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.

Merrill (79) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2009
aroma of lemon and cotton candy with notes of papaya and mandarin orange. Light hoppy acid with a soft pillow of malt, nearly able to balance the bitter, No lame attempt - this is a real player. Like many others in this class, thiereís more hops than they know whta to do with. Drinkable wierh a finish hta has some combined fruit and hop bitterniess theat is not at all cloying

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2012 Slight hop presence in the aroma, with a pleasant yeast aroma to compliment, but not a standard black ipa aroma. Taste is bitter and roasty. Palate and carbonation is in line for an ipa. After the beer warms up the chocolaty malt comes through in the aroma and flavor.

schlitzfaced (78) - Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
poured from bottle out of ""night of the living dead variety pack". yellow hazy color with thin white head. Aroma is light hops with dry lemon taste. Not the big Hop bite I was looking for. Not bad, just so so. Love a lot of other Magic Hat stuff.

beermanusa (77) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Light amber, 2 finger head that leaves light lacing. Smell is dominated by the hops with pine and citrus (mainly grapefruit) standing out. Taste is bitter grapefruit with a little bit of pine and herbal hop flavors. Not extremely hoppy for an IPA, but has a solid bitterness without a lot of sweet to balance. Very drinkable.

Hi.P.A. pours a hazy orange hue and features a frothy white head. Aroma of citrus and fresh hops. The beer has a real earthy character that is rich in floral hops along with sour grapefruit notes. An apple flavor emerges as well. High, fizzy carbonation tickles the roof of the mouth, which is common among most Magic Hat brews. The end of the sip is airy and dry.One of the better Magic Hat beers Iíve had.

On tap @ The Edge in Wintergreen Va. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. Smells of citrus and lightly floral notes. Tastes of hops with a slight bitterness and a clean finish. Standard IPA, nothing special.

penguinjive7 (72) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Pours a nice golden color with about two fingers of head. Smell is rather floral with citrus and a bit of earthyness as well The first flavor to hit is a strong grapefruit hop flavor followed by a ver small bit of grassyness. Malt balance comes in in the finish, especially as it warms. A bit of the floral tone from the spell is present but just lightly in the finish. This is light and dry in the mouth, gets more heavy and cloying as it warms. Another solid brew form Magic Hat. Very drinkable although I don’t know that I’d have more than one or two in a row. I wish they would make this one year round... Reviewed on: 05-12-2008

Tasted from bottle, from variety pack. 8/10/13. A nice ipa with a medium hop finish. Piney smell to it.

hopnpop (69) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Appropriate copper color, great head retention, pleasant citrusy aroma, good mouth feel. This IPA disppoints, however, due to its strong, lingering malt aftertaste.
