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.

Bought a case of this a while back on sale and really liked it. Poured a hazy orange yellow with nice while frothy head. Aroma bit piney and resiny with hint of orange. Flavor has nice malt base with a piney resiny essence and a dull warming alcohol presence. Bit bitter on the backside but not overly much. Nice balance.

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.

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

bottled - pale golden color. Decent head. Refreshing, not super hoppy. Not much aroma. Cool label.

MarinEvelyn (741) - 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 (1846) - 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 (1090) - 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.

dmac (5093) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 25, 2015
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.

12oz bottle. Looks light. Aroma of floral and lightly bitter hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not terrible.
