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.

LiteWait (267) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 25, 2011
labeled as "Encore IPA" in Winter land sampler pack. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. A very nice sheet of lacing. Grapefruit hop aroma. zesty from the wheat with notes of baking soda. Flavor is BIG on cascade hops. Lighter body with high carbonation. Dry finish that does have bitterness but not real bad on my palate. The wheat helps knock down the bitterness. Tastes like grapefruit juice with a little carbonation. Well done! Yummy. Thanks AirForceHops!

4 magic hat ipa’s 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 it’s not bad. In fact, one of the better Magic Hat’s I’ve had in awhile.

tfontana (211) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle from Foods Plus, Plaistow NH. Aroma is resin hops. Appearance is hazy golden orange with minimal head with minimal retention and insignificant lacing. First blast of taste was of cat-box but then never got that again. Was lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation and mild bitter finish. Overall, a slightly above middle of the road IPA.

rougeau13 (2237) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Hazy bright orange-amber with a lasting off-white, moderately lacing head. Aroma of honey, bread, and fallen leaves with a touch of citrus. Taste is hoppy wheat; grainy and a little fruity and more bitter than sweet. Light-medium bodied and slightly dry.
