How many people are into the Magic Hat brewery selctions?

I love their H.I.P.A seasonal, and their #9 most of all.

Your thoughts?

I love Roxy Rolles, their new hoppy red. Haven't heard much good about HIPA, so I haven't tried it yet. #9 used to be a fave, but it's a little light for me these days.

#9 is the only one I've had. It was pretty good for a change, but nothing I could drink tons of. Unfortunately, we can't get it here in Nebraska.

OMG...I think HIPA is by far the worst IPA I've ever had. I like the Jinx. Stuff is awesome. Wish I had some now.

I don't care for most of their beers.

Especially #9!

I haven't bought any of their beer for a while now. I might consider trying some of their new ones in a mix pack if I knew there was not going to be a few bottles #9 in there! Then again, I have been dissapointed by many others as well.

They are BIG on hype/marketing and kitsch. Small on flavor. IMHO of course

end rant.
