Tonight I came home to an excellent surprise – beer! My quarterly shipment of Magic Hat arrived, and with it came two bottles of Dream Machine IPL and a frickin sweet glass. Score!
The Dream Machine is an American Pale Lager with a 5.7% ABV. As far as IPLs go, it’s quite balanced. Lots of citrusy & floral hops combine with a solid malt backbone to create a solid, quite drinkable, brew. I wouldn’t say it’s particularly unique. I would probably buy this on draft if I saw it.
Lucky for me, Dream Machine will be available year round…the last time Magic Hat introduced a regular new year-round beer was nearly 10 years ago!
