COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American-style ale brewed one barrel at a time. The malt bill is built on American two-row malt and accented by crystal 10, Vienna, and white wheat malts. Magnum hops give the beer a nice clean bittering and Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hop varieties provide a pleasant floral and citrusy hop flavor. A healthy dose of additional Amarillo and Centennial are dry hopped to give this beer an inviting hop aroma. The beer is fermented with a neutral yeast strain and allowed to dry out so it finishes crisp and clean.

Note: Formerly known as Spring Peeper.

Flawless. Hints of lemon in the flavor. Great head retention and brilliant clarity. Aroma is full of fruitiness. Love this!

Very refreshing pale ale, crisp hops, nice malt backbone. Citrus, tropical fruits and a crisp bit of pine in the finish. Flavorful yet sessionable, great beer for sipping on the porch on a summer day

16oz brown bottle, batch #3, purchased at Whole Foods in Portland, Maine. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a good two inches of off-white rocky head that slowly dissipates. Citrussy American hops (C-hops?) come through strong on the aroma, with notes of orange, lemon, grapefruit, and pine. Tastes very hoppy too, but not in an unbalanced way. There’s just enough biscuit and caramel to balance this very hop forward beer. Orange, grapefruit, lemon jump out immediately, with strong pithy, grassy, and piney notes, as well as a touch of cattiness in the finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied with a smooth creamy carbonation. Leaves a fair bit of lacing as the beer is drank. Very well done - definitely one of the finest APAs I have ever had, up there with Dale’s and others. Dangerously drinkable, super tasty, but not overwhelming on any count. I am impressed and I can’t wait to see what this brewery does next. Thanks guys for having "decided... to share"!

Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is awesome. Lots of bright zesty almost noble citrusy hops with a lot of zesty/spicy character. A very crisp palate with a bright zesty aroma. Lean and light with a bit of peppery spicy character. There is a little bit of soft fruitiness and a very clean and bright hop character. My words haven’t really done the beer justice because they’ve absolutely nailed the balance between the hops and light lean malt. Fresh and zesty. One of the best, if not the best APA I’ve ever come across.

Possibly my favorite beer that is rather widely available in Washington, D.C. and on the East coast. Very well-hopped, but balanced out by slight citrus/grassy notes and a tad of grain in the finish. The appearance is unmatched in my opinion with a head that can last seemingly for hours and a beautiful, murky, gold color as it is unfiltered. It looks the way a German helles/zwickel is meant to look, but is clearly an American ale due to the slightly heavier hops that you will find in this beer. Incredible stuff. If you ever see this on draft, it is a must.

Tap @ Bru Philly Beer Week - hard to imagine a better pale ale than this. Great aroma of citrus and pine sap, glowing pale gold, crisp, refreshing, dry hoppy clean finish. I wish this was available more here.

Light golden color citrus aroma very smooth going down with a well balanced fresh hop finish. Great beer.

Pale gold, good clarity. Nose is nectarine, lemon. Flavor is same plus pine accents, light orange zest, grainy/toasty/bready malt comes through near the finish. Ultra dry and light bodied.
