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.

Obtained a 6 pk on a recent trip to Milwaukee. 12 oz bottle into a tumbler pint.

A - Gold, clear, and crowned with a slightly rocky head of 1.5 fingers of white foam.

S - Grassy, fruity, and earthy hops. Not the strongest bouquet, but pleasant enough and inviting.

T - Fantastic. The citric and green, almost flowery hops are ascendant, but blend nicely w underlying tones of fresh baked bread and earthier flavors. Finishes juicy and just a hint tart.

M - Thin side of medium body, w lively carbonation that makes this very quaffable. The finish is just dry enough to encourage another sip immediately.

O - Textbook APA w an easy-to-session taste and ABV level. This is an amazing brew, and I hope Wisconsinites don't take it for granted.

12oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.

A - Good clarity on a light golden pale ale. I got a medium sized off-white head that receded to a small cap. Small bits of lacing on the glass.

S - Dank piney hops, a little citrus just pouring out of the glass. Light malt deep inside loads of fresh hops.

T - Those light malts hold up a little better in the flavor. Has a citrusy hop flavor that is second to none. There is some sharpness to the bittering that fits perfect. Finishes up pretty dry with that hop flavor lingering for a little while.

M - Light to moderate body, dry to semi-dry, light to moderate carbonation.

O - This beer could use a little better head retention. Piney hops could easily rival the hoppiest of double IPAs. I loved the citrus hop flavor in this beer. For a beer that labels itself as "No Coast" Pale Ale, maybe a little west coast. I thought this beer was super one sided with little malt character to restrain the hops, I mean that in a good way. I have to believe this beer has a lot of Simcoe hops. Thankfully,this will now be my go to beer as I am lucky enough to live in Wisconsin.
