3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap and snifter served? at Lunar Brewing Co.. Showed a bright & clear, copper color, with frothy, off white/light cream toned head foam, and very clingy, curtainy lacing. The nose was fresh grapefruit, some malt sweetness, and a hint of dank graininess. The flavor presented some smooth malt, moderate, lingering hop bitterness that was not overly assertive, a little less than medium body, fair carbonation, and a finish that was somewhat dry. A decent IPA, but a little pricey for what I wouldn’t consider a snifter worthy brew.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Tiffany's, Kalamazoo MI. Clear dark amber pour with inch of cream colored head. Sour hop scent, like a hoppy pale ale, citrus but mostly pine. Wheaty aroma too. Mouth feel is fairly light and a bit watery. May be high on the malt. Taste is all simple pine bitterness. Finish is less strong and bitter too. Not really that great and a disappointment to the harvest style.

Bottle pour to shaker. Nicely played wet-hop freshness in the aroma and in the taste.

Bottle from appalachian vintner. Pours brown with a 1/4 inch of khaki foam. Not much on the nose. Lots of malt on the nose. Kept waiting for the hoppiness you expect from the style but it never arrived.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hmm... as I opened this an Eminem song popped up on Pandora and the previous rater of this beer got it from a user named Slim Shady. Coincidence? Absolutely. 12 ounce bottle from Sam’s Quik Stop. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big toasty and caramel malts with peppery and herbal hops. The taste is bitter green and resiny hops with caramel malts. Some honey and toastiness as well. Medium bodied. There’s no best by date on the bottle, so I’m hoping it was old when I bought it. It’s good, but falls short on the wet hop promise. And I’m used to New Holland falling short.

Compliments of Slim Shady. From bottle to tulip. Hazy amber color. Refreshing citrusy with mild hoppy bitterness. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very disappointing. I was hoping for a big fresh hop aroma and got really nothing. Hardly any aroma at all. Musty cellar with stale bread. The flavor was a bit better with a malty beginning but the hops never quite made it through. A little watery and bland. Looks nice though.

This poured a lighter amber color with a white head. Aroma was stale dusty hops, some salty cabbage, and mild grain. Flavor was much the same, very astringent and bitter, but not on a hoppy way. Just off
