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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy pale gold with ample amount of merengue white froth.

Citrus fruits, floral, sweet grain and basic malt. Really nothing special.

Malt covering hops. Saccharine sweetness, pine and Lemon Pledge. Almost taste corn adjunct. Has a metallic ring to it.

Mouthfeel is medium with some hop tongue tingling. Hop rings thru the cranium.

No date on bottle and I would guess this is over 3 months old. I had some earlier this year and actually had a score of 4.2. Friend of mine just brought these down. I would love to try another for sure but for right now it's nothing I would buy.

This pours a clear, golden amber color with a slight off-white head. The scent is rich with bitter hops and that’s about it. The taste is fairly light and smooth. As far as the hops go, this is a very easy drinking pale ale. Moon Man is good the way it is, but boy it should would be amazing to see this beer with a little thicker volume and hopped up. Clean, refreshing, and delicious; just the way New Glarus makes ‘em.

I can't imagine a better APA than this. Super drinkable and sessionable. Huge grassy, piney, and citrusy nose right out of the bottle. The taste is sublime. All the notes of your favorite DIPA dialed down into a sessionable format. The mouthfeel is very round and easy to drink again and again. It's got just enough malt sweetness to appeal to folks that avoid hoppy brews too. I could stock this for the entire summer and be happy.

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.
