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.

BuckeyeBoy (5638) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2011
12oz Bottle thanks to Sam. Pours out golden in color topped with a white head. Aroma was of citrus and pine hops along with a light sweet malt. Taste was more of the hop mix along with a little caramel sweetness and some light bread malts.

"Had two of these yesterday, super impressed with the taste. Really love the last two brews NG put out. Is it just a matter of time before they let me down...? i highly doubt it...These guys are on a roll. Cloudy orange, fresh hops and grass on the nose. Taste is citrusy, well done grapefruit and pine throughout. Really straightfoward, not overdone, just perfect in every sense. I will be sure to pick some more up in the near future."

MrPickles (438) - Waunakee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2011
Aroma floral hops, with a note of fruit in the back. Itís very light colored and a good take on an IPA. Hops donít linger all day, but it is not an all malt finish either.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
Clear yellow gold with a white head. Combination of bright fruits, intense floral, and something like caramel or nugget. Does all fit together right for me.

Pours deep yellow with a white head. Aroma of floral and orange hops with some caramel malt. Taste is pretty much the same. Nicely balanced. Good pale.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear, yellow-orange color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, floral. Light body on the palate with nice carbonation. Flavor is a nice balance of bready malt and grassy hops. A very clean, crisp, drinkable pale ale. Very nice.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
The beer pours a clear medium gold with a light white head, good lacing ok retention. The aroma is on the lighter side and a little simple. It has some nice hops but thatís it. The tatse is awesome, really surprissed with all the hops in here. It starts off a little sweet then a tons of fresh easy to drink hosp. Reminds me a lot of daisy cutter. Nice, feel easy to drink. This beer is great, easily one of my favorite NGís. A super tasty and easy to drink pale ale.

joeneugs (5486) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is mostly dried apricots with some bready notes. The flavor is well balanced with a nice hop profile. Some tropical fruit, apricots, grapefruit and a hint of bready malts. It finishes dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Bottle in Minneapolis. Light pale, golden yellow appearance with a fairly small white head. Slightly grapefruity, slightly citrusy hoppy nose thatís done well but not overly hoppy for an APA. Light citrusy, grapefruity hoppy carbonated Pale Ale. Good pale malty flavor. Very easy drinking while still having lots of hop character. Great APA.
