5/5 rDev +21.1%
Pours a great clear gold. This is exactly what I imagine a APA looking like whenever I have one.
This is probably my favorite smelling beer, if not my favorite smell... Oranges, mango, pine and a good floral charachter.
Tastes as good as it smells. It starts with a small citrus precense, orange, lemon, mango and lime. Then the bitter pine bite comes through. A real nice malt backbone on it to, finishes with a bready malt, no real after taste just clean and delicious.
The mouthfeel is crisp and delicious. Carbonated and sharp. Perfect.
Well I know I am from WI so that gives me bias... But with that being said IPA/APA is my favorite style and I have had some of the big hitters, Alpha King, SNPA, Dales, Lagunitas Pale and many more. While those are all good and great beers to me none of them are as good as Moon Man.
This IMO is a perfect pale. I doubt I will ever have a better pale but I hope I can because it must taste insane.

Clear golden with a 3 inch fluffy head. White and excellent lacing.
Fresh hops and malt on the nose, smells and tastes balanced, but the hops are the star. Juicy citrus, with notes of orange and a bit of pine. Very easy drinker as it should be at 5%, not a sign of off putting tastes. This is a keeper. Hope it keeps coming out.

a: clear light golden straw body. full fingers worth of bright white sudsy foam with decent retention and lacing.
s: citrus hops, malts and grains, maybe some wheat.
t: malts and grains with a good hop presence, but not overpowering hops, very well blended.
m: kinda thin to start but gets thicker on the finish. good carbonation with a slight dry bite on the finish.
o: very good session beer. the brewers dont try to overpower the drink with hops. this is what a pale ale should be.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. If I'm reading the date code right, it was bottled on December 21, 2011 at 8:33 AM (That amount of specificity is clearly important). Received in a trade with Willseph - thanks!
Pours a crystal straw color with a finger of white head. Head fades slowly and leaves a few mm of lacing. Lots of carbonation bubbles.
This is a delicious-smelling beer. A deep backbone of malt and wonderful citrus-floral hops.
Bright hops! Deep malt! Grains! My biggest pet peeve about APAs is that they always seem to want to be IPAs. This beer does not have that problem. The hops, while prominent, are not overpowering. The balance is near-perfect.
Body is light, carbonation is refreshing. Sticks in your mouth the perfect amount of time, and the bitterness doesn't overstay its welcome.
This is a fantastic pale ale, and I highly recommend it. As always, I am jealous of Wisconsinites.
