Magic Hat "HI.P.A."
Magic Hat Brewing Company - South Burlington, Vermont USA
IPA (ABV 6.7%) (IBU 70)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 3.3/5.0

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

The pour was a hazy golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that had great retention and excellent sheeting of lacing.

The aroma was of light grain malts, floral hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel and citrus (orange).

The taste was bitter from the get go with a mild caramel sweetness slowly creeping in, and then became mostly hoppy with a strong citrus peel bitterness and a slight peppery ending. The flavor lasted quite a while after the swallow with a good bold hoppiness left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a very satisfying IPA with lots of flavor and a damn good hoppy presence...
