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.

Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops is quite amazing with light sweet cereal notes also detectable. Taste is a superb mix between some floral hops notes mix in with some notes of light cereal. Mix of citrus and floral hoppy notes is just about perfect. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really liked this beer and I guess the East coast breweries are not catching up on West coast brewery about adding hops into beer being more then just about bitterness.

Mild, easy drinking hoppy beer. A nice citrus taste. Fomay looking head, lacey.Could not finish the entire bottle with John, but I kept the rest for cooking. More aroma would help.

Bottle. Pineapple, citrus, floral hops aroma. Clear golden yellow with a large white head. Light malt, citrus, grapefruit peel, floral hops flavor. Light to medium body. Very nice fresh clean hops flavor, well balanced with malt. When I’m in the mood for a hoppy beer, this is what I’m after.

TATE (361) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAY 14, 2012
On draft at Nosh. Cloudy and yellow with a white head. Aroma is of citrus. Taste is dry and smooth with a nice bitterness at the end with citrus notes. The style is listed by Ratebeer as an American Pale Ale but seemed to me to be a wheat beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Nice looking bottle from a trade on BA. Very clean looking light orange pour, zesty head and carbonation leaving decent lacing. Nose is bright and dry all at once, with papery malts stitching together leafy and fruity aromas. Playful, moderately spicy mouthfeel. Solid as hell APA, with backbone and a hoppy elegance that is very dry and rustic.
