3.4/5 rDev +3%
new summer seasonal is probably underrated here, its pretty nice on tap, and while obviously a step or two below the quality of say a jacks abby ipl, I think its a pretty reasonable take on the style. darker than most lagers, deep honey colored and a little hazy. head is tall and frothy in my pint glass, it looks real nice. nose is generic but hoppy like an ipa, they certainly didn't short cut the india part of this. some bittering citrus peel notes to the finish but mostly sappy bitterness, lots of texture for a lager, which I like a lot. well carbonated and refreshing, but not finishing up as quick as other lagers. the hops outlast the attempted quick finish, it doesn't work out real well, but it doesn't affect the overall enjoyment of this beer, just makes it feel more like an ipa. not sure why all the negative feedback on magic hat lately, I think they still do a really good job with a lot of their beer, and have enjoyed most of the new releases...

4/5 rDev +21.2%
12 oz bottle in a lager glass.
A - Hazy amber with a good amount of carbonation. One finger head, good retention. Nice lacing.
S - Fruit and malt
T - Malty throughout. Starts with fruit and finishes quite nicely with tangy citrus hops.
M - Medium
O - Unlike most of the lackluster posts I've read, I really like this and feel it is an under-rated brew. Go get some! Cheers!
