Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks troubles. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale, a bit of roastiness and chocolate notes. Flavor has light sweetness, mild roastiness, piney and resinous hops, slightly stale, and a finish with strong bitterness. Medium-bodied.

FROM NOTES: July 22, ’12 Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a tulip glass. A: Citrus and pine and some sweet and slightly roasty malt notes. A: Pours a deep garnet with a thin cap of tan head, quickly receding to a thin film that lasts for the duration and leaves thick swaths of lacing in the glass. T: Light roasted malts up front with faint whispers of chocolate to balance out the malt. Followed by floral hops that counter balance the malt flavor. Hints of bready malts toward the middle of the beer. Chocoalte malts come back with light roast notes toward the end. Piney hops give a nice crisp hop bite in this beer. Alcohol is light and clean tasting in the ending. P: On the thinner side of medium with good carbonation. O: As a fan of New Holland, I was totally pumped up to try this beer, maybe a little to pumped up. It wasn’t bad, by any means, but I felt un-impressed by the beer. I’ve heard that potential is wasted talent, and that seems a bit harsh, but this beer clearly has a lot more potential than it expresses.

Onslow (1204) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pour from a 22oz bomber. A truly black brew iwth small tan head. Aroma of burnt grains, some resin. Taste is sweet malts and burnt grain at the start, very much like a sweet stout, a little coffee and bitter, at the start. Stays steady with a modest bit of resinous bitter at then end. Very enjoyable, but rather mild for the genre.

Gachupines (930) - USA - OCT 9, 2013
Black with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with mild pine hops. Flavor is bitter hops with a bitter roasted malt, almost like coffee grounds. Makes it a little overly bitter overall, but not unpleasant. Not bad, but it could be a little better balanced. Wife: 3.8

hotstuff (4229) - Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Rated on 6-12-2012 @ 800 Degree Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small tan head that mostly diminished, spotty amounts of lacing, and an opaque body. The Aroma is roasty malts, hoppy and semi-sweet. The Taste is bitter, roasty malts, and pine hops. The Palate is tingly and dry. This beer is medium bodied. In conclusion, this is a very quaffable beer with a lingering hoppy aftertaste and is worth trying.

finn1918 (198) - Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Pours a deep red that appears black in the glass with a good 3 fingers of light tan head. Aroma is somewhat weak for the style, but typical roast and piney, soapy hops. Taste is weak for the style, but sweet and very drinkable. Moderate bitterness on the finish. Palate is somewhat foamy and light; a little too carbonated and could stand to be thicker. Overall, this is an okay black IPA at a reasonable price, but there are better examples of the style out there.
