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, 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.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, - OCT 28, 2012
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.

Bought a Magic Hat IPA sampler in Hudson. A little thick in the mouth. Deep yellow with moderate white head. Flavor is resin with some lemon back, further caramel. lighter aroma, resin & caramel. Inoffensive, flavorful enough. Balanced finish.

A piney and citrus IPA more on par with an average pale ale than a good IPA.

12oz bottle via mixed 12pack. Poured a clear deep rusty amber with a smaller mostly white head. Aroma/flavor is loads of grains, lightly sweet, dough, some citrus rind, flowers. Sort of bland overall. Meh.

From bottle. Ok. Everything about is okay or medium. Aroma is subdued and taste is a bit grassy and body seems thin. There is a very slight tang of citrus bitterness but pales in comparison to many hop bomb ipa’s
