Notes/Commercial Description:
A genre-blending mix of an American wheat beer and a traditional India Pale Ale. Encore is hopped and dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops, and has a pleasant grapefruit aroma that compliments its subtly sweet malty backbone. Grab a lighter and get up front!

Magic Hat Encore
12 oz brown bottle
Best by February 29, 2012
Served in a 20 oz tulip glass

Pours a hazy orange color with a very frothy and fluffy white head on top. Nice trails of sticky lacings decorate the glassware.

The nose if floral and quite hoppy with some citrus.

There are some toasted biscuit flavors with a hint of caramel sweetness. The real flavors in this IPA are the citrus notes of orange and lemon. I notice some low carbonation levels, which make this beer very smooth.

I like how this beer is not overly aggressive hop bomb, yet it still provides a really enjoyable amount of hops.
