22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/14/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, grapefruit, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light pine, light bubblegum, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of orange zest, grapefruit, orange rind, lemon zest, pear, apple, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light bubblegum, light pine, and floral/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, clove, banana, pepper, caramel, floral, grass, light pine, bubblegum, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop, yeast ester, and malt flavors; with a great sweetness/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop, malt, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a caramel amber color. Nose is a nice farmhouse funk similar to Monkey King. Palate is a nice mix of funk and big Mad Hatter hops. Kinda hard to describe other than another delicious New Holland beer!

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Tap at Barcade: Hazy orange with a dense white head. Nice Belgian yeast aroma. Some bubblegum phenols and mild spice notes (coriander?) Silky body. Minerally and dry flavor. Dry biscuity malt back withsome coriander and white pepper. Soft bubble gum phenols throughout. Long dry minerally finish. A nice Belgian ale.

on draft and poured the same as the others a copperish orange color with white head. not sure about this one though as a Belgian ale. had a nice hoppy aroma and some malts. really didn’t get a lot of a Belgian or farmhouse effect. flavor wise was a good beer and easy to drink. just not sure about the style

On tap. Little on the nose. Really great balance between IPA and Belgian. Bitter finish. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Happy Gnome. Clear golden pour with a white clingy head. Soft farmhouse funk, palate is a touch bland. Just okay.

EricTeusink (704) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 19, 2013
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.
