COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, it’s an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. It’s the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

schlitzfaced (92) - Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
poured from bottle out of ""night of the living dead variety pack". yellow hazy color with thin white head. Aroma is light hops with dry lemon taste. Not the big Hop bite I was looking for. Not bad, just so so. Love a lot of other Magic Hat stuff.

zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle from Publix Supermarket, Kissimmee, Florida. This is a hazy pale yellow beer with sweet topical fruit flavours, sharp citrus notes and a grapefruit finish. Excellent!

Big fresh hop flavor and aroma. Piney, slight floral character. Poor is light gold, very clear. Thin, quickly dissipating head. basic malt. Not a lot of specialty grain in this beer. Overall good beer. I am drinking this pretty fresh for a VT beer shipped to TX. Best beer out of the fall variety pack.

Drank out of the bottle from the night of the living dead 12 pack. Smells of bitter and citrusy hops, the smell is very large. It taste fairly bitter with little no balance with malts, citrus and a bit of lemon also. Finish is very dry and overall not a very enjoyable IPA for me, not enough balance

Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2013
October 2011. From a mixed case of Magic Hat brews. Poured amber color. Caramel, pine and hoppy aromas. Flavors add citrus and more caramel. Not bad, but nothing special either.

3.2
AWISLguy (3109) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle from BrookFalls Discount. Pours a pale golden with a white head. Aroma has floral hops and fruit. Taste is of fresh fruit - strange flavored ones (mango? passionfruit? pineapple?) - and some citrus and some toffee. Light to medium bodied. Slightly sticky and fairly balanced between the fruitiness and the malt side. Not very IPA-ish -- more an APA, IMO. Definitely based off of Magic Hat 9, as the similarities exist.

2.9
Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pours a light copper color with a fruity aroma and light spice. Taste is a bit thin but overall tasty. A slight bready and malt flavor with a toasty palate. Not a typical IPA, little to no bitterness throughout. a thirst quenching beer.

3.9
stantheman (1050) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
Small bottle at Hops in New Westminster. A very pale golden amber color with low carbonation. Bitter grapefruit bite on the nose and tongue. A bit of malt lurking in the background. Bitter finish. Nice.

This’d be a killer summer beer! Sometimes life bites, but in a good way, as in "good beer has bite".

3.5
RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Pours a hazy gold with a frothy white head and good lacing throughout. Aroma is somewhat yeasty with stone fruit and sweet grain. Medium bodied. Fruity body, again a little yeasty with a bitter grapefruit finish. Good.
