3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I was born in Western Michigan, so I really want to like the brews from New Holland. Unfortunately, most of the beers are very middling. This bours a barely hazy brown shade of amber with white head. Scent is almost nonexistent. Taste is a nondescript bland bitter. Palate is decent, but that cannot be any beers saving grace. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Draft at Khyber Pass. Tulip. Slightly hazy orange amber pour. Long lasting frothy off-white head. Full and juicy. Slight Brett funk but nothing major. Tangerines. Thyme. Little sweet up front but finishes dry.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of bitter and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Bomber. Pours a light amber color. Thin white head leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is a bit of funky yeast and floral hops. Taste is same with some malt and faint lemon citrus. Pretty good, but not their greatest.

Tasted from a 22oz. bomber. it poured a cloudy amber with a thick, frothy, lasting head, and lively carbonation. Bright hop aroma and a bitter, yeasty hop taste. Definitely off the beaten IPA path.

Had it from a 22oz bomber, poured a hazy shade of orange, with a cappuccino like foamy head, and a sweet aroma. The taste is hop front and a funk aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange gold pour with a slight haze and a massive long lasting white head. Sweet funky citrus gets your attention as you pour. First taste is citrus funk followed by a little hop bitterness and finishes with sour. Finish is the only part that was not to my liking.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle into tulip.
Aroma: Nose is floral with a citrus scent. Hard to describe some of the ’sour?’ aroma. very wild, some brettanomyces.
Appearance: Cloudy bright orange with rocky off-white head that remains until the last sip leaving laces on the glass.
Taste: On the bitter side, slightly sour.
Palate: Light bodied and very fizzy! Long bitter finish.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer as it is very unique and refreshing. Thinking about cellaring a bottle for a year and seeing how it changes. The only problem I had with this beer was when I opened the bottle it foamed over and got all over my table!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from 2012 courtesy of agl108. A murky rust pour with tons of chunky floaties and a massive meringue-like head that leaves plenty of lacing behind. The aroma is funky and sour, almost to the point that I suspect it may be infected. Kumquats, zesty citrus rinds, lemon juice, wheat, and yeast feature in the aroma. Thin to medium-bodied on the way down. Caramel and a sweet cereal graininess upfront taste-wise. Some juicy citrus flavors and zesty rinds at the bitter/dry end. Yeasty. Mineral water-like. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus. Flavor is hops with an even stronger citrus oil flavor which becomes more apparent as it warms. Finish leaves a little bitter astringency on the back of the tongue. Pretty interesting.
