COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust renovation of the India Pale Ale. Assertive dry-hoppying provides an aromatic telltale nose, indicative of the bitter symphony to follow. Bold hop character with lively grapefruit and citrus notes. 20° Plato, Alc. 9.4% by Vol.

Draught at the brew pub. Clear dark orange/copper color with a thin off white head that didn’t leave much lace behind. Not nearly as aromatic as the regular Mad Hatter IPA. Smelled of light perfumy hops and a touch of alcohol. Tastes of dried fruit and a dash of soy sauce. Slightly sweet up front with hop bitterness throughout. Okay I2PA.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2009
tap at Jerry’s.... pours a medium caramel brown with a thin light beige head....citrus hop aroma....flavors had a lot of caramel malt upfront combines with an abundance of piney hope that leaves way for a pretty astringent finish. not my style of dipa but alright nonetheless.

Aroma was some citrus, light pineapple, and bready malts although not very hoppy overall. Flavor was bitter, astringent, alcohol, with some hop oily feeling on the tongue. Pretty sweet overall. I would like it a little drier. Not bad but not a standout IIPA at all.

Hazy amber pour with pillowy off white head. Faint citrus, but mostly caramel malts on the nose. Grapefruit, light citrus and sweet malts. Slightly doughy, warm finish. Not as resinous as I hoped for the style or for my tastes.

Bomber into snifter. Clear copper body with a nice offwhite cream colored head that’s big and creamy and lacing. Aroma is nice and juicy and fresh: juicy citrus hops with a nice doughy cakey malt backbone. Very clean nice aroma. And, wow was I surprised with the flavor that followed. What happened here? A bit buttery, chemically, and just off. The hop profile is just weird and muted by the bizarrely off malt profile, or diactyl profile, or whatever is going on here. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: just a tease. Probably won;t finish this one.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2009
22oz bottle from riversideak via Mys Swap 4 (big thanks!). Pours a hazy copper with an average off-whie head. Nose is strong toffee, grapefruit and pine. Taste is apricot, mandarin orange, pineapple on top of a strong toffeish malt backbone. Carbonation is just right, body is full....mouthfeel almost syrupy. This is in between an IIPA and a barleywine.

On tap at The Beer Engine. Pours slightly hazy amber with a half finger beige head. The nose is caramel, sweet citrus and toffee. The taste is earthy hops, caramel malt, grapefruit and some resin in the finish. Medium bodied. Not bad.
