  • From the bottle: "A wet hop ale made with Wisconsin hops and barley."

    My snifter was lonely so I made use with this beer. Nice clear pour with a single finger of white foam. Retention was average while lacing was minimal since the foam became almost non-existent.

    Aroma had a floral and citrus hops at the time of the original pour. Like all beers, I continue to waft throughout the time I drink. That aroma didn't last. Pale malt, earthy, and grassy scents quickly became the central point. Too bad the floral and citrus hops wasn't stronger and didn't last.

    Taste has some sweet but mainly malt and earthy flavors that take over in the middle through the finish. There is a hint of floral and citrus hops in the middle. After taste has a slight bitterness. Hops play an even smaller roll here.

    Medium body and carbonation. Both seem to be fitting for the beer.

    Easy to drink beer that, based on the name, is a let down from the hop standpoint. Still a good beer just not a hop enigma that most have come to expect from an APA. If you are looking for a crisp, refreshing seasonal APA, this is spot on. Pass if you want and APA that is almost an IPA. Enjoy!
