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.

Draft at Churchkey. Hazy light yellow/gold pour with a frothy white head. Nose and flavor bring beautiful clean grapefruit, grassy bitterness and notes of orange zest and pine. A lovely, incredibly sessionable pale ale. Excellent.

cheap (4477) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2015
Nice big solid bottle as pictured from my son in law. Bright beery smells from the moment you pop the top. Pour is gentle pale beer with a cloudy ending. Good co2 as it goes down the gullet. Somewhat refreshing. Better than most rude-ish IPA feelings fer sure. Does have a brighter astringent bitterness about it in the finish.Yes, fairly easy to take, even for a lager lover. APA with good personality.

Spicy citrus hop aroma. Appearance is a pale yellow with a white head with good retention. Flavor has a pleasant citrus character. Malt flavor is way in the background and has notes of crackers. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear gold with moderate head that settles quickly. Aromas of grapefruit, pine and biscuity malts. More lager type malt flavors with some floral notes and a bitter pine finish. Simple and clean.
