This beef arrives a clear copper color. The head is an inch in height and recedes slowly into a nice cap of lacing. The aroma is of nectarines, peaches, and apricots. The taste is similar to the aroma, with a nice firm bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a velvety texture. Overall, this is a fine beer that I will hunt down again.

Reviewing off memory:

Fresh Hop 100 has the look of a festive and scrumptious pale ale: Highlighted by a crisp amber body and a silky head. This is about the as appetizing it gets. The nose dominates as strong tropical fruit flavors overwhelm the aroma. Mainly big lemon/pine hops and subtle juicy exotic flavors. There is definitely some caramel malt in there taboot. I actually found a big ole' hop nugget in the growler which adds to my score!

Overall, the taste is very underwhelming after a fantastic aroma. Really balanced and drinkable ale with a big pinecone punch. There are citrus flavors in there but they are relatively muted.

This beer reminds me so much of Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale. It's the kind of beer I could drink all day and it will never get old. That said, I had high hopes for the taste and it nothing too special.

Town Hall's 2013 fresh hop beer. This year featuring my favorite hop-citra!
A-served in a pint glass with a thin finger of dense off white sticky head, this brew is light amber and clear.
S-oh daddy-here come the citra! Citrus-tangerine and tropical fruit with a dankness that is all citra. Juicy.
T-the aroma beats the taste-that nice citra taste is there but dampened by a bitterness that takes away from the malty quality of this beer
M-light bodied and a bit resinous. Quite drinkable.

O-a nice beer but lacks the high drink ability of say Schells citra pils or pure balls of Surly wet citra from 2011. Don't get me wrong I'd bathe in this beer but it's not the orgasm I've come to expect in a single hop citra beer (PseudoSue).
