Pours a dark golden color with a big white head, and plenty of lacing. Smell and taste is a mild hoppy pine bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and refreshing though. Not bad, but way better Pale Ales out there.

Ok I live in a rural area in west wisc. This is about as good as it gets. some of the brewery tap rooms have better beer but I can get this almost everywhere. this is wisconsin's version of summit EPA meaning its good, available everywhere and widely known. comparing it to EPA. it is less bitter malt about the same hop flavor better! a really nice everyday beer!

12oz bottle. My ONLY complaint about NG is they don't date their bottles... More important for a hopped up pale than some of their other offerings... Yeah I love NG, but when they write on the bottle "Don't let this one lay around it is brewed to be enjoyed today", not dating the beer seems very contradictory-- who knows how long this one has been sitting on the shelves. Okay rant over.

Look is crystal clear light amber, dark straw. About two fingers of foam that recede slowly. Some decent lacing.

Aroma is hops, pine, grass, citrus, a bit malty as well. Crisp, clean, but a bit of complexity with the malts.

Taste is perfect. Seriously, just classic, clean, crisp, bitter yet sweet. Hoppy yet malty. Spot on. Not as hop forward as some other highly rated pales but this one has better balance.

Feel is light, butter finish, lowish carbonation for the style. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Overall, fantastic beer. It is not the most unique APA in the world but it is an excellent example of the style. It does everything right.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy golden orange color. A one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell was awesome. Pure light spicy infused sweet citrus blend to bitter pine tones, full and graceful under my nose. The taste was superb as it had the spice combine awesome with the sweet subtly to lead to a semi-wet citrus/dry piney aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat sharp but still good for its style and for me. This one was definitely sessionable and would be exceptional with its respected food. Overall, I say this was an exceptional APA that I’m so glad to have tried.
