This IPA ranks up there with the best of them. Loads of pine and hops in the aroma. Good head, very dry and bitter beer.

12 oz. bottle, pours hazy light amber-orange color with alot of yeast floaties, nice head that leaves a lace in the glass. It has a strong piney-citrusy aroma, medium body with a full mouthfeel, fresh grapefruity flavors with a decent bite in the end, very well done.

Whoa! This is a terrific beer. Sweet malt flavor. Tastes of pine and lemony citrus. Lingering bitterness. Looks awesome - amber and cloudy. Fantastic!

Draught: Amber in color with a lemony nose. Piney bitterness that is really pleasant. Nice hop presence and well done.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2003
Nice hoppy aroma, lasting off-white head. Similar to most other IPAs I'm familiar with. Hoppy, floral palate and woody, bitter finish. Well done.

JMerritt (1870) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Sampled at the Peoria International Beer Festival. An execellent looking beer: cloudy copper, big head, excellent lacing. Aroma is very floral from the hops. An excellent hop flavor, made even better with the underlying malt presence. A truly great IPA.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 To begin, this one has a good copper color and nice head. Aroma is medium hoppiness, and pretty nice. The flavor of this beer, however, is the true point of impact. A great hop flavor with much more depth than the straight hoppy bitterness could ever give. A VERY nice IPA!

Copper color. Nice long-lasting off-white head. Strong centennial hop aroma. Solid bitterness with good backing malt. Very citric hop aroma and flavor. Slightly soapy tasting, possibly from the amount of centennial hops. Long bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Nice beer...

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2003
Tremendous hop aroma filled the room upon pouring this clear copper colored brew. The head was fluffy and stuck to the inside of the glass, typical of highly hopped beers. Flavor is light on malt and high on hops, yet still manages a pleasing balance. The finish has a touch of astringent bitterness, but not much. Definitely for hop heads.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2003 On tap. My proximity (2 miles)to this brewery might make me biased but Mad Hatter is the beer I consume the most annually. Tons of hops but balanced well with the citrus. Great copper color. If you like Sierra Nevada's Harvest Ale, this is very similar with a touch more hops. When mad-hatter is available cask-conditioned I won't order anything else.
