COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michigan grown hops are the story in this seasonal harvest ale. Hopivore is wet-hopped with hops added to the brew just hours after harvest, creating rare, fresh flavors.

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours murky brown with an off-white head. Smells kinda malty, kinda hoppy. Taste is bitter with a pleasant malt backbone. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, New Holland Hopivore finishes with a mild spruce bitterness.

Chudwick (1782) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Draft - pours pale amber with white head and great lacing. Nose is pine, paint thinner and resin. Grapefruit. Light with an unpleasant aftertaste. Not that hoppy for 55 IBUs. Weak.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Draft. Cloudy deep amber color, medium white head. Aroma of damp and earthy hops. Taste is bitter and watery.

The Hopivore pours a deep amber orange with a tan head that fizzles out somewhat quickly but leaves fair lacing. The aroma is caramel, molasses and floral hops. The flavor is caramel and molasses up front but the floral hops quickly take over and leave a bitter flavor well into the aftertaste. I love a good IPA but the bitterness is a bit much in the aftertaste. Overall this is a decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bold bitterness upfront without lingering flavor. Bready. It’s ok but not worth $10/4-pk.

Cmj4979 (7) - - NOV 18, 2013 does not count
Smells good, looks nice, be the taste is lacking. Some kind of weird caramel stale hop taste. Almost smells on the verge of a scotch, but is just not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpongeRuiner (561) - Michigan, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Smells like dank cheap weed. Seems like it has potential to be a nice IPA then just doesn’t make it. Pretty much what I expected from the brewery.

Meh. This was a very blah beer. Not much going on at all. Could do without trying this one again.
