New Holland Existential Hopwine
New Holland Existential Hopwine from Mad Mex in Robinson. The beer pours an orange-tinted color with a thin white colored head. The aroma is sweet with lots of malts, yeast, banana, cherry, and yeast. The taste is also really sweet with caramel, toffee, and yeast at first before a large hop presence with a bitter grapefruit bite kicks the tongue. There is also some pepper spice and a marijuana taste as well. A cherry and biscuit undertone surfaces before an alcohol burn on the finish. The alcohol content is 10.5% ABV. This was a powerful and interesting beer, but very enjoyable. It had a variety of flavors, and marijuana was not a flavor I’m used to picking up in a beer.
