Classic APA. Not too dry, nice finish and a pale ale citrus/hoppy flavor better than any I have ever had.

Pours to a thick creamy, rocky, bubbly white head atop a hugely bubbly straw body. Excellent lacing. The aroma smells exactly like homemade strawberry fruit rollups (my mom has a dehydrator). I suppose it’s really sweet grains and some kinda spicy hops (amarillo?). The aroma is VERY bright and crisp and strong. It also smells very good. The flavor is also like homemade strawberry fruit rollups. Very sweet with tons of concentrated fruits, sweet malts, fresh and crisp, pine. This is VERY good. I’m am startled by this beer. The palate is crisp, clean, medium mouthfeel. Holy crap! This is an APA?

Pours a beautiful golden hue crowned by a huge white head with lots of effervesence. Nose is malt, hops and a trace of citrus. Creamy on the palate, this is a good tasting pale ale, not too bitter, with a nice hoppy finish. Happy Heron pairs well with cheeses, deli sandwiches and snackables.

A very drinkable pale ale with lots of taste. A pleasant citrus/fruity after taste. Comes highly recommended from a discerning drinker

12 oz bottle. Average color and aroma but very good taste. Would definitely have again

This brewery is quickly becoming one of my favorite "locals". Lightly hazed amber color with a rocky thick cream colored head. Crisp malt and light PNW hops profile. Light and somewhat spritzy body. Inital malt sweetness quickly snaped away by a hops bite. Light caramel malt flavors fight it out with pine needles jabbing the tongue. Nicely balanced. Initial hops finish, taken back by a mild malt linger. This rivals may out there in the APA department.

Although this beer is not very well known in Wisconsin, it is one of my favorites. The hops flavor is pronounced like a real pale ale should be.
