3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Came with the summer sampler pack I purchased (it was the "mystery beer"). Pours a brownish, amber color. Small head and a little lacing. As the case with a lot of Magic Hat beers, it was pretty sweet and fruity. Maybe a little too sweet but still a solid beer. A nice amount of hops to go with a citrus fruity flavor make it enjoyable and pretty easy to drink. I’d definitely have it again.

The appearance in this beer is a amber, maybe even dark amber, with a nice head. It’s hops aroma are great and noticeable in the best of ways. It has great flavors, a little bitter, but great all around.

Batch 374 pours a dark amber with a large, fizzy light-brown head. Fair lacing with a fully diminishing head. Aroma is of harsh, heavy hops with spruce notes and a kick of sweet. Initial taste is moderately sweet, turning to a light bitter finish with long duration. Light to medium on the palate, we’re left slightly oily with soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2006 One dimensional but pretty great. Very heavy on the fresh pine and a bit of malt to back it up. Wonder how alcoholic this was? Basically registers as a reddish IPA and not much more or less else. And who needs anything else, frankly?

Lightly hazed amber ale with a thin lacing white head. A pungeant hops in aroma, with pot like qualities. A light caramel malt in mouth, with nice funkey hops action, light grapefruit, and pinhous notes. Very nice body, oily mouthfeel. Good, pleasing and surprising.
