12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

Appearance - Golden body. Clear. Nice head. Settles to a medium collar with a bit of lacing.

Smell - Cracker malt. Citrus hops. More hops than malt.

Taste - Bright citrus up front, blends into a cracker malt. The hop flavor becomes more grassy in the middle and bitterness rises. The malt does show a bit of sweetness in the very end. As it warms, it gets a bit estery as well.

Mouthfeel - Remarkably drinkable. Crisp, light. Well carbonated.

Overall - I had trouble finishing the review before I finished the bottle. Excellent pale ale.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My third beer from the New Glarus mixed variety twelve pack, gifted to me from my mom on a recent excursion to Wisconsin.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a nice bright golden orange colored body with just over a finger of creamy sudsy white head. Leaves some nice thick scattered lacing on the glass. Looks very nice.

S - The smell is bright, floral, fresh, and appealing. Creamy, piney, grapefruit, oranges, and the perfect balance of bready honeyed malt.

T - The taste follows the nose - bright, juicy, and fresh tasting. Pine, oranges, grapefruit. Once again, perfectly balanced with the bready honeyed malt. A delicious American pale ale.

M - The feel is smooth, crisp, and clean. Lightly hoppy & bitter on the finish. Medium-light bodied with excellent carbonation. A deliciously easy drinker.

Overall, a classic example of the style; I would surely get this all the time if it was available to me in Illinois. This rivals some of the bigger and badder fresh Pipeworks DIPA's I've had in terms of ingredients / hoppiness and freshness. Extremely crisp, balanced, and delicious for an American pale ale. Highly recommended.
