Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Doodler. Thanks, I think?!? Gigantic gusher. Pour is hazy orange with a big white head and great lacing. Bretty, tropical fruity, grapefruit, papaya, grass, biscuit, and dough in the aroma. Taste is papaya, mango, pineapple, grass, light weed, biscuit, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Clearly infected, yet somehow it works. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty, even though it was unintended.

Bottle @ Steve_0, courtesy of Doodler, thanks. Bottle shot off like a Mothefucker. Hazy golden appearance with a huge foamy white head. Aroma is bretty, juniper, and green hoppy. Chewy, twangy flavor. Some plastic and tropical fruits. This one is off but still isnít bad.

AirForceHops (2986) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Draft @ Brew Pub served in a pilsner glass. Clear gold piss color. Small white head, no lace. Aroma is grainy, slight earthy notes and citrus hops. Taste is pretty much the same. Light to medium body. Average beer, but at least its drinkable. Nothing really interesting here. This is for sure made to keep the masses happy. I canít really say anything bad about it but with some many other interesting brews at the pub, I donít ever see ordering another.

Tap at brewery. Pours slightly hazy gold with average, creamy white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is cereal and biscuit malts, citrus and floral hops, lemon, apples, and light toast. Flavor is citrus and grassy hops forward with supporting bready malts, light fruit esters, and faint spice; dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Perhaps the lightest ipa Iíve ever had. I was in the mood for something heavy but was pleasantly suprised by this beer drinkability and without sacrificing much on flavor

In short: A clean light APA with focus on piney hops. Nice thirst quencher
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh (maybe fresh) a few weeks after it was given to me, thanks Scott
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is softly hopped with some green pine-needles and a floral component. Taste has a crisp and discreet semi-toasted malt backbone, very dry and crackery, a cross between regular salted crackers and Melba Toastsô. The beer also has a fluffy yeasty presence that actually help creating a fuller mouthfeel sensation. Then the hopping, surprisingly assertive, lots of dry pine-tree, some bitter grapefruits, sharp green pine-needles. Medium intensity bitterness. Not to say this is a hop-bomb, but the hops dominate the discreet malt backbone. I liked this beer, A light body, very clean and crisp. A light body thirst quencher for the bitter piney hops lovers. Nothing special here but Iíd still drink gallons of this beer, because I love beer and I donít care about the studies that say that excessive alcohol consumption causes short term memory loss, itís just a bunch of wimp scientists who canít handle beer, I wouldnít be surprised if next publish a study about excessive alcohol consumption causing short term memory loss. Pffff..
