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.

Can at Local Gastropub, Memphis, TN

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and does not have any visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of citrusy hops and notes of floral hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of floral and citrusy hops along with underlying hints of caramel malts.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has moderate amount of carbonation. No crispness is detectable.
O: This APA seems to be a little muted.

Serving type: can

12 oz can from TN with a 21 Feb. 2017 canning date.

Hazy amber body topped by a semi-durable off-white head.

Aroma; dank tropical fruits. The flavor largely follows and includes some grassy notes and light funk. Mild bitterness that's typical for style.
Medium body with medium carbonation.

This and Yazoo's Pale Ale are two of the best in Nashville. This is very drinkable and perhaps my favorite year-round beer that Jackalope produces.

Jackalope Brewing "Thunder Ann"
on tap at the brewery, 4 April 2015

Notes: Golden-orange body beneath a bright white head. Average retention and lacing. Clean but not bold nose of citrusy, piney, woody hops over a bready malt base. The flavor simply repeats the aroma. It's not bold, but there are some pleasant hops going on. Very even keel . Nicely balanced. Drinkable.
