3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Slightly cloudy pal amber / yellow brew. Mid sized white head. Hoppy aroma - resin, floral. Taste is very hops forward, hops front to back really. Nice resin core with floral and a little lemon and citrus mixed in. Light bodied, clean and refreshing. Enough malt to keep it from being bitter, but definitely malt takes a backseat to the hops here. Solidly hoppy but still fairly delicate and light. An iron butterfly of a brew...

No head at all. Strawy yellow color, not a hop punch as I expected. Far from a good IPA

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Paler appearance than I was expecting, a hazy yellow, good head. Looks like a slightly richer Hefe. Taste and aroma are middle of the road IPA, some floral hops with some biscuit malt. Flavourful, but not adventurous. Body is medium. Overall, this is a beer that is drinkable without being weak, but not a face punch of hops.

Iím a fan of this one. Pours hazy yellow with a decent head, a floral nose an a medium body. Tastes primarily of citrus and resin. Has a nice balance, not overwhelmingly hoppy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a case of this a while back on sale and really liked it. Poured a hazy orange yellow with nice while frothy head. Aroma bit piney and resiny with hint of orange. Flavor has nice malt base with a piney resiny essence and a dull warming alcohol presence. Bit bitter on the backside but not overly much. Nice balance.

Pours cloudy dark golden color with white head. Light caramel and citrus aromas. Bitter citrus with some cereal and grass. Medium body with average carbonation. By far the best magic hat beer Iíve had.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Watering Hole. Clear golden blond, white fluffy head soon fades. Aroma is citrusy but not so bitter, orange maybe, bit floral, very nice. Taste is lightly fruity, quite full bodied, some malty sweetness coming through. But like a DIPA taste without the bitterness. Nice but a bit unexciting.
