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.

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

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle. Good nose of grassy fresh hops, dank almost, some honey and birch and pine scent as well. Crisp and moderately light on the tongue, some grassy honey flavors, light and refreshing, could almost convince me that itís a wheat hybrid at times except for the tangy bitterness. I thought this was a pretty decent IPA, meaning that at the very least it satisfied my hop cravings.

MartinT (8957) - 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...

KyotoLefty (8730) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 17, 2013
Bottled. Bright golden color with lace. Lemony nose, light bread, Sprite. Lemony flavor with light malts, nice bitter finish. Light and clean. Decent enough.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. Straw with a coarse bubbled, tufting head festooning the glass. Neat hop Punk IPA juiciness on the snout; grapefruit, passion fruit, tomato vine, lemon and lime wine gummage with a crumb of biscuit. Lean and spiky with a big slug of puckering, tonic water and grapefruit juice bitterness mellowed slightly by stewed tea, liquorice and honey-dabbed biscuit. Drinks like Punk- a big welcome surprise after the tipper that was #9.

Ibrew2or3 (7910) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Poured light copper with off white head that lasted less than a minute. Initially the aroma seemed slightly spicy like a chili pepper. Behind that is sweet maltiness. The taste starts with a medley of spices that I canít distinguish. I swear I taste chili powder. After that are light floral hoppiness and some sweet maltiness. Interesting brew.

djd07 (7908) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy yellow with a medium creamy white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a sweet hop and grapefruit. Thin mouthfeel with a light dry hop with floral and citrus and a nice dry finish. A good IPA from Magic Hat.

blipp (7775) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Hoppy nose with notes of flowers and fruit and even a hint of alcohol. Thin/medium body. Hops stick in your mouth. Taste is mostly orange and a bit peachy, with some other fruits. It sounds like a good combination, but it didnít really work for me. Bitter finish.

drowland (7713) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2011 8/11/11. 12oz bottle. Almost clear dark golden pour with a small, fluffy off-white head that fades but laces a ton. Old lady perfumey aroma with oxidation and an overload of caramel malt. Sweet perfumey flavor as well with a hint of dry grass. Blech.
