Bottle dated 5/29/18 into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy gold-straw color with a 2-finger off-white head. Initial impression is light citrus rind, lemon, grass, and floral notes, well-balanced by bready and caramel malts. Carbonation is less than the head would lead you believe. Clean and bright mouthfeel - refreshing and very drinkable. Finish has a nice fade to a slight bitterness. A good IPA but not exceptional.

1 pt. 0.9 fl oz bottle poured into a mug. Pours with a one-and-a-half finger head of lively carbonation with great retention. Color is a clear pale gold. The nose is fairly light, and it reveals caramel and biscuit leading into a more floral finish, showcasing clover, honey, and peaches. It reminds me of a more British-style American Pale Ale, which tend to be more malt-forward than hoppy. Mouthfeel is rounded, with quickly-dissipating carbonation that was in less quantity than I expected. The flavor has a great balance throughout; there is initially a strong malt presence with a touch of honey, which gives way to a slightly grassy and hoppy finish. Post-swallow, the flavors work in reverse, with a light bitterness in the back of the tongue dissipating shortly to give way to floral sweetness.

Pours a clear straw color with a well retained fluffy inch and a half white head that left nice lacing. Smells and tastes of citrus (lemon and lemon zest), floral elements, grass, bready malts and white pepper. Slight sweetness to the taste. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, finishes dry with light bitterness.

Poured from a tall bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear light golden pour with massive fluffy white head. Great retention and lacing.

S: Crackery grains... floral and citrusy... slight grass.

T/F: Follows the nose. Mild grainy sweetness followed by modest bitterness. Great floral/grassy notes. Light citrus/lemon rind... pepper. Crisp and very clean. Well carbonated... drys at the finish.

O: An awesome American Pale. Delicious beer, clean, and clearly well made. I could drink this every day.

Peeper is a 5.5% American pale ale from Maine Beer Company.

This beer pours a golden straw, with a thick, foamy head that lingers with good carbonation.

The smell is floral and grassy with a hint of citrus zest and pepper.

Taste is rather dry up front, with the floral notes coming through. Minimal hop flavor, all the way through with a lingering pine.
