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.

"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."

Pours clear and golden with a medium white head. Head is fairly persistent with some lacing. Aroma is citrus heavy with hints of candy and bubblegum. Taste is tart, but not overwhelmingly so, from the start, before a light malt backbone kicks in. I'd call it a slightly less complex All Day IPA. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the a Tipsy Cow. Poured with little head. Nice fresh citrus smell. Light refreshing taste. Some flavors of mango and pineapple. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours clear brass color. Very thin head with no lacing. Mild floral and grapefruit nose. Same in the taste. Good lawnmower beer.

Cloudy yellow-orange, light white head. Grapefruit, citrusy-sweetness, little bit of honey. Bitter, some sweetness. Lighter body, medium carbonation, slight oiliness. Longer, dry bitter finish. Very nicely balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The color is a clear aamber color with a medium white head, and the aroma blends resin and floral hops with a light and sweet malt backbone. The taste is quite bitter, mildly sweet, and slightly sour, but the flavor doesn’t linger on the tongue; the palate fuses a medium body, slightly sticky texture, average carbonation, and a slightly bitter finish.

bottle- poured clear straw color with thin white head. Aroma is kinda funky, reminds me of a barnyard. Pretty decent looking brew with ok head. Taste is actually really good. Very nice syrupy malt and a lot of hop varieties going on. Overall a good but not great APA. Aroma is slight drawback!

12 oz bottle. Pours light gold with thick white head. Nice hops smell, and very smooth. Definitely a good drinker.

Naka (698) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2014
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 it’s old.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
