sedimented throughout, must have been one heckuva dry hopping. Aggressively carbonated golden orange body, sticky off white head. nose id wholly hops: piney, minty, floral and a hint of perfume. piney and biting front yields to a bready, toasty malt profile. hoppiness lingers on the roof of the mouth, sticky and flavorful, you’ve got plenty of opportunity to taste this beer.

On Tap: Lasting white head w/ a medium light amber body. Perfumey alcohol w/ piney & lemony citrus hops. Medium fruitiness and light toasted malt. Bitter and resiny. Fruity(citrus & lemon) hops, light toasty malt, dry bitter finish w/a citrusy hop flavored aftertaste. Fairly 2 dimensional flavor. Medium carbonation, dry/astringent m/f, lighter medium body. Disappointing IMHO. Seems lifeless in the malt balance department.

Dark orange with a small head. Fresh citrus aroma with lots of hops. Taste is very spicy with some grapefruit. Long, dry finish but still very refreshing.

rudolf (2353) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Piney, sweet cotton candy, sweet malt. Citrusy up front. Apple, tingly.. Yummy yummy hops.

cathcacr (646) - Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bears beer-snob scrutiny. Sharp hop nose, but milder flavor and mouthfeel. Lingering foam top is lovely. Mild finish. A little dry. Two yums up.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2004
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 (3853) - 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 (851) - 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.

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.
