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.

Its just amazing how much variety there is within the IPA style. There are your insanely bitter, crips IPAs (Speakeasy Big Daddy), your full-bodied, big-flavored IPAs (Lagunitas, Celebration Ale, Hop Devil) and then this kind of IPA: mellow, perfectly balanced, and sweet. Orange-flavored malt dominate this brew to start, but by the finish all you can think about is the extremely bitter hop finish. You can also tell this beer is dry-hoppedfrom the spectacular aroma. I would call this more of a buffed-up ESB than an IPA, personally. Truly fantastic, folks.

A very well done IPA, looked good in the glass, excellent aroma, and well balanced with solid malt and hop flavors.

One of Magic Hat's best brews year-round brews (Bob's First Ale being the other). Malt nose with nice hop accents in the finish.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 Amber-beige colour. Light woody hop notes in the aroma with a whole grain bread background. Moderate bitterness. Quite woody. Slightly watery texture. Ok, but that’s it.

I think my favorite of all Magic hat's beers, Great nose, malt with a bit of the hop flowers hiding underneath. The finish is a big hop spicy bite that is quite interesting. Above average like ability.
