This great American Pale Ale is hand-crafted with a natural blend of the finest barley malt, Munich, Carapils and Crystal specialty malts, Cascade and Williamette hops and pure water. The taste is clean and complex, with a fruit accent and a dry, hoppy finish.

We had this beer at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in Biloxi, MS. "Oh! Too buggy." We did not like this one. Might as well spray bug spray in your mouth.

Mediocre beer from a mediocre brewery. Nothing particularly bad about this beer. It has a middle-of-the-road quality to its malt presence and grassy hops. Nothing exceptional either. Would probably be a good session beer, but there are better ones...

a below average pale ale, but it is drinkable. nothing worth seeking out, but if your in the north-woods and hit a gas station that for some reason doesn’t carry anything by New Glarus, pick it up. Not awful.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours copper in colour, pretty good white head. Nicely balanced caramel malt and resiny hops. Good PA.

Poured into an english pint glass. Appearance is a hazy copper with a frothy, creme head of foam that dissipates at a normal rate and leaves thick lacing. Aroma is like a musty grapefruit that has been rubbed with hops. The smell isn’t overbearing, just pleasantly present. Taste is less than stellar, faint hop presence with a grapefruit peel taste in the forefront that fades to a yeasty backbone. Earthy with a touch of fruitiness. I would say this one is okay at best.

Draft @ Bottom Lounge, Chicago, IL. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty and slightly hoppy aroma. Fruity malty hoppy aroma with hints of citrus. Has a fruity malty hoppy finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Pours a beautiful dark gold color with a huge white head with lots of effervesence. Nose is hops with a hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Taste is hoppy, but not overly so, and not bitter. A very nice pale ale. Goes well with deli sandwiches and chips.

On tap at Subterranean in Chicago. Pours a deep amber color with a smallish but lingering off white froth. Aroma is crisp, clean, some citric characters, not overly strong hoppiness, but still some floral and sweet malt notes giving balance. Flavor is again crisp and clean, a bit more bitter than I expected, some cereal grain breadiness, but the hops stay present throughout. Again, a citric character brings a bit of tartness. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. They changed the keg right before my pour so it was pretty fresh, not bad. Point has become a good cheap go to beer while out doing something where I don’t want to think too much about my beer but I also don’t want to cringe with each sip.
