New Holland is one of those breweries that make beers that I like very consistently that I am constantly overlooking one way or the other. I have no idea how many times this has been available to me in the past but I am glad I finally picked up a four pack. It is not much to look at--just a golden amber color w/ a slight, soapy head--but the hop character is so nice that that hardly matters. While some IIPAs push into barleywine territory in terms of sweetness, this one stays nice, dry and drinkable in the west coast style and it suits the light, citrus and floral character quite well. It is perhaps medium bodied but the mouthfeel is lightened by moderately vigorous carb which prevents it from feeling any more than a little bit sticky. The finish is a bit astringent which a long w/ the lemon/floral hops provide something of an iced tea character and is rounded out by just a nice, balanced amount of earthy resinous bitterness. This is another good one from New Holland.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Ruby amber pour, warm orange highlights and topped with a creamy, one-finger, off-white head from the bomber courtesy of dkachur (thanks, Dan!): Nose of orange marinade, summery citrus (lemon) oils, honeydew, herbs, toffee, maple syrup, bran flakes, and buttered toast, all backed by solid caramel malts. Taste is similar, surprisingly spicy at that first second, but carefully blending into a smooth, thick resinous feel. Medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. A bit too syrupy sweet at times, but that can be overlooked. It’s an enjoyable brew. Drinkability: Bold notes, nothing hidden. Pairing: Beefsteak burger, lots of cajun garlic fries. Rebuy: Probably. #462 on 12062010, DG.

Pour is a tight creamy looking head that dissipates to a spotty film, not alot of carbonation somewhat flat. Aroma is sweet floral citrus and grapefruit. Taste is creamy sweet flowers and dry grapefruit orange finish. Palate is creamy again and a dry grit finish.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2010
22 oz bottle from Liquor Barrel. Cloudy, dark orange pour with a fluffy two finger head. Hoppy (citrus) aroma slightly malty. Flavor is very hoppy with some citrus notes and a malty backbone, pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy with a bitter finish.

Quevillon (2897) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2010
Drank on day 2 of the 2010 Mondial de la Bière. Beautiful red, small head. Aroma hops barley sugar, a bit of brown sugar. Really dry hops taste, not very tasty, dry aftertaste. What the hell was that?

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2010
Bottle at Mondiale 2010. Hop aromas, emminating from very golden coloured body with a white hjead and lace rings. You can see the carbonation bubbles. Good piney hops and creamy malts, hits the bullseye for the style. But you can detect the a.b.v. Bit above average mouthfeel.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 2, 2010
bottle - Pours amber-orange with a one finger head. It has a big grapefruit hop aroma with some underlying malt. The flavor is of big, crisp, grapefruit heavy hop bitterness with some caramel malt that supports it nicely. It’s full bodied and overall an excellent brew.
