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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a can-shaped glass.

A- Light, foamy pale white head forms three fingers thick. Hazy pale golden body with occasional spurts of carbonation.

S- Melon and citrus are big and bold. Hop resin hits the nose with a second whiff. It's a heavily fruity profile with hints of sweetness.

T- The citrus take its time to arrive and hit the palate, but then it builds into a strong orange peel flavor. Melon flavors waft in and out as well. The finish is resinous and offers a dose of pine.

M- It's impressive how refreshing and light drinking this is. The slight downside is that it initially feels a bit watered down until the hops hit with some flavor and an aggressive bitterness. It's still got enough sweetness to suggest there's some malt in there and this plays well of the melon flavors. It's an interesting blend of flavors and feels.

This could easily be my summer go-to. It's not filling, it's refreshing and it is full of interesting and tasty flavors. It's a gem.
