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.

Thank you mcox90! Pours a hazy orange with a frothy 1" head. Aroma is prominent floral hops with mild malt undertones. The taste started out a crisp clean hop bitterness with some subtle malt on the end, I detected a slight metallic finish that dropped it a point on mouth feel and taste for me. Overall a good refreshing brew.

Bottle @ home. Somewhat hazy, brownish, golden orange appearance with a white head. Fresh piney, floral hoppy, lightly earthy, pale malty flavor. Bitter, herbal, piney, slightly floral hoppy, lightly citrusy, lemon, sweet pale malty flavor. Solid APA, albeit pretty hoppy.

Pour thanks to Aaron, pour is hazy yellow with nice white head, aroma has notes of grassy lemon, hints of cracker, biscuit, slight grapefruit oils. Nice and crisp. Taste is a nice mix of grass, lemon, some pine, nice fruity notes with some orange, hints of toffee and crackers, biscuit, finishing fairly smooth. Wish I had this on a warm summer day, delicious and refreshing.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
9 dec 2011, bottle. Light yellow and a bit cloudy. Slightly sweet, old lemony citrus w sOme straw notes. Thin body and fizzy. Doesn’t deliver much. A bit watery with some lemony notes. Like a lemony hop lager but not as fizzy.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2013 hazy effervescent tangerine, soapy thick head, moderate lacing. resinous nose, grapefruit, moderate dough and coin. Flavor is thicker, more barky, high attenuation with some cheese and orange in finish, mid showing melon and citrus, bit of mint and cardboard. Decent nose, mediocre flavor.

Had again. Damn Sam! Quaffable pale ale, tons of bitterness with no messy sugars anywhere

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
500ml Bottle: Aroma of hops, pine, citrus, resin, and slight malt. Poured a muddy gold/amber/flaxen color with a medium-sized, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, pine, resin, caramel, and citrus. Medium body. Tingly, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium bitter, hop, malt, pine, citrus, resin finish is dry. A lot like their Zoe with less hops and less alcohol.

On draught at When Pigs Fly in Kittery, ME. Arrived to the table a hazy gold with a film for a head that left light lace. There is really no aroma to speak of with this beer. I sampled the aroma more than once and there is just nothing there. The flavor is malt with some mild lemon followed by some mild-moderate hops bitterness. Light-medium bodied.
