Magic hat seems to have the head/body thing down pat. Active body, creamy thick almost ice cream dense looking head. The aromas are light but this smells like a darn good IPA without the kick I'd like. The flavors however just aren't right. It is a melon dominate fruit flavor with pineapples adding their two since. The malt lacks the balance to fix these two not for me flavors. The finish on this is just awful, almost a dry cardboard like element.
Magic hat just seems to miss things time after time. I can see some IPA fans enjoying this one, but even those who this was made for I believe will feel this is average IPA at best.
