3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from the four type sampler case. Weak on hops and flavor, somewhat mediocre. I think I was disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
DATE TASTED: June 4, 2015... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... OCCASION: Cavs/Warriors Game One--let the madness begin!... APPEARANCE: dark, orange amber body that shows slow , sporadic effervescence; soft, creamy white head settles to a thin, palpable lacing... AROMA: robust Cascade meets the nostrils; caramel and toasted cereal stand up and belie the IPA indication....PALATE: medium-bodied, creamy, and slightly fizzy; bitterness late but not offensive nor impressive... TASTE: mellow, slightly hoppy, significantly malty--deep caramel and cereal punches an impression in the tastebuds with pleasant sweetness; the odd finish--a Magic Hat staple--is found in the hops attempting to climb into the wisdom teeth; a smooth balance is struck... OVERALL: a mildly entertaining, slightly less offbeat take on a standard than I am used to from Magic Hat; the malt is a welcome push on the flavor; the Cascade is diminished to the point one wonders, "Is this an IPA?"

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear amber with a white head. Nose is faint caramel malt. Body is medium. Taste is very light IPA. Hops are there but lack the bite of fuller IPAs. This similar to their #9 Not Quite Pale Ale. This Not Quite IPA but a nice drink. 12 oz bottle in the Summer variety pack

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer did not scream IPA to me, more akin to a wheat beer imo. Nice amber with light head. Tastes of wheat, heavy malt, light citrus, slight bitterness. Not for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad IPA. Also not a risk-taking IPA. Caramel malt, earthy hop, some citrus, pine. Basic but enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is amber yellow with a lingering and foamy white head. My nose picks up perfume in the aroma more than the roasted pale malts. The perfume is floral like. Medium body. This has a unique bitterly hopped taste to it that has a minor toasted character to start but the hops linger at the end.

A fine ale. I'm not sure if it's an IPA or not, since the hop meter has moved over the years. Orange and citrus with some malt and bitterness at the finish. Ok, but not my favorite.

Was one of my favorite ipas back in the day guess my palate changed over the last 5 years. Smell is very orangey with slight notice of pine near the end. Good body nice orangey citrus flavor with weak bit at the finish. Diffently wish it had the old lable on the bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of citrusy hops, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy hops, caramel malt and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long, dry. Overall, good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It has a hazy amber to coppery colored body with an off white head. The head is tall thick and foamy. It has good retention and keeps a nice small cap on the beer until the last drop. On the way down the glass it makes some cool lacing. The nose has a solid hop aroma featuring citrusy/herbal and musty notes over light pale maltiness and bready yeast. Its medium bodied with a light bready maltiness supporting some decent hop bitterness. In the bitterness there are notes of herbal tea hops, citrus and some musty hops as well. The texture is smooth and firm with a nice level of carbonation.
