Orange color with yeasty hoppy aroma. Sweet citrus flavor with decent hops.Could use a little more. Finishes with a nice bitterness that lingers.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2004
Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Orangey colour, steady cottony head. Firm, steady, flowery nose. Lively mouthfeel, maybe a little too much of carbon dioxide. Long, salty finish. Unbalanced. Hopmonster. Not bad.

sfontain (770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Lovely orange/red with a small head; lots of floating yeasty beasties. Citrusy, grassy aroma. Flavor is, quite simply, hops. Mouthfeel clean and chewy. This would be excellent except for the absolutely absurdly ridiculous levels of hops.

rlgk (9387) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Hoppy flavor with citrus. Flavor is hops, hops and hops. Good, but not as good as for example Smuttynose IPA.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is gold with a hint of red. The medium-thick foam is white. The smell is first sweet, then, an aggressive herd of hops attacks my nose. When I recovered, I could also trace the smell of sour yeast. But mostly hops, yes. I taste like… Tulips! There are lots (no, really. Lots!) of strong hops in the palette, some sweetness and touches of fruits, Seville oranges some elder flowers. The aftertaste is long lasting with a nice bitter tone, but also some citrus and honey. This might be one of the most hops-infused brews that I have ever tasted. But the craftsmen at New Holland Brewery succeeded in avoiding it to be just another all-hops-experience. Great stuff.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Very clear golden orange color with an average tan head. A very plesant bitter aroma with grapefruit, pine, and a slight floral hop presence. Some mild ballencing malt aroma underneath. Great bitterness from the start. It’s has a sweet hoppiness at first that then turns into a sharpy spicey bitterness. Finishes quite bitter on the toung.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2004
Bottled. Hazy orange colour, large head. Rich sweet grapefruit, hay and melon aroma. Sweetish and clean. Less bitter than expected after the hoppy nose.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2004
(sampled bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival) Clear amber, small white head. Surprisngly soft hop aroma of grapefruit, orange peels and herbs. Soft grapefruity flavour, hints of herbs, lemon and erath. Mellow grapefruity hops with hints of wood in the finish.

invalid (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Clear golden amberish with a very large everlasting white head. Smells of hops and carbonation (very gassy). Hoppy flavor that tastes more earthy than citrus. A bit too carbonated for my liking.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Golden amber with no head. Very piney centennial aroma with no malt to balance it out. Overwhelming hoppy with nothing to counter these flavors such as malt.
