Notes/Commercial Description:
A beer cloaked in secrecy. An ale whose mysterious and unusual palate will swirl across your tongue and ask more questions than it answers. A sort of dry, crisp, refreshing, not-quite pale ale. #9 is really impossible to describe because there's never been anything else quite like it.

20 IBU

This tastes like cough syrup. Can't shake it. I made it through one the other night. I tried a second tonight and couldn't stomach it. I recycled the remaining four bottles.

I absolutely love this beer! This was the first beer I've drank that I would classify as "refreshing." I'd had other Magic Hat brews and brought to a BBQ and everyone made the same face when they noticed how smooth and fresh the beer was after a first sip. Pairs extremely well with food and is and ideal summer beer.
