look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dream Machine from Magic Hat Brewing Company, deemed an "India Pale Lager" on the label. Poured from the bottle into a glass, this brew's very,very light tan head leaves very fast amidst the carbonation. Lacing is very decent. Medium amber body.

I smell hops AND malt. Let's see if the taste delivers what my schnoz is picking up.

Yes, sir this sure does have a pleasant mix of hop bitterness and sweet malt smoothness. I'm very impressed. Not much hop aftertaste or afterbite. Not even after dry wafting. This is quite refreshing

Moutfeel is also rather nice, no hop resin here.

3.75 overall, a favorable slot. I was very impressed on how this brew truly DOES maintain a great balance of IPA and lager tastes and sensations. I will probably buy this again.

3.23/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Dark honey, and somewhat cloudy, with a quarter inch quickly dissipating head, but good lacing. A fresh scent, but nothing of note on the nose. Nice carbonation, and drinkable. A nice hop bitterness that lingers, but lacks the fruitiness of the IPAs I prefer. A decent beer.

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

Magic Hat Dream Machine IPL has a thin-to-medium off-white head, a mostly clear, copper, bubbly appearance, and some decent lacing left behind. The aroma is of hop oil and sweet grain. Taste is of floral hops, some hop resin, sweet grain, and medium-baked bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Magic Hat Dream Machine IPL finishes crisp, easy going, and refreshing.
