DocLock (9984) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2012
750 cc from Caponeís. Pours dark straw colored with 2-finger white head that laces well. Nose is earthy tart fruit, hopcitrus, caro syrup. Tastes sweet, with notes of orange marmalade, spicy peppery notes, and hopcitrus. A bit cloying as it warms, this one is a bit muddled and non-cohesive.

jredmond (7458) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Draft at pony bar. Pours a clear yellow with white head. Aroma is light pils and sweet grass. Mouthfeel is medium with straight grass and booze. God damnit, magic hat! Hadnt had a MH in a long time and this doesnít make me want to try another one any time soon.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Where and how: NY state , bottle 750 ml
Aroma average intensity. Soft malty feel with good but not bold herbal hop feel. Slight touch of caramel, hop acid and red apple. Dry alcohol on top a la Polish Mocne.
Appearance :3-
Top: medium sized, creamy whit top that created nice rings on glass.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : medium bodied, with tad lighter yet well paired to body carbonation. Smooth clean top.
Taste: hop presence is far more accented in taste than in aroma with elements of sap. Nice refined bitterness with solid base of malts.
Other notes solid drinkable with warming heat.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle, caged and corked. Deep, dark gold-bronze pour. Thin but sudsy head. The aroma is simply big, sweet and biscuity. The beer drinks thusly. Rich with a definite alcohol presence, thickly malty and bready. Good stuff though. (#5424, 2/2/2014)

AirForceHops (6181) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 9, 2014
2 oz. sample at the brewery. Light hazy gold color. Aroma is Saaz and a grassiness. Light dough.

Flavor is ok. Wheat base with a nice lingering bitterness from the herbal/ grassy hop with notes of hay. Medium body with proper carbonation. Solid amount of bitterness that lingers well after the sip. Pretty decent.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at Eddies. Filtered looking orange-tan body below a steady creamy white head. Nice crisp hop aroma, but a little fruitier taste than I would want for the style. Noble hops carry it. Nice fruity depth. Above average for a Magic Hat. Really grows on you the more you sip on it.

ben4321 (5691) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Location: 750 ml bottle from State Line, 7/31/12, Rating # 2300

Aroma: The nose has some fruit, pilsner malts, grass, earth, and floral notes
Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a frothy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes medium-plus sweet, similar to the nose, with a light hops/light hot malt finish
Palate: Itís medium-plus bodied, has a smooth, creamy, slightly sticky feel, and finishes mildly hot and dry
Overall Impression: I tend to be fairly unexcited by much of what Iíve tried from Magic Hat, and while this wasnít incredible, I think itís a top Magic Hat offering for me. You know that typical MH taste? I didnít get much of that here, so thatís nice... While this still wasnít a great beer, itís good to see a generally mediocre brewery showing a little bit of improvement. Thatís about as complimentary as I can get on this one.
