On tap at Eli Cannon's in Middletown, CT. Looking orangey gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is an onslaught of hops. Very herbal and almost pot-like. One of those american high alpha hops, heavy handed smelling. Flavor is all hops. Really no malt to speak of, body is amazingly light for the alcohol content, and all hop bitterness. Very herbal, slightly grassy. Hops are brutish and not very clean tasting. It's bitter, but I don't really think it's very balanced or really all that great. I'd like way, way more body, some estery fruit for complexity, and some other kind of hop. I'd actually prefer cascade, since it's got a nice clean flavor to it and can serve to be very hoppy. Disappointing, considering I think Magic Hat does a good job with most of their beers.
Drank from the can. Light hop flavor crisp refreshing taste. Definitely would purchase and drink again.

Bottle from variety pack w chump. The label should say it’s like you’re sailing onward toward the DUSK of the mind. I feel the dawn to be more saison-y. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 29, 2016
On tap at magic hat brewing. Pours out a crisp clear pale golden topped with a white head. Nose is light hops pine and some citrus. Taste more of the light hope notes and some cereal. Pretty lacking in my opinion.

Malty aroma. Lighter yellow color and medium thickness. Bitter start and stale bitter finish

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy bright amber with a medium foamy white head. Light carbonation and plenty of lacing. Semi-sweet fruity aroma with notes of light spices and biscuit. Taste is fairly bitter citrus rind with a somewhat dry finish. Not very refreshing. Not as good as I expected. RxForHealth (180) - - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle from IPA pack purchased at brewery. This is my least favorite from the pack, but it's still an excellent IPA. I find this one a little too bitter.

Style et résumé: IPA simple. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2016
Comment: En fût chez Magic Hat.
Portrait: Une robe pâle avec une mousse blanche. Un nez mi-floral mi-agrumes avec une touche de malt blond. Une bouche simple avec des saveurs d’agrume. Une légère amertume est présente en finale.
En fût sur place. Parfums floraux et citronnés avec une dose contrôlée de malts. Au goût, fruits et fleurs, fine résine, céréales secondaires. Corps moyen et actif. Finale amère et acidulée. Bien correct.
