COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moon Man is a seriously cool cat. Always comfortable in his own skin, he never tries too hard. So cool we named our "no coast" pale ale after him. 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. Just be.

Bottle. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hops, citrus and some pine. The taste was similar to the aroma with more hops, citrus, pine and some bitterness. Good stuff.

Dacrza (801) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 4, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: a drinker renewed after experiencing The Growing Stage’s Christmas Carol... APPEARANCE: incredibly sparkling, bubbly like champagne; color is slightly darker than gold--really suggestive of a lager? the head is soft white, pillowed and soapy in its lacing; ....AROMA: bright citrus hits with melon, grapefruit, and mango... other flowery elements like lilac and chamomile--I am guessing Cascade, Citra, and Centennial, at least...the malts are not as pronounced... PALATE: creamy head introduces a medium-bodied , smooth ale that finishes swiftly and with little lingering aftertaste; ... TASTE: first, the five hops must include Summit and Simcoe, as the spiciness and muskiness meshes with pepper, onion and garlic...the malts provide some sweetness, and this is a balanced ale--but the flavor profile is decidedly hoppy... OVERALL: FINALLY--another New Glarus! This last gift is from Jeff, and much like Jarrett’s, it’s another reminder of how good localized beer can be.... highly drinkable, and at 5%, a sessionable ale in both taste and weight....

Pours clear golden w a white head. Nose. Light Hops and light spicy yeast.. A little less fruity/hoppy than an average pale ale I think but clearly within the borders. Medium mouthfeel good full taste and slightly bitter finish.

New Glarus never seems to disappoint. This beer has a good base flavor and great aromas. Seems like a solid pale ale. Would probably be a go to if New Glarus actually distributed.

DrunkSanta410 (810) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear golden color with a fast dissipating white head. Aroma is light citrus, faint toast and caramel. Taste is light grass and citrus, a bit of toasted malts, lightly sweet, mild bitterness. Light body, medium carbonated. Average.

EyeAmBaldman (461) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Pours a clear gold from the bottle with a thick off white head that leaves very little lacing in the glass. Aroma is just awful. Smells like garbage or spoiled cabbage. Luckily the taste is not the same. It’s quite bitter on the backend with a quick sweetness as it hits your tongue. The hop bitterness is huge and a there’s a bit of pine in this one too. High carbonation on the tongue. Burns as it flows down the throat.

Have had this brew many times just living over the boarder although not sold here. Very smooth for an IPA not the usual punch average as far as aromas and appearance. Milder taste then most IPS’s but pleasant . Pars well with almost any meal.
