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.

Tasted 30 October 2012, reviewed from notes.

Pours a bright pale orange-yellow. I love the color. Completely clear, with a thin stream of bubbles in the center of the glass. One finger of white head, dense but not long-lasting. Pretty good lacing on the edges.

Smell is delightfully hoppy. Loads of bright citrus, lemon and grapefruit with a touch of orange. Hint of pine, some warm grainy malts providing backing. I really like this. A bit tingly.

Taste is quite nice as well. Smooth, balanced, a decent chunk of hop flavor without much bite. Citrus again. Malts come through more strongly, light grains, a little earthy.

Light body, tingly carbonation that gradually fades out. The feel and the flavor disappear around a bend together, drying out, right when I want them to. Very nice.

I really like this beer. Happy I finally tried it - I could drink a whole lot of it. Smell is the definite highlight, but everything else works together quite well. Refreshing, smooth, and clean.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a crystal clear golden color. There was a bit of an off-white head on it that didn’t linger long. Some lacing to it. The aroma is nice. Mainly a lighter pine and grapefruit hop nose. It has a very nice taste to it. a nice upfront flavor of pine and grapefruit hops, but not too strong or overly bitter. Medium bodied. Clean and refreshing. A good choice.

Poured from a twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Pours light copper, cloudy, with 1/4 inch of white foam. Hoppy nose. Swirling blend nose. Taste is a thin non-nonsense malt with a subtle hop bump. One of the lightest pales I've ever had. Simple, yet elegant. Quite good, actually. Simplicity counts for something.
