A: Ice tea coloring, misty haze with a full volume display of effervesce. Buff-pale yellowish tint on a scant, whispy quick to dissipate head that is stingy on the lacing.

S: Lemony-lime and citrus, fresh and wet delivery, perfumy.

T: Fresh wet lemony flavor of hops and pale grains. Touches of toasted sweetness, grapefruit with a spicy sweet bite on the finish. Light dry toastedness fade.

M: Mouthful is fairly crisp, luscious malting nice depth to body.

O: Overall a full bodied pale, good rate of carbonation and nice level of fresh hoppiness. Tasty, toasty, hoppy. With a name like paleooza (obviously refering to style) would it hurt if it were a bit more pale based? Dont get me wrong, nice use of speciality grains, fresh and toasty, not at all overdone like many try to do with a pale but....

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: A darker, tarnished amber color, dense foamy off-white head, moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is bready malt dominant with a bit of hop, grass, herbs (not much pine or citrus).

T: Follows the smell, but very solid malt backbone - almost an English style. starts with a smooth bready malt, and sweeter tones, light bitterness, and more of grassy than pineyness in the finish. A nice clean finish. A pleasant nuttiness is at play, too.

M: Feel is well weighted, and clean, refreshing, smooth and crisp, with a very nice creaminess and close to medium body. Nice finish.

Unusual APA, more English, more malty. Very well crafted. Not that memorable, but a great food beer.

Snagged a single of this for 3 bucks at the house of 1,000 beers. Into a pint glass.

A - Quite a dark pale ale, somewhat hazy with tiny floaties of sediment. Head is minimal with just a layer of foam that settles to a light ring.
S - Smell is rather sweet with pale malts, earthy hops, and a touch of grain.
T - Somewhat hash grainy tones mixed with bitter earthy hops. Even though its old it does stick to the palate for a while each sip. Not bad just average.
M - Light to medium. Not bad for an aged pale.

Overall it's a pity I couldn't try this fresh because it may have been slightly better for what its worth its a very hoppy bitter earthy and aggressive IPA which needs a bit more balance with malt sweetness,

Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hops, slight earthy malt, hint of sugar, hint of grass, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, earthy malt, hops, pine, slight grass, and slight sugar. Overall, decent appearance and feel, but weak body, blend, and aroma. The exaggerated sugariness is unfavorable.

Picked this up at Gary's in Wayne last week. I hadn't had anything from New Holland in quite a while and I figured this would be a welcome alternative to the West Coast APA's that I'm accustomed to. This wasn't that much different than them and I'm glad that there were only 4 of these in the pack, as this was a beer that didn't warrant anything bigger in terms of packaging.

The pour to this was typical - a light almond hue, somewhat decent head, and nearly no lacing to be seen. Lots of grapefruit and cascade hops in the nose with just as much in the taste, if not more. The bitterness was astringent, but not warming, and there wasn't any hop burn to last in between sips as well. While not a bad beer, there wasn't much of anything memorable to hold onto here and the carbonation wasn't enough to scrub my palate clean during my session. This was a very basic Pale Ale that needed more flavors and oomph to it.

At least the alcohol was somewhat light and if I wanted to have another one in a sitting, that wouldn't be a difficult thing to do. With so many of these on the shelf, I thought that this would have stood out a bit more. It's only worth a go if you can't get enough of these beers, but be forewarned - one of these at a time is just about enough for anyone.
