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.

Not as hoppy as I expected. Otherwise this was a good beer. This beer poured with a small head and had a little lacing. It was cloudy orange in color and had a slight orangy-hop smell to it. The taste was slightly hoppy, but as I said before, not quite what I expect from an IPA. This is more of a pale ale to me.

Pungent hoppy aroma, also sweet and dusty. Orange body with a leg-y head. Very bitter with long bitter finish. Flat carbonation. "Oh man" (pivo!) smelling the beer. Nice lable!

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2003 A great IPA. I haven't met a Magic Hat I didn't like, maybe with the exception of Hocus Pocus. (PS...My cat loves IPAs, and he really liked this one).

Nice English-style IPA. Malty aroma, but also some pine. Good hoppiness throughout -- very well balanced. Quite bitter aftertaste. At times it seemed a little watery/thin. Overall not my favorite, but still a decent brew.

Not bad, though I found it wanting for hops. Very drinkable, but lacking that special difference I expect in a great IPA. Not as floral and not hoppy.

Nice malty hop aroma. Good balance in the body. Finishes a little to the dry side. A very drinkable IPA.

A nice rich hoppy taste. rerate: tried it again after having a few more IPAs under my belt. It has a chewieness that is reminiscent of Samuel Smiths, but it isnt nearly as smooth.
