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.

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.

SPDickerman (1056) - Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2012
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.

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.

22 ounce bottle. 2014 vintage. Hazy Amber orange topped by a massive Rocky beige head. Perfumy tangerine nose is big and yeasty. Tangy bittersweet tangerine malt flavor. Notes of yeast, vanilla, hay and cosmic funk. Bitter citrus hops come through in mid taste. Nicely complex and textured. Dry citrus finish.
