3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2005 A nice, hopped up flavor. This poured out with a generous white head, a little foggy, and quite bubbly. There was a lemony aftertaste that sat quite well in the mouth. Over all, it’s a satisfying drink.

Tasted in the same sitting at New Holland’s pub with the Sundog. This guy had the expected good head, slightly citrus hops, and a little fruit flavor. Not a lot of malt distinction. I could still find it interesting.

Cascade hops nose, but little other than plain, nearly tastless pale malt to back it up. Balanced and clean with light body. Great hoppy finish.

Hazy amber, small white head. Grapefruity and citrousy ho aroma. Flowery and fruity flavour, grapefruit and lemon. Nice bitter finish. Refreshing and tasty example of the style.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy amber, average head. Grapefruit aroma. Surprisingly soft and very hoppy - loads of Cascade here. Dryish and very drinkable with lasting intensely bitter finish. One-dimensional (which can be said about all beers in the style), but tasty and thirst quenching.

First New Holland. Tons of head out of bottle. One can never have too much head. Head is lasting a very long time. Which can be a good thing. Very smooth and hoppy, malty lemony flavor. Very good beer, terrific with my pizza. As I said Tons of head is a very very good thing:)

A good APA...I’m really starting to like these Michigan beers. Gold color with good head retention and lacing. Taste is like most other APA’s with the exception that this one actually offers some interesting malt balance. Body is nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dreggy goldish yellow color, small foamy off-white head, great lacing in strings all over the place. Aroma has a plentiful amount of clean citrusy hops with a light play of pineyness, biscuity malt backing. Flavors are good, nice hoppy citrusy balance with a smooth bready malt, submissive sweeter tones, bitterness is moderately controlled, smidges of grassy and pineyness continue to add a bit to the hop profile towards the finish and some residual sweetness and resin hop lingers. Feel is clean, smooth and crisp, close to medium body. Quite drinkable, slides down with ease, due to the easy going balance and overall character. A solid APA, one worth keeping around.
