3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Had two of these yesterday, super impressed with the taste. Really love the last two brews NG put out. Is it just a matter of time before they let me down...? i highly doubt it...These guys are on a roll. Cloudy orange, fresh hops and grass on the nose. Taste is citrusy, well done grapefruit and pine throughout. Really straightfoward, not overdone, just perfect in every sense. I will be sure to pick some more up in the near future."

Sadly, this is old and past its prime. Pours pale golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma is honey and piney hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced. I feel there was probably a more pronounced hop note at one point. Nice malt flavor. Still a nice bitterness in the finish. Good beer even though itís old.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with foamy white head. Lot of lazy. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice crisp bitterness with a small amount of malt sweetness to balance it. Flavors are mostly floral hops with some citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. Very good tasting. Overa a great pale ale.

Thanks HisBoyElroy on the split. Very light hoppy aroma. Followed by a light taste of hops and a lot of lemon. Not bad. Very drinkable.

Pours a slightly hazing golden orange. Floral and citrusy in the nose. Taste a bit of lemony citrus with an intersting tropical fruit note. Nicely balanced and slightly dry. One of my favortites from New Glarus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Pours an amber-tinted yellow color with a slight chill haze throughout, topped off with a small layer of foamy, white bubbles. Aroma of light pine, leafy hops, faint perfume, candied grapefruit, & a hint of white pepper-y spiciness on the back-end. Only a very mild hint of toasted cracker malt sugar. Taste is full of crisp, floral hops with a mid-palate grassy bite. Lightly toasted biscuit & cracker malts provide a good base. Finish of mild perfume & zesty grapefruit peels. Sharp finish, coats the mouth ever so slightly. Very drinkable pale ale.

Bottle from bytemesis pours a clear golden color with two fingers. Fragrant aroma, floral with spruce. Flavor is similar but very light, not much malt to speak of, like the memory of an IPA. I am torn on this one. It has great flavors but the lightness makes it underwhelming.
