Hoppiness. Good. Aroma very IPAish. Drank from a bottle so no comment on color. Flavor good but not too deep. Hop bitter due to the reaction of friends who prefer to worship at the altar of ALB (American Light Beers). All in all, this beer was a satsifying IPA. Not the best I have had but solid.

Bottle. Pours an orangey amber with a nice, short lasting head. Scents of hops and malts. Some sweetness and not a whole lot of hoppiness. I thought this was somewhat boring, with not much going on. It was just a decent IPA, nothing special compared to all the delicious IPAs out there. A gift from Beervana.

Deep red pour with great lacing and spritzy carbonation. Lots of rose petal and tangerine in the nose. The body seems out of whack - with an initial sour, bitterness that is almost overwhelming. The bitterness is followed by creamy diacetyl that is enjoyable, but for only a little while. This becomes real buttery in the finish and is almost undrinkable. Need to try again.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Pours a hazy copper/brown color w/ a nice white head and some good lacing. Smells of grass and citrus hop with some nice carmel malt backbone. Palate has a fairly avg coating and some nice light oily sence. Flavor is great, I can drink a ton of this, almsot like a session. Lots of carmel balanced against a nice citrus and light grass hop. A very sweet IPA as far as IPAs go. Good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2006 (02.05.06) 12 oz bottle purchased from DiCarlos, Mundelein, IL. Clear dark orange hued beer having a small white head. Soft carbonation. Sweet malt and hop aromas. Medium bodied that starts with light malt sweetness and light hop/citrus (grapefruit) flavors. Hop bitterness intensifies in the middle. Finishes with tongue-scrubbing medium hop bitterness intensity. A very bitter beer, particularly towards the finish. Could use a firmer malt foundation to support the hop bitterness. This is, however, a good drinkable bitter ale. The oak-aged version is tastier.

Copperish orange in color with a white head. The noise was very hoppy. Nice rich taste for an IPA. I have never been a fan of IPAs but this one was very good. I wish I could get more new holland brews but I live in South Dakota

Nice reddish orange color and typical hoppy IPA aroma and flavor but its not overly hoppy like many IPAs are these days. Very enjoyable.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a hazy dark golden-orange with a large lasting foamy white head. Nice lacing. Very pleasant hoppy aroma and flavour with just enough malt to give it a nice balance. These Centennial hops are beginning to be a favourite of mine. Its not as hoppy as they warn but its still a very good IPA.

Copper colored and somewhat hazy with a medium sized white head. Aroma is both hoppy and toasty. Flavor has good hop bitterness, and is pretty well balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth with some carbonation. Overall a pretty good IPA, but not among my favorites.

Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, my bottle, courtesy of my friend Dave B. Poured hazy deep orange, plentiful tiny bubble columns, creamy-foamy off-white lasting head, great lacing. Aroma strongly of sharp evergreen hops, sweet citrus hops, light malt backbone and a hint of lactose - very nice. Taste of citrus and resin hops mostly balanced by mild malt, a long pleasantly bitter finish. Mouthfeel dry, astringent and lively - overall a very drinkable high-IBU brew
