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.

Moderately strong citrus-dominated aroma. Clear pale gold, 1/2 inch thick only slightly off-white head, leaving plenty of lacing. Moderate amount of visible bubbles. Thick and smooth mouth feel for the style. Very slight initial bittering that quickly fades away. The flavor is mostly from the hops, and is a very nice orange juice citrus; not bitter acid citrus like many have. Very mild and smooth contribution from the malts. The aftertaste is juicy orange fading nicely inviting another drink. Absolutely wonderful. This one might cause me to drive to Hudson more often!

Can purchased 8/17/17 in Wisconsin (and nowhere else). Poured into Teku glass.

L: Clear amber. 2F head with decent retention, some lacing, and a cap and ring.

S: Nice grapefruit and lemon notes and light cracker malts.

T: Generally follows nose. Hops are more reserved and rounded rather than in your face. Malts there. Finish very slightly bitter.

F: Light to medium body, a little heavier maybe than it should be. Moderately carbonated. Fairly crisp and refreshing.

O: Good session ale.

A pleasant surprise... I appreciate there are still "American Pale Ales" out there, not just "Session IPA's" (silly, no?)

Nice look, lacing, and body on this. Hops are modest, but perhap I've just had my taste buds obliterated by the heavy-handed IPAs that modern microbreweries feel obligated to make (...and give scary, threatening names).

Best pale ale I've had in the central time zone. New Glarus takes care to do their beers right, seeming to have the magic touch. Any brewery that can make great spontaneously-/open-fermented fruit sours AND a good IPA*??? That's Bo Jackson shit.

*Mikkeller doesn't count. If I have to explain, you're on the wrong site. Google "rate beer"

Light amber-orange with a thick, soft white foam blanket.

Smell is really clean and distinct orange and lemon with a lightly dank hop perfume that's limey and grassy.

Taste adds more bitter pine wood to the orange and lemon of the nose, with some corn as well.

Light bodied with a full froth and a semi-wet finish.

12 oz bottle, thanks bro- Pours clear with a very light haze and a medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy hops, grain, light malt presence. The taste is floral, candy sweetness, grassy hops, everything well balanced and tasty. Usually i don't like candy sweetness in my beer, but New Glarus seems to make it work, good shit.

Pours an effervescent gold with a pinky of ivory colored head. Nice lacing & head retention

S: Breadyness & citrus

T: Follows the nose, a little pear & dryness up front. Faint tangerine, a little dryness & some crackery notes as this warms. Finishes crisp,a little dry, slightly bready, & little lemon

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation & pretty good balance

Easy to drink, a decent take on the style
