COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, itís an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. Itís the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Clear golden with a thick lacy white head. Aroma is fresh, bold and hoppy with some earthy malt presence. Smooth and sweet body has a bitter bite toward the finish. Kinda reminds me of a toned down version of Stone 7th Anniversary. A good, drinkable, and fresh IPA. Thanks to SpringsLicker for bringing this to the Georgia 14% gathering!

Pours nice amber color with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Nice IPA with a good balance of maltiness and hops in both the aroma and flavor. Somewhat metallic finish mars an otherwise good beer. Medium to full body, and creamy carbonation.

Shag (2607) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - JUL 11, 2004
This smells EXACTLY like lemom palmolive detergent. Well this is off to a strange start already. Yellow color with a light head. Iím not catching alot of hops in this one. This tastes more ike a run of the mill APA. The mouthfeel is watery and bland. Easy drinking and little else. However you will not get dish pan hands! Decent.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2004
Grapefruit hops are a bit overpowering. Some caramel and bread aromas are also present. Deep yellow body is hazy. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately acidic, heavily bitter finish. Medium boyd, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: with the exception of Thumbsucker, Magic Hat continues to underwhelm me.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2004
High expectations and slightly disappointed. This was still good but I wnated more from it. The pours is a clear golden amber with very little head just a slight bit of fizziness. The aroma is baby food, diapers and dirty dishwater. Extremely hoppy, this is a good thing, lots of grapefruit and other light fruits. There is just not enough of a malt backbone to make the body anyhing more than thin and medium bodied. This is all hops, but in an acidic unbalanced way. Finish is very crisp clean and dry.

Very poor for a new IPA you would expect to be good. Almost budweisrer clear....a somewhat nice hop character but not overly impressive.

I didnít really warm up to this brew, though I like some of Magic Hatís offerings. Pale but hazy gold. Full apricoty malt and an odd hop blend. Not convinced.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Bottle. Clear golden yellow color. Aroma has light bitter citrus. Taste it grapefruit and hops....itís not terrible, but I really like strong IPAís and this one doesnít do it at all.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Not bad, but not as good as Blind Faith. Amber in color with a frothy light tan head. Citrusy, hoppy aroma. Tastes like a blend of flowers and citrus fruit with a hoppy kick. A bit watery. Definitely drinkable.

shadey (1900) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Pours golden with a thin white head. Good Lacing on the glass after the head dissapates. Smells hoppy like an IPA should. Very tastey. Hops and a touch of sweet citrus but very mild. Not the best IPA but very drinkable.
