I was surprised to see this on shelves. I haven't been keeping up with Magic Hat.

Pours a nice reddish-gold with a frothy head into my glass.

A good balance of citrus, especially grapefruit in the nose. There's also a grainy texture to the malt.

Lots of conflicting tastes upfront. First of all, you have citrusy, grassy hops competing fiercely against the buttery, grainy malt bill. The result is a jumbled mess in the mouth.

This carries over to the mouthfeel as well. It's just not very pleasant. The high level of carbonation makes it almost unbearable.

I'm not sure how Magic Hat let such a weak, miserable example of this style out of their tanks. I have had several other examples that kick the ass of this pathetic shit, such as Brewmaster Mike's Citra Mantra (represent!).

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

From 07/24/14 notes. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

a - Pours a hazy deep amber color with one to two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sweet fruity malts, floral hops , honey, bready malts, pale malts, and earthy malts. Decent, maltier than expected.

t - Tastes of grains, wheat , dough , bready malts, light fruit malts, and light floral hops. Quite malty, ever moreso than the nose.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Easy to drink but too watery.

o - Overall not a great beer. For a beer toting itself as a hoppy beer it is veyr malty. Wouldn't seek it out again.
