On tap at new belgium. Aroma is rich with espresso and a bit nutty. Lighter bodied than i expected, but nice and malty, with a slightly bitter coffee aftertaste bconch (434) - - JUL 31, 2013
Nice smells of coffee in nose. Taste is an odd blend of coffee and lemon but it works. Heavy coffee on finish. rollinsr (799) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JUL 29, 2013
Pours brown with ample tan head. Aroma is mostly coffee flavors with some roasted nutty flavors as well. Flavor has more of the java but instead of leaving the palate dry and bitter, there is more of a rounded tartness to it compliments of the lemon peel. bubbleflubber (2231) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at the brewery, this pours brown with a thick soapy head. The aromas of coffee are incredible. Flavors have coffee, but suffer a bit from the hollow body. Some zest and peel notes finish with espresso. I really wanted to like it more. With more substance on the palate, this would go next tier easily.

Sweet coffee aroma...very effervescent...almost cola like. The color is deep red copper. Taste is a little flat and the espresso comes thru at the end. A little sourness and vaguely malty sweet. Not too bad.

Great aroma of coffee and vanilla. Pretty copper color with lots of carbonation but no head. Taste is nice - like a light coffee porter you could drink on a warm summer day. Not something I would drink all the time, but a good beer.

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. eeblah (106) - Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Very odd beer that has caffeine. Very nice aroma reminding you off breakfast. For what it is it is nice to drink but definitely not one you want to drink to many of. arminjewell (9689) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Pours dark brown with off white head, aroma is odd with coffee, roast, and a touch of citrus. Taste is little bit of lemon up front, bitter version, but blended into coffee and roast, with a bitter finish. Not bad, odd combination but decent. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2010
