New Holland Rye Hatter IPA

New Holland Rye Hatter IPA

User Rating:

Dang!  This beer has some giddy up.  Both in the malt and hop categories.  Allow me to explain. Once you get past the great color this beer has, an orange-copper hue, you are in for a treat.  The plume of delicate foam that laces invites you to waft in the hoppy sweet smells that rise from […] ...

New Holland Farmhouse Hatter IPA

New Holland Farmhouse Hatter IPA

User Rating:

A new variation of their Mad Hatter IPA since last time I sampled a flight of them in 2010.  This one incorporates an interesting Belgian yeast strain to the mix which pairs rather well with the hop profile. Do not be fooled by the old “American Gothic” farmer on the label as this beer is […] ... [Read more]

New Holland Black Hatter IPA

New Holland Black Hatter IPA

User Rating:

Reflecting back on the Mad Hatter night at Bavarian Lodge I must say my appreciation for the beer has changed.  Back then I found this average, but after sipping on this bomber I won me over.  I guess my reason for the grade was due to the fact that I had not sampled that many […] ... [Read more]

New Holland Imperial Hatter IPA

User Rating:

It poured amber. Nice amber if you know what I mean. Clear, fresh, inviting. Good lacing on a white head but it was the aroma that drew me in. Hops. Lots of hops. Grapefruit to the max. This rivals my favorite beer. I love dark beers that say “relax” and I love lighter beers that […] ... [Read more]

New Holland Beerhive Tripel

User Rating:

After a productive evening being a worker bee around the house I decided it was time to unwind and enjoy the cool breeze, my hammock, and a beer. Searching the newly arrive shelf I located a new release by New Holland that fell in their high gravity series. The label depicted a large honeycomb with […] ... [Read more]

New Holland The Poet Oatmeal Stout

User Rating:

Noel: The shorter and darker the days get during winter…the darker the beer should get too. It’s an unwritten law of the universe that just makes sense. It’s on those bitter cold, dead-of-winter nights that you just can’t say no to a pitch black porter or stout. Thankfully, New Holland Brewing Co. out of Holland, […] ... [Read more]

New Holland Mad Hatter IPA

User Rating:

I can distinctly remember my first experience with Mad Hatter IPA (or any IPA, for that matter). A few summers back, I was at Molly Malone’s Irish Pub in Forest Park, IL with my buddy Adam, and still had a relatively tame beer palate. Ever eager to broaden my brew horizons, I glanced at the […] ... [Read more]
