Review 8: New Holland Mad Hatter

Review 8
New Holland Mad Hatter: 5.25% abv

This is an India Pale Ale and it is evident on first smell. The nose is complex with strong floral notes, pear, grapes, lemon, sugar, and sweet spice. The taste is hoppy, has lemon, strong notes of grapefruit, mint, and cinnamon. The finish is medium long and is VERY bitter, with lemon, juniper berries, grapefruit and is slightly salty. The bitter characteristics of an IPA can turn some people off to them, but if you can get past that, the complexity is worth enjoying. 

Score: 8.5/10
