3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle, pours out a gold copper color with whitish head and an average amount of bubbles. aroma of sourdough, spices, tart acid and a bit of earthy green hops. not overly funk, nor overly dry as i might have expected from something labeled "farmhouse" but it maintains enough IPA character that it doesn’t need to be purely wild. certainly a change of pace from the regular mad hatter IPA, but it’s an enjoyable one and would go nicely with shrimp or thanksgiving turkey.

Bomber: Aroma has got a nice hop texture, yeasty, orange, and a light spice note. Appearance is a cloudy orange with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is like a hoppy belgian ale, somewhat dry on the aftertaste. Medium to light mouthfeel. Overall, Decent stuff I would drink this one again. Cheers!

2012 bomber pours a clear orange with a big off-white head but practically no lacing. Smells like an IPA. Aroma is quite different: lemon, yeast, and white grapes. Tastes like a sour Belgian with a long dry finish Body is at best medium without too much carbonation. I’ve enjoyed some other New Holland "Hatters" in this series, but this is my least favorite so far. I probably will not try it again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden with a thin white head. Aroma is strong citrus. Flavor is hops with an even stronger citrus oil flavor which becomes more apparent as it warms. Finish leaves a little bitter astringency on the back of the tongue. Pretty interesting.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours orange with a tiny white ring. Smells funky and a bit like flowers. Taste is funky and mildly bitter. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Holland farmhouse Hatter finishes with some bitterness and a touch of funk.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light colored, well-carbonated. The yeast character in this is lovely, with more funk and berries than spice. Unfortunately the hop character is merely ok, slightly bitter, and not very smooth at that . It is well brewed and at it’s best is a light grassy/berry summer treat, but it just doesn’t go where the american hops can. I never new American hops could pair well with a Belgian yeast, though, until I tried Iron Hill Belgian IPA, Stone’s Cali-Belgique doesn’t do it for me either.
