j12601 (7456) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2010
On tap at New Holland on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear gold, a little watery looking, with a thin white head. Fuzzy hops, a bit of musk. Weird sweet plastic falvors, tingly odd flavors to it. Long bitter f inish, something off here, but I’m not sure what.

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.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 7, 2012
2012 bomber. Poured slightly hazy medium golden with a nice off-white head. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, white pepper, and cloves over a caramel and lesser biscuity base.. fresh and vibrant, and I enjoyed the Belgian yeasty twist. The flavor opened tart with peppery spices and nondescript bitterness.. mixed fruit and bready notes at the core.. the spicy yeast worked well with grapefruity hops at times, and just OK at other times. Medium-bodied and spicy on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. too many clashes to be great.

marcus (7301) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy orange copper with a modest beige head and a fruity barnyard aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with an earthy bitter finish. Nicely balanced and quite tasty.

drowland (6668) - Georgia, USA - JUN 13, 2011
6/13/11. 22oz bottle. Clear orange pour with a small tan head. Spicy, estery, yeasty aroma with a touch of hops. Spicy yeast dominates the flavor with lingering floral hops. Nice!

b3shine (6379) - Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bomber to pint. Looks okay, but doesn’t smell like an IPA. Overly doughy and Belgiany. Tastes the same way; the flavors fight each other. Mouthfeel is average (at best). Not again.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2012
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, huge pillowy sandy head, very sticky lacing.   Almost seems infected, but thinking its not.   Barnish nose, faint citrus and floral notes.   Not much hops, well at least in terms of an IPA.   Seems like a funky Belgian Pale.   Barnish and musty on the tongue, a touch tart, a little dry, soft citrus peel and earthy floral notes.   Hops are minor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Backside shows a bit more in the way of hop bitterness.   Soft mustiness and citrus rind lingers.   Fairly entertaining I must say, although not as bright as the nose suggested.   Thanks for the bottle Kevin!

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Sampler at the brewpub (Holland, MI). Missed this last time in town. Pours a crisp clean golden yellow, a decent whitish head that dies to a smaller film, clinging to the edges. Good lacing. Aromas are a bit fruity, some light esters and some citrus mix with bready malts, pretty light overall. Initial is medium bodied with a pretty big dose of Belgian yeast, apples and pears right off the bat moving into bread and a telltale Belgian yeasty spice. Vanilla, a touch of clove, orange peel and light florals provide a light bitterness. Sweet up front with lingering fruits, a touch of sweetness. Pretty fruity, restrained bitterness. Quite flavorful, not overly sweet as expected. Dry, a touch of honey, fruity esters, more orange and floral slanted hoppiness. Not bad

gyllenbock (5607) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle bought at Whole Foods Market - P Street (Washington DC) in October 2011. Amber with a medium, quite creamy head. The aroma was ok with lemon, some yeast, hops and perfume. The taste was not as good, the beer felt a bit old. Still drinkable.
