COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Somersault is a fun roll around on the tongue, while requiring only the minimum of palate gymnastics. This is the perfect summer lounge-around beer. Somersault tumbles out with citrus aroma from Centennial hops, a soft apricot fruitiness tucked into the flavor, a full mouthfeel from the addition of oats and a crisp, dry finish from the subtle addition of ginger.

Bottle@Matt and Amyís 10th anniversary shindig, Sandy Lane, CA, 12/08/12. Orange gold with a fine, generously lacing white collar. Herbs, parsley and sherbet lemon on the snout. Soft, nuanced lemony stuff with a delicate Belgian-style....something. Elegant.

Poured a slightly pale orangish copper color. Aroma is hoppy with pine and some caramel. Taste is also hoppy with pine. Some caramel flavors with some malty sweet flavors. Balance is a little off, but not bad. Interesting choice for summer. Some light fruity flavors with a good amount of hops on the finish. Not bad.

Itís Sep 3rd, approaching the eventual melding away and off of this yearís summer but quite not yet so the aleís premise is still in effect. Turn upside down the label and itís a pretty damn steep hill to roll down on. There is, however, a nice place to relax the tastes at when there and when finished. (Iíd heard there ainít gonna be no more 2 Below come this winter, be it so?)

Nice. Crisp summer beer. Taste like a citrusy pale ale. Good balance with a lean to the hoppy side. Would buy again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Summer is not my favorite seasonal and NB is not my top brewery, but this turned out to be a nice summer surprise from Fort Collins. Clever, pretty label. A floral-sweet hop aroma emanates from a dark gold pour with a nice head of foam. It tastes like a pale ale with some citrus flavors - lemon and grapefruit. The label mentions oats and apricots. There is a nicely balanced tension between sour, bitter, and sweet elements. Real nice.
