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.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Sparkling golden color, a lovely head adorns the top. Ripe ruby red grapefruit, fresh-cut grass, wildflowers, nutty yeast and a little cracker in the nose. Dryish medium body that throws down its crispness on the palate right away. Clean, sharp bitterness from the hops cuts right through the dry maltiness, leaving citric and herbal flavors in its wake. Maltiness digs in deep with a uniform biscuity flavor and a somewhat faint, raw graininess. Vague fruitiness and a quick showing of nutty yeast add some complexities without getting in the way. The pulling dryness really does tell the palate that this beer is well attenuated.

Love the theme behind this beer: It's not about being from one coast or the other-- just about being a quality beer. Prime example of the American Pale Ale style, it's incredibly drinkable.

This is one of my favorite beers. The mixture of hops are refreshing with a slight fruity flavor. Whether it's a hot summer day or a chilly autumn one, this beer is perfect.
