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.

Great stuff. Poured slow and still produced a massive head. Very light carbonation and mellow hop character make for a super sessionable brew. The aroma is pretty light on the nose but the minute you take a sip the flavor really blossoms. Iíd love to try this on tap.

Fruit juice, pineapple, mango, citrus with a nice pine finish. Very refreshing and ever so slightly tart, a bit peppery with some herbal inputs and very floral.

ctipping (112) - Florida, USA - JUN 15, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2015 500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. Originally reviewed 4/3/2011. Pours a beautiful golden color with a substantial white head. The head recedes leaving sticky lacing. Very slightly hazy. Citrusy hop aroma. Orange and orange peel aromas. A wonderful scent that translates nicely into a citrusy hop flavor. Maybe the aroma is better than the flavor, but not by much. The hop character is backed up by a slight caramel flavor and a very slight malty sweetness. Just heavy enough to make me think itís closer to an IPA than an APA. Medium carbonation is par for the course. Great APA,

Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid beer.

On tap at Meadhall. Brilliant tropical and citrus aroma. Sessiony taste with bright fruity hops. Fairly dry, with a bitter finish. Nice.

yngwie (15191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle, 50cl. A hazy, pale yellowish golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma is rather citrusy, with some flowers and citrus zest. Itís dry and medium to full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. The flavor has citrus zest and flowers dominating, but thereís also a herbal, peppery touch that first made me think this beer were made with a saison yeast. Quite bitter, both initially and in the long, dry finish. Unusual result considering the hop use, but I like it. Itís tasteful, refreshing and quenching. 150609

bavarian81 (99) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Poured into a tulip glass, very cloudy gold.. almost straw yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is an interesting blend of floral hops and light malt. The palate is quite nice; soft, crisp mouth feel with a good amount of carbonation. The taste is a nice blend of bitterness, sweetness, and spiciness. While I canít point my finger on anything specific, I thought there was also a faint citrus flavor.. I want to say lemon.

Really enjoy the Amarillo hops in this one, they balance the centennial to create a really nice aroma and flavor. Plus at only 5.5% you can have a few.
