Ed5388 (2148) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 On tap @ The Farmhouse (Burlington VT). Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thin foamy white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, and citrus. Taste is light citrus and grapefruit, some pineapple, and some cracker. Almost tastes like a light version of S&S 5. Nice crisp and really refreshing!

Cloudy white gold with a finger white head. Yeasty grassy aroma. Light and easy drinking with just a touch of hop. Sessionable is an understatement. Wow!

juicy, crisp, citrus, slight pine. soft and floral aromas and flavors. very very pale. incontrovertibly an important beer for anyone serious about finely crafted pale ales.

radarsock (944) - Vermont, USA - JUL 19, 2013
$8 for the 16 ounces at Positive Pie, in the new Hardwick location. Pours a meringue golden with a trim, sudsy, snowy white head. Aromas of limeade, cilantro, oregano, wheat cereal, bone marrow, and pilsner malt. Tastes similar, but unquestionably better: it’s of pine cones, fir leaves, American hops, russet potatoes, agave syrup, and seawater. Sweat and farmhouse yeast by swallow. Earthy and bittersweet. Likeable.

callmemickey (2884) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Glowing orange body, large white head, soapy lacing. Nose is light citrus, grass and grainy malt. Flavor is similar with grain becoming more predominant. Light bodied, a bit then in the middle, assertive hops, refreshing but a bit too light for the flavor profile.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Sample at the brewery on 7/6/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and grassy and piney hops. Very clean. Sweet malt flavor with grassy hop accents before a piney finish.

Growler at chopkofest pours gold with white head. An abundance of citrus mix in a touch of hay and earth. Body is slick.

Growler (750 ml). 2 days old! Huge thanks to Minderbinder for bringing me this beer! Hazy pale glowing yellow with a huge white head and intense lacing. Aroma of citrus (orange, tangerine), light pine, hops and floral notes. Taste is of citrus, mild piney hops, floral notes. Really hoppy, but only slightly bitter. Light body. Crisp. Good carbonation. Dry. This is a perfect summer beer. Great session ale. Tasty, citrusy, dry, extremely refreshing and über-drinkable. I want a keg of this... every day of the summer.

AirForceHops (3295) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 13, 2013
750 ml bottle from the brewery. Nice pale appearance with a cap of soapy head. Nose is very nice floral hops with clean pale malt. Taste is a vibrant array of hops and malt. Citrus, hay, cracker malt and light grassy hops. Light body with a dry texture. Finish is very clean and crisp. Perfectly balanced beer that I can drink all afternoon and into the evening. Damn Mr. Hill, that magic well water is working yet again! Excellent pale ale.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 Draft at THE FESTIVAL 2013 in Maine with Andrew, Jay and Kramer. Pours a light golden body with nice white lacing. Aroma is soft citrus notes and light funk - definitely making the Simcoe and Amarillo "duet" apparent. Mouthfeel is super soft, light and fluffy - notes of funky citrus and very light pine. Very nice light American Pale ale - would be great to be able to session on this, but I will probably never see it again.
