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.

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.

pivo (2626) - GERMANY - JUL 1, 2004
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 (1977) - 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.

Pours cloudy amber out of the 22oz bottle with a average white head. Taste was hoppy with some more hops. Nothing much other than hops in this one. However, I like hops, so this beer was decent. Light body, kind of watered down. Slight citrus taste, less than other IPAís.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2004 First off, I love West Coast IPA’s and anything less is just, less. Saying that, this stuff was a bit sweet although it did have a somewhat hoppy taste. Just not enough hops that I like. Nice presentation and head retention though.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Mondial de la Biere 2004. Golden amber colour with a frothy white head. Cask-like appearance. Piny, citrus, minty, almost eucalyptus aroma. Flavour starts slightly toasty and minty, finishing with a pleasant lingering piny and grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied and juicy.
