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.

Pour is a light golden yellow with lots of white head. Very nicely balanced nose, very clean grain bill up front, bready and lightly doughy. Hop balance adds a strong hop punch. A good bit of citrus and a hint of resiny hop. Taste is also very balanced, the grain bill is nicely done, bready and just a touch of dough. Malt gets a touch sweet moving into a citrusy hop, a hint of herbal hop and a faint pepper in the back. Body is lighter, a touch slick and has an assertive carbonation.

Cirrhosis (1204) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Sitting in my backyard taking a break from weeding out the hell spawn known as dandylion from my grass as the sun starts to set in the west. Yummy! Main seems to do all things awsome! Hoppy and clean and light on the palate. Grassy lemon up front, pennies in the finish. Zest of fresh citrus fruits, and a clean sweetness. Aftertaste lingers with a light bitterness. Mellon...... honeydew mellow really starts to show up as I sit and slowly drink. What a nice night. Dam this is sooooo good. Just hit bubble gum, not sure where thats coming from. Ha a random cat just appeared on my garage roof. Juniper berries??? If it weren’t for the 10$ a bottle I’d have a fridge full of this stuff.

Tap @ Bru Philly Beer Week - hard to imagine a better pale ale than this. Great aroma of citrus and pine sap, glowing pale gold, crisp, refreshing, dry hoppy clean finish. I wish this was available more here.

Bottle. Crisp yellow pour, with fingers of frothy white head. Aroma, citrus, grass, tropical fruits, and some light malt sweetness. Taste, prickly carbonation, mild tropical fruits/citrus, mild bitterness, grassy, with a dry semi bitter finish. Overall, very solid pale ale, not too hoppy, or bitter, really well rounded.

500ml bottle pours a hazy golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is floral and citrus with hints of apple and cereal grains. Taste is a citrus hop bitterness with a light fruit and grainy malt sweetness. Medium body with abundant carbonation which leaves the palate fully refreshed. A high quality APA that is definitely in need of tasting.
