COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The release of our Turbo Shandy Citrus Ale is around mid June. Born from European tradition, our Shandy is a refreshing combination of lemon and light malt flavors. Unlike traditional shandys, Turbo Shandy, revs it up a couple of notches with a high test, full flavored approach as only Hoppin’ Frog can do.

Bottle @ Derek’s. Thanks for sharing! Hazy gold pour with a small head. Loads of orange peel on the nose. Some cake batter. Citrus soda. Similar flavor. Light citrus. Sweet grain. Spritzy body. Fairly inconsequential. Nice enough.

superspak (4583) - Michigan, USA - DEC 4, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, summer 2015 bottling. Pours lightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a ring of lace that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemonade, lemon peel, lime, grapefruit, wheat, cracker, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance of lemon/citrus, bready malt, and light earthy hop/yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemonade, lemon peel, lime, grapefruit, wheat, cracker, light honey, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness, yeast spiciness, and citrus tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemonade, lemon peel, wheat, cracker, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and balance of lemon/citrus, bready malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; with great malt/spice/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent shandy style! All around great robustness and balance of lemon/citrus, bready malt, and light earthy hop/yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle shared by John, thanks! Pours a hazy deep yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates quickly and nearly completely. Aroma has a lots of lemon, both sweet and tart, with a strong sweet wheat backbone. Flavor has a combination of sweet wheat and sweet lemon with a slight bitterness underlying.
