Style | ABV
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.

Thanks to Deuane for sharing this growler on 10/3/10.
A - Poured a slightly hazy deep amber/orange with a frothy off-white head that produced lots of spotted lacing around the glass.
S - Pretty straightforward aroma combines floral and perfumy hop notes with a sweet malt presence.
T - Initial flavor is quite malty with hints of perfume and floral notes, giving the hop character quite a bit of sweetness. Caramel malt and honey notes add even more sweetness to the pot.
M - Medium bodied and scantily carbonated, resulting in a kind of thin and watery mouthfeel overall. Finishes sweet on the palate with very little lingering hop bitterness.
D - Definitely one of the best named beers I've come across. Wish I could say the same about the other attributes, though. Overall, my pecker is still intact. I found this to be a little too sweet and malty with a muted hop presence.

Poured a very orange color, with little head and no lacing. Very bitter cloying aroma, with a huge citrus and slight grassy scent. Very cloying taste, with an over-abundance of citrus hops without enough malt to back it up. Not a bad finish, but not very hoppy and not very deep.

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.
