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.

Flawless. Hints of lemon in the flavor. Great head retention and brilliant clarity. Aroma is full of fruitiness. Love this!

Pour is slightly hazy yellow with a thin but dense white head. Nose is grains and malty sweetness with a fruity hop bouquet. A bit soapy. Taste is caramel malts first followed by a light long pine hop bitterness. All accompanied by citrus and herbal flavors. Dry finish. Great mouth feel!

Bottle: Slightly haze, pale straw & pear colored body with a super foamy, chunky, & long-lasting head; bright white & vibrant. Aroma of zesty grass, perfume, light florals, & a mild fruity sweetness from the blend of pale malts & hops that’s very reminiscent of Fruity Pebbles. Flavor is a touch watery, but contains that same Fruity Pebble-esque hoppage up front. Mild citrus, tropical notes, wet grass, lemon zest, citrus peel, & a hint of grainy malts towards the finish. Light bodied, light finish. Another nice pale ale from Maine, though I’d choose MO over this.

Aroma is lemon grass,clove, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is light sweet malts which transition to a medium bitterness that is fairly strong but finishes smoothly with slight tartiness. Appearance is a hazy gold/orange with pearl white head that retains fairly well.

500ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Cloudy yellow in colour with a large and long lasting white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is highly hoppy, lots of fruit, pale malts. The flavour is of citrus, floral hops, fruity, light malt, moderate bitterness. Finishes long, bitter, citrusy. Quite nice.

SpongeRuiner (773) - Michigan, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Picked up a bottle while in Chicago. This one pours a bright deep yellow. Very fogged. An aggressive white colored head. A mild aroma of lemon zest and a slight hop bitterness. A yeasty bready taste. Full hop malt and a mostly fruited hop character balanced with a floral background. The lemon zest flavor comes back in the end. Good stuff. Very drinkable. Very dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong citrus and floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with nice hop bite, grain, citrus, light bitterness, very good.

500 ml bottle to half-pint glass (thanks DuffMan). Bottled on 05/13/14, so it’s a little beyond the suggested 90-day window, but I’m going to enjoy and rate it anyway. Looks good; a hazy apricot with ample foamy eggshell head. Smell is lots of citrus with a medium-bodied bittersweet malt backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. I’d like to revisit it fresh off the bottling line, but it’s still pretty damn good right now.

Au début, j’ai lu «Pepper Ale» sur l’étiquette et j’ai trouvé que la finale houblonnée apportait une touche poivrée à cette bière. Je suis influençable comme ça! Puis j’ai finalement réalisé que c’était écrit «Peeper Ale»... en maintenant fermement mon avis sur la finale poivrée. Dans la vie, losrqu’on persiste, on doit signer. Tout ce que brasse cette brasserie est bon. TOUT! Celle-ci offre une jolie valse de houblons où chaque variété est mise en valeur dans un solo déchirant.

50cl bottle from Mr A’s in Palatine. Best by bottle date says "12C313" with a 114 over further right? Seriously, what is that? Pours golden orange with a white head. Looks belgian. Aroma appears to have dead hops all over the place, so I guess that answers the bottle date question. Sweet malty, some orange juice. Blah. Citrus and sweet malts in the flavor. Old barnyard. Sigh. Will have to find another sometime. 11.8.
