COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American-style ale brewed one barrel at a time. The malt bill is built on American two-row malt and accented by crystal 10, Vienna, and white wheat malts. Magnum hops give the beer a nice clean bittering and Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hop varieties provide a pleasant floral and citrusy hop flavor. A healthy dose of additional Amarillo and Centennial are dry hopped to give this beer an inviting hop aroma. The beer is fermented with a neutral yeast strain and allowed to dry out so it finishes crisp and clean.

Note: Formerly known as Spring Peeper.

Crisp citrus hop aroma with a soft creamy note. Straw colored body with an amber tinge. A quarter inch pillow head that lingers a long time. Citrus hop bitter taste. Has a creamy quality that balances the bitter hop presence.

tmoreau (2688) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2015
On tap at Ellyn’s in Glen Ellyn, IL., and dispensed to a tulip showing a clear & shimmering, golden hue, and fluffy, white foam that lowered it’s head just a bit to a frothy layer, with clingy, curtainy rings of lacing. The nose was perfumey & expressive esters as grapefruit, light tropical scent, pineapple, and lemon. The taste was fresh, juicy & citrusy, with just the right mellowing touch of malt & sweetness. Medium bodied, with lively carbonation, the hop bitterness was dry & lingering, with citrus rind, and a bit of earthiness. Finished clean & crisp. Would gladly choose over many IPAs for bold hop character with a quaffable nature.

Mainuh_man (253) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2014
22 Oz bottle. Clear pale with a rocky white head. Aroma has noteworthy grapefruit, pineapple and floral hops. Flavor is citrus and pineapple hop forward with only mild sweetness. Quickly transitions to herby and citrusy hops bitterness, lingering for quite some time and leaving a numb feeling on the tongue. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Overall, not complex nor well-balanced, but does the hops it uses well.

Bottle with Butler. Thanks Chris! Pours a hazy light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is peppery lemons and spice. Nice citrus. Slight maltiness. Flavor is somewhat flat. Some bitterness. Really refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PapaSkeetSkeet (959) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Consumed 4 months after the date listed on the bottle, sadly. Hazy yellow with an inch of off-white frothy head that fades at a moderate rate. Aroma is (far away) evergreen, grapefruit, lemon, (up close) sweet grain, pineapple, slight candy strawberry. Body is watery, medium-light, semi-creamy carbonation, moderate burn. Flavor is grass, grain, hay, some herbs, forest. A small, electric bitterness arcs across the end of the flavor profile, just a hint of astringency. A nice session. Light feel and flavor is consistent with this intent. Surprised the aroma holds as well as it does after 4 months.

Cloudily gold with an exceptional bright white head that leaves an exquisite lattice. Piney citrus scent and flavor finely balanced. Light body with a cleansing freshness that restrains the bitterness.

Pours hazy light orange, peppery bite, nice hops. Full flavor of hops with no lingering aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Light golden pour w/ a white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is quite floral & full of hops. The taste is smooth but has a substantial amount of bitterness. This beer is highly drinkable & rather flavorful. Well done!

500ml bottle from Beer Culture, New York

Bottled 4th November 2014 - Pours hazy yellowish orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, floral hops, grass and herbal notes. Taste is hoppy, grassy and citrusy with some pine, floral hops and herbal notes. Finish is crisp, fruity and hoppy with some floral and herbal notes. Excellent drinkability and very clean APA. Nice one.

Tap pour with fluffy white head. Initial taste mild citrus, mostly grapefruit. Slight hop bite at end, but not bitter. OK drinking beer... Not drinking with food. Might be a good beer to match with fresh water fish & chicken.
