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.

Found at Total Wine in Charleston. Super Bowl brew. Sadly was a bit stale- check the dates Total Wine!- but can see the potential. Pretty light pour for a "pale"- light orange, white head. Hazy. Tons of citrus- dominant flavor. Notes of pine, floral and earth. Super crisp and dry in the finish. Not as much maltiness as I would expect from a pale. More hoppy/ bitter-slightly astrigent, even- and less sweet. Decent stuff. Well balanced. Would love to try on tap and super fresh.

Light haze to a golden pour. Aroma is sweet malt and citrus. Taste is citrus and pepper. Not bad, but not something I would search for.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2015
[Tap] Pours a golden color with a slight haze to it. Soapy head with nice lacing. Nose of spicy hops, lemongrass and pine needles. A crisp hoppiness is featured in the flavor. Citrus, spruce, floral hops, grass and peppercorns also come through. Nice balance. Dry finish is refreshing. Not cheap though!

Poured a slightly hazy gold with minimal head which dissipated quickly......aroma of sweet malts, citrusy fruit......taste is clean, crisp, citrusy, slight bittering but enough bite. Quite enjoyable.

Foxbush (1466) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Draft at Capital Ale House This APA poured a clear amber with a white head and very light lacing. The aroma was of pine and some lemon. This is mild pale ale but well balanced. It is an easy drinking pale ale for anytime. The light body ale had average carbonation. The finish was smooth with mild pine bitterness in the last swallow.
