3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a darker, hazy golden color with a little white head and moderate lacing. Aroma was a citrusy delight along with pine. Taste is dead on for a generic IPA, but better than I was expecting for Magic Hat. I like this beer and it is a good bang for the buck. Good job on this one Magic Hat -- Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma quite fruity at first, but don’t inhale before you sip. Ick. Nice color, moderate head at best. Taste leaves something to be desired and lingers in a not so good way. Not terrible, but not especially good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very cloudy gold with a thin cream (almost tan) head. Hints of citrus and some other fruits I can’t put a finger on. Wonderfully bitter-sweet! It has a very nice balance. The body is somewhat light with a bit of a sticky texture that you would expect from an IPA, but the finish isn’t as bitter as I have come to expect from many IPAs. The last bit suites me just fine. I am not a big fan of tasting a beer 5-10min after I have taken a sip. I want a beer that hangs around just long enough for me to want that next sip. This one fits the bill quite nicely with as a very pleasing overall IPA.

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.
