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.

Not as impressed with this ale as I was with the "Another One" IPA, but still a great tasting beer! Funny story is that my wife and I thought this was a pepper beer....goes to show that you should read the names of your beers carefully!

Bottle. This is back from the spring peeper bathes. Really well crafted pale ale with great hopping and balance.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from pikapp327. Light pour with a white head. Aroma is light, peppery, citrus, and bread. Taste is bitter, biscuits, and an almost minty citrus.

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle courtesy pikapp327. Pours a hazy golden yellow. White head. Aroma is lemongrass, weird hops, slightly sweet. Flavor is light hops, citrus but leafy. Finishes dry and hoppy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (112) - CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy golden straw with a fat finger of fluffy, soapy head with great retention and spotty, chunky lacing. Nose is mild grassy and herbal hops, citrus and light bready malt. Taste is similar, with light hoppy citrus and biscuit malt. Body is light and smooth, with soft carbonation and a medium dry bitter finish. A solid APA, crisp and refreshing. Restrained ABV and a light body make this an excellent summer beer.

VertBaconStrips (2060) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Smells great. Having a problem really tasting anything. The flavours seem to only make a notable appearance at the after taste stage. Very balanced. Light everything - melon, dry bitterness, full citrus, minor herbal bottom, smoothly carbonated. Well, I just finished it. It smelled great with some tropical, candy sweet, blueberry eggo walffles, something pink and succulent (not the almighty snizz), bready malts, it’s all in there. Enjoyed immensely despite struggling with upfront taste. A subtle treat.

Atom (1279) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle pours a hazy golden/yellow with a large white head. Aroma of citrus orange with mild hop spice and caramel biscuit malt, all around pretty mellow. Sweet dry caramel biscuit malt light hop spice and crisp citrus. Nice!

exeter (236) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Citrus and floral hop attack in an enjoyable, and inviting way. Backing sweet biscuit malt doesn’t overwhelm the hops but gives the body of work a nice balance. Very well done and delicious.

HeadyDE (470) - Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2014
growler fill at SL...pours a light golden yellow with a decent sized head...nose is rather inviting with citrus lemon..pineapple..to go along with the floral earthy grassy notes...mouthfeel is quite light bodied but not so in flavor profile..this packs a tremendous amount of taste into 5.5%. really pleasant tasting with the citrus..floral..right amount of hop bite yet toned down by the malt bill..very solid and has some cask type creamy mouth presence...very fresh and clean tasting and indeed does finish crisp..a top notch apa that is easy to drink and would naturally pair well with all type of foods...another winner from MBC..put out some 4 packs won’t ya?
