Rye lends spiciness to the caramel-malt base, while creating a creamy texture. Dry-hopping contributes a fresh citrus finish. Pairings: blue cheese, blackened seafood, herb-roasted poultry.

Nice hoppy aroma hints of pine and citrus. Taste not too much pine flavor. Hints of cream smoke and citrus. One of the best rye beers I have tasted. Pours a nice amber gold mixture. Has a smooth finish. Would make a great pairing with sea food or steak.

The aroma is spicy with a yeast/citrus element similar to a bitter. The flavor is spicy grain from the rye along with strong elements of yeast and citrus. Very good ale, the spiciness works well with the citrus and yeast.

Bomber. Pours a deep orange-copper with a huge rocky cream colored head that leaves some clingy lace. Nose is piney, grapefruity hops, some peppery zest, a clean honey-caramel sweetness, some mango and pineapple, and a little toast. Taste is fairly sweet, but substantially bitter so you donít notice right away. As it warms, the flavors blend together and it becomes more balanced. Palate is bright and crisp with hop bitterness, a fuller side of medium bodied, lengthy tingly bitterness, and a dryness to the finish. This is really nice, very satisfying, yet easily drinkable. Really happy with this one, and nicely priced, too.

Pours a darker amber with a thick foamy white head, light carbonation. Hoppy smell with light citrus hints. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the flavor is a nice hoppy goodness and not at all overpowering. I find many ryes too strong, but this is quite delicious and drinkable.

Pours clear burnt umber orange with a medium off-white head. Smells of rye and caramel and hints of earthy hops. Taste is spicy, bitter, and a little fruity. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Holland Rye Hatter finishes spicy bitter and very refreshing.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2008
GTMW 2008: Bronze hued with a small but lasting frothy head, okay lacing. The aroma has notes of tropical fruits, rye bread, resiny and grassy hops, pale and crystal malt. The taste is a tour de force of rye snap combo with hop smack wrapped around a solid biscuity malt background. The interplay just rocks! Spicy and astringent finish. The mouth feel is very aggressive and biting. An outstanding refreshing beer, dangerously drinkable.

Top notch pine hop aroma,a terriffic dry hopping job to achieve this, you can detect a little spiceness there,this must be the rye,and just the faintest of caramel,lucious mouthwatering,just to enjoy the scent, flavor has that spicey zing of the rye,combined with the piney hops,to make a refreshing,zippy type of summery ale,some caramel base ,to prevent you from gulping it like a lager, a little lighter then something you would expect out of a bomber bottle, but fits right in with the regular IPA catagory. Exquisite lacing on the glass, if they could release this in a 4 pack for under 10 bucks ,this would be memorable

Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is reminiscent of rye bread and pine hops. Flavor is like a mild rye bread with resinous hop notes. Pleasantly bitter finish. Wife: 3.3

Cybercat (2990) - Georgia, USA - APR 16, 2014
Pours a clear, dark amber with a fairly thick and slightly yellowish buff head. Strong aroma is fruity and sweet, with an undertone of rye and a hint of hops. Tasty flavor has rye, fruity, sweet malt and subtle woody hop notes. Very drinkable - youíll wanna chug it! (But please drink responsibly!) Texture is firm and lively, goes down well. Ryíve really enjoyed this one!

Aroma:This beer has a very weak nose. There is a hint of perfume, like Chanel #5. Appearance:This beer looks a lot like the original Mad Hatter: clear with a light golden color. Taste:On first sip, this beer has a big bold IPA flavor with lots of bitterness. Itís even more bold than the original Mad Hatter IPA. It has less malty notes than the original Mad Hatter. The rye is there, and pairs very well with the hops. Both the rye and the Hops add astringency that balance each other and pair well. After a few sips of this, I start to get more sweet citrus flavors. The aftertaste is clean and mellow, with a slight hoppy flavor to remind you that yes, you were drinking an IPA. Palate:The mouthfeel has a nice bite to it. Overall:This is a very tasty beer that has a lot of what I expect and want from an IPA, but because the flavors are so strong, I donít think itís very sessionable.
