New Holland Mad Hatter

They re vamped their recipe a year or two ago, so i figured it needed an updated review…

Bright sweet hop aroma. Clean crisp bite of hops and balanced with some caramel maltiness. Both are flavorful, neither overpowering the other. Very smooth mouthfeel, with a slight caramel malt lingering in aftertaste.

4 out of 5 stars.

Moderate hop citrus aroma, not too strong, balanced.  Full mouth sweetness that comes in soft and ends resiny.  Slight lingering sweetness of hops in aftertaste.  No notable alchohol flavor, despite the 8.0% ABV.  Aroma comes across much more balanced, but the flavor is pretty strong and resiny.  This would be nice if it wasn’t so over the top with the resin flavor.

4 out of 5 stars.
