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.

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

HeistAlmighty (1155) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
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.

Bottle smells tastes of citrus resin puke. Gross beer yellow not much head. Crap

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.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2012
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.

smith4498 (3069) - Miami, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
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.

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 16, 2012
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.

daniellunsford (105) - - NOV 12, 2012
Pineapple and citrus on the nose. Pours a golden orange with little head. Fresh light pine on the palate with a touch of bitter hops on the finish. I nice light ipa, very sessionable even at 6%abv.

maxwelldeux (3806) - Everett, Washington, USA - NOV 6, 2012
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.

queenholly (3019) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2012
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.
