Magic Hat Company Blind Faith IPA is going to be featured in this blog. Magic Hat Company was founded in 1994 in Burlington, Vermont. Magic Hat brought Pyramid Brewery in 2008 and later in 2010, they were brought out by North American Breweries from Rochester, New York. Let us get into the beer.
Magic Hat Blind Faith is their India Pale Ale seasonal. It is available in six-pack bottles and part of their sampler pack. It is a slightly cloudy copper color with a white head at first. It goes away after a while. There is really no smell to the beer. The taste is a grassy to earthly hop taste to it and has a dry mango aftertaste.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Magic Hat is presenting our year long “Tour of IPAs!” Please join us in welcoming to the stage our revolving roster of FOUR features, specially formulated to entertain the palates of hop lovers worldwide. Smell the hops, taste the hops, love the hops…. and stay “On Tour” with our quarterly cabaret of IPAs.

In the end, I have to be honest which I am through these blogs. It has got me in trouble at times. I am not a huge fan of this brewery. However, of late this brewery has been trying to do different things, this India Pale Ale is one of them. In the craft world now, American Craft Breweries do not know when to stop making their beers over hop. It is nice to have a nice English India Pale Ale, which is what this Magic Hat beer. They are flipping the hops for the turn of the seasonal, which I love to get a different twist on IPA. I know Samuel Adams did that with their IPA but in a sampler pack which was a few years ago. Widmer Brothers are doing that to their IPA and I really enjoyed their Fall, Winter, and Spirng IPA in that line. Magic Hat Blind Faith IPA is coming out of its seasonal so I would go head out and find this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
