I remember when I first turned 21 about 3 and a half years ago Blind Faith was a regular fixture in the Magic Hat lineup. In my opinion they were also a very different (and much better) brewing operation back then. I am glad to see them bring this back in the midst of nixing classics from their lineup and replacing them with unworthy beer experiments.
A - Pours a hazy golden brown with a 2 finger creamy colored head. Good retention on the head and sticky lacing.
S - Grassy and floral, with some caramel malt.
T - Buttery tasting malt and grassy hops. This is a well done English style IPA, and truly like tasting a beer from the past from Magic Hat. Earthy and sweet but very well balanced with a burnt/toasty and bitter aftertaste.
M - Chewy mouthfeel with medium carbonation. My only complaint is that it has an astringent and slightly metallic aspect.
D - Heavy on flavor but doesn't feel too heavy going down. I could definitely session this.
Overall, one of the better Magic Hat brews I have ever had. I am gaining hope for them once again, assuming the other "IPAs on Tour" can hold up.
