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.

4.16/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
