22 oz bottle, pours out a gold copper color with whitish head and an average amount of bubbles. aroma of sourdough, spices, tart acid and a bit of earthy green hops. not overly funk, nor overly dry as i might have expected from something labeled "farmhouse" but it maintains enough IPA character that it doesn’t need to be purely wild. certainly a change of pace from the regular mad hatter IPA, but it’s an enjoyable one and would go nicely with shrimp or thanksgiving turkey.

jcr (2424) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bomber. Hazy amber body with a large, fluffy off-white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, resin, citrus. Hints of bubblegum, pepper and clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, sticky texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Taste of grapefruit, floral hops, spice, toasted grain. Peppery. Bitterness mutes most flavors. Interesting beer with the hop bitterness of an IPA and the spiciness of a Belgian ale. Grainy around the edges.

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 11, 2011
A softly steady pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a more than glass filling, five-finger thick, light tan colored crown of froth; The head slowly subsides with a very varied texture, leaving a structurally sound mesa of a plateau floating in the middle of my glass. The beer is an amber color that shows a brilliantly clear, red tinged, gold-amber hue when held up to the light. The nose smells of spicy Belgian yeast character mixed with fruity American hops; notes of lychee, concentrated apricot, woody pepper, slightly medicinal sweet ginger, touches of children’s aspirin and a big candied citrus zest aromatics. The finish has a toasted, lightly browned cracker maltiness. There is an almost tobacco like character to the medicinal side of the nose.

The beer is mostly dry and gets drier as it rolls across the palate. There is a firm, but not overwhelming bitterness to this beer and it gets augmented by some spicy yeast phenolics; there is a touch of clove character as well as some pepper spiciness. Up front there is a perceived sweetness from the bright hop character that contributes notes of lychee, tangelo zest, sweet Meyer lemon zest (or a sort of sweet lemon note) and some big floral citrus notes. The body of this beer is fairly light, lighter than the standard Hatter, nicely quaffable.

This is quite a bit more enjoyable than I was expecting. The mix of vibrant hop character and spicy, earthy yeast character works quite well.

22oz bottle 8/4/11 ’11 Vintage (Binny’s Downers Grove)-42° in Trappist Glass-Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a nice full slightly off white head. Aroma of yeast, Brett, pine, and citrus. Taste of funk, Belgian, hops, caramel, tartness, and citru. Big carbonation. This medium bodied brew is different but in a good way. I like the funkiness of it.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2011
22oz bottle served in a Blvd. Tank 7 tulip. Poured a hazy amber/gold with a couple of fingers of white head. Very fragrant with citrus and pine from the hops and a good dose of Belgian yeast spice. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Starts off with plenty of hop bitterness. Finishes with some Belgian spice. Very drying from hops in the finish as well. Very fresh tasting, which I always like. Interesting beer. Easy drinking.
