Hard to review this one, as I'd just been blown away by my first Bell's Two-hearted a few moments before. Had a bottle of this at Beerbistro in Toronto, and although it is certainly decent, it doesn't compare to the Bell's. The Mad Hatter has pretty much everything an IPA should have, though. Good balance (slightly on the citrusy-hops side), little bit of sourness in the aftertaste, some woodsy notes as it warms up. Quite drinkable, regardless of the 'competition' that night.

Served in a pint glass at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Super frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Citrus, grassy, floral, herbal, and resiny pine hops followed by pale, toasted, and bready malts.
Taste: Same as above with nice mild bitterness. TTaste great and liking the low ABV. More towards the English than American, but very balanced and hoppy at the same time with more effort on the bitter side.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, crisp, refreshing, and medium bodied.
Overall: I like this IPA a lot due to its hop characteristics and low ABV. Will be enjoying more of these now that they are readily available here in Massachusetts.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a slightly hazy copper, a finger of off white head, decent lacing
Smell is a big dose of caramel, toasty and bready malt, some pine and grapefruit and a little floral hop
Taste is grapefruit, huge floral hop, big biscuity and bready malt, a light pine bitterness in the finish, sweet malt in the finish
Mouthfeel is medium, heavy carbonation, slightly dry
Decent beer here, nothing i will revisit for any reason, drinks more like a APA then A IPA, really balanced almost overly so.
