3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at 1808 American Bistro. Pours a dark orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, hops and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and pine. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with thin off-white head. Smells of dough, grain, and pale malt with very mild hop notes. Average on the palate. An underhopped, underwhelming example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had on tap in a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium amber with not much in the way of a head or lacing.
Aroma is quite fruity with some pine notes thrown in.
There is a bit of candy sweetness up front in the flavor with more citrus in there behind. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a slightly sticky mouthfeel and finish.
Overall, a pretty good beer but it comes up a bit short when compared to some other harvest ales out there. Not really one to seek out.

It poured a clear copper color with a small white head. The aroma was floral and fairly one dimensional. The taste was similar with a medium bitter finish and a small hoppy aftertaste. Not sure this is what I expected.

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.

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.
