If you know me (or have followed this blog at all …), you know that I really like APA/IPAs. I would classify these styles as my favorite. I just like that hoppy flavor in these beers. You can also find my opinion on east coast/west coast versions of these brews. Today’s beer is neither — it is from New Holland Brewing.
Since they are from Michigan, they don’t seem to fall into the standard classification I’ve described before. This particular IPA, the Mad Hatter, stands on its own. The nose is excellent, and the flavor definitely hits me where I like … right on the Hop taste buds. I could easily drink lots of this beer … I picked this one up at the Whole Foods store in Springfield, VA.
