A: A nice transparent amber color, a little finger of off white head at the top the left quickly, not to much lacing.

S: Very hoppy nose, grapefruit is very present, a slight hint of honey as well.

T: The taste is almost just like the nose, very bitter up front from the hops, little bit of sweetness and the booze is present.

M:Medium bodied, with a sticky backbone, a good amount of carbonation.

O: Not a bad IPA, glad I was able to try it at least once, nothing wild, refreshing.

The orange amber colored body was clear, and the pour formed three ginger thick head. The carbonation looked subdued. The aroma was very tropical, with mango, peach, and papaya smells. There were also spicy and herbal notes in the nose. The taste was quite intense, as the spicy hops battled with the very sweet malt base. The result was not unlike sucking on a cinnamon flavored red hot. The alcohol was very warming as well, and the mouthfeel was sticky. This was a typical east coast style DIPA, with complex malt bill, lots of herbal hops, but no bracing bitterness.

Pours a nice copper / amber color. Not much head, but decent lacing down the glass. Large hoppy nose to this, decent mouthfeel with a lingering effect. The ABV is definitely present in this. Probably not a session beer by any means, although I do prefer the regular Mad Hatter for that. Worth trying, but maybe only once.
