3.13/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured into my Ayinger stemmed tulip glass a vividly clear cinnamon-hued copper color with a bulky, loose light beige head that settled at 1". Not really any visible uprising carbonation to note. Gorgeous smatterings of blotchy lacework all the way down.

Earthy, dusty piney hop bouquet that melds well with the sweet malt backbone. Kinda smells like a mulled cider, without the clove. I detect vanilla wafer cookies that have just been crushed with bare hands.

The hop bouquet I just enjoyed in the nose really gets lost in the malts when it comes to the taste department. Knowing this is a Pale Ale, it's not that disappointing. But, the hops are very much lost in the predominantly rustic, cardboard-like malty flavors.

Mouthfeel is just a shade to the right of thin with no real carbonation to speak of. The finish is weak and hardly noticable.

Drinkability is okay. There's nothing here to ruffle feathers.

Overall a lackluster wet hop pale ale that really fell short of my expectations. Looks and smells great, but that's where the story ends. I'm glad I only bought a single. This is just too thin and transparent for me to feel proud of. First the Imperial Mad Hatter, now this. I hope New Holland can produce a bottled hoppy superstar before long as I really enjoy their maltier offerings. Such a great brewpub and restaurant that I always visit when I'm in the area. Glad I tried it though.
