Beer added by: sommersb on 08-04-2012

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 -1.9%
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

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.

Solid beer, but not outstanding. Still solid though.
