BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Cool Springs Brewery
Tennessee, United States
coolspringsbrewery.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Inspired by the original Pecker Wrecker recipe, this beer is brewed in the style of an India Pale Ale, a “dry hopping” technique is used where generous amounts of hops are added to the beer during its maturation stage which gives the beer an unmistakable floral and citrusy aroma. This beer is also known for its firm hop bitterness which is balanced nicely by the sweetness of the crystal malts used in this recipe.

stopped by Cool Springs Brewery for the first time today. sampled 4 of their brews and went with a growler of their IPA.

pours a cloudy amber that is a little darker than most ipa's I've seen. nice frothy head that doesn't hang around long. leaves good amount of lacing all the way down the pint glass

smells of pine resin, hops, citrus and floral bouquet. almost a hint of sweeter notes in there, maybe caramel

taste much like it smells. starts with pine, citrus, & light hops. almost no flavor stays on the palate. its like the flavor profile dissipates and leaves you with a watered down lite beer taste. tries really hard to make a comeback as the beer warms but ultimately lacks depth.

light to medium body with an average amount of carbonation

this is an average ipa at best. I was excited to buy a local beer brewed here in Nashville and really wanted to like it. lacks that depth that the better ipa's have achieved. don't know that I would buy again.

Had this on tap at Cool Springs in Franklin, TN.

A- One finger white foamy head on a clear golden copper body.

S- Very strong citrus notes, mostly tart grapefruit.

T- bitter hops, white grapefruit, sweet malt flavor, with a piney finish to balance the tartness of the grapefruit.

M- Moderate carbonation.

O- Great beer! Not only is the name amazing, but the beer itself is delicious and sure to please any hop head like me! :) I could drink this all day!
