Bottle. Pours a golden body with a white head and okay head retention. Light grass and vine y tones. Nobel hop tones. Light grain and bittering hops. Not a ton of flavor but very nice overall.

Thanks to HogTownHarry. Appearance: Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma: Distinctly hoppy with a little over ripe lemon and malt. Flavour: Quite fruity with a decent amount of hops, mildly spicy, very refreshing. Not bad.

12oz bottle courtesy of JCapriotti shared with blankboy and garthicus. Slightly hazy gold, average diminishing white head. Solid floral/citrus aroma, light grain, slightly sweet - pretty much no alcohol. Slightly lemony, but solidly bitter - a bit leafy, hint of lemon zest, detectable alcohol ... nice balance, not sweet at all. Average body, decent carbonation, a reasonably long finish, bitter but not aggressively so. Pretty solid, would drink this a lot if it were a local - fantastic session beer

This is my mother-in-law’s favorite beer. She doesn’t even drink craft beers that often. To go from Coors Light to Moon Man, it must be good.

12oz freshly, traded bottle. Pours a clear golden-straw color with active carbonation and a medium, foamy head. Sticky looking lacing. Aroma is sweet hops and fresh pineapple. Light, refreshing hop flavor with a sweet malt backbone. Really cool session ale.

Light golden pour with an eggwhite head. Aroma is fruity hops-grapefruit. Nice malt and hops balance. Vert tasty. Nice hop aftertaste-not dominant-but pleasantly there!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Citrus (orange, grapefruit, tangerine), pine and to a lesser extent, resiny hops in the nose along with a bit of honey. Light gold color with a one fingered white head and lots of visible carbonation. Brilliant clarity. Resiny, piney flavor with lingering grapefruit, light cracker and balanced bitterness. A very nice pale ale, approachable, but with a lot of hops aroma and flavor. Thanks Tim.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a somewhat hazy light copper with minimal, quickly diminishing head. Not a ton of lacing. Nose is grapefruit hops backed with sweet malt. Other citrus smells in there as well...perhaps lemon, etc. Bitterness builds a bit with each sip, not to incredible levels though. Lots of sweet malt, though the finish is fairly dry while staying creamy. Overall, a decent pale ale, though the lack of outstanding features places this one off of the memorable list.
