COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Michigan Hatter celebrates our local agriculture with its Michigan-grown Cascade hops from the Leelanau Penninsula. Bright and aromatic, with delicious malt notes underneath a citrusy showcase of hops. Pairings: sharp cheddars, herb-roasted poultry and curry.

emacgee (4010) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Pours a clean tawny amber with a finger or two of off white head. Serious particle haze develops quickly. Nose shows caramel malts and muddled hops. Flavor is meh. Grassy and a touch papery on hops in the flavor. Light sweetness with a papery/citrusy pithy hop bitterness. Mess of a beer.

Patrickctenchi (3606) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bomber: Hazed copper with a frothy tan head. Pine, orange-peel aroma. Taste is malty, initially sweet, then a steady herbal/grassy bitter... Tea, caramel... Very mild....plain, but pleasant.

Bottle. Pours red with solid head. Very malty aroma. Taste is sweet bread and slight bitter hop. Definetly not an IPA

Mild citrus aroma... similar taste... maybe a little light, but one you could have a few of!

Gachupines (888) - USA - JUL 22, 2013
Clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is light citrus hops. Flavor is bright hops with a tiny but of malt and a slight nutty finish. Very clean, but could be a little sharper. It’s a pleasant sessionable IPA, but not overly memorable. Wife:3.6

Freaky_tiki (530) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours deep orange with a one finger bubbly cap that burns into a slow fade. Cant tell if the label on the bottle is whimsical or cheese. First scents are fresh citrus. This is a malty IPA. Very enjoyable. Yet another interesting brew from another Michigan microbrewery purchased during deep blues & rockabilly road trip. Curious now about other new holland offerings.

RABinCO (1274) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark amber. Slight white head and spotty white lacing. Grassy, citrus aroma. Taste is cereal, bread, light bitterness. Overly malty. Meh.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours out an odd dark reddish/brown color with a small white head, this is a nice looking beer, but not typical IPA look. Aroma is way too much bready, doughy, caramel malts with an odd dirt/fresh cut grass hop mix and maybe some old citrus fruits. Taste is watery, herbal tea, bread, caramel, mild grass, spicy hops, some lingering herbal bitterness.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
22oz bomber from Canal’s Fire Road EHT. Poured far darker than most IPAs. Clear yet slightly watery rusty amber body with a foam bubble white head. Aroma is earthy, dirty hops, older citrus fruits and a touch of chocolate. Thinner body with average carbonation and chalky finish, light carbonation. Flavor of chocolate, rotting oranges, earthy. Not bad nut the more I sip it the less I like it.

Cybercat (3282) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a clear, dark, brownish amber, almost mahogany, with a thick and rather persistent light tan head. Aroma is not particularly strong but has hoppy and fruity components. Decidedly hoppy flavor is mainly woody with a subtle citrus and apple undertone. Texture, though fizzy, lacks firmness. If not a great IPA, certainly worth a fair shake.
