COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

My bottle says Encore. Hazy orange-yellow color. Enticing spicey/citrus aroma, Iíd alway like it a bit stronger. Spritzy with bright fruit flavors on the tongue. Firm bitter hops and a sweet finish that melts away, leaving me clapping for more. A really tasty and original take on an IPA.

Bulk_Carrier (3628) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent looking burnt orange to yellow color with a slim fingerís worth of sharply dissipating white bubbly head. Barely any foam and barely any lacing. The smell started off with a spritzy sharp sweet wheat, delicate floral tones (but super dry). And then some burnt malts. The taste was mainly the same bringing the wheat right on into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs at a decent pace along my tongue, some sharpness. Overall, acceptable, but nothing over the top.

JPDIPSO (5569) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Lightly hazed straw color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of flour glue, wheat, citric zest and pulp. Candy-like citrus flavors jump to the forefront. Light wheat in the background. This one give me another example of an American wheat that I have a hard time embracing. So little character. 3/10

12oz bottle. Floater-laden golden tone with variegated, off-white bubbles. Dulled hop aroma. Dried, green grassy and citrus peel flavor. A bit flat in mouthfeel.

bottled - nice orangey color but odd aroma. Decent flavor (not very hoppy though for an IPA). Refreshing.

4 magic hat ipaís side by side. 1 Electric Peel, 2 Encore (odd notion, wheat), 3 Lucky Kat, 4 HIPA. Encore is smooth. Wheat balances the sharp ipa flavors. Taste and Aroma are pleasant , but not very strong. Ok.

12oz bottle with the "Encore" label. This one had been sitting around in the fridge for awhile as I figured it would be disappointing but itís not bad. In fact, one of the better Magic Hatís Iíve had in awhile.
