Thunder Ann came about after a massive google search trying to come up with a name that we thought could represent our American Pale Ale. That’s how we found out about a little lady name Sally Ann Thunder Ann Whirlwind Crockett. She was Davy Crockett’s wife (well, in the folklore, according to Wikipedia, he married someone named Mary) and she was a bad ass. Seriously. Look her up. We mulled it over and thought that Thunder Ann could also be a pretty great name for a beer.

3.64/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

No freshness date, poured into a pint

A- pours a slightly hazy amber color with a two-finger foamy and sudsy head that retains nicely long after the pour

S- nice hoppy aroma with notes of pine, citrus and floral hops. Underlying malty sweetness adds a touch of bready aroma

T- well balanced with some fruity hop notes, lightly toasted bready malt, slightly bitter finish

M- medium body with lots of carbonation leads to a big foamy mouthfeel and a sudsy and crisp dry finish

O- enough noticeable fruity hops, but well balanced to keep it in check for the style (568 characters)

Pours dark orange with a white, persistent head and lacing. The smell isn't anything special, but it isn't bad either. There's a citrus presence with a little pine hidden within. It tastes very IPA-like, albeit a little less hoppy. Overall, it's a very balanced and enjoyable APA. (284 characters)

Very nice beer. Found under local brews category at The Beer Seller in Nashville.
Hazy color, beautiful amber color, mild head, sweet, hoppy but not flowery. Very nice beer

Slight rings down the glass as it empties. People addicted to the head (the part that you don't drink ) might complain, but dont let it bother you.
Hazyness reminds me of a homebrew, but a great homebrew. I highly recommend you try one if you have a chance to try. (439 characters)
