Magic IPA is an original replica IPA. Lots of English Goldings hops provide a rich spicy bitterness against pale maris otter malt.

Bottle shared with Loz, Jan & Charlotte Sun 23rd Oct 2011 at home. Jan brought this beer along, cheers Jan! Large frothy white head. Mmmhh.. this is a good IPA, ok it isn’t as good as the Bombay 106 from Durham, but it’s nice. Some hop sting, a little dry, tasty decent IPA. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.4

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle at Craft Beer Co tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours gold, with a thick, bubbly white head. The nose is straw, hay, pear, red apple, farmyard, dough and pepper. The taste is tangerine, orange pith, hay, straw, white bread, ginger, pepper. and grass, with a warm, dry-citric finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not bad at all.

pilsnerrogge (2817) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2011
Pours a hazy deep golden colour with a large, creamy head. Sweet honey aroma with notes of dusty hops. Flavour has notes of honey but is mostly a fight between hop bitterness and boozy bitterness; no one wins.

superflyguy (437) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2011
a really good english IPA. pours clear golden straw with an excellent white head which kept to the end of the pint. initial aroma is very fresh; grassy and earthy (laterly I couldn’t help thinking of bubblegum!). tastes slightly sweet and pleasently hoppy in the front of the mouth then a smack of alchohol along with malts and finally a lingering dose of bitterness on the way down. nicely balanced bottle from Beerritz
