Pours deep yellow with a white head. Aroma of floral and orange hops with some caramel malt. Taste is pretty much the same. Nicely balanced. Good pale. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - APR 9, 2011
(12oz bottle) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, florals, orange, and perfume. Flavor of grass, tea, floral, caramel malt, light pine, and orange. sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, yellow-orange color with a white head and some lacing. Aroma is hoppy, grassy, floral. Light body on the palate with nice carbonation. Flavor is a nice balance of bready malt and grassy hops. A very clean, crisp, drinkable pale ale. Very nice. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2011
The beer pours a clear medium gold with a light white head, good lacing ok retention.
The aroma is on the lighter side and a little simple. It has some nice hops but that’s it.
The tatse is awesome, really surprissed with all the hops in here. It starts off a little sweet then a tons of fresh easy to drink hosp. Reminds me a lot of daisy cutter.
Nice, feel easy to drink.
This beer is great, easily one of my favorite NG’s. A super tasty and easy to drink pale ale. joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 26, 2011
Pours golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is mostly dried apricots with some bready notes. The flavor is well balanced with a nice hop profile. Some tropical fruit, apricots, grapefruit and a hint of bready malts. It finishes dry and hoppy.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Bottle in Minneapolis. Light pale, golden yellow appearance with a fairly small white head. Slightly grapefruity, slightly citrusy hoppy nose that’s done well but not overly hoppy for an APA. Light citrusy, grapefruity hoppy carbonated Pale Ale. Good pale malty flavor. Very easy drinking while still having lots of hop character. Great APA. Strykzone (7430) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Sampled at The Stable’s Beer Lover’s Anonymous. Bottom of the bottle was cloudy but tom of it was clear. I got the bottom in my pour. A soapy white head. A soft earthy start with very soft hops and just as soft citrus fruit. There are bitter tart citrus with some spice. This beer is sweet and just doesn’t have a lot going on. The finish was nice, though. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Pours a nice light color, with a refreshing scent to the nose. Goes down nice and smooth with a pleasant after taste. beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Pours a crisp clear orange with about a finger of a white, frothy head, slowly dissipating. Lots of great floral hops in the nose. A lighter hop taste than I would expect, but surprisingly deep and balanced. Some light citrus starts out, as it builds into a nice sweetness that fades into hop bitterness. I like this a lot better then the last 2 I tried from New Glarus. This and Fat Squirel so far are the 2 I liked best out of the 5 I have tried. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2011
12 oz bottle.
It pours a hazy gold with a big foamy white head.
It has a really fresh hop character in the scent. It is lightly grassy with a bit of tropical fruit and pine. Pale malts are underneath.
It is light tasting, too light, very grainy as per the style, the hops are a bit more interesting here than most but overall just very bland typical APA. It ain’t no Pride and Joy.
Overall it is a bit of an oddity but for the most part it is typical low-flavor APA.
