look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A clean amber pour with a finger of off white head, slow dissipation but not much lacing. Smells wonderful, a nice caramel malt aroma, nutty, bready, with floral notes and fresh cut grass from the hops. The flavor is a citrusy sweetness up front with a delicious malt backbone. Biscuity but with a hint of roasted fruits.
Medium body with a good amount of carbonation.
Overall this is a great fresh hop ale. On par with celebration as one of my favorite winter seasonals.

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

Poured with a dark copper to light brown this ale had a fizzy thin head but laced with a cottony foam.

The scent was for the most part weak with very little overall hop character. It was pleasant enough with some floral and pine but was absent of any real strength.

The flavor seemed to hold a hop bitterness with light floral notes. The hop taste is more prevalent to the malt but it is relatively subdued compared to the description.

The feel holds a nice smooth texture with very little astringency and a moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink this ale does not set itself apart from so many other in the style.

A - Pours a cloudy deep amber with a two-finger off white head. Nice head retention and a good amount of lacing.

S - Caramel malts with faint pine and citrus hops.

T - Sweet malts In the beginning followed by a piney bitter aftertaste. Bitterness lingers on the tongue.

M - Medium carbonation with a light watery mouthfeel. Finish is sticky and dry.

O - Just okay. I was expecting a little more hop punch. Probably will pass on it next year.

OK, just OK. Looks pretty good - a nice burnt orange color - and the scent is mildly citric, but besides that, a pretty unremarkable beer. I was excited to try this wet hop beer brewed with Michigan-grown hops, but disappointed to find a rather bland tasting beer - not only for the style but more generally. I don't know what the problem is - the hops, the brewing?. New Holland hasn't made a bad beer. I'd take this over a lot of beers, but I'll never pay for it again, and neither should you.

I find this to be a fine drinkable beer. I think the overall rating is a little low permy impression, but I can kinda see why. This might be rated higher as a pale ale, but who knows.

Pours amber, and I don't get much from the nose, maybe a little earthy.
The taste is dry and earthy combined with a sweet honey-malt in the beginning. The bitterness of lemon and grass bites into this later in the taste, but the sweet front tries to hold on. The bitter-sweet combo does lend to a slightly weird taste, which affects an otherwise slightly dry pull in the mouth.
