I had this on tap last year and loved it couldn't wait to try it again. This rye ale pours a slightly hazy copper red hue with a billowing and long lasting off white head that leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is spicy and bitter. Notes of floral and citrus hops are accented by peppery and herbacious aromas. There is also a nice underlying malt sweetness that balances the entire nose. The mouthfeel is on the full bodied side of medium. Smoith but coating. The flavor is more bitter than the nose but still all the perceived aromas are present on the tongue. I can't quite put my finger on what citrus is present but its definitely there along with the spice, floral, and some pine. This is good, real good, and quite complex. There is almost a Belgian-y quality to it with all the spiciness and yet sweet and bitter flavors. Well done New Holland. Aside from the Imperial Hatter this may be my favorite of the Hatter series.

A: Pours a clear amber with a thick, creamy white head that leaves a substantial amount of lace as it recedes.

S: Gentle, somewhat muted aromas of caramel, toffee, rye bread, biscuits, cream, herbs, lemon, and orange are present on the nose.

T: Notes of herbs, grass, lemon, lime, and orange vie against maltier flavors of caramel, toffee, sweet cream, biscuit, black pepper, and rye bread. The finish is short and simple with notes of caramel, rye bread, herbs, and lemon.

M: Medium in body, creamy, velvety, and smooth. Carbonation is gentle. This ale is very easy to drink and has a wonderfully soft, smooth texture, but it needs to be slightly better carbonated.

O: Not bad at all. I really like the way the malt and hop flavors separate on the entry and then integrate on the finish. It really shows the drinker how a beer like this is put together. As Rye IPAs go, this one is not really groundbreaking or extreme in any way, but it is very solidly crafted, very approachable, and very flavorful. I like it.

A- Hazy amber color with a thick, creamy, 2 finger head. Awesome sticky lacing with great trailing. Lacing holds on tight. I don't think it can get much better than this.

S- Grapefruit, tropical fruits, rye, pine and caramel. Strong aromas that mix together nicely.

T- Grapefruit, orange, pine, citrus rind and rye over a nice malt backbone. Rye compliments the flavors and brings them all together very well. Sweet citrus, pine, citrus rind aftertaste. Awesome.

M- Medium to heavy body. Super smooth with a nice oily coating left behind. Dry finish with lingering bitterness.

O- This is one of the the best Rye IPAs I've had. When its fresh, every aspect being graded is flirting with perfection. As it ages, the citrus fades and the rye becomes more prominent, but its still enjoyable. The lower ABV makes it dangerously sessionable, as well.

@ Owl Farm, Brooklyn NY

Deep, cloudy orange with a clingy white head. Reeks of dank citrus hops and rye spice. Tastes like it smells. The sweet malt and citrus battle it out with the rye spice and sharp bitterness. A very raw, in your face beer yet balanced too. Very well done.

Serving type: on-tap
