New Holland’s Black Hatter is a black IPA that’s light on tongue and flavor, but still very much an impressive brew. Its earthy, malty flavors give the brew very little body, but all is met with some decent carbonation and a somewhat welcome bitter finish. There’s little to no alcohol presence in this brew, making it a very drinkable beer.
