Availability: Year-round

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.

3.78/5  rDev -8.3%

Bottle date of 2241 - Augist 12, 2011 - a little past its prime.
Poured in to tulip glass.

A - Pale straw yellow; translucent. One finer of bubbly white head.

S - Crisp hop bitterness up front wit a big grapefruit aroma. Very slight malt sweetness is evident.

T - Light hop bitterness up front with hints of grapefruit and orange. A good balance from the caramel malt backbone that provides the right amount of sweetness.

M - Light to medium body. Light carbonation.

O - Probably past its prime but still a good APA. Would love to try a fresh bottle.

A: clear honey straw color, foamy white head, somewhat sticky lacing, well carbonated

S: very nice citrus and piney hop aromas dominates, caramel malt notes, spicy

T: follows the nose with the piney and citrus hops and a subtle malt backbone, there is also a nice sweetness to it.

M: nice bite from the carbonation, medium bodied, very little bitterness but also not too sweet. very mild and pleasant aftertaste.

O: very good beer, I enjoyed it a lot. It enjoyed the hop profile and the fact that it wasn't very bitter. Another great beer from New Glarus.
