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.

Jeebus christ Magic Hat, I wanted a beer not a yeast sample. Straight up one on appearance for clumps of yeast floating around in bottle. Donít be fooled, its just plain sloppy brewing. Aroma is mildly citrus but faint. Some hoppy brightness but some soapyness as well. Not very impressed at all.

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

Fruity, hoppy aroma and taste. A little creamy, frothy, bitter finish. Some malt. Fairly light, nothing too strong way or another that sticks out.

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.
