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. Donít 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 pours gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of grapefruit, peach, caramel, and florals. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of lemon zest, pine, and an herbal quality that I canít quite put my finger on. All in all, a pretty solid APA.

Rusty (1545) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Pours a light golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, hops, grapefruit. Flavor is grapefruit peel, citrus, hops, malt. Well balanced and easy to drink. Fantastic session beer, now if I only had more than this single bottle.

A great one from New Glarus. A bit of everything in the aroma: citrus, lemon and maybe even a touch of honey. Considering the hops load, the bitterness is much lighter than expected. A long, smooth finish. A terrific pale ale well-suited to Wisconsinís summer.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2011
Botle. A - Golden orange color with a decent sized, foamy, whispy, white head. Decent retention with patchy lace. S - Nice hop aroma with floral and lemony aroma. Touches of grapefruit, general citrus, and a touch of pine as well. Grassy and spiced notes as well. T - Similar to the nose. Starts with a strong lemony hop flavor with some floral and fresh cut grass notes. Hints of grapefruit are there but not prominent. A touch of wheat is present in the back. Slight tart and bitter finish. M - Light body with average carbonation. Crisp, refreshing feel. D - Refreshing taste with plenty of hop flavor for the style. Nice crisp tart and bitter kicks balanced well with a malty taste. Notes: Nice APA with plenty of hop flavor. Lemon, floral and grass flavors are strong. This results in a nice, crisp beer that is great for summer. Well balanced and overall just nice.

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours a lovely, glowing light orange with soapy white head with tons of bubbles and tacky, soapy laving. Aromas of juicy citrus pine, fuel, grapefruit rinds, pineapple, tons of caramel malt. Taste is very hoppy with a pronounced tropical resin profile. Tons of guava, tangerine, sweet and peppery tasting notes. Moon man had a crisp, honey hop bite in the finish. Awesome pale ale.

Bottle poured into snifter. New Glarus continues to wow me with their styles and flavors. I expected a middle of the road attempt at this style but was blown away by the hop presence in the aroma and flavor. The flavor itself is a little dry with earthy hop notes but is very drinkable and enjoyable.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle. This is an excellent pale ale that tastes like a west coast IPA. Nice blend of malts and hops. Strong citrus backbone and nose. Lasting bitter finish. Very easy to drink. This is a perfect beer to drink while batting away these huge frickiní bugs in Northern Minnesota.

weihenweizen (3031) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Refrigerated bottle complements of cbfobes. Pours clear golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Medium carbonation, little lacing, and medium body, and smooth texture. Taste is long grapefruit with light bitterness in the finish. Reminds me of a better version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

jlruthven (604) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Tap at the New Glarus tasting room. Golden orange, small white head. Nose is grapefruity hops, slight orange and a bit of pine. Mouthfeel is a tad watery, but some solid citrus hops bolster it nicely. Not top of the charts, but solid.

vikingguy (1050) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Gold pour, plentiful carbonation and tall foamy white head. Mostly grapefruity hops on the nose. This is a full flavored APA. Plentiful grapefruit/piney hops balanced by some sweet malt and tropical fruit notes. Creamy texture. A fantastic APA.
