Very unique taste: It hits you with bubble gum when you first try it. Then it smoothes out into a nice floral hop finish. The color is golden, with slight cloudiness. It has a nice head. Smells delicious with that bubble gum, hoppy, citrus aromas. Overall it is pretty darn good.

Catch up rating from notes, 2012: From sampler pack.Pours out very normal, medium golden, foamy head subsides rather quickly. Mild hoppy aroma, piney, floral. Taste is fruity, tropical notes, citrus, hop bitterness comes in at the back. Seems a bit thin overall.

4 magic hat ipa’s side by side. 1 Electric Peel, 2 Encore (odd notion, wheat), 3 Lucky Kat, 4 HIPA. Taste has a bit of vinegar and maybe pepper. Pine. Hops. Not pleasant. Sour and bitter mix."

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: very slight haze; medium gold in color; with a fairly aggressive pour, a 3 finger ivory head that receded slowly to a wispy cap; very nice lacing;

S: very restrained; what's there is floral;

T: a hint of tropical fruit up front, then it's floral all the way; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: a little thin for an IPA; moderate carbonation; lightly dry finish;

O: not very interesting; not much aroma and the body seemed thin; no complexity in the flavor;
