2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 translucent golden copper with a thin but dense and lasting white head; sticky medium-full body with high carbonation.
aroma: piney hops and a bit of pale malt.
taste: lots of piney hop bitterness with some citrus and apricot notes, toffee malt, and some subtle fruity yeast esters.
Hides alcohol well. Lacks malt balance and depth. The malt character is overwhelmed by sticky hop bitterness. The hop character is too raw and piney for my taste, although the undertones of apricot is nice.

Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a smooth long lasting bitter finish. Good brew with a small alcohol bite.

DeLand, Fl - the Mad Hatter - on tap. Pours a nice dark orange with a sticky off-white head. Light spruce in the aroma with a hint of apricot jam. Flavor has a solid bitter citrusy backbone with some mint accents, a bit of apricots and a bit of booziness - but the 10% is hidden quite well. Mouthfeel is slightly cluttered.

Draft… Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is quite sweet and busting-at-the-seams with tropical fruit and overripe apricot. Full-bodied and oily with mild carbonation. Fruity, bittersweet, mildly boozy flavor and finish.
