Alright, I’m having this one labeled "Encore" in the Magic Hat’s 2012 Wintertime 12 pack... it filled my glass with a cloudy golden brew thst hsd a tall white head and the aroma of bread and bananas. Tastewise, it is somewhat lacking in body, but is still enjoyable.
12oz bottle with the encore lable. pours out hazy copper topped with a white head. Nose is tangerine citrus wheat and grain. Taste is more of the light citrus hops some grass and wheat. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent looking burnt orange to yellow color with a slim finger’s worth of sharply dissipating white bubbly head. Barely any foam and barely any lacing.
The smell started off with a spritzy sharp sweet wheat, delicate floral tones (but super dry). And then some burnt malts.
The taste was mainly the same bringing the wheat right on into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs at a decent pace along my tongue, some sharpness.
Overall, acceptable, but nothing over the top. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Lightly hazed straw color with a moderate off-white head. Aromas of flour glue, wheat, citric zest and pulp. Candy-like citrus flavors jump to the forefront. Light wheat in the background. This one give me another example of an American wheat that I have a hard time embracing. So little character. 3/10

12oz bottle. Floater-laden golden tone with variegated, off-white bubbles. Dulled hop aroma. Dried, green grassy and citrus peel flavor. A bit flat in mouthfeel. raymow (1602) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2015
bottled - nice orangey color but odd aroma. Decent flavor (not very hoppy though for an IPA). Refreshing.

Unclear yellow orange color. Frothy white head. Pretty sweet. Hoppy. Caramel. Tangerine. Pineapple. Mild to moderate pepperiness. Semi dry. Low to medium bitterness. Not bad. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2015
fairly carbonated, decent head. Taste is hoppy, a little citrus, greens (grass, straw) JStax (6345) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2015
12 ounce bottle. The beer is a hazed copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has grassy pine. The taste is mildly bitter and a bit resinous. Medium body and medium carbonation. samsmith33 (772) - - JUL 26, 2015
4 magic hat ipa’s side by side. 1 Electric Peel, 2 Encore (odd notion, wheat), 3 Lucky Kat, 4 HIPA.
Encore is smooth. Wheat balances the sharp ipa flavors. Taste and Aroma are pleasant , but not very strong.

12oz bottle with the "Encore" label. This one had been sitting around in the fridge for awhile as I figured it would be disappointing but it’s not bad. In fact, one of the better Magic Hat’s I’ve had in awhile.
