Sweet coffee aroma...very effervescent...almost cola like. The color is deep red copper. Taste is a little flat and the espresso comes thru at the end. A little sourness and vaguely malty sweet. Not too bad.

Great aroma of coffee and vanilla. Pretty copper color with lots of carbonation but no head. Taste is nice - like a light coffee porter you could drink on a warm summer day. Not something I would drink all the time, but a good beer.

Bottle @ home picked up at RJs Fort Collins. This was included in their 2013 mix twelve back as a throwback to 2008. I had more than a few of one babies pre-RateBeer @ the Steakout Saloon. In all honesty, I probably got all kinds of fucked up on Giddy Up. Let’s roll. Pours a hazy orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. Burnt roasty coffee, light chocolate, a bit citrusy/fruity aroma. Somewhat bitter, candied toffee, roasty coffee, chocolate, lightly fruity flavor. Not particularly hard to drink but I’m not a huge fan of the coffee flavor and the citrus notes.

Very odd beer that has caffeine. Very nice aroma reminding you off breakfast. For what it is it is nice to drink but definitely not one you want to drink to many of.

Pours dark brown with off white head, aroma is odd with coffee, roast, and a touch of citrus. Taste is little bit of lemon up front, bitter version, but blended into coffee and roast, with a bitter finish. Not bad, odd combination but decent.

Pours a clear, reddish gold, with a very small head. Light aroma is slightly sweet and slightly coffee, perhaps like a watered down flavored coffee drink. Flavor is about the same, some sweet malt notes with some bitter coffee accent to it, especially in the finish.

Big thanks to BelgianBeerGal for giving me my 30th New Belgium rating. Bottle (23Jan2009). Pours with a hazed ruby copper colored body and a large tan head. Aroma of coffee, light rum, caramel, sweet potato, dirt, ash, tobacco, lemon, and pepper. Taste is a bit mellow. Somewhere between tea with some lemon slices and coffee. Sweet tea like finish. Minimal bitterness. Sort of bubbly and thin. Not unpleasant in any way, very easy to drink.

Bottle. Redish brown color with medium head. Aroma of coffee and citrus fruits with notes of cinnamon, caramel and very light chocolate. Taste is lightly bitter, also somewhat creamy, coffee really comes out. Nice tight finish.

Bottle:   Reddish hued copper, on the pale side, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Weak coffee aroma... yup, thats about it.   On the tongue it seems like old Earl Gray tea mixed with some expresso beans.   Not all that pleasing I might add.   Some lemon sucrets that have barely started to disolve in my tea/coffee concoction are noticeable on the backside.   Who cares that this has a moderate body and mouthfeel, I just can’t think of any good reason to continue drinking this.   FAIL
