Tap and growler. Awesome big super juicy hop aroma of pineapple, green grapes, oranges. Very fresh tasting. Taste is crisp refr eshing pineapple, melon, toast. Closest thing to gumball head ive ever tasted, but a bit juicier, more complex than gummed ball head. Just about the perfect session beer. Could go for the a few kegs of this bad boy. A little to good to be sure. Good candidate for a "desert island" beer.

Pours a hazy straw color with some head and some lacing on the glass.

The aroma is hop forward and citrusy with some juicy melon, & bright orange/orange-peel character. Really fresh and pungent, really nice smelling.

The flavor is again very fruit forward, citrusy with plenty of melon. Itís got some fruit rind character and a nice light bitterness. Very bright, very hoppy... not especially complex but thatís made up for by itís brightness and charm.

A real chill low boost & not a shelf beer at all.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 On tap at Tjís 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.

On tap at 2012 Hill Farmstead Festival of Farmhouse Ales. After an onslaught of Saisons the metal band fired up and the hoppy beers came out. This dank-nosed juicy C-hop piece quenched my thirst and desire for hops. Fat, sticky resin nose followed by a dry, light and balanced body with green hoppiness and a nip of minerals. Clean, delectable and forward.

AirForceHops (3115) - 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.

Growler thanks to 50belair! Pours cloudy golden, medium creamy off-white head with great staying power and nice lacing. Aroma is rich dank grapefruit, passionfruit, pine. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still nice, quite light sweet, light bitter, juicy, not harsh. Light body, soft on the palate, a bit watery.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a thick and foamy white head...outstanding retention and lacing. Aroma is citrusy with a mild fresh grassy aroma. Flavor is wheaty and has lots of fresh grassiness and nice orangey citrus. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a dry grassy/citrus bitter finish.

2L Growler. Pale hazy yellow, decent head that recedes quickly. Aroma of oranges, citrus peel, resinous hops and white flowers. Very aromatic. High lemon tartness blends wonderfully with leafy hops and citruz zest bitterness. Light bodied and dry finish makes it highly drinkable. I really like the actual summer beer trend. It reminds me of DDC Wallonade or TDD Traction ale with Hill Farmstead quality standards. This is a great preamble to the very promising low abv, high citrus series.

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 Łber-drinkable. I want a keg of this... every day of the summer.

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.
