Kind of funky, not very bitter, very malty. Has a weird aftertaste too. This one comes across more like a belgian beer crossed with a saison. Not getting the IPA profile at all.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

New Holland White Hatter.

Saw this one sitting on the shelves a few hundred times and never actually picked it up until now. Let's see how it is. I've typically enjoyed the Hatter series out of New Holland so I'm hoping this one won't be much different from my expectations.

Look - Pours a very deep murky orange with a huge slightly off white head that turns into rock formations after about a minute of sitting. The murk somehow makes carbonation impossible to read despite the rather light color of the beer. Head retains very well altroughout the drink and leaves a pile of soapy suds sitting in the bottom of the glass. Lacing is soap bubble like and not very sticky.4.

Smell - Clove like and ripe with orange peel and high doses of citrus. Wheat and a touch of maltiness as expected. 3.75.

Taste - Flavors are very bright and vibrant starting off with a large dosage of lemon zests and wheat with a mixture of balanced citric acid. A touch clove like and quite juicy. Bit of a watery finish, but not much to complain about in this department. 4.

Feel - Mouth feel is pretty light with an exceptionally high dosage of carbonation that makes its present very apparent. As the beer sits it develops a slightly soap like feeling. 3.25.

Overall - Not too shabby. A fine beer for summer and quite sessionable. At $1.79 for a single 12 oz. I'd say I got my monies worth. Nothing that will knock your socks off, but certainly not offensive. 3.75.

Closing out the summer with a six pack of these which were on sale. Pours a hazy golden color with a lot of floaties. Lemon and orange scent on the nose. Taste is more tangy than hoppy for a pale ale. However, the finish is still pretty clean. Would enjoy on a hot sumer day.

This is a good WPA. Similar to Deschutes Chain Breaker. The coriander spice and orange peel are evident but I'm not tasting the hops so m7ch. Iverall, a solid summer wit

The White Hatter pours a light yellow-orangish color. It's flavor is extremely citrusy, acidic, and sweet with little malt flavor. The more I nursed it and the closer to room temperature the beer got I found I enjoyed the flavor more; the acid and citrus seemed more muffled.
