Magic Hat hIPA

Here is what the Brewer Says:
hI.P.A. begins and ends with big, bountiful bites of hops, hops and more hops while maintaining the barest hint of a malty middle in the mouth. 
TYPE: India Pale Ale
YEAST: English Ale
HOPS: Columbus

ABV: 6.7  GRAVITY: 15.50 Plato  IBU: 70

My Thoughts: The beer poured a clear golden darker yellow, the head that you see quickly went.   The smell was mostly citrus with a hint of pine.  The taste of this IPA is not complex at all.  The floral, citrus and piney hoppiness is with you from start to finish.  There is a slight malt presence in the middle of this beer which adds just a touch of sweetness and a little body to it.  It is a very crisp drinking beer.  The hop notes will linger on in your mouth well after you have had your sip.   Body is light and carbonation was medium  I picked this up as a single and having it once was enough for me.  I wouldn't go out of my way to buy this again, but if you see a single or a 6-pack it is worth a try if you truly like to try different hoppy brews. 

Serving Type: Bottle

My Rating: Overall 73.5/100
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | drink: 3.5
