Pours a clear, bright amber color with not much foam. The aroma is floral hops. There is a decent malt quality up front in the flavor, and then a dry finish. I liked it more than I thought I would.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear, dark, bubbly amber with a thick, fluffy eggshell head. Hoppy aroma is mainly woody and has a dusty hay overtone plus just a hint of citrus. Hops dominate the pleasing flavor, supporting woody and crisp malty notes plus a snip of orange. Texture is not too firm, but has decent fizz. Maybe not the beer of my dreams, but definitely fantastic.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Pepper hop aroma with mild carbonation. Tastes like hoppy perfume. Do they put apricots in everything?

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample in a flight at the Beer Growler in Alpharetta. Pours orangish-yellow, with a small, cream colored head. The aroma is straw, bitter orange peel, cloves, and lavender. Sweet and malty up front, with an aggressive bitterness coming forward quickly. Medium body, smooth, and lightly spicy. Pretty good carbonation, and a nice velvety mouthfeel. Overall, this is a creative, spicy, hoppy creation. Enjoyable, drinkable, and unusual.

This is a like an IPA with training wheels. Candy caramel malt is bigger than hops, but the hops are fresh and interesting.

Pulls a deep golden copper. It is a very light broom. It has a good white foamy head but the lacing could be better. Is quite bitter for a pale lager but also very one dimensional and fades quickly. Overall one of the better magic hats but there are better IPL’s out there .. . . I wonder what is what like in 1776?
