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.

Appearance- huge, HUGE puffy off-white head with a big carbonation party, golden color

Smell- pungent citrus notes of tangerine and mandarin from cascades or centennials, pale malt sweetness underneath

Taste- nice light malt character on the front, gives way to a robust middle with a hit of grain, leaves with a dash of hop bitterness

Mouthfeel- light body with a carbonation tingle on the tongue, it finishes fast with a dry exit

Overall- definitely enjoyed this beer and could have had another 3. A true pale by definition but I wouldn't have minded a bit more linger on the finish.

This missed the mark for me. Something about it is medicinal. It pours with virtually no head, and retains none. Hardly any nose either. I struggled to get past the medicinal taste but simply couldn't. Not sure if I got a bad bottle or what, but it certainly wasn't pleasurable and ended up being a drainpour.
