COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

Hoppy aromas, citrusy, caramel and malts there too. Medium head, leaves a nice lacing. Taste of hops and malt, palate is fullish. Overall pretty nice, Iíd have another :) Prefer this to the stone pale ale.

My main impression from this was tea leaves. Kind of like a light version of Three Floyds Alpha King. Amazing flavor for an ABV of only 4.4%. It would be a fantastic session beer, yet flavorful enough to satiate in a 12 ounce dose.

Bottle from Steinís Deli in New Orleans. Deep amber with fluffy head and delicate lacing. Aroma is a sweet hoppiness. It starts sweet with light hop follow through and a slight bitter finish. Tastes like it has more alcohol than it does. Reminds me a little of a tame IPA.

minihame2 (155) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2013
Nice, clear amber colour and a small tan head. Kind of faint aroma which I canít quite make out, hops and some berries I think? Taste has some bitterness to it which lingers for a while. Slightly hoppy taste with some citrus. Soft mouthfeel and easy carbonation. Very easy to drink beer but somehow I was left disappointed.

Alecwallace (155) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2013 Pours amber brown with a caramel head. Very strong citrus and pine aroma. This mellows and there is some malt in the taste, then as it warms the hops come back. Similar to a Summer Wine beer which eludes me at the time or writting, possibly Rogue.

Fruity yet hoppy aftertaste - a refreshing smooth joyous beer that gives you a lift (hence the name?!). Rated by BrewTom

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2012
Pours deep amber, with a thick white fluffy head. Aromas of grapefruit and pine dominate, backed up by an aggressive better flavour that leads into malt and a sour grapefruit finish.

Pours amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is very hoppy with hints of pine and citrus. Tast is nice. Hoppy but not too bitter.

Citrus aroma, citrus taste. I would have avoided this a few years ago but I very much enjoyed this brew. Poured from bottle into english pint, thin but lasting head with a nice deep amber color, almost red. Canít wait for warmer days this will be great in the summer.
