COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delicious farmhouse ale is named for our Jack Russell, who struck by a car, bounced back in fine tenacious Jack Russell fashion, and is brewed for those of us who knocked down, have picked up, dusted off and carried on undaunted. Golden, naturally cloudy, bottle conditioned and dry hopped for a perfectly refreshing balance of spicy malts, hops and yeast. Please enjoy our beers in good health, And look both ways when crossing the street!

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Pours cloudy pale orange with a lasting white head, good lacing. Nice mild aroma with light funkiness, grains, and dried fruit. Taste is full of citrus and wheat, a small touch of sourness and balanced yeast. Solid hop bittering. Body is frothy, creamy. Iím always impressed by this brewery. Very solid beer.

750ml bottle. Hazy orange with a foamy white head. Flavors are wet hay, wheat, pepper and lemony tartness with floral and earthy notes. Light to medium body, high carbonation, smooth texture. Finish is really dry, remarkably refreshing.

Awesome to see Jolly Pumpkin arrive in Texas! Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of sour fruit and spice. Taste adds yeast and fruit is more distinctly lemon. Bright and refreshing with a nice sour kick.

djd07 (3371) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with thick frothy white head that lasts leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is strong yeast, funk, leather, honey. Medium mouthfeel with nice light spiced malt, light funk, and lingering dry finish, good.

umich03jm (1855) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Tap at JP. Pours a cloudy light amber color with a small head that fades and leaves some webbing. Aroma is all spices and black pepper and so is the taste. I donít really get this beer. If tastes like itís overly spiced to cover up a flaw or something. Slight hint of sourness in the finish. Never been a fan of this.

Unique taste. But as a personal decision, I found it to be delicious. Taste it cold be ready for the sour taste.

ChiGuy68 (398) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a cloudy golden hue with a frothy white head and streaky lacing. Sweet sour aroma of apples and clove. Sour tasting yet easy going down. Not one of my main styles, yet a nice introduction to JP.

Bottle @ RBBSG, 2014. Thanks omgrich! Hazy yellow colour, white foam. Aroma of citrus with some sour apples. Light sour and watery, some spices. Refreshing but not very complex.
