This amped-up version of the Hatter pours a full copper color with basically no head and carbonation looked weak. Strong resinous aromas permeate. Lots of grapefruit and fresh picked hops in the aroma. Taste was also strong on the hops. Malts seemed to be unsupportive of the hops. Sometimes this is good, and it was good, but it wasn't anything mindblowing. A bit of a bready yeasty base did all it could but the hops were quite powerful in their piney sharpness. A bit more thickness, sweetness, and liveliness and this would have been excellent. But for now, it's decent at best.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a Hop Stoopid Priced bomber, obviously that means an actually good price!
Pours a copperish color half finger of light tan head, nice lacing
Smell is pineapple, bready and caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, a spicy note aswell. Smells like your average DIPA
Taste is a dose of bready malt followed by a some citrus, grapefruit, lemon, orange, pineapple, pine, spicey hop note, piney bitterness on the finish
Mouthfeel is medium full, carbonation is full and cleaning.
Decent offering here, glad I tried it. It is interesting, opens up malty but then hits you with the hops, kind of unique in that way, wish I knew the date instead of it just saying "Vintage 2014"
Serving type: bottle
