Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of kristina. Pours golden with a slight haze and a small off-white head. Sweet and slightly oaky nose combined with some citrusy hops. Medium body, sweet and fruity, vanillaish oak but the bitter, citrusy hops seem to dominate. Dry and hoppy finish. Subtle and easy going. 220312

Draft at Dexters. Amber-brown, foamy off-white head, oily. Really pleasant aroma. Quite mellow, smooth, not much bitterness other than a faint balance. So simple that it bugs me itís sold in expensive 22s. Id scoop up a sixer, but itís really just another watery beer from New Holland. Whatever.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Taste is malt sweetness with nice hops bitterness with mild woodiness and some vanilla. The wood aging is very subtle, but very pleasant.

always liked NH .. Pours a deep gold .. . medium foam .. glue lacing .. . oak and syrup mainly .. . smooth and easy to drink .. . slightly simplified but enjoyable . .. . If youíre in a war, instead of throwing a hand grenade at the enemy, throw one of those small pumpkins. Maybe itíll make everyone think how stupid war is, and while they are thinking, you can throw a real grenade at them..

This is my least favorite of the Hatter series. It has a hazy brown pour with almost no head at all. The woody aroma has a bourbon-like quality without the alcohol. It has a light body with thin texture and average carbonation. The taste is again woody with a dry, bland finish.

Pours brown with foamy head. Aromas of wood and bourbon. Medium bodied and moderately bitter up front with an off taste finish that I cannot quite identify. I was disappointed in this given how much I like the Mad Hatter

DrnkMcDermott (2921) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bought at Lemon Tree in July. It probably shouldnít have been cellared this long, but letís see. Pours a gentle hop nose. Amber to brown body, nice half-finger of eggshell foam. First sip is mild, but just a little more builds up on the Centennial hops. The malt gives the impression of starting toward phenol, but as of now, itís just fine. A bit sweet on the tongue, but also a dry finish. Hops building in the aftertaste. Any oak impressions are around the edges, part of the aftertaste. The Mad Hatter with just a little something extra, yet excellent for a $5 bomber.

Location/Date:Catching up on Ratings, November 2011.

Appearance: Pours dark copper.
Aroma: Aroma is of citrus and and oak.
Taste: Pretty much as the title implies, IPA leanings with Oak..
Palate:Smooth palate on a medium body..

Summary: Solid interesting take on an IPA. I donít know if it belongs in the IPA category though, as itís kind of an offshoot and not traditional in style(which is perfectly fine, given my rating).

Last of the Great Hatter Experience of the Richmond 16th. Medium amber, aroma and flavor yet again match. Caramel oriented with a pleasant, slight vanilla note. Faint citric hops quite muted. Not bad at all, probably my favorite of the set, even though I usually donít like oaked IPAís. In this instance, it seemed to add some character that the original lacked.

Butters (3983) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2011
Sampled at the the Sweet Sixteen Richmond Gathering. Sampled with the other 5 in the series.Clear amber pour with bright white ring of head. Honey sweetness and mellow hop on the nose with a malty semismokey backbone. Flavor is mellowed and hints of vanilla and wood and the same piney citrus underlying base. Pretty good actually.
