Can with no date.
Moderate pour yields a one inch white head over an amber body with some nice, sticky lacing. Nose of pine, citrus, and ever so slight tropical fruit. Taste mirrors nose with a dry finish of pine bitterness. Very nice feel and overall a great DIPA. Cheers!

Out of can, Jan 2018

Beautiful looking, old school DIPA. Lots of pungent hops, some citrus in the nose, balanced by malt while letting the resinous bitter flow through. Very well done. Would love to have on draft.

12 oz. Can

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice hazy dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice thick/creamy one-finger off-white head, which also leaves some pretty nice creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, with some maltyness, nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine, slight grapefruit), some pine. The taste is hoppy, malty, nice little citrus complex (orange, tangerine, slight grapefruit), some pineyness. Medium body, ABV hidden very nicely, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Hazy, copper colored, light tan head. Streak lacing. Aroma was up front in the tropical fruit hoppiness with citrus and herbal notes. Flavor is resinous and pine. Heavy NW style IPA is what it reminds me of, with a mix of the modern tropical mosaic hops blended together. Juicy and thick, biting and tangy. A bit of alcohol vapor in the finish. A very good beer overall.

Dank hoppiness, with a polite end. I recently tried out this Michigan brew and realized how much I had been missing. The 9% ABV is an appreciated touch of this double ipa. Feels more like a double IPA buzz with a single IPA flavor. Piney and citrus flavor incorporated into the hops.

Poured a typical pale golden color, nice hoppy smell/feel/taste for a DIPA. Not really "fresh", this one was bottled on 09/15/17. The citrus fruitiness, pinesque and slight malt backbone was enough to produce a pleasurable drinking experience! Well done New Holland!

With its strong mango orange, pine floral tongue piercing hop goodness this beer comes through. Love this beer and at its price point it's a better offering than many of similarity.

Pours a lightly hazy pale golden color with tangerine hints, head is nice and creamy looking big thumb sized off white that falls slow.

Aroma is subdued for a big IPA not quite super fresh but only three months old. Light citrus fruitiness with some pine needle backing malt underneath but not much there either. Nose isn't bag just not big enough for a double IPA.

Taste is well better then the nose nice citrus fruit notes along with sweeter mango , little cuties, and lingering pine bitterness. Flavors are good not quite I2PA knock your teeth out flavor and bitterness but damn sure better then the nose. Also alcohol at 9% is well hidden not an issue maybe 62 IBU isn't enough with the malt body at that percent ABV.

Mouthfeel is nice a solid medium with fairly mellow carbonation.

Overall think I would pass on this one unless I find it on draft or super fresh bottle. That being said isn't a bad beer just not at the level I believe a double IPA should be.
