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.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a half-finger of white foam.

Getting great citrus from the hops, pineapple notes with some pine and a little barnyard funk too. It'd be tough to me to imagine an APA smelling better than this.

Biscuity flavors balance out the grapefruit citrus. Crispness on teh back end is tremendous. Yum.

I poured this beer into a glass, it has a golden yellow body with little fizzy head. The smell is herbal and grapefruit. The taste is very crisp, taste the citrus, very well balanced of hops and malts. The mouth feel is very nice and over all a great beer.
