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...

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
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.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger, Folly Pack. Pours a deep copper color, clear, with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of coffee, toffee and mild earthy hops. The taste is coffee, dark fruits, mild caramel. very mild hops in the finish. Thin-medium bodied. Interesting.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Draft at Choice City in Fort Collins. Dark cherry red colored body with a small tan head. It looks filtered, it shines some brighter red hues in the middle of a dark cedar and black cherry body. Strange flavor, not sure I can do a good job describing this, but it tastes like smoked nuts and stale bread up front, with some creamed fruit (black cherries?) and bran muffin notes over the back. Stale and old are words that come to mind... and the flat and flabby body doesn’t help things. At times it seems like black cherry flavored soda. Espresso? News to me. Did something go wrong here or is this just not my thing?
