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...

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Aroma is strong grain notes, rye, nuttiness and cereal (possibly Life or Chex). The flavor is coffee/espresso, complex malts/grains, light fruit and a mix of slight tartness/mostly thick smoothness in the finish.

Stampion (146) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pour a nice dark amber. Well balanced. The coffee isn't too strong and works well with he mild citrus and malts. It's a keeper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

notalush (4835) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Pours a clear dark ruby - moderate lace - nose of earthy, caramelized sugars, vanilla, oily coffee bean, lightly tangy lemon - flavor is medium sweet toffee up front, followed by moderate coffee bean, earthiness/mushroom, a touch of smoke - lemon peal is hardly noticeable - finish of toasty malt and light coffee - a strange combo - not bad, but it doesn’t all work as well together as it could.

valpoaj (629) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle Pour - translucent brown with a thin head that recedes quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, coffee, hint of milk chocolate...very clean for the style. Flavor is different than anything I can recall, and it works quite well actually...malty beer flavor up front is quickly replaced by smooth espresso notes, and even a citrusy feel as well...ends with a considerable chocolate (& coffee) note. Sweet throughout, there is little to no hop presence here. Slight corn flavor mid-drink. Palate is very smooth and slightly rich - at least more viscous than I expected. Wouldn’t drink many of these, but not upset I have 3 more left to enjoy...

Fratto (2616) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Kroger. Clear brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is coffee, citrus, bread, and coffee. Taste is lemon up front, oily, and kinda dirty. Wish the taste had matched the smell.

kidmartinek (3640) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Pours dark brown but somewhat clear. The head is small and off-white. The aroma is mostly roasted coffee bean as is the flavor save for a tinge of lemon. I hope this doesn’t keep me up all night. Shoulda waited til breakfast. Is thi s beer or coffee lemon water with beer, nevermond.
