3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hoppy aroma. Initially there is a hoppy punch that carries some bitterness. Unfortunately, it fades to a rather thin finish that is a bit watery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle--clear, deep, copper color with a medium that is long lasting along with lacing. The aroma is no hop bomb, but it definately smells like wet hops. Good malt backbone on the taste with soft hops on the finish, medium bitterness. Good, but expensive. Brusin Ales, 2.75.

At the brewery, amber colored and small white head. Some nice earthy and hoppy aromas and very subtle in the taste. Clean and refreshing and pairs well with my poet Chili.

on tap at Busters on 28th, nice try New Holland just make more dragons milk, this is a weak attempt perhaps a Pale Ale, but don’t call it an IPA.. for being an APA its not half bad though, easy drinking and would be a decent break from the Oktoberfests.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I don’t remember liking this beer very much when I first tried it a couple years ago, but I have definitely enjoyed it this year.
The hop notes have an interesting subtle, earthiness to them that, together with the substantial malty backbone really make this a thick, complex beer. The slightly bittersweet and sour finish lasts quite some time.
Nose is especially notable-- really great earthy floral smells. I also like that they got such impressive, champagney carbonation in a meaty harvest ale.
Good beer (this time around)
