3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very fresh bottle. Pours a lovely unclear golden with a huge super thick frothy white foamy head that just sits there without at all fading. Nice fresh spicy floral and peachy hop aroma with a bit of sweet malty caramel. Two note first taste, very metallic bitter and sugary sweet. Watery mouthful softer but fizzy carbonation. Gets quite salty, salty grapefruit is what it tastes like with slightly toasted malts and a touch of honey. Really nice smelling IPA.

pours a hazy golden color with a medium off white head leaving lots of lacing. you see some sediment floating around but i shook the bottle at end of pour. the aroma is mostly floral hops and some citrus juices. the taste is citrusy up front with some hop bitterness in it as well. worth a try for ipa lovers.

Good head, nice lacing, golden amber. Phenolic odor. Smells like a band-aid. That?s what phenolic means, my neighbor just told me. Doesn?t taste phenolic though. Tastes weak.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: November 17, 2013... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky Tavern pint... OCCASION: one sink leak fixed--tomorrow, the toilet unclogs!... APPEARANCE: golden yellow body--quite light (and bright!) for an IPA--and a thick milky white head; equally thick, cirrus wisps of lacing... AROMA: quite a fragrant floral bouquet with banana, clove and citrus zest--attractive and yet appropriate (!) for an IPA... PALATE: a bit acidic late, but overall a drinkable, persuasively medium-bodied ale that sits well in the mouth...TASTE: immediate punch of mango and peach gives way to pinecone; a comfortable, fruity, fittingly rewarding profile...OVERALL: The fall beers in this mix pack fall short, but the IPA wins out as distinguishing and desirable--this will b e my Magic Hat go-to in the future...
