COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is insanely dry hopped with Centennial Hops. This pale copper colored ale has a flowery hop aroma and a bold hop bitterness. Hop Heads Only Please!

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2004
Amber color, slightly cloudy with good head formation and retention. Great Brussels lace. Both the aroma and bittering hops left too vague an impression for my taste. There is a citrus note in the flavor rather like that of ginger ale. Lacks substance.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2007 Hazy orange color with a big lasting beige head and a fair amount of lacing. Aroma of pine and floral hops. Flavor of mostly hops and grapefruit. Long bitter finish. Pretty good.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2004
Poured a dark orange color with a decent sized white head. The aroma and taste of the hops was good, but the finish needed a little work. Still very good though.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2004
Copper amber color with white head & lacing. The aroma is brightly hopped with grapefruit, lotion & other citrus fruit. The flavor is moderately bitter & has a good balance of malty sweetness. Some spice and well rounded dry refreshing finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2004
Hazy amber with a foamy head and lacing. Very nice hop profile, backed with nice malts. Liking the hops in the flavors. The malts blend in rather well. Citrus is nice and upfront with lemon and grapefruit. Very nice IPA.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Pours amber with a nice creamy head. Aromas of light malt, heavy hops, lemon, and very piney/resiny. The odor reminds me of Dogfish 90 minute IPA. Finishes very hoppy, with a smooth, resiny, piney, slightly citrus burst at the finish. An ass- kicking IPA.

steview (1030) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 10, 2004
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 toasty, hoppy aroma. dry, piney, lemon citrus flavor. lots of hops. pleasant bitterness. reminds me of sierra nevada pale ale. a little watered down in the finish. UPDATE 1/12/05: doughy malt backbone that’s still a bit thin--perhaps stale? nice citrus hop though. still good! downrated, though. UPDATE 4/7/05: no rating change, but i wanted to note that i just had a hazed and infused by rockies brewing and this beer reminds me of it.

4/9/04: Bottle.
Heavy, piney hop aroma with a tinge of grapefruit. Orange-brown body with a slightly dirty-white colored head. Lacing. Plenty of hops to taste. Pine tree with a bit of lemon. Long bitter finish.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2004
On tap. Light orange colored with little head. Strong citrus hop aroma. Flavor is crisp with a lasting bitterness. Weak malt and hop flavor profile. Thin palate is a little disappointing. A good American IPA.

jables (101) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2004
**Sampled at Piccadilly Beverage Shops with Zach in Champaign** poured a really light pale gold. The smell was crisp with some floral hops. Flavor is like a pale ale taken down a notch as opposed to up on a notch on the hop scale like an IPA should be. The hops are nowhere in the neighborhood of good IPAs like Bell's Two Heart, Dreadnaught, or Avery IPA. The mouthfeel is thin and uneventful. The drinkability is high because while it is not too hoppy it is also not offensive. I think it should also be noted that this brew does not live up to the hype printed on its own packaging, it appears New Holland is very, very proud of themselves.
