Yes, itís underhopped - being a ípale aleí, thatís the point, and why Iím rating it very highly. íHoppyí flavor is a by-product of American craft brews, which I find distasteful, & tiring - literally. Great floral flavors pervade this brew. It also has a light citrus flavor (not overpowering Belgian style), & the color is lovely. I was not expecting much more than Chicago Goose Island, but was so pleasantly surprised. Hats off from a very critical beer connoisseur!

Although not typical of APA's (which have gone over the edge in hoppiness), I liked it. Pours a golden straw with a one finger head that dissipated quickly. Medium carbonation and very subtle citrus notes. In the end, closer to a lager but yet refreshing.

Lager Glass-Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of hops, orange, and malt. Taste of the same with a bit more hops, sweetness fills the mouth with citrus on the back end. This medium bodied brew is very enjoyable

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear Yellow Color Huge Foamy Head That Last and Leaves Lots Of Lacing. Faint Pine Hop Aroma. Lightly Buttery, Malt, Light Citrus and Light Hop Finish. Could be bolder but then again it is pale ale, so what did you expect. No matter what hardcore beer aficionados say, this one is miles away from macros, especially, knowing that it came from Stevens Point WI. Overall quite decent, refreshing and drinkable. Worth at least a try to see it for yourself. OK..

Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light amber bre with white head. Aroma of moderate malts and light hops. Taste is light sweet malts with a dry finish. Hops are very restrained. Weak. WHile I like lagers, the lagerishness of this one diminishes it. Yeah.

Bottle shared with my father-in-law (thanks JoePeesie!). Pours a pale canary yellow with minimal white head. Aroma is mild of burnt caramel with a touch of pine. Better balance in the flavor with more hops presence. Slight cooked vegetable presence in the finish. Soft carbonation. Light overall and not bad.

Refrigerated bottle from JoePessie, poured into a shaker. Pours hazy light orange with medium white head that dissapates fairly quickly. Good small bubble lacing, medium/thin body, light/medium carbonation, and nice citrus aroma. Tastes is citrus malt, estery bread, and finishes crisp hops. Refreshing.

Draft. Poured a clear pale color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind as a local bar session beer.
