Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A: Pours well, light but balanced white head. Crisply carbonated. Has a drinkable look for hot weather while still retaining a nice fair dark color in terms of APA's. Coppery in color.

S: Smells of citrus and pine. A nice combo of oaky yet refreshing.

T: Crisp in flavor. Pine and yeasty aftertaste the middle citrus, makes for a comfortable sip. Aftertaste is classic APA standard of slightly bitter but refreshing.

M: Hoppy feel, right in the middle of it's APA label. Crispy citrus hops, feels like cascades.

O: I am a sucker for a good APA, this is definitely up there in terms of drinkability for humid, TN summers. Not as hoppy as some, hoppier than others. Right in the APA wheelhouse. It's a constant in my fridge.

I had the Thunder Ann as art of a flight in a restaurant in Nashville. It had the same coloring as the two IPAs I tasted, too. The smell was unremarkable - it just smelled like fresh, drinkable beer.

It's very drinkable and has a great mouthfeel that lingers for a surprising long time (which I liked). I could drink a few of these without tiring of it and would be quite happy. I would order it again, no doubt. That said, it didn't blow me away, but that's okay, too. It's very Summit Pale Ale like... Sierra Nevada PA, too.
