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.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 28 June 2014

Appearance: Significantly lighter in color than SNPA (my standard of comparison). This one is golden yellow with no hints of brown or amber. Pours with a beautiful one and a half finger head that leaves considerable lacing.

Smell: Clean and hoppy, with notes of pine and citrus. Slight malt sweetness, but not much.

Taste: A marvelously balanced APA. The malt backbone here is considerably lighter than other APAs I've had, and to great effect. The beer is lightened just a tad by this and, as a result, isn't nearly as sticky sweet as some darker APAs can be. The malts carry the hops, which add decent, but not over-the-top, citrus and pine flavors. A hint of hop spice and bitterness as well.

Mouthfeel: Lively carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass makes this one sharp and bubbly on the tongue, and adds some nice depth.

Overall: An incredible APA and one I would very highly recommend. On the lighter end of the color and hop spectrum, and to great original effect.
