look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A- A seems to be average in upstate ny. Looks much like a copper-penny, with some more watery notes. Pours with a nice head into an imperial pint, but then dissipates quickly with little to no lacing. Think half dead Yeungling, or slightly lighter BearNaked.

S- It smells sweet and spicy, just the way I want it. However, I feel that with the label IPL it should boast more than 50 ibu's. I mean, I litterally have to bury my face into it for any inkling of hops.

T-buttery, with the right balance of spice. Wait, is that dry-hopped peach cobler? Hahah. There's so much going on here that it's hard to make out, but not in a bad way. It certainly harnesses the #9 madness that Magic Hat drinkers have grown to love.

M- average, if that. It feels almost slimy when you really let it sit there . At the same time, the beer has drinkabillity... there's no need to let it "swim". Really, I just want Edward Marrie Cullen to drop in and say "sparkles"... I am disappoint. -_-.

O- not a terrible beer, but I've had hoppier lagers that didn't boast the ipl label.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Amber color with a thicker white head that lingered. Lots of carbonation. Medium lacing on the glass.

Smell: Hops and citrus, maybe some pine notes in the background.

Mouthfeel/Taste: A little rought medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops with a subtle sweet citrus on the after taste.

Overall: Not bad. I would have this one again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Straw yellow colored with fine bubbles rising up to a white tightly bubbled head that recedes quickly. Aroma of creamed corn and cotton candy, floral notes. Flavors of honey malt, peppery spiciness, some burnt rubber offering sharp bitterness. Hops are subtle, somewhat floral and spicy. Mouthfeel is a bit slick, but finishes tingly. Overall an okay beer.

Look great in the glass with excellent clarity, plenty of visible carbonation and a large, creamy bone-colored head. The head is exceptionally durable.

Aroma: fruity (citrus) APA with a solid malt base. Approaches 4.
Flavor: followas aroma. Great balance. Mildly bitter.

Feel: excellent - lively but soft. Medium body. Smooth.

O: an exceptional version of this style.
