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.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2015 Tap: Hazy copper-ish, amber-ish body with a dark beige head, frothy & foamy atop the brew. Aroma contains light citric, leafy hops, mild hay & farm funk notes with a touch of damp cotton. Slightly grassy, lemon zest in the finish. Taste is very similar with more sharp orange, citrus, & pineapple zest out of the gate. Farmhouse character comes through with faint cotton & hay funk, slightly musty & damp. A touch of tartness near the finish, but far from sour. More grassy & leafy hops in the aftertaste. Like a mild, hopped up saison. Not bad.

On tap at the brewpub. Deep yellow with a white head and some lacing. Yeasty and spicey taste, some sourness. Yeasty aroma. Average mouthfeel. Drying. Fine for style, although I was not a big fan of it.

If nothing else, NH definitely got the name for this beer correct. It’s definitely a "Farmhouse IPA". Problem is, it’s not all that farmy, and, much like Mad Hatter, the IPA base isn’t all that good. Super carbonated and looks lovely in the glass. Bitter with a touch of tart. Lots of citrus and pine. Thin - I wish this beer was much bigger. Boozy smell is not great.

Orange-amber pour with with a tan head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Taste is a little sticky. It has a little dry aftertaste, little floral, a so-so beer/

(22oz bottle from jcnd9803). Pours a clear orange-copper color with massive off-white color and active carbonation. Aroma has citrus, resin, wood and belgian yeast. Taste is sweet with some resiny notes and belgian yeast. Medium bodied and oily. Ok. This is definitely not a favorite style of mine.

Bottle. Pours orange amber with a big foamy off-white head. Interesting aroma with grassy funky notes, some floral sweetness. Not a particularly funky or dry flavor, this one just didn’t pack a lot of punch for me.

This beer has started to warm up to me. its got a nice equal amount of bread malts and slight fruit, spicy hops. the beer is nice and smooth but definitely has a strong bite. perfect for the meal with lots of fresh foods.
