Gorgoues blurry bronze orange hue crowned with an immensely tall and loftly thickened spongey beige foam that sits like a Hat that won't blow off in a strong wind. A blitz of lacing encompasses the glass edge with thick gluey broken sheeting.

Moderately paced aroma of rough cut rye bread and some dullish orange-sided peachy hoppyness with a bit of popping floral pine.

Flavor is fairly solid for an IPA, pretty good crunchyness about the popping hoppyness which brings in more sweet and bittering pine tones then the aroma. The citrusy stuff is there in a lengthy, yet muted orangeyness with a light spritz of lemon. Has a subdued hint to the rye crispness in front but that's disguarded quickly by the orange toned hops and some light toasty malt background. Grapefruity bitterness parches through as it finishes.

Feel is closing in on a medium body, perhaps a little looser then I'd like at the front but it pulls together quickly with a pretty beefy orange toned hoppyness. A quick snippet of rye crispness sits in there and floats around for a bit within its toasty malt.

Lengthy in hoppy tone overall and pretty solid, but the Oak-Aged Hatter is superior in balance, body, and flavor complexity for the New Holland series of IPA's.

Price: $9.99 Served In: Pint Glass
