3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours out an odd dark reddish/brown color with a small white head, this is a nice looking beer, but not typical IPA look. Aroma is way too much bready, doughy, caramel malts with an odd dirt/fresh cut grass hop mix and maybe some old citrus fruits. Taste is watery, herbal tea, bread, caramel, mild grass, spicy hops, some lingering herbal bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bomber from Canal’s Fire Road EHT. Poured far darker than most IPAs. Clear yet slightly watery rusty amber body with a foam bubble white head. Aroma is earthy, dirty hops, older citrus fruits and a touch of chocolate. Thinner body with average carbonation and chalky finish, light carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, rotting oranges, earthy. Not bad nut the more I sip it the less I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, dark, brownish amber, almost mahogany, with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is not particularly strong but has hoppy and fruity components. Decidedly hoppy flavor is mainly woody with a subtle citrus and apple undertone. Texture, though fizzy, lacks firmness. If not a great IPA, certainly worth a fair shake.
