COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops with an American accent. Disarmingly drinkable.

This is listed as a summer brew, however It was not available in the store (in Madison, where it is brewed) until almost December. Hoppy and delightful beer, with a bit too bitter of an aftertaste. Overall good, but not a beer I would drink multiple of in a row.

Medium copper, translucent pour with a small head that leaves a bit of lace. Aroma is fairly mild with a bit of citrus and straw. Flavor follows suit. Medium body with slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent hazy orange looking color with a slight transparency about it that allowed a fair carbonation to be seen rising. There was less than a finger’s worth of head. The smell was based around some light sweet pine with just a tad of light sweet caramel malt. The taste was mainly sweet around the piney hops and sweet caramel malts. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s nothing off and there’s nothing spectacular about it. Overall, an everyday APA worthy of having again and would probably be a pretty good pizza beer.

SHANER4 (479) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - poured golden color with medium white head. Aroma - cereal, grains and yeasty. Taste - clean refreshing fresh grains and alittle grassy. Palate - thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Finish is mildly bitter and has grassy aftertaste. Overall an ok PA. Very light and extremely drinkable.

TXBadger (1334) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Good everyday pale ale. Pours a nice amber hue. Light hoppy pine on the nose. Pine and bread balance on the palate, with just a bit of hop bitterness on the finish.

patrick767 (3566) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
bottle, very old notes - Pours light copper-amber with a quickly fading one finger head. It has a mild hoppy aroma. The flavor is sweet malt with a little caramel and perhaps a touch of citrus. It’s bland and not very crisp. Mediocre to average beer.

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 15, 2014
On tap at the local pizza place. Pours a pale orange with a spongey white head. Aroma has citrus & pine with light caramelly malts. Taste follows, although in subtle parts. Light to medium bodied. Finishes light malty with some citrus. Shrug? Not annoying in any fashion but nothing over the top either.

NickButters (5) - Stevens Point, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 2, 2014 does not count
I think this is a good beer for people who enjoy I.P.A.s but dont want to be passed out by the end of the golf outing. A sweeter substitute that you can enjoy in a multitude.

beerbaaron (1198) - Arizona, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Pours clear (turning hazy after full pour) orange amber. Very small white head. Old bottle? Aroma is muddled; light bready, perhaps a touch of grass, a little something else that’s not really apparent.. Flavor has a little more to say; bready, light fruity, pleasant, thin, easy enough to put down. Lighter medium body. On the sweeter side. Very very mild bitterness if at all. Slightly dry finish. Its a good backyard beer...
