Very sparkly, sharp on the tongue, maybe a little tangy. I like the cool crispness in it. Big fluffy head.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2011
Another new Hatter from New Holland. This one was on tap at The Bridge. Pours a clear orange-amber with a small, creamy off-white head that leaves a smooth sheet of lace on the walls of the glass and top of the beer. Aroma of mild farmhouse funk, lemon, citrusy hops, sweet malts, and some soft, grainy, bready notes. Flavor follows along the same lines, with funk, citrus, and plenty of bread, along with some grassy bitterness. Medium-bodied, with mellow, soft carbonation and an earthy, bready mouthfeel. Dry finish. Pretty nice Belgian-style IPA, or whatever they want to call it. This worked for me.

auerbrau (3148) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 3, 2011
22oz Bottle. 2011. Thanks for sharing, Sean. Tamped down Belgian and grassy, metallic hop aroma. Smells pretty good. Flavors are a little more mangy and difficult to sop up. Thereís a distinct oxidized, metallic hop character to this. The Belgian flavors hold a phenolic sweetness that is good at times, kind of standoffish at others. This beer is having some agreement problems, the elements are fighting. Thereís good things beneath, but it needs to harmonize a little more for this to be particularly good.

BMan1113VR (7822) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a huge foamy white head over a hazed golden body. Aromas are floral, peppery, estery, phenol, apricot and sage. Flavors are equally floral and spicy. Bitter, grainy, apricot, grassy, hoppy. Stone fruit, lingering esters. Lively carbonation.

Atom (1281) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Bomber pours cloudy golden/orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral, citrus, Belgian spice. Taste is an almost creamy citrus, spice, with a bitter pine finish. Not liking the characteristics of most Belgians I found this beer really nice the spice was overpowering but really complimenting.

Mad hatter mixed with some Belgian yeast, it isnít too bad, but not mindblowing.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Grapefruit, rosehips, lemon meringue, candi and lime on the nose. Clear orange, enormous head, nice lacing. Grapefruit peel flavor, drier than expected. Lemongrass toward the end. Not nearly as complex as the aroma would have you believe. Another in a line of great American made BPAs.

brokensail (10608) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 13, 2011
A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a large white head. S: Very lemony with plenty of yeast to go along with it. A nice combination of citrus peels and a light floral hop note. Itís fairly bready with some other sweet malt notes such as a touch of cracker. A light spice, perhaps some apples. T: A bit more bread than on the aroma with some yeast and maybe toffee. There is a lot of citrus character, particularly lemon, with a mild grass note. Not much bitterness, but a lot of sweet fruity esters. M: A bit on the light side in body with a medium carbonation. O: Kind of funky for a Belgian IPA, but a lot going on and some nice flavors.

arminjewell (5996) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours hazy dark orange with big fluffy white head, very carbonated. Aroma has notes of nice pine, grass, resin, some nice fruity esters, spice, slight barnyard funk. Taste is nice and carbed but still smooth on the palate, with notes of pine and grass, slight fruity pear, lots of spice and funky notes, finishing very dry and pretty bitter. Tasty!
