Forgot to rate this one a few weeks ago. Fairly average IPA, mild sweet taste up front, and medium bitter finish in this medium bodied IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Blind Faith pours a cloudy sharp orange with a frothy off-white head that lasts a good while and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet almost like a muffin with strong orange citrus hops. The flavor is loaded with bitter hops. I get some pine and some citrus hops. Overall this is a pretty decent beer but not one of my favorites.

Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and malt with subtle grassy touches. Intense, hoppy flavour with acetic notes and a sublt malty touch. Bitter finish. Acceptable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Well...I have to admit this is one of the first beers that got me into craft beer and I was happy to see this on the shelves again. Heck I haven’t even rated it yet! Pours a lightly hazy copper orange with a medium off white bubbly head. Aroma of that classic magic hat yeast. You know a little buttery and a little woody but it works in this beer. Lots of tropical fruit notes and maybe my mind is doing trick on me and warping me back 10 years but I swear I get some apricot too. Flavor is very fruity. Moderate bitterness and also some of the same woody/buttery notes the aroma had.

Not bad. Not very hoppy, more malty. Looks nice and pours light golden brown. Enjoyed it, but glad only got one.

Bottle. Pour is a hazy orange with white head. Lots of malts, not a lot of hops. This didn’t strike me as an IPA, but it is once, I guess?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours clear amber/copper with an off-white head. Aromas f fruit and roast malt. Med body or better. Flavor is caramel with a lot of earthy hop. Maybe some citrus and floral. The cascade citrus doesn’t seem prominent. It’s very balanced, quite tasty. Hop burn is slight. NW no. Good ale, yes.

NOT an IPA!!! Learn to label your beer correctly and maybe reviews would be better. Tastes like Heineken. Trust me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Binnys single rack. Pours an orangey brown with a white head. Very cloudy. Aroma has toffee and pine. Taste is of pine and thick caramelly malts and some resin. Medium bodied and muddled. Magic Hat continues to not impress. IPA nothing to the level of the band ....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a cloudy (malty) dark orange with thin off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells malty, mildly hoppy, and a bit sour. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. The sourness is unexpected, but it is refreshing. Belgian yeast? Hope it isn’t just my bottle.
