COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Lemon Peel and infused with Espresso
Giddy Up is a delicious juxtaposition of coffee, sustainably grown in Brazil and espresso-roasted locally, pressed into an ale with the deep color of a copper cowboy kettle. First whiff is full of sweeet caramel, toffee, latte. Then, a hint of lemon scone flavor from the addition of lemon peel. Body is creamy, resonant of espresso, yet the finish is bright, even a bit frisky. An ale to git along with...

pours a dark mahogany with a small tan head. the aroma is sweet coffee and very nutty. i do not pick up much citrus or lemon. very sweet almost sugary aroma. the taste is very similar to the aroma, however, you do pick up some of the lemon on the taste. this is a very weird combination but it goes very well together!

Bottle. Sweet nutty coffee, and light buttery caramel aroma. Clear chestnut with a small beige head. Flavor pretty much the same as the nose - sweet nutty coffee and buttery caramel. Light body, soft carbonation.

Copper pour with tan head. Nice aroma of sweet coffee, roasted malt, and citrus zest. Taste follows closely to the nose....sweet, roasty, bitter coffee, and lemon. Nice bitterness on the end. A perfect breakfast brew after a morning in the deer woods. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Enjoyed this more than I thought.

Not bad. It reminds me of the 1664. Nicely roasted with a hint, only a hint, of citrus at the end. Pretty mild, but not offensive.

Bottle. Clear reddish, dirty brown with a frothy tan head that lasts. Aromas of espresso, toasted malt, and light citrus. Flavor is coffee, caramel, and some nutty/earthiness. Light bodied.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle - Pours rosy brown with a filmy white head. Nose is milky sweet coffee with chocolate bread malt. Taste starts malty and bitter, then flows into light roast coffee, hot cocoa, hazelnut, and milky sweetness. Lots of carbonation on the finish masks the flavor. Thin and bubbly. Decent.

Backlog purge. From 12 oz bottle. Look I donít even want to write anything about this. Itís lemon peel and espresso in a beer. Of course itís bad. It canít be good. It isnít. It just tastes like dirty citrus.

Jerm719 (105) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Interesting mix. Medium body. Typical porter flavors. Light roasted coffee, hinted with mild citrus hops. I expected a watery finish.. Yet it has a decent finish. Short finish, yet satisfying...

pours a clear dark brown with a minimal tan head. This beer is sweet and malty with a light taste of coffee and a slight spice. I feel the taste is slightly watered.

Pours a deep, dark mahogany. Mostly clear with a thin head and little retention. Aromaís are really delicious smelling and well-layered. Coffee for sure with toffee also apparent and a noticeable lemon twist as well. Tastes medium bitterness with light sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation and a firm bitter/lively/acidic? finish. Overall pretty cool and kindof a style bender.
