Amber appearance with little head. Not an overwhelming aroma, but has hints of floral and grass smells. Tastes of resin and grains.

On tap and snifter served? at Lunar Brewing Co.. Showed a bright & clear, copper color, with frothy, off white/light cream toned head foam, and very clingy, curtainy lacing. The nose was fresh grapefruit, some malt sweetness, and a hint of dank graininess. The flavor presented some smooth malt, moderate, lingering hop bitterness that was not overly assertive, a little less than medium body, fair carbonation, and a finish that was somewhat dry. A decent IPA, but a little pricey for what I wouldnt consider a snifter worthy brew.

12oz bottle from Tiffany's, Kalamazoo MI. Clear dark amber pour with inch of cream colored head. Sour hop scent, like a hoppy pale ale, citrus but mostly pine. Wheaty aroma too. Mouth feel is fairly light and a bit watery. May be high on the malt. Taste is all simple pine bitterness. Finish is less strong and bitter too. Not really that great and a disappointment to the harvest style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour to shaker. Nicely played wet-hop freshness in the aroma and in the taste.

Bottle from appalachian vintner. Pours brown with a 1/4 inch of khaki foam. Not much on the nose. Lots of malt on the nose. Kept waiting for the hoppiness you expect from the style but it never arrived.

Hmm... as I opened this an Eminem song popped up on Pandora and the previous rater of this beer got it from a user named Slim Shady. Coincidence? Absolutely. 12 ounce bottle from Sams Quik Stop. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big toasty and caramel malts with peppery and herbal hops. The taste is bitter green and resiny hops with caramel malts. Some honey and toastiness as well. Medium bodied. Theres no best by date on the bottle, so Im hoping it was old when I bought it. Its good, but falls short on the wet hop promise. And Im used to New Holland falling short.

Compliments of Slim Shady. From bottle to tulip. Hazy amber color. Refreshing citrusy with mild hoppy bitterness. Not bad.

Floral, cirtrus, and mild grass aroma. Golden amber, with off-white heade and decent lacing. Floral, caramel, mild biscuit and citrus flavours. Full bodied, balanced, and medium bitter finish.

Very disappointing. I was hoping for a big fresh hop aroma and got really nothing. Hardly any aroma at all. Musty cellar with stale bread. The flavor was a bit better with a malty beginning but the hops never quite made it through. A little watery and bland. Looks nice though.
