Beer added by: Skidz on 03-12-2010

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: About 1/2" of ivory foam. Very clear light gold color with lots of bubbles. Just a slight bit of lacing.
Smell: Nice aroma of light citrus hops with a bit of spice in the background. Very floral as well.
Taste: Prominent grapefruit taste which was a surprise coming after the smell as I expected a lighter hops taste. A little astringent and dry. Some malt in the background but not quite enough to balance the hops.
Mouthfeel: Average mouthfeel with a dry finish.

12oz, no date info
Alchemist pint glass

A: Crystal clear pale golden yellow color. So clear, almost BMC. Quarter finger of bright white head. Good carbonation.

S: Wow, great hop aroma on this. Amarillo? Cascade? Lots of delicious pine and citrus on the nose. Dare I say Zombie Dust like.

T: You get the hops up front, but it's not as aggressive as they smelled. You get those nice citrus like flavors. Orange marmalade, peach, some mild grapefruit. The malts do come into play in the middle to really clean this one up. Smooths it out. Nice mild finish. Not overly dry or bitter. Very sessionable.

M: Light bordering on medium.

O: Very nice little pale ale.

poured 12oz bottle into snifter

A - Light clear yellow/orange with a pillowy 2 finger white head. Fades into a thin ring and leaves behind plenty of chunky lacing.

S - Fresh tropical notes, pineapple, kiwi, passion fruit. A subdued sweet bready malt smell is hidden.

T - Dominated by fresh tropical notes of pineapple, kiwi, and passion fruit. A well balanced amount of malt blends nicely, bread, and some sweet nectar. The finish ends with a light bitterness. Warning, it is very easy to consume multiples of this beer very quickly.

M - Light bodied with nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is slick and oily with very little bitter bite.

O - This is a very tasty and refreshing PA. The hops are mostly fruit and bitterness is kept in check. Not malt dominated so it is a very easy drinking beer. Hey look, just another outstanding beer brewed by Dan himself.
