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.

Poured at the Pound Ridge Harvest Festival. Aroma is clearly an IPA with Columbus Hops and a 70 IBU so you would think it was bitter and it is but in a great way that I consider the exact opposite of the finish on the Sierra Nevada Torpedo. Its not as complex as many of the other magic hat beers yet its an exceptionally drinkable IPA. Aroma is exceptionally strong for an IPA. Pour is Orange to Amber with a thick head that dissipates slowly. Immensely drinkable another Magic Hat winner!

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy bright amber with a medium foamy white head. Light carbonation and plenty of lacing. Semi-sweet fruity aroma with notes of light spices and biscuit. Taste is fairly bitter citrus rind with a somewhat dry finish. Not very refreshing. Not as good as I expected.

Bottle from IPA pack purchased at brewery. This is my least favorite from the pack, but it's still an excellent IPA. I find this one a little too bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Style et résumé: IPA simple.
Comment: En fût chez Magic Hat.
Portrait: Une robe pâle avec une mousse blanche. Un nez mi-floral mi-agrumes avec une touche de malt blond. Une bouche simple avec des saveurs d’agrume. Une légère amertume est présente en finale.
Note: 6+/10

SlovakSniper (4697) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
En fût sur place. Parfums floraux et citronnés avec une dose contrôlée de malts. Au goût, fruits et fleurs, fine résine, céréales secondaires. Corps moyen et actif. Finale amère et acidulée. Bien correct.

Ed5388 (3000) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2015
12oz bottle that I found rotting in the back of my fridge. Courtesy of dmac I believe. Pours a crystal clear light golden orange with 2 fingers of frothy white head. Aroma of old grains and rotting citrus, with some weird yeast notes in the finish. Taste of bad lemons, citrus skins, caramel malt, yeast, and honey. Some medicinal notes as well. Meh

MarinEvelyn (786) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Fruity, hoppy aroma and taste. A little creamy, frothy, bitter finish. Some malt. Fairly light, nothing too strong way or another that sticks out.

beerbaaron (1926) - Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Almost clear light orange golden, small white head. Pine. Citrus. Floral. Caramel. Medium plus bittersweet. A solid brew, but not really my thing.

raphael (1121) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2015
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.
