I just had my first 6-pack, and wow, is it delicious! The website says that it is brewed with 5 different hops, 3 of which are not commonly used in American pale ales. Has anyone tried this beer and found it as delicious as I do? Does anyone know what kind of hops are used?

I just tried it about 1/2 hour ago! I get a floral/earthy in there, along with the citrusy, so I suspect some willamette and/or fuggles. I just bought a sixer this afternoon, and I'm saving the rest for this weekend!

Awesome. Haven't tried this one yet but have been pretty excited since they've announced it as a new year round brew.

I don't know the hops in Moon Man but I was suprised to see that their IPA uses cascade and east kent golding which is a bit different since golding is british obviously. They claim "no coast" so I'm assuming this means they are just using whatever blend they feel like. West coast, American, English, whatever.

I've had two six packs of this, and I have to say, I really like it. I'm not a hoppy / IPA type of beer guy, but this is really tasty. I'll drink this again and again.

I actually live in New Glarus. I go to the brewery from time to time to have a drink. All I can say best of luck on cloning any of their recipes. You will likely be on your own. They make really good beers, but they are typically pretty tight-lipped about the recipes beyond what they put on the labels. I can't say that I blame them. They are a pretty small privately owned company, and they just spent a bunch of money to build a new brewery.

Hmmm...it's a bummer that they aren't willing to share their recipes, but I don't blame them either.

As for their IPA, bh10, I'm a huge fan too! You can still find bottles in sampler packs if you're lucky. But definitely try their Moon Man when you come by.

I saw a 6 pack of their IPA at the grocery store a week or two ago. It's still around, but not sure how old it was.

Man this thread is making me thirsty. I just did a swap and got like 7 New Glarus beers in the fridge right now. Gonna drink some of the darker stuff today, but the next warm day we see I'll be cracking Moon Man and Cracked Wheat.
