22oz. Bought at Globe. "2014 Vintage". Although I get some off flavors that I am assuming are due to its age, for an IPA that is over a year old this beer still holds it's own and has a nice complexity to it.

Not hoppy enough to be considered an I.P.A. But does have great flavor. More of a porter than anything.

A full-on carbonation explosion settles into a thick and rocky tan head.

Rye, toasted grain and caramel to the nose.

Pine on the tongue followed by malts and dark fruits and not much more to write about except a slight bitterness at the end.

Medium-bodied and easy to drink.

So much left to be desired from my first New Holland brew.

Enjoyed from a 22 oz bottle in pint glass. This black IPA pours a beautiful dark brown with reddish tints, HUGE almost brown head and fantastic soapy lacing. Nose of dark chocolate, dark coffee, figs, grapefruit, citrus hops, orange zest, and caramel malts. Flavors are sweet malts to the sides and front with caramel and dark fruits, bittering hops, floral hops, and citrus hops to the rear of the taste with grapefruit, resinous bittering hops, and even more hops. Bitter hop aftertaste with mild sweetness. Smooth mouth feel offset by the bracing hops.
Nice.
