L: Pours brilliant chestnut producing a 1” white foam collar that grips the side of the glass.
S: Vanilla, malt, fruit, melon.
T: Starts malty supported by big, large pitted fruit flavors and a hint of melon. Hoppy bitter finish.
F: Very creamy, medium full body, medium to medium low carbonation.
O: Nice, drinkable beer but needs just a little more cow bell.

I've tried a few of the "hatter" brews from New Holland, and this one seems to be the most underwhelming.
the oak age is something you either enjoy, or wish it was just absent in this type of beer.
this one may be the latter.
by all means try it if you like Oak Aged IPAs, but for me it takes away instead of adding.
regardless, it's an agreeable beer full of hoppy bitterness and the right balance of malt to add some would say an over the top sweetness, but goes well with the aging.
also, cheap and available.

Decent. Just not a huge fan of the oak aged IPA'S. Has nice hoppy aromas, but lacks the bitterness I come to find in the previous series offerings.
