muzzlehatch (4840) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 17, 2008
12 ounce bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (February 2008), served at cellar temperature in a Hair of the Dog glass. Clear bronze in color with a largish frothy off-white head that decays slowly and leaves thick lacing....pungent, spicy hops offer hints of wet cedar/pine resin, a bit of citrus, white pepper....the follow-through on the taste buds is solid, with light fruitiness offering just enough sweetness to counterbalance powerful dry woody bitterness up until the finish, which is quite sharp....could be a bit fuller overall, and the carbonation is a bit weak and diffuse; but IPAs and pale ales are something Magic Hat seems to be able to do pretty well, and this is no exception. A reasonable replacement for Fat Angel, I suppose.

Pours a medium hazy golden yellow. Aromas of citrus hops and a touch of pale malts. Flavor is crisp bitter citrus hop with a nice lingering aftertaste.

kramer (5914) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear bright copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded fairly quickly. The nose is malt forward with caramel and toffee, a lesser amount of piney hops. The flavor is a bit boring, some sweet malt at it’s base, light to moderate bitterness, a rather nondeScript hop profile. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Meh, this was alright, but nothing that stands out as a whole.

i keep giving them chances though I don’t think anything has ever stood out. at least they’re cheap. an ipa or imperial pale...whatever...with little bitterness and hop presence. Not bad but boring.

raphael (1173) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Yellow into orange barely a head, though seems carbonated in the mouth. resin, hay & caramel aroma. Flavor of orange, pine tingle, caraml. overall delicacy to it, sessionish.

4 magic hat ipa’s side by side. 1 Electric Peel, 2 Encore (odd notion, wheat), 3 Lucky Kat, 4 HIPA. Flatened quickly. Tastes a bit watery compared to others. Faint ash in aftertaste drops this a bit. Not great.

Rating from 4-20-2010....12 oz. bottle...copper with a beige head....the aroma is so light its almost non-existent...a whiff of malt and a whiff of citrus & some metal :(...there is not much to this beer, the closest to hops I get are in the mild bitter finish...there is a lot of metallic flavor throughout this beer....and its watery
