halfonit (1303) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2014
I think this might be a bottle I keep for the shelves. Pours a murky deep dark golden brown color. Amber. Thick off white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus and grain. Kind of a hoppy fall harvest scent. Full palate. Very dry hop bite hits me smack in the face. This is probably one of the driest beers I’ve ever had. Bitter, boozey, thick, different, mouthwatering.

SirLimpsalot (3479) - SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2015
@ Stordirren 15-8-19: mycket maltig och kraftig doft. Ganska potent smak. Het med mycket malt. Inte så mycket frukt men mera toner av torkat frukt och russin.

NordicV (1780) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2015
Kopparfärgad öl med ett skum som försvinner ganska snabbt. Karamell och lättare fruktighet. I smaken tar humlen något mer plats. Känns ändå lite mer som en IPA än en DIPA.

MadRobin (2692) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Very hazy orange with a small off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of orange, grapefruit, pine, mango, caramel and guava. Taste of pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit, alcohol and caramel. Very bitter. Medium/full body and medium/high carbonization. Certainly a big IPA, but not an exceptional one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

There are some great IPA’s in the Hatter series. Imperial Hatter is no exception but it’s probably my least favorite of the bunch so far. I like that it’s bold: big notes of booze and bitterness. Aroma is grassy, citrusy and piney. That all carries through into the flavor. Feel is bone dry, crisp, and warm (thanks to the alcohol). My only complaint is that the alcohol and herbal hops create a slightly off-putting medicinal note when the brew warms. It’s a minor thing, but I wasn’t a fan. Still, I continue to be impressed by this series.
