COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
...created to aid in deciphering the puzzles along life’s road, and interpreting signs in the voyages of the spirit. Brewed in homage to the wisdom of visionaries everywhere who blaze paths into uncharted territories. Our take on an India Pale Ale (IPA.) A deep golden amber ale with a rich up-front malty nose finishing with a big, hoppy bite. Dry-hopped to finish with a big fresh (Cascade) hop flavor. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting yeast.

Tap at brewery: Big hoppy aroma, but the body is overtaken by a dry bitterness without much malt backbone. Smooth and easy-drinking, but not what I'm looking for in an IPA.

Very nice IPA. Not outstanding, but always nice in a pinch. Never had a bad one.

Hoppy aroma, too bad the flavor doesn't live up to the promise. Good mouthfeel, but a little more carbonation would be nice. A well-intentioned IPA that could use a more complex hop character. The best Magic Hat brew I've tried.

by far best from this brewer I have sampled. Beautiful golden hue, small head but good lacing. I am an IPA afficianado and this is a good one. Plenty of hops but not over the top. I love cascade hops!

Not overly impressed. Too light for an IPA. Fair hopping, but not even close to being worth the 8 bucks I paid for the 6-pack.

The immediate aroma is of lychees. Quite floral. The moutfeel is softly carbonated, lightly citrusy and floral, with a touch of acidity. The flavour was less hoppy than the aroma suggested. A nice solid IPA, with a nice soft mouthfeel, enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Hoppy aroma. Taste wasn't as strong as most IPA's i've had recently. Bitter hops and oak was found in the taste. This was very refreshing though on a hot June day.

Only a medium amount of hoppiness for an IPA, but they pull it off very well. There's definitely a hint of fruit along with the hops. There isn't much maltiness at all, but that's a good thing, as it lets the hops come through. Fairly light, and very refeshing-a good beer for the summertime. On a side note, it's a bit overpriced. Magic Hat's packaging is an annoying gimmick; if they would put out 12-packs and price them the same as, say, long trail or shipyard, then I might actually buy their beers more often.

(Bottle) Orange/Amber body with a white head. Hoppy and orange nose. Super hoppy taste. So hopppy - I'll add anoth 'p'. Linguring bitterness. Very good.
