Drinking in honor of my dad, a Michigan brewed beer.Poured into an imperial pint glass a deep hazed copper color with a tightly formed one finger off white head that took it's time settling.Aromas of piney hops and sweet biscuit malts,not complex but nice enough.Flavors of piney and pithy citric hops over top of a big sweet caramel base,the maltiness is almost as big as the hops.It's not overly complex but it's packed with good flavor.

22 oz. bottle (vintage 2013), poured into an imperial pint glass.

A- Clean, copper body with a 1-1/2 finger, tan head after a normal pour. Light carbonation. Really good head retention and awesome stick. A second pour clouded things up with some sediment.

S- Clean, fresh hops. Juicy grapefruit and very leafy, organic tones at first. Some grainy malts in background. Tropical fruits later. Caramel comes through with warmth with leathery notes (almost like a lighter barleywine).

T- Great balance. Sweet and bready malt backbone stands up against significant citrus and leafy/minty hops. Clean, dry finish. Hints of caramel and tobacco with warmth. Really robust.

M- Medium-full body, medium-light carbonation.

O- I love a balanced IPA, and really appreciate the use of Michigan grown hops. Maybe a bit pricy for a standard IPA @ $5.19 for the 22 oz. If not cost prohibitive (and limited availability) it could be an IPA rotation mainstay. It was a great pair with French bread and white cheddar and dill cheeses before firing up the grill for a summer, burger cookout.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a New Holland Brewing Company branded imperial pint glass

Pours a glimmering light copper topped with a one and a half finger clean white head. Above average retention, abundant splotchy lacing. Very light pine, fresh green tea, floral notes and hints of mint on the nose. Opens with clean herbal notes, white tea, and edible orchid. Finishes with floral notes, light pine, and moderately bitter grapefruit rind. Medium body, wonderful mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation, perfect for this brew. Smooth, velvety, with just a hit of creaminess on the finish. A crisp and refreshing IPA; extremely enjoyable.

Pours a clear copper color with just over one finger of head that slowly settled to a thin cap. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.

Quite fragrant aroma. Plenty of citrus and floral hop notes. A little bit of toasted, bready malt underneath the hops.

The promising malt bill did not really show up in the flavor. A touch of sweetness but otherwise this is a pure hop display. Citrus rind, orange, and quite a bit of bitterness.

Feels like a substantial IPA. The carbonation is splendid resulting in a pleasant overall texture.

Not an IPA that sets itself apart from a lot of others. Probably would mean more to Michigan beer drinkers. Wish the malt came out a little more ass I believe they used some promising ingredients.

From the label: Michigan Hatter celebrates our local agriculture with its Michigan grown Cascade hops from the Leelanau peninsula. Bright and aromatic, with delicious malt notes underneath a citrusy showcase of hops. Pairings: Sharp cheddars, Herb roasted poultry and curry.
