This is American pale ale done right, with a balanced profile of malty richness and hoppy astringency. Although New Glarus uses a blend of five different hops, it is by no means over the top or overly bitter, with bright hop-driven aromas of grapefruit and fresh-cut grass followed by flavors of orange oil and herbs on the palate. Medium bodied yet dry, with a slightly nutty character lingering on the finish. The playful “No Coast” name suggests this is a selection to be enjoyed by west-coasters, east-coasters and everyone in-between.
