I had a sixer of Moon Man maybe two weeks ago now. I liked it OK, but wasn't exactly head-over-heels for it. I found it to be rather undercarbonated (could have just been that batch) and nothing too spectacular in the over all profile. Pretty straight forward. Extremely quaffable, though. It'll probably end up being a really good staple for them alongside Spotted Cow.

Just popped one open....Daddy like.

This is the sort of thing I was looking for in my pale ale, but I messed it up. The dryness was there but I over dry hopped and it got a bit grassy. Called it an IPA instead, and my brain handles it better.

Don't mean to derail the thread too much, but I think you mean Central Waters Brewing's Glacial Trail IPA. That's a wonderful beer! If you haven't yet, try their Bourbon Barrel Barleywine. It's phenomenal!! I reviewed it for a local blog here

As for the New Glarus beer. I'm not an enormous fan of their beers, but I'm willing to give it a try given the raves it's getting here!
