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...

The espresso is rather evident in the nose, overriding slighter notes of chocolate and lemon. Very novel flavor-almost earthy coffee grounds. A little sweetness and citrus as well. Id love to experiment a little with food pairings.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Coffee grounds and chocolate nose with hints of citrus. Brown/orange color with foamy head, medium tan head. Coffee liquor, mint, and marzipan sweetness, subtle bitter bite. Big carbonation, full body, coffee candy finish. Very interesting....coffee is expressed in a very sweet way, not really a roasted fashion, worth trying and would pair well with the right dish.

Draught at City Beers, SF Slightly hazy amber with a very brief head. Loads of coffee(-grounds) and citrus in both aroma and flavour. Pretty fizzy and slightly weird.

On tap at BJs, nice amber color and then a whiff of straight espresso. Amazingly one-dimensional in aroma, all espresso. The taste is complete espresso with a hint of citrus. The flavor and smell dont match the appearance at all, this was a weird beer. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 09-25-2008 04:36:19

graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2009
On tap at the Saucer in Houston. Pours a light, clear, brown into the glass with a thin white head. Aroma smells like fat tire served out of a coffee urn. Flavor really rubs me the wrong way. The coffee flavor I get from this beer tastes like a pot of coffee that you left sitting over a weekend and then tried to reheat. I love that a brewery of New Belgiums size experiments with beers like this, but for me this one was a complete miss.

This beer is easy to drink, but the coffe flavor is a bit out-of-place, it doesnt seem to fit with the beer.

Tap @ Freakin Frog, Las Vegas. As Id never seen this brew before, I thought why not order it. Pours amber with a tan head. Nose is sweet and light with hints of coffee. Taste is big, with a lot of coffee and espresso, overall not bad.
