This pours a copper golden color. Nicely rounded floral aroma notes with some light citrusy hops and a light hoppy kiss on the flavor.

I haven't had much from Magic Hat, but the other brews I had were more enjoyable than this one. I did not care for this. In my opinion, there is nothing that really jumped out at me with this beer; it was borderline bland.

Pours a hazy deep gold/pale amber producing 2 fingers of foamy, shortlived, white head that recedes to a thick island cap leaving sheets, webs & streaks of lace. Aroma is mostly grapefruit, pineapple & hints of pine in terms of hops; pound cake and little caramel malt in a background of pilsner yeast. Taste is bready, lemon zest, resinous pine, tropical fruit, lager yeast & a little honey up front through mid-sip, finishes with a prominent grapefruit note becoming drier & more bitter with a rapidly diminishing bitter, but noticeably astringent, aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low moderate carbonation, silky & slightly creamy with a tongue coating bitterness that becomes an astringency on the back of the tongue & palate. Not really an IPA as it is made with lager rather than ale yeast. An interesting mixture of hops & yeast as are most of these IPLs.

1/19...pours copper gold, high white foam, over an inch and lasting. Pleasant hoppy nose, toffee, malty. Light citrus. Clean, crisp taste, honey, floral, quick fade before the bitter closes. Good carbonation buzz. Very good.
