COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Local Harvest Ale is brewed with hops grown in Maine. The abundant aroma of citrus, pine, and lemongrass come from hopping this beer four ways: in the mash, in the kettle, steeped, and dry hopped. This auburn Autumn classic is balanced with the careful addition of chocolate and caramel malts to create this extremely popular Single Batch Series ale.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours dark amber with a thick, fluffy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy and piney hops with caramel and slightly roasted malts. Flavor very strong on the hops for this style of beer. Average texture. A good pale ale.

AirForceHops (2953) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On draft at brewpub in Gorham, ME. Color was caramel brown with a thin white head that left nice lacing. Aroma was of piney hops. Taste mirrors the aroma. However there was no hop bitterness which made it smooth to drink. I would drink again and was surprised on how flavorful it was.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks go lukaduke. Pours a very hazy copper color with a beige cap of foam. The aroma has light resinous and a cotton candy note. The taste doesn’t have much in the way of bitterness until the finish. Sweetness is dominant here.
