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.

Pours light cloudy lemon with a nice white on top. The aroma is sweet and very citrusy fruity juicy. The flavor is a medium syrupy sweet with tons of lemon and orange citrus flavors. Definitely more on the lemon than beer side of a shandy, but pleasant on a hot sunny day down the shore.

Bottle: pours a yellow with a little bit of orange color. It has a sweet aroma of lemons. The flavors are much in line with the aroma... Lemons, lemonade, lemony. It lingers well after you finish... Not my favorite, but it falls in line with a shandy.

superspak (2540) - Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2011
22 ounce bottle, bottled in May, picked it up at the brewery. Pours slightly hazy bright golden amber color with a small foamy white head that reduces to nothing pretty quickly. A good amount of carbonation nucleation from the bottom of the glass as well. Huge aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, lime, and a bit of yeast breadiness. Interesting aromas to say the least, smells like fresca or something. Taste of huge lemon, lime, orange zest, and a bit of spiciness. Some tartness from the lemon and lime on the finish, with lingering citrus notes for a brief period of time. No bitterness noticed at all. Medium body and medium carbonation. No alcohol noticed other than a slight warming after the finish. Very easy to drink for 7% ABV. Overall, this is actually pretty damn good. I don’t think I have actually had a shandy before, but this is tasty stuff!

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Bottle at brady’s in Trevose. Light golden color. Aroma is lemon zest/orange. Taste is lemonade, very sweet, with a hint of a grainy malt backbone and tiny bitter finish. It’s light and refreshing, a really nice warm weather beer. Not amazing but kind of nice.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Pours a light golden with thin white head. Smells like a lemon/lime gatorade to me. Taste of lemon/lime and citrus. Not terribly sweet in the finish actually. Very refreshing, probably couldn’t drink too much of this though.

Gription79 (2246) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Poured straw with no head. Nose was dominated by citrus/lemon lime. It also had a grain sweetness to the smell, as well as mead like honey notes. Taste was lemon with pilsner malts. Refreshing, effervescent, a really interesting great summer beer.

thewolf (11149) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2011
Bottle, bought @ HJ Hansen, Odense.
Pours clear yellow-golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, citrus and lime. Highish carbonation, light mouthfeel. Flavour is sharp, somewhat dry, sugary citrus. Rather dry in the finish and really not very good.

Pours hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is lemon lime soda. Flavor is dominated by the lemonade. Light grainy notes toward the finish.

jredmond (5295) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2012 Bottle split with Pat and Vin. Pours a bright hazy orange body with some minor white lacing. Aroma is fresh capri-sun, juicy sweet lemonade. Mouthfeel is juicy and refreshing - essentially closer to juice rather than beer - with notes of Slimer Ecto Plasma Hi-C.

22 oz bomber. Pours a cloudy gray yellow orange with a very tiny quick fading white head. Aroma of a lemony orange fruit concentrate and orange gum. Taste of lemony orange fruit soda. Hard to believe this is classified as beer.
