Magic Hat "Blind Faith"
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
IPA (ABV 6.2%) (IBU 60)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 12/20

The pour was a cloudy copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that was mostly lasting, receding down to a large cap with fair streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light sweet bread malt, grassy hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, honey, citrus (orange) and maybe a touch of dried fruit (figs).

The taste was lightly malty sweet with a mild hint of caramel early on, becoming a bit hoppy with a light citrus note and a slight bitter finish. The flavor lasted an average amount of time after the swallow leaving behind a light smooth bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel was just a hair above light in body with a watery dry texture and a medium carbonation.

Overall a pretty basic IPA, although it possessed a good drinkability it did not have any outstanding qualities...
