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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2012 Bottle. The pour was a rich golden honey color with a large (2-3 finger) rocky white head that mostly diminished into a fluffy puddled residue that created excellent sheets of lace on the glass. The aroma upfront was bold and hoppy of a citrus hop, a straw like malt and a moldy yeast with a notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a decent dose of wheat. The taste was very yeasty and a bit malty with a note of caramel from the onset. It then progressed into a nice bitter hoppy flavor with a strong citrus note and a bit of wheat at the end. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow, allowing for the hoppy grapefruit taste to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was a bit heavier than light in body with a nice dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall an IPA with a really nice wheat characteristic and a wonderful hoppy aftertaste.

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.

BroSpud (1948) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 15, 2015
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.
