Everything was muted...aroma, taste and bitterness. I see no reason to push Michigan ingredients. I support free trade...and always using the best from around the globe!

From the bottle the beer pours an amber color with nice head. The aroma has some citrus and some malts. Taste is pretty smooth with some hops up front followed by some herbs and flowers.

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has a decent amount of citrus supported by bread and grain notes. Flavor has a combination of grass and sweet citrus with a bread backbone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper color with a long-lasting, foamy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma is floral, pine, resin, and caramel. Flavor is citrus, earthy, pine, floral, and resin notes coming through, along with the caramel. Has some lively carbonation and a smooth body and moderate bitterness. At first I didn’t care for this, but the more I drink the more I like it. Pretty good.

22oz bottle. at MAH. Earthy and meh. Nothing awesome about it. The ingredients may be localish but the beer kind of sucks. Not awesome. Bland, earthy, mediiocre at best. Friendly numbers..

The Michigan Awesome Hatter combines the successful Hatter IPA series with the fresh hop craze. The results are... kind of weird. On the one side, this IPA reveals some nuanced elements you don’t always get in an IPA. Caramely and subtle chocolate malt foundation. Hop flavors feature an herbaceous tea-like quality, berry notes, and citrus. On the other side, this doesn’t seem much like an IPA at all. The crispness and bold aromatics just aren’t there. Like the other Hatters, this one’s fun to try. Definitely not my favorite release in the series, though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Darker than expected appearance, but a mild overall IPA. Light citrus aroma, sort of weak, somewhat stale bitter finish.

Looks kindah viscous in the glass from a bot. Hazy like darker hefe. Mild stuffy nose sweet aroma. Big blasting mouth coating imperial ipa thick feel. What else can be said except it’s quite an impression.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Where and how: tasting, bottle 650 ml
Aroma: medium plus intensity, slightly earthy, even metallic. Sweet malts and alcohol character followed.
Top: large, white cap with some lace
Base: hazy amber-gold
Palate : medium lighter body, dry. Finish fades quickly.
Taste: rather bland. Forgettable and with its rather thin body that had metallic hints blended with caramel like sugars do not help. Side hop character at least was decent.
other notes with flaws, but in the end its an OK brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Luminous peachy amber color, 1" thick frothy hop-pocked heavy cream head. Floral and fruity hop notes hover about the bouquet. Notes of peaches and pineapple arise. Similarly this medium-bodied ale is dominated by floral hop notes, with rivulets of fruits, including pineapple. Light bitterness, gives way to a fruity hop finish.
