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.

a great great session beer, drinkable in every way. pours a relaxed pale color with a little more than an inch of white foamy head. the nose is balanced between american pale malt and bittering hops, nothing to distinct about the hops here. ale yeast is obvious, providing some toasted biscuit notes. the flavor too is quite yeasty for an american pale ale, and i like it in this case. bittering hops on the back end, fresh wholegrain toast on the front end. dry mouthfeel, average carbonation, and just a little thin in terms of body. there is nothing too unique about this beer, maybe the stronger yeast presence, but this is an all day every day kind of session beer, perfect in all seasons, at any time. a delightful beer to drink in high quantities.

Pours a brilliant deep golden color with a frothy one and a half inch ivory head that dissipates slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.

Dank hops, cannabis, and grapefruit begin the aroma. Wow, that's a lotta grapefruit! There's some bready malt sweetness in there somewhere.

Yep, there's some grapefruit in the flavor. And some lightly grainy, bready malt in there...somewhere. Man, this would go great with a grapefruit!

Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch toward the high side.

Grapefruit. In a glass. With some toast.

Brought this back from Christmas break at my parents' house in wisconsin. I've had it before on tap, but never out of a bottle. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a lush goldenrod color with a slight haze and a two finger head. A few columns of quickly moving bubbles ascend to the top.

S - Strong pine and citrus scent, with maybe a hint of more tropical fruits. Very nice.

T - Starts crisp with some acidity and citrusy-bite, but finishes with a nice malt backbone. The aftertaste is a lingering breadiness that reminds me of a half-toasted English muffin.

M - Medium, with some noticeably energetic carbonation.

O - Great beer. A solid representation of the style across the board if you ask me. Very drinkable, but not boring.
