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!

Whoa! This is a terrific beer. Sweet malt flavor. Tastes of pine and lemony citrus. Lingering bitterness. Looks awesome - amber and cloudy. Fantastic!

Pours a cloudy medium brown with an average head. Appearance, aroma, flavor awesome for an IPA.

I seem to be the fan of this one. The aroma has a distinct hoppiness. Color average for an IPA. Once the hops hit the pallet the jaw muscles tighten. Smooth and and crisp, the hops are balanced well with the ale background. If someone hasn’t caught on to an IPA ride this is the one to get it going. Not to be confused with an APA. Toe to toe with Bell’s Two Heart Ale.

Damn i canít believe i didnít rate this beer earlier. I am a big NHB fan and Mad Hatter is one of my farorits. It has a nice floral sent and great hoppy tast. Its bitter, of course, but the suddle floral hop taste is allowed to shine through. Love it.

A great example of what a good IPA should be. The floral scent mixes wonderously with the hopps to produce pure beer drinking utopia

A fantastic brew from New Holland. Very crisp, smooth brew with a powerful body that is sure to please your palate. Hophead or not, this brew will sure give you an experience you will not soon forget!

Poured a mildly hazy orange with almost bright white head on it with nice pine and citrus scent to it. The malts are hidden within the beer and I almost got no scent from them at all. A well-balanced beer with a great flavor. Itís too bad that they donít distribute near my house because I would be buying a lot more of this!

Sampled at the Peoria International Beer Festival. An execellent looking beer: cloudy copper, big head, excellent lacing. Aroma is very floral from the hops. An excellent hop flavor, made even better with the underlying malt presence. A truly great IPA.
