Availability: Year-round

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.

12 oz bottle from a case dated May 2nd.

A: Hazy golden body with generous amount of head. Excellent retention and lacing. Great looking APA.

S: Freshly cut mango, other tropical fruits. Some grains.

T: Front of the tongue is tropical fruit from the hops, not too bitter. Balances out well with a light malt backbone.

M: Generous amount of carbonation, almost like a Belgian.

O: Excellent APA from New Glarus. Almost 3 months old, but holds up really well.

12oz bottle, code 1483 (May 28th?), into a Duvel tulip.

A: Clear pale amber body under two fingers of fine off-white head. Pretty good retention, moderate lace. Attractive.

S: Nothing but fresh, vibrant, aromatic hops. Mango stands out, along with pine, grapefruit, lychee, and floral honey. Excellent.

T: The hops are dominant up front (delightfully so), with an excellent balance of tropical fruit and resinous pine. Midway through a touch of breadiness shows up as well, and the finish winds up almost startlingly clean and crisp. Low bitterness, complete dryness. Wow.

M: Light-to-medium body, lots of creamy carbonation. Maybe a touch too effervescent, but excellent all the same.

O: This is absolutely one of my favorite APAs, right up there with NEBCO Galaxy Pale Ale and Toppling Goliath PseudoSue. Like those (but unlike the IPA-in-disguise Zombie Dust) it manages to deliver wonderful hop aroma and flavor without overwhelming the back end with bitterness. If I still lived in Wisconsin, this would be in my fridge at all times.

Cheers!
