a cut below NG Black Top. head is a bit fizzy and dissipates quickly. lacks a it in the aroma department. nothing really stands out to me.

enjoyable flavor and not a bad beer but there are better black IPAs.

Price: $5.99 Served In: Pint Glass

Pours out a fairly portesque brown and settles in the glass a very solid brown with a modern dark burnt orange cast when up to brighter light. A slimming but thick foamy cap of dark beige builds breifly. Crumbling down to a whispered skim and bubbly collar ring. Lots of lacing in broken globby sheets stick on the glass.

Aroma is quite clean with a mighty pull of hops bringing in orange tones and candied grapefruit bits. The chocolate roasty tones underneath build very nicely along with some burnt grains as it warms, adding for a complexing mix about the aroma.

Taste is a bit thin with some burntness of orange peels, a twist of curdled cream, a touch of lemongrass, and a tinge of burntish bitterness as it finishes. The roast or chocolate malts are barely pulling any flavor thru the overall weaked hopitude it creates.

Thinner medium body without a whole lot of length to it and short on any finishing complexity other then the apparent orange hop notes and a slight taint of burnt roast.

I have liked the Hatter series, but much like the Rye, this comes up quite short when compared to the Oak aged, which is by far superior and the top of the group.
