4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance is crystal clear golden with whit foam cap. Great pine and citrus aroma. Taste is sweet, bready malt with definitive pine and citrus flavors from the hops, with a clean, crisp bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium for the style. Finishes with a crisp bitterness an leaves a pleasant citrus flavor on the tongue, begging you to come back for another drink.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased a six pack of this at a local gas station. Poured into a pint glass. This pours a golden hue with a moderate head and a bit of lacing. The scent of this beer reminds me of citrus and pine. Taste wise this beer is phenomenal. Hints of grapefruit and pine are noticeable with just a bit of hop bitterness. This beer goes down extremely well too. Yet another winner from New Glarus.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/22/2015. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Great dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Awesome appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon/orange peel, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness that increases through the glass. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and light-moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2016 Bottle. Pours a hazy gold. Great hop character on the nose with citrus and pine. Flavor is the same. A little thin but nothing concerning. Very good brew.

Copper pour with nice sized white head. Nose is citrus hops. Flavor much the same, drinks like a session IPA but actually has some body to it.

Bottle. It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was of hops, citrus and some pine. The taste was similar to the aroma with more hops, citrus, pine and some bitterness. Good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
DATE TASTED: December 4, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: a drinker renewed after experiencing The Growing Stage’s Christmas Carol... APPEARANCE: incredibly sparkling, bubbly like champagne; color is slightly darker than gold--really suggestive of a lager? the head is soft white, pillowed and soapy in its lacing; ....AROMA: bright citrus hits with melon, grapefruit, and mango... other flowery elements like lilac and chamomile--I am guessing Cascade, Citra, and Centennial, at least...the malts are not as pronounced... PALATE: creamy head introduces a medium-bodied , smooth ale that finishes swiftly and with little lingering aftertaste; ... TASTE: first, the five hops must include Summit and Simcoe, as the spiciness and muskiness meshes with pepper, onion and garlic...the malts provide some sweetness, and this is a balanced ale--but the flavor profile is decidedly hoppy... OVERALL: FINALLY--another New Glarus! This last gift is from Jeff, and much like Jarrett’s, it’s another reminder of how good localized beer can be.... highly drinkable, and at 5%, a sessionable ale in both taste and weight....

Pours clear golden w a white head.
Nose. Light Hops and light spicy yeast.. A little less fruity/hoppy than an average pale ale I think but clearly within the borders. Medium mouthfeel good full taste and slightly bitter finish.

New Glarus never seems to disappoint. This beer has a good base flavor and great aromas. Seems like a solid pale ale. Would probably be a go to if New Glarus actually distributed.
