Guide Review - Tasting Notes and Review of Magic Hat Odd Notion Spring '10
It's aroma definitely tilts toward pale ale with woody, pine needle notes. That hop character bursts into the mouth with the first drink without being overly bitter. This backs off after a moment and gives way to a soft, sweet character reminiscent of pears. The hops bitterness finally takes over and lingers beautifully in the mouth.
This is a very approachable beer. At the same time it has enough complexity to stay interesting.
