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.

Bottle. Some great hoppiness in this nose. The taste is this quite bitter, which is what I want and expect from an IPA. A very nice example of the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fruity citrus hops and light bready malt aroma. Golden yellow with a moderate white head. Piney, juicy citrus hops, and faint malty flavor. Medium body, slight dry finish. Very hop forward. I thought it could have used a little more malt presence.

from bottle. pours an opaque straw golden yellow colour, thin head but it sticks around and laces the sides of the glass on the descent. fresh and fruity aroma, classic citrus flavours but predominant grapefruit i thought lingering, satisfying bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden amber with a white head that lasts til the end, dots of lace. This is a traditional, but well-done, IPA: good caramel malt with an infusion of floral hops that provides a superb balance. In the finish, the hops give way to a return to a slightly bitter malt. Good stuff. Recommended.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden beer with a white head. Aromas of floral hops and some tropical fruit. Tastes of mild floral/herbal hops, hints of spruce, and sweet grapefruit/other assorted citrus. Malts balance, and compliment the hops quite nicely. Hoppy, yet fruity sweet finish. This was quite nice, and enjoyable.
