Under the cap reads "Life is Not a Dress Rehearsal". Did they save the cap for me or what? So the website say "Irresistible Pale Ale" yet the label reads "an IPA". We'll tag it as an IPA for now. Clear and bright copper color, a solid head forms from a sturdy pour. Light tangerine hop aroma from the Amarillo hops and a little herbal from the Crystal, clean toasted grain and a mild buttery note in the back of the nose. That trademark Magic Hat smoothness is there, the biscuity and caramel malt tone battles it out with the hop bitterness. A stale mate as both walk away in a balance manner. Maltiness takes the low road and cover the palate with a caramel sweetness an bread crust biscuity tone. The hops take the high road with more flavor than bitterness yet there is a spicy prickly character upfront. Finish semi-sweet with a pinch of linger hop.
If this is Fat Angel's replacement than it a damn good choice. As far as the whole confusion of Pale Ale or IPA. One brewer's IPA is another brewer's Pale Ale. Either way, welcome to the beer world Lucky Kat, I am sure you'll find many friends.
