Coming out March 1: Magic Hat’s first new year round beer in nearly 10 years, according to a beautifully packaged press release. Dream Machine IPL (India pale lager) pours slightly copper, has a floral aroma, is crisp with a bitterness that accents a tangerine splash. It finishes a bit harsh, but the light body rewards resipping.
I was lucky enough to get an advance package, which included a sample glass (shown in the psychedelic video I made). I recommend having it with turkey meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans, primarily because that’s the only food with which I’ve paired it.
