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.

bookman10 (656) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2010 Pretty good IPA. Not nearly as bitter as some. Some nice citrusy notes in the flavor and aroma--grapefruit and orange are there. Pours a nice golden yellow with mid-sized white, frothy head. Very smooth aftertaste/finish. A welcome new addition to the stable of year-round beers from New Glarus, this has become one of my favorites of their beers.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 30, 2010
In the bottle at SOB Spring Formal 2010. Thanks to Phil D. Pours a dark gold with a white head. This has a nice citrus orange/grapefruit aroma, but the flavor is milder and smooth with a very delicious medium hop profile. Quite drinkable.

satan165 (1020) - River Grove, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2010
aroma is fresh nearly soapy pine and sharp lemon/grapefruit. appearance is perfectly polished golden with retaining head and huge legs. flavor is subtle but distinct breadiness surrounded by razor citrus that scrubs then leaves a trail of bitterness and refreshment in its wake. proud to be ’no coast’, this beer is the rallying cry fuel for the midwest!

12 oz bottle courtesy of Todd. Pours a clear golden orange copper with a medium sized white head. Beautiful aroma of pine, citrus, and bitter hops. Taste of bitter hops, citrus and pine. Very nice and mild.

Suttree (5218) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 26, 2010
UPDATED: APR 27, 2010 OK, this was right in my wheelhouse as far beers I like. Crisp and clean, nicely hoppy, not huge on the ABV (I think) so I can drink a bunch of ’em. No off flavors, just a big hop bite and enough caramel to back it up. Solid stuff. Thanks to lithy for this one!

Beer in a trade with adamharbaugh. Pours slightly hazy gold with a white head. Nose is pear, malt, floral hops, prickly citrus, and pine. Flavor is similar with some malt, pine, floral hops, and citrus goodness. Good, mellow, hoppy APA.

badgerben (4490) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2010
Clear gold color with a thin head. Strong, fresh hop aroma. Slightly grassy. Very light orange/citric hop taste. More grassiness. Light bitter grains. A solid, simple Pale Ale.

drpimento (2279) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2010
Very unusual for a pale ale. Unusually clean and very drinkable, almost lager like in some ways. Poured with a nice off white fine foamy head that settles to a light cover and good lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is fresh hop malt and beery. Flavor is like aroma plus some sweetness. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor with a bit of the sweetness holding out as it all tapers off. Session beer for sure.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle. Pour was fairly light golden with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma was of grapefruit, slight peach, and a touch of spice. Flavors were well blended with a lighter balance of citrus hops leading to a bread and slightly toasty malt background. Nicely made brew.

meisterbrauMHB (69) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2010
Pleasant grape fruit aroma. Pours a hazy golden with nice head and lacing. Nice balance of hops and citrus end notes without being overbearing. One of the better APAs I have had.
