New Holland Michigan Awesome Hatter

This 5.8% ABV India Pale is made with Michigan grown ingredients and is from the New Holland Brewing Company of Holland, Michigan. It is made in conjunction with Michigan Awesome. It uses Centennial hops from the Leelanau Peninsula and Michigan grown and malted barley.

The beer pours a deep and dark copper and amber. There is over an inch of thick and foamy off-white head. The aroma is relatively mild, this is odd, celery, caramel malt, a bit of papaya and a bit of pine. The taste is caramel malt, grassy, herbal, light fruit, of pear or plum, and a bit of bubble gum. This is an odd duck of an IPA.
