This unique surprise cross-pollinates the classic American wheat beer with an American Pale Ale. What grows next is a fruitfully unfiltered union with a delightful hop aroma, a pleasant citrus hop flavor, and a beautifully balanced finish that leaves other ales hoppy green with springtime envy.

Pours a hazy orange color that reminds me of an ipa. Has a medium sized off white head. Smells of wheat and hops. Taste is hoppier than I would expect from a wheat ale however the bottle which I got said ipa on it. That makes a bit more sense than wheat ale. has some wheat flavors mixed in with a bunch of citrus notes.

bottle pours hazy orange with a tall white head. Aroma is strong citrus and pine hop notes with thin floral notes. Flavor is pleasant, well balanced toast and nutty malts with plenty of pine. Only faint wheat in the finish. I like it.

just a very delightful brew in my mind. here we have a wheat brew at least as how it looks and with a kids cereal type malt syrup flavor. sweet and ripe with tastes of orange candy grapefruit and 7 up soda added to a powerful hop presence of pine with a bit of chalk. seems silly but it worked for me. smart sweet tart finish and add pez candy to the mix. demonstrative and happy it is flowery with a bit of spice. thanx magic hat !

glennmastrange (2489) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. moderate malt and hop aromas of roasted, pine and grapefruit peel, light soap for the yeast with hints of pepper and date. Head is large, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy, light amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic and finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and finishes lightly astringent. An okay IPA, but a little too acidic and not any sweetness kept it from rising above my "15 point, I’d definitely drink this again" overall score.

They call this Encore too, like the hotel in Vegas, but not as cool. A wheat IPA now? Well this is an experience Id soon like to forget. At first I was reminded of the HIPA, but then reality set in and this is not that good. Color does resemble a mix between a pale ale and some forging background of wheat, but that does not sit right with me. I like the IPAs strong and masterful, this is not. But I have had worse and magic hat is a great beer staple in any beer lovers journey. So I enjoyed that good old northeast feeling while sipping away.

scottw86 (1151) - Maryland, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle labeled "Encore." Poured a very hazy orange with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is quite hoppy with some sugary citrus notes. Taste is slightly watery, but with lots of hops. Not a whole lot of wheat flavor, pretty much just grapefruit, apricot, and hops. Despite being a little one-dimensional it is crisp and drinkable. Not bad.
