Mild slight flavor upfront with a lingering hoppy flavor. The hops are sharp and crisp.

Smells strong, more like a double than a single IPA. The color is nice orange. Iím glad there were 3 of these in the 12 pack because I wasnít convinced after the first two. This is actually pretty decent. Not anything extraordinary but certainly a satisfying IPA.

poured from bottle out of ""night of the living dead variety pack". yellow hazy color with thin white head. Aroma is light hops with dry lemon taste. Not the big Hop bite I was looking for. Not bad, just so so. Love a lot of other Magic Hat stuff.

Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a hazy pale yellow beer with sweet topical fruit flavours, sharp citrus notes and a grapefruit finish. Excellent!

Big fresh hop flavor and aroma. Piney, slight floral character. Poor is light gold, very clear. Thin, quickly dissipating head. basic malt. Not a lot of specialty grain in this beer. Overall good beer. I am drinking this pretty fresh for a VT beer shipped to TX. Best beer out of the fall variety pack.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank out of the bottle from the night of the living dead 12 pack. Smells of bitter and citrusy hops, the smell is very large. It taste fairly bitter with little no balance with malts, citrus and a bit of lemon also. Finish is very dry and overall not a very enjoyable IPA for me, not enough balance

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 2011. From a mixed case of Magic Hat brews. Poured amber color. Caramel, pine and hoppy aromas. Flavors add citrus and more caramel. Not bad, but nothing special either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a pale golden with a white head. Aroma has floral hops and fruit. Taste is of fresh fruit - strange flavored ones (mango? passionfruit? pineapple?) - and some citrus and some toffee. Light to medium bodied. Slightly sticky and fairly balanced between the fruitiness and the malt side. Not very IPA-ish -- more an APA, IMO. Definitely based off of Magic Hat 9, as the similarities exist.
