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.

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - SEP 30, 2010
On tap at their oktoberfest celebration at the brewery. ..Aroma is very hoppy and notes of pineapple. The appearance is clear, light color, and a dash of amber app. There is no malt, but heavy hop presnsence. Aftertaste is crisp, clean, and refreshing. Touch of pineapple on the palate. Resembles an IPA in all respects. Great name for the brew.

Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma is dominated by resiny hops. Flat dry malt flavor with a hint of bitter. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Just not what I hoped for.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Bottle. Translucent straw-orange body, medium tight off-white head. Soapy, grassy hops nose with citrus notes. Nice spicy hops body, floral and piny, with biscuity malts and a biting, bitter finish. Clean and assertive, a tasty session pale ale.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2010 On draught at Bodega Brew Pub in La Crosse. This brew is a clear orange color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates to a film steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Mild hops and sweet malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and malt. The finish is hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. Decent APA overall.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2010
12oz bottle picked up at the Historic Casanova Liquors in Hudson, WI on my way back from Minneapolis. Pours a crystal clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, fizzy and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is fresh citrus rinds with some zesty grass, resins, tropical fruits, and florals that all blend nicely with a sweeter pale malt backing and a touch of caramel and honey. Flavor doesn’t give off that same feel, but is still fresh and zesty. Hoppy with a mix of grass and florals. Some citrus, more distinct grapefruit, a bit of lemon, and a hint of tropical fruit. Malts are nice with a light, pale sweetness and a touch of caramel. Finishes mostly dry with some juicy citrus, light resins, grass, and a light floral malt sweetness that gives of a medium-light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light, smooth body and soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a nicely done pale ale. Well balanced with a good amount of hops and a pleasant, light malt sweetness. Really quaffable, fresh, and tasty.

Smells of piney floral hops, with a note of peach in the back. It’s very light colored and a good take on an IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 Notes from June 06, 2010 12 oz. bottle from Woodman’s Madison, 6-pack for $6.99. Ar: I couldn’t ask for more in an APA. Huge fruity floral nose with tropical fruit (guava) notes. Ap: Pours a pale copper/straw with a modest 3/4" head that recedes rather quickly. Leaves a fair amount of lace. T: Nice fruity nose on this with a little bit of piney/floral hops on the finish. P: A bit thin, but not necessarily a bad thing in an APA like this. This is a wonderful session beer, and a great change of pace from West Coast pales. Rerate. Yeah, it’s still freakin’ delicious.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2010
[Bottle] Pours a golden amber color with a slight haze to it. Dense white head and good looking lacing. A solid hoppy nose includes lots of citrus and some other fresh fruits. Moderate hop bitterness throughout in the taste. Also some biscuit and juniper. Great mouthfeel and palate. A well made and very drinkable brew.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Tasted from bottle purchased at Discount Liquors. Pours clear light orange with a thick white head that displays excellent retention. The nose is a great blend of caramelized bread malt, orange peel hops bitterness, and just a hint of yeastiness as well. The flavor is dominated by orange. Everything from orange peel to fresh orange juice comes through beautifully. There is also the addition of caramelized malt and some good bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is light with lively carbonation and a light but long bitter orange finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a bright gold with a decent head. Aroma is insane amounts of marigold flowers, earthy, spicy, floral, cardamon, fruity hops, with citrus and grapefruit zest- weedy dandelion and oily resin in a light crackery malt backbone. Flavor is more marigold flowers, spices, phenolic, floral hops, tea, citrus, orange, weedy, waxy and lotus flower. Clean finish and pretty decent overall- just very strange and unique.
