3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: very hazy orange color with some particles floating around. Thereís a soap-like head thatís about two fingers or so in height. The lacing is decent
Smell: Soapy hops -- really not much malt here, but it smells average.
Taste/feel: On the front thereís some massive citrus -- grapefruit sorts. Very bitter. Almost a medicinal flavor in there. The aftertaste is spicy with not much malt to balance it out. Decent beer, but itís just not balanced enough for me.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
