hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Rated on 6-12-2013 @ 800 Degree Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small ivory head that has good retention, transparent body, one ring of lacing, minimal carbonation that is fast rising, and a golden hue. The Aromas are malt, citrus hops, sweet, fruity, coriander, and spicy. The Taste is bitter, malty, coriander, and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied IPA. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, very hoppy tasting so this is what I term a "hophead" beer for those that enjoy drinking hoppy tasting beers.

Draft. Orange, melon, earthy malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet orange malt and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Nice, easy drinking beer.

jgb9348 (5472) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Slightly hazy copper and amber coloured body with a nice bronze glow and a thin one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright hops, fairly light though, with some malt, caramel, toffee and a hint of metal. Light-bodied; Nice flavourful hops with a good herbal and dry, airy kick and some very light malt notes throughout with hints of caramel and sweetness at the end. Aftertaste fairly simplistic with a bit of the dry herbal hops showing through, and some good malt notes, while light, add a good balance. Overall, a fairly good light IPA with a nice flavour profile which makes for an easy drinking in the summertime! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$4.31 sampled at home in Washington after just flying back from Detroit a few hours ago, on 04-August-2013.

emacgee (4567) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours a clean tawny amber with a finger or two of off white head. Serious particle haze develops quickly. Nose shows caramel malts and muddled hops. Flavor is meh. Grassy and a touch papery on hops in the flavor. Light sweetness with a papery/citrusy pithy hop bitterness. Mess of a beer.

Bomber: Hazed copper with a frothy tan head. Pine, orange-peel aroma. Taste is malty, initially sweet, then a steady herbal/grassy bitter... Tea, caramel... Very mild....plain, but pleasant.

Gachupines (1215) - USA - JUL 22, 2013
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is light citrus hops. Flavor is bright hops with a tiny but of malt and a slight nutty finish. Very clean, but could be a little sharper. It’s a pleasant sessionable IPA, but not overly memorable. Wife:3.6

Freaky_tiki (977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours deep orange with a one finger bubbly cap that burns into a slow fade. Cant tell if the label on the bottle is whimsical or cheese. First scents are fresh citrus. This is a malty IPA. Very enjoyable. Yet another interesting brew from another Michigan microbrewery purchased during deep blues & rockabilly road trip. Curious now about other new holland offerings.
