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.

12 ounce bottle. The beer is a hazed copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has grassy pine. The taste is mildly bitter and a bit resinous. Medium body and medium carbonation.

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.

Overall impressed with this blend. Hop arms f citrus and pine very evident. Some phenolics from wheat in flavor and light hop bitterness.

tfontana (182) - 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 (2214) - 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.

SDalkoholic (2237) - Linda Vista, California, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle from F&E: Aroma is faint with a light smell of grains, honey, and touch of hop. Appeared a dark golden honey color liquid while there was a monstrous development of foam head on top. The drink is bitter at first from a modest hop profile, but then delivers a shocking flavor of tartness as if eating unripe fruit. The taste of the beer almost comes across as offensive because of a putrid flavor from the wheat grain used. The aftertaste tasted like paper money. Yuck!

One of the better Magic Hat beers Iíve tasted in a long time. Nice combination of a wheat and a pale ale. I tasted a lot of fruity notes, along with citrus, light hops, grass, a hint of banana and some spices.
