From notes. Thanks stousnipas.
Poured from a small capped bottle into a pint glass.
Clear golden, white head, average retention and lacing.
Aroma is hoppy, but not as expected, actually quite subtle. Citric notes, some grass, bread, minimal spices.
Watery on the palate, with a lot less hops than on the aroma. Subtle citric fruitiness. Not a lot else.
Not NG best effort.

I have been encouraged by people all over WI to try this brew. The first time I ever had it was on tap. I proceeded to have it in the bottle and then a third time on tap so I feel pretty comfortable with where I am at with this beer. I even submitted this beer to a blinded APA taste challenge since I am known to be anti-New Glarus. As soon as nose gets anywhere near the glass you instantly get a really impressive hop aroma. One of the better noses of any APA I have had recently. As soon as the beer hits your lips, so does the disappointment. You get a tiny bit of flavor waaay up front, but that is most likely the nose spilling over into the mouth. Instantly the taste fades and you are left with nothingness in the mouth. Nothingness.
In the blinded taste test, the beer finished third behind Three Floyd’s Zombie Dust and Half Acre Daisey Cutter while ahead of Hopalicious and Pearl Street Pale Ale. This is a 3.0 beer if I have ever had one.
A side note - I refuse to rate appearance so every beer gets the same score as overall. Smell, taste, and mouth are the only things that truly matter when rating a beer.

This missed the mark for me. Something about it is medicinal. It pours with virtually no head, and retains none. Hardly any nose either. I struggled to get past the medicinal taste but simply couldn't. Not sure if I got a bad bottle or what, but it certainly wasn't pleasurable and ended up being a drainpour.
