigorous pour a pretty, white head forms and never really goes away. Each sip seems to leave more and more lace on the sides of the glass. Hugely citrus aroma. I especially get lemons and a bit of grapefruit. The taste is full of citrus as well, suggesting a fresh leafy hoppiness that I quite like. The bitterness from the hops is somewhat muted but definitely there; it's just not as assertive as some other American pale ales. The mouthfeel is very soft and the finish is quite fruity and a touch dry. The citrus aroma and flavor in some ways reminds me of Three Floyds Gumballhead. All of these qualities make Moon Man an exceptionally drinkable ale.

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.
