COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Sammy (8358) - 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.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 14, 2009
22 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear reddish amber color with a medium head. Decent head retention and lacing. Nice floral hop aroma with citrus and berry notes. Taste is very fruity with citrus, plum and berry notes as well as bitter resiny notes throughout. Medium-full bodied. Two consecutive New Holland beers that didn’t disappoint... I’m shocked!

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a hazed golden body and a small white head. Aroma of pine, tangerine and orange. Taste is pine, caramel and orange. Alcohol is well hidden, and I didn’t realize this was an IIPA when drinking it, so it has a decent amount of drinkability on that part. Light carbonation.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Sample at the 2nd Annual Olde Worthington Beer Festival on 7/10/2010. This beer is a clear amber color with a thin off-white soap-sudsy head that evaporates steadily. Stringy lacing. Citrusy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with flavors of citrus, piney hops and sweet malt. The finish is hoppy with a malty base that lingers awhile. Decent beer all around.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Pours a transparent orange amber with a thin, wispy lacing white head. Aroma of sweet toasty caramel malts and a hint of light fruity notes with a good fresh grapefruity hoppy nose. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with plenty of caramel malty sweetness and a good hop balance before a bittersweet slightly drier finish. A pretty good malt-heavy IIPA.

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2008
On tap at GTMW. Poured clear, rich caramel with a short cap of beige head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit and spicy black peppery notes upfront, which formed an interesting contrast.. pale malts and grapefruit deeper down, with detectable alcohol warmth.. quite nice. The flavor had juicy grapefruit and pineapple throughout with black peppery alcohol and cloves surrounding.. warmer finish with a thick, sweet impression. Warm on the palate and heavier-bodied with OK balance.. the strength threw it off a little.

crossovert (6934) - Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2011
On tap, a bit watery for a DIPA, it didn’t have that succulent bitter mouthfeel, it wasn’t super sweet but neither the malt nor the hops stood out really.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours clear copper with thin off white head. The aroma has pine and resiny hops to go along with some spicy hops and slick sweet maltiness. The taste is much the same with thick hoppiness I love to sink my teeth into going from pine, resiny sap and grassiness to spicy hops that all run straight into smooth slick malt sweetened hop flavor. Wow, solid IIPA.

On tap at New Holland on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear orange with a thin beige head. Citrus and malt, faint alcohol. Nice juicy malt and hops, earthy. Long bitter grapefruit and quinine on the finish. Well balanced.
