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 into becker pint glass; clear golden yellow with a huge fluffy rocky white head that leaves chunky lacing. Smell is light crisp bready malt, with lots of juicy citrus fruit hops, loads of floral scents as well. A delicious smelling pale ale. Taste is clean, crisp crackery malt with light citrusey hop flavors giving light bitterness to the nice clean, slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is creamy-smooth, really fine carbonation. Awesome APA here, glad I got two more in the variety pack...

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is a light shade of amber with golden highlights. It is topped with two inches of off-white head.

S - I smell some grapefruit. I get a little malt, as well.

T - This pale ale has quite the citrus flavor. The grapefruit that I smelled carried through to the taste. I have to really search to find any malt.

M - Medium with plenty of carbonation.

O - I was greatly impressed with this beer. For some reason I wasn't expecting much. It had great flavor for a pale ale. New Glarus has some fantastic beers.

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.
