Part of the Magic Hat winter mixed 12 pack that made it to GA for the first time at the end of 2008. This particular bottle came from Hilton Head, SC, USA.
Murky amber pour with a surprisingly good head and creamy lace.
Nose has plenty of soapy hops.
The taste is surprisingly hoppy. I was expecting a beer that was a touch more malty, but this came through quite resinous and piney. As it warms it gets a little more sweetness, but to be honest it still seems quite bitter.
Pretty interesting in as much as this is really a rather bitter beer. MUCH hoppier than I was expecting to say the least and packed full of resin.
