Appearance: Pours a clear golden yellow with three fingers of fluffy, bubbly off-white foam.
Smell: Softly pungent fruity hop aroma consisting of pineapple, mango, and apricot. Little bit of pine and some earthiness as well.
Taste: Pine, grapefruit, semi-toasted malt, and a nutty finish. Great balance between hops and malts.
Mouthfeel: Fairly light bodied, crisp, well-carbonated, and refreshing.
Overall, Moon Man is yet another well-executed beer from New Glarus. Nothing too unique but at a sessionable 5% this APA has quite a lot of flavor. They're not trying to reinvent the wheel here and that's ok. What they've done instead is created a tasty pale ale that's extremely well-balanced and incredibly smooth. I'm a huge APA and IPA fan but for some reason I prefer New Glarus' lagers and maltier ales to their hoppy beers. Still, this is a really enjoyable brew and a solid take on the style.
