COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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...

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sort of a beige, lime-golden thing, with deeper copper tints and a wispy, off-white head showing poor retention.
Crushed coffee beans and light acidity, I suppose you might call it lemony, with sparse, biscuity malts, soda water and lighter vanilla notes....
Coffee in the mouth, stale, dry and turning lightly lactic/sour in the presence of the lemony acidity. Just a pinch of sweetness from the malt, certainly not enough to build a decent body or balance. Fizzy carbonation. Pretty bad stuff, unsurprisingly.

This is a lighter beer with a bit of lemon peel and it is infused with espresso that is a real bang.

Dark amber with off white head. Nice, strong coffee aroma. Same in the flavor. Just a touch of citrus.

Bought this as part of a mixed pack on my hunting trip last year. I dont really like coffee or lemon, so this score is about where youd expect from me, maybe even a little high, as you can easily discern both flavors. Forgot the bottle opener, so I had to use the deers brow tine to open the bottles. Gotta find something when youre thirsty!

Have I mentioned that most of New Belgiums beers taste like Fat Tire except for many of the Lips of Faith series?

Wow, this is actually pretty good. Clear mahogany brown pour with very faint diminishing offwhite head. Nose smells of chestnuts and espresso beans. Big malty/nutty flavor with more toffee and caramel. I dont find the lemon peel other than perhaps a slight bitterness of zest. The coffee is very remote, and in my opinion, the way it should be. A slight bit metallic and vegetal though. Decent job on this.

Man, this is a pretty good beer. Dark with a nice espresso kick and a twist of lemon. Theres very little bitterness, just enough to know youre drinking beer. This is a fine one.

Pours a very dark amber with a small tan head mostly dissipating. Nose is coffee and malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is of coffee, slightly burnt malt, toffee and a slightly dry hop finish. Lemon peel is lost in the coffee flavor. Good beer but not top tier.
