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.

Poured from a bottle with a hazy copper color and a decently foamy white head. Has an okay pine aroma. Taste begins with a sweet citrus flavor before turning into a dry pine flavor towards the end. There is a light amount of hops for an imperial IPA, and even the flavor is lighter than I’d expect. This is a decent beer overall, but not a great imperial IPA. I prefer New Holland’s Mad Hatter to this.

yes theres hops citrus and floral mostly but a malty back is also in the aroma and a funky yeastiness too..looks like it should a cloudy orange amber with creamy foam head..tastes like it smells well balanced between its 3 characteristics,bitterness,sweet malts and bready yeast not a hop bomb like it says dry lingering finish full bodied creamy texture..overall a quality ipa alcohol well hidden but not a favorite too nondescript

Pours a deep cloudy amber with thin head which settles quickly. Aroma is floral piney hops, honey, sweet malt. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, honey surrounded by piney hops that linger in the bitter finish. Nicely balanced but raw. Tasty IIPA

New Holland calling this a "bitter symphony" is an understatement of marketing. The bitterness is especially huge on the dry finish. The body is so grainy that you’ll swear you’re chewing it. Very attractive to look at and has a distinctive pine-tree aroma. Certainly worth trying.

Great palate, aromatic but the hop nose doesn’t follow through as much as I expected in the mouth. No alcohol noticeable which is surprising at 9.4%.

Cloudy copper with a thick off white foam. Big hop aroma. Nice maltly flavor with even bitterness. Not too sweet. Hops are not overwhelming. Great beer.

Draught at Churchkey. Pours hazy, deep copper toned, aromas of citrus and resin hit you and draw you in. Wonderful floral, citrus, grapefruit juice, malt backbone, very deftly balances the heavy hops. Hides the alcohol very well, could easily drink several of these tooo quickly ! Enjoy.
