3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 Golden pour. If you drink it with food it will taste different than by itself, which, in my opinion thatís the best way to have it. On its own thereís a mild hoppiness with a fresh grassiness. Very, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super APA. Heavy citrus, some pine in nose, not a lot of malt qualities in nose. But plenty in the palate, dough, biscuits, + citrus + pine, really nice balance, tasty. Dry finish.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Poured from bottle, pours a clear golden color with white fluffy head, actually has more hop aroma to it than I was expecting, has a nice fruity and hoppy flavor to it, very crisp and clean, very nice offering from New Glarus.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured a clear light gold color. The head was thick, fluffy, and white with good retention and lacing. I smelled citrusy hop, pale malt, and a hint of pine. Light to medium bodied and delicately sweet up front. Minimal bitterness emerged at the end. Citrus and pine hop flavors served on a bed of pale malt. There was also a hint of pineapple.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A-pours a transparent pale golden color with a creamy white head that leaves a solid lacing.
S-big hops in the nose, crystal and pale malts lay a subtle foundation, hint of caramel, resignous piney hops take over, a fair amount of citrus as well.
T-the taste follows the nose, crystal and pale malts, a fair bit of citrus and pine, a little soapy in the back with a light bitterness in the finish. slightly watery but still pretty full flavors.
M-smooth, medium to full body, creamy, a little syrupy on the palate, moderate to light carbonation, not quite enough to balance.
D-this is a very tasty pale ale, it has a good hop presence with enough malt to balance, very good feel, just lacking a little bit of carbonation. nice balance with the bitterness, light but still present. very good!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced just a bit. Aroma was a bit malty with cereal and bread notes, but there was a pleasant balancing light pine hop and just a hint of citrus. Flavor began with light pine with a slight hint of citrus but they both mellow and the finish showcases the bread and cereal notes more.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of malt, fruit and hops. On tap @ New Glarus with a nice lace with maintanence. Taste of malt with fairly moderate to strong hop backbone. Overall a nice brew but too hoppy for my taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful golden color with a large white foamy head. Nose is all hops with a hint of spices. Creamy on the palate, this pale ale is all about the hops (5 different types) with just a touch of exotic spices. An excellent session beer that accompanies rye crackers with cucumber dill spread extremely well.
