We’ve got a gusher! Spewed everywhere upon opening, the first indication that something wasn’t quite right. The aroma confirms it; this is an infected beer. Phenolics mixed with the beginnings of sourness, quite unpleasant. Mixed with the hops, it ends up smelling remarkably similar to the deodorizers used in a porta-potty. That pretty much sums up the beer, which is a shame.

Mega gusher, don’t expect that from New Holland. Active amber, mildly hazed with a large meringue like beige head. Aroma of wild yeast, grains, herbal hops, caramel, mild rye and some honey and perhaps woodsy and pined hops lurk way in the background. Flavor is certainly more wild than it should be with peppery yeast, grains, mild rye, caramel and some pine. I’m not sure that this was their intention. I have another bomber bought from the same store, I’m hoping that one isn’t infected as well.

Orange peel, pine, and caramel aroma. Clear amber, medium yellow head. Orange peel flavor. Good level of bitterness, medium body, good level of carbonation. very centered, lacks transitions and complexity. Solid everyday IPA.

502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - AUG 10, 2011
Bomber. Pretty hazy unattractive tangerine color with a dirty white head. Looks like a home brew. Aroma and flavor are medium piney hops, touch of citrus. Just faint rye on the flavor. Overall, pretty forgettable.

monkeychugg55 (966) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 Gushes a huge beige head with a cloudy copper body. Obviously infected with the huge brett present everywhere except the label. Loud brett aroma, with faint caramel, citrus, and bread. Starts out sweet with caramel malt, then lots of brett, and finishes dry just before a short blast of rye. I like how the characteristics of an American ipa are mixed with the soapy, yeasty insanity of brett. Medium body with foamy carbonation and a very dry finish that goes wonderfully with the hop bitterness. Having had two other versions of Hatters, I’m thinking this accidentally turned out better than it was supposed to. Brett Rye Hatter is pretty decent.

brokensail (13679) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 6, 2011
A: The pour is a cloudy orange color with a finger of off-white head. S: A nice citrus hop note up front along with some spicy rye malt with a nice bread note. Light grass and pine with some light fruitiness. Not the most fragrant of beers, though. T: Fairly bitter with a decent pine flavor. Some grass and citrus peel, with a nice enough grapefruit flavor. Not much in the way of fruits, though. A decent amount of malt in rye, toffee, and caramel. M: Medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Slightly disappointing. A decent hop flavor, but nothing that really impressed me.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2011
On tap at the Pourhouse. Hazy deep chestnut pour with tall, stiff and very ong asting stone head. Spicy aroma. Bitter hoppy bite up front followed by a little spice, roasted malt, butterscotch and molasses. Tart apple flavor weaves in and out. Full, round texture and a long but dry finish.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2011
2011 bottle. Spicy rye on the nose with caramel and hints of brett. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Spicy bitter with caramel malts, very dry with spicy funky brett notes. I don’t think the brett is supposed to be in there but it does work!

22oz bottle 8/4/11 ’11 Vintage (Binny’s Downers Grove)-44° in Lager Glass-Pours a hazy amber with a huge off white head. Aroma of rye, citrus, and hubba bubba chewing gum. Taste of rye, hops, malt, and grass. Big carbonation. This medium to full bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty. Nice job.
