12oz bottle purchased for $1.79. Hazy yellow, orange maybe. Aroma was this odd vegetal greenness, line celery. Flavor was slightly bitter, hops, then that weird flavor. Overall pretty average and I don't know how they are going to make it here in CO with so much competition on the shelves.

I have a tough time believing this brew is all Cascade. The nose reminds me of a lot of poor efforts from Goose Island and of Two Brothers Clark St. Ale House contract brew. You know that hops-gone-wrong smell? I guess you could describe it as sweetned bile. It leaves me longing for fruit and flowers.

On the palette, New Holland Paleooza just won't deliver. A little herbal, a little green, mostly this beer tastes like a light hop tea and washed out fast. The yeast dominates and offers a sort of styrofoam flavor that yields to a latent malt sweetness, but this beer is, overall, quite dry.

The mouthfeel is foamy, but smooth, and makes the beer taste stale. Cascades do eventually show up, far after the finish, lingering and redeeming this beer. Quaffable, I suppose, but probably the most uninteresting "flagship" craft beer I've had yet.

Relax, relax.

Appearance: Golden color, red hints. Small white head, no lacing.

Smell: Citrusy hops overwhelm your nose.

Taste: Very ehh... Sharp citrus hops than smooth out with sweet malt and makes for a pretty nice finish. Nothing too spectacular, but not bad.

Mouthfeel: light to medium good carbonation.

Drinkability: Pretty drinkable beer, drink a 6 easy.

Overall I wasn't that impressed. I would rather drink a multitude of other pales as opposed to this, but what do I know.

12oz bottle into a pint glass. There is some random code on the bottle but it means nothing to me in terms of a bottling date.

Pours a hazy dark copper with a quick half finger white head that is then gone. Just a few random splotches of lacing and head.

The aroma is fairly weak but I can pick out some light tropical fruit along with a touch of pear and peach. Can't really detect any malt at all.

The flavor has more fruit than the aroma but is still on the weak side. I feel this beer might have some age on it. Nice juiciness that is really leaving me yearning more a bit more. Turns into some pine closer to the finish. Just a touch of bread in the background. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a light mouthfeel.

Overall, I feel this could be a respectable APA when it is fresh but it falls off quickly. I need to try to find a fresher sample.

Yellow color beer, 1" off white head, the liquid has a good degree of clarity to it. The smell is lacking of dry hopping or hop character. If anything, its more herbal than hoppy.

The flavor is pretty much bland biscuit malt. Some cascade hops are used, sparingly. Gives off the faintest hint of citrus and bitterness. Tea like notes picked up. Carbonation was a little lazy. Not digging the herbal tea floral components of this one, just want hops and some malt please.

Mouthfeel was just same minor grapefruit notes, and grandma's tea. I liked a few of these guys beers, but this one just is as blase as pale ales get. Not bad, but not good.
