I left the Pacific Northwest knowing that I'd be leaving behind many great IPAs. I headed to the Midwest hoping I'd find many more. So far I've tasted Founders All Day IPA and swooned. Best session IPA I've tasted!

And now to try New Holland's offering. I used to do open mic nights at their brewpub many moons ago (before I could appreciate beer, no less!). Finding a six-pack of this at World Market (plus 20% off!) was enough to get me try this out. I have enjoyed each beer more than the last. Have to say, this is considered by my picky IPA taste buds to be one of the best, hands down.

Good work, New Holland! Keep 'em coming!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange to amber color with a large off-white head. The aroma is hops, citrus and malt. The taste is a very nice citrus and malt blend.
