Bottle from Maris. Pours hazy orange with a nice sized white head, tons of lacing. The aroma is fairly funky with some floral notes.. minor lemon zest. The taste is sweet orange with a lightly bitter finish.. a somewhat overcarbonated finish.

I can not see how this got such a high rating... To me it doesnt have a whole lot of flavor. I can taste the hops and it has a tangy spice, but thats all i taste. It has a mild hoppy smell, and a nice caramel orange color. But it also appears to be unfiltered. It has tons of small solid chunks mixed throughout. they settled after a while. I cant give it a higher rating than a 3.4. I just wasnt that impressed.

Nephilium (1782) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Interesting aroma, with a touch of spiciness, pine, and a hint of vanilla. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a huge white head. The hops come forward in this one with a grassy quality, with just hints of Belgian sugar and spice. Not bad, but there are much better Belgian IPAs out there to try.

jsmerig (1556) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2011
Pours a clear orange yellow. Aroma of vanilla, oak and flowers. Starts with light malt base and quickly mixes spicy (from the yeast) and floral (from the hops) with the hops winning in the end.

Pours amber with thick cream head. Leaves a nice lacing, but not too sticky. Aroma is floral hops, yeast and spicy herbal notes. Flavor is peppery, fennel, a bit of toffee sweetness and a dryer floral hop finish. Nice, medium body with light carbonation. In line with the others in the Hatter series....nothing spectaular, but drinkable.

Headbanger (3986) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2011
22oz bottle 8/4/11 11 Vintage (Binnys Downers Grove)-42 in Trappist Glass-Pours a cloudy orangish amber with a nice full slightly off white head. Aroma of yeast, Brett, pine, and citrus. Taste of funk, Belgian, hops, caramel, tartness, and citru. Big carbonation. This medium bodied brew is different but in a good way. I like the funkiness of it.

PapaSkeetSkeet (1009) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 30, 2011
Light colored, well-carbonated. The yeast character in this is lovely, with more funk and berries than spice. Unfortunately the hop character is merely ok, slightly bitter, and not very smooth at that . It is well brewed and at its best is a light grassy/berry summer treat, but it just doesnt go where the american hops can. I never new American hops could pair well with a Belgian yeast, though, until I tried Iron Hill Belgian IPA, Stones Cali-Belgique doesnt do it for me either.

Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a huge foamy white head over a hazed golden body. Aromas are floral, peppery, estery, phenol, apricot and sage. Flavors are equally floral and spicy. Bitter, grainy, apricot, grassy, hoppy. Stone fruit, lingering esters. Lively carbonation.

jaymobrown (1845) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Definitely farmhouse. It didnt have any really big flavors, but lots of subtle hints of apple, hops, orange, and that outdoor smell. Nose was bright and fairly fruity, but with an acidic, lemon bent. Overall, smooth and easy to drink. Poured a nice golden color with a frothy white head. Well worth it.
