A:Yellow gold, slightly darker than pale. Definately clear, but a slight of blue hue. Soft white, small bubble foam quickly disapates.
S: It's a walk through a citrus orchard, orange and lemon. The maltiness is very subtle, only sweet in a seductive way. If there's a breadiness it's a fresh bagette. I think the hops are subdued, hardly tropical and only faintly pine. Lastly, if you focus you can find the alocohol in an orange liquor manner.
T: Low level sweetness mimiced slightly sour tree fruit. But very quickly it was overrun by a mild grapefruit rush, then a slight drying, and finally an unsweetened fruit bitter bite. Medium to high mouthfeel, but not sticky. I think it tastes entirely different than last night.
O: This brew is a shot over the bow at RR, not at Stone or Port. First, kudos to Dan for hitting the mark, but did anyone think otherwise. I thought how's he gonna compete with HopCrack and WC style, but he went Nor Cal and grabbed my attention. I've got to try another couple to place it the crowd field of kick-ass DIPAs, but it's not if its in the running, just how high is it gonna place. NG is just another piece of evidence as to why WI is one of the more idiosynctricly interesting geography in the US. Thank god I am lucky enough to live this close to the Dairyland and New Glarus.
