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, it’s an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. It’s the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Cask: Light orange. Lychee in the aroma and finish. Some bitter notes in palate and a combined bitter-sweet aftertaste.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Citrus and pine hop aromas. Hazy light light orange/tan colour with thin white head that dissipates fairly quickly with some lacing. Lots of citrusy hop flavour with pine notes as in the aroma and an underlying sweetness. Alcohol not apparent in the flavour at all. Body is medium, perhaps could use a bit more mouthfeel to support the hops. Definitely balanced towards the hops, this is quite the tasty IPA. On tap at the brewery and bottled. Resampled at Mondial 2004 and I still love this one.

Poured a reddish copper color with a small white head that left some lacing on the glass. Grapefruit, pine hop aroma. Citrusy hop taste and a rather weak mouthfeel.

sloth (2814) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2003
Small offwhite head, lasting. Hazy orange color. Somewhat piney, resiny hop nose. Medium body. Lots of oily, resiny hops. Grapefruity, citrusy sticky ole hops! A touch of malt in the background. Finish is dry with a good freakin hop bite. Fairly impressive for Magic Hat.

(Bottle) This IPA makes your tongue go wild! Every taste will bring out new interesting flavors. One of the more unique tasting IPAs I have tried. Will have to try again!

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2003
Crunchy pine and grapefruit hops hanging on the palate, culminating in a dry bark ending...Malt is non-consequential it seems, this a hop quaffer...As pleasantly sense numbing and thirst quenching as Rogue's Brutal Bitter...

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2003
Hippie Alert label!Appearance is a pretty appealing cloudy amber with a decent white head at first that diminishes very fast to become a ring around the glass. Aroma is strange, weird hopping. I don't know if that's typical to Columbus character, but there was a "litter" feel in the nose, increasing as it warms. It was not totally unpleasant, just unexpected. The mouthfeel is creamy, a medium body that slips through the mouth naturally. The hop attack is honest, floral, but it didn't propose enough malt balance to top its class. An okay session beer that seems to be made without any special efforts.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2004 Piney hops aroma and flavor, rich malt backbone to balance it out. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Nothing really to complain about.

Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head. Moderate hop aroma compared to what I was expecting. Resiny/piney hop flavour with some citrus sweetness in the finish. I like the fact that it is not too over-the-top (something that ruins many an Imperial IPA), but it could use a bit more complexity and aroma.
