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.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of Amarillo, citrus, orange, light pine, and some toasted malts. Taste of citrus, tropical fruits, light grass, pine, and juicy hop finish.

On tap. Incredibly strong aromas of citrus and grass and hops. Pours a bright cloudy amber. Very bitter aftertaste but light, not the best balance. Interesting and refreshing

On tap at TJ’s. Hazy yellow brown with brief white froth. Nose is toffee, pine, orange and grapefruit. Medium body with crisp biting carb; super drinkable and refreshing. Taste is lemon lime, a little pine and honey with a lingering bready finish. Great pale.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 On tap at Tj’s with Court, Bri, and Alan, pours hazy golden orange with light head, and not much lacing. Notes of lemon, citrus hops, well water, grapefruit, grass and clean malt. Good bit of the motueka came out as it warmed up a bit. Body is super juicy with crisp, bitter lemon hop finish. Awesome session ale but I prefered the double dry hopped spring fever in Vt to this. Just lacked enough flavor but what do you expect for a 4% beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Très citronné et sèche avec une présence d’amertume très discrète, manque un peu de nuance au niveau des saveurs de houblons mais sinon, buvabilité excessive.

From notes. 2L growler straight from the source. Pours a semi-clear yellow with a healthy white head. Shared with my brother. Smells of citrus, pine, and hay, super clean. Taste follows with the citrus and resinous pine, and again super clean finish. Great summer blonde... hope this makes an appearance again in 2013.

On draft at Blackback.
Pours a light, hazed yellow with a dense white head. Leaves plenty of lace and thing ring as the head fades. Crisp bready malt and lemon/citrus hop aroma; nicely balanced. Light bodied, well carbonated with a dry grassy and citrus bitter hop finish. Flavor has a strong bready malt base and tons of lemon and grass, with mild grapefruit juiciness. Amazing for a blonde.
