12 oz bottle from the Fall Harvest sampler case. Not as crazy about this one as everyone else but it was okay in its own right. Still had some issues with the perfume aftertaste that seems common to Magic Hat.

Yellow to tan and pretty clear, head and lace ok but not fantastic.
Aroma and taste are nice and hoppy, citrus notes, a little floral and a nice but subtle malt backbone.
Drinkability is high, itís real easy to down and almost refreshing at the same time. Bitterness is prevalent, yet clean. Body is medium. Overall itís a tasty IPA and Iíve enjoyed my sixer very much.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy, golden with about 1íí of white head that dissipated rather quickly leaving very little lacing. Aroma is very weak. There might be a little bit of breadiness but hops are minimal with nothing standing out. There is no noticeable pine or citrus. Taste is a little sweet initially but then transitions to bitterness. Once again nothing stands out and this is a very bland beer. I read reviews by some comparing this to the better DIPAs out there. That is crazy and I think there are IPAs out there that blow this away. I did consume this after having several Two Hearted Ales (as well as other beers) so perhaps this review isnít fair. Still, I have had many Magic Hat varieties over the years and have never been impressed by any of them.

A rather lighter IPA than usual.

Bottle from wegmans. Pours slightly hazy yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a grassy quality, almost like a good pilsner. The taste is light bitter, sweet grapefruit, dry finish.

Bottle. Pours a nice golden. Not a great aroma as far as IPAs go. Good hoppy flavor. My favorite of their beers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 4-24-2009. This bottled beer pours a medium sized off-white frothy and very fizzy head with good retention. The hue of this beerís body is golden, the carbonation is fizzy and fast rising and there is a good amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, fruity and citrus hops. Ditto for the taste along with some pine hops. The Palate is lightly tingly and this beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, a quaffable IPA and worth trying.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a hazy golden color with lots of fine-grain sediment floating throughout and a large white head, and the aroma is a blend of earthy yeast and floral and resin hops. The taste is quite bitter on the front that then subsides a little to reveal a mild sourness and a slight sweetness, which isnít necessarily the best combination because of that sour. The palate is fairly decent, though, due to the medium body, average carbonation, slick texture, and long finish.
