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.

Theydon_Bois (11491) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle from Wholefoods, the Bowery, drank at home during the mass online tasting of 03/12/13. Looks the absolute bollocks this chap, hazed orange amber with a billowing off white head that is in no mood to fuck off anytime soon ! Nose is pithy orange, melon, light grapefruit, citrus zest, touch of pine resin, toasted malts, light caramac bar. Taste carries a good slather of chalky mineral bite, orange pith, bitt citric hops, straw, diluted grapefruit, fleshy mango. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the closure. Top notch APA, well balanced, effortlessly drinkable.
