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. PhillyCraft (7716) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
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.

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. tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2016

Golde hazy. Really dank weedy herby nose, malty slight .. sort of grainy, but in a soft niceish manner. Lightish bodied. Citrus, pale faded malts. Dryish hoppy finish. Once again, like the balance.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2016 750mL growler filled 4/29/16 and drunk 5/4/16.egajdzis (6692) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Thoroughly hazy, though not soupy, soft, peachy-gold body is topped by a white head showing strong retention.
Very dry nose yields fresh, clean water and minerality, with light fruitiness very slowly building up from the hops. Amazingly, the simcoe add no pine/cherry and just a touch of juicy grapefruit. Amarillo add woodsy and softly citric character while motueka adds its very similar character (leafy, green, lightly vegetal, soft citrus and nectarine). Crackers and whitebread in the background stay out of the way of the hops which continue to crescendo with warming and breathing, eventually ending with juicy nectarine, peach and lemon, and a light smattering of honey.
Incredibly dry (but with an ample, malty texture and tight carbonation) in the flavor with a bare cracker-like maltiness. Hops are incredibly well-controlled adding only modest bitterness and absolutely no resin. Hints of key lime and grapefruit rind are the extent, with plentiful yellow fruit and woody, leafy, vegetal (not spoiled vegetal, but a good vegetal. Like fresh, live, vibrant vegetation). Supremely delicate and phenomenally well-executed.
Catches you off guard. At first it seems a bit light (which it is) but then 10 minutes later I’m saying, "Holy shit that’s good".
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.
