Oak Aged Mad Hatter (New Holland)

For all of the hatters I've tried, I had not yet tried the this oak aged IPA. I had a bottle in the lair and was craving an IPA. It more than did the trick.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This deep amber brew had a clean white and bubbly head. It smelled oaky and floral.

Taste: The light oak dries it. The aftertaste is oaked too. It wasn't too strong, but it was strong enough to enjoy. I tasted caramel with floral and woody hops. A very good IPA if you're looking for something drier, yet smooth.

From the New Holland site:
Mad Hatter I.P.A. aged in Kentucky Barrels. Round, smooth wood character brings a new dimension to dry-hopped, aromatic hoppiness.
