Draft. Apple, berry, biscuit aroma but very faint. Deep gold with quickly dissipating head. Fruity, yeasty, boozy... bit smoky too. Interesting and good.

Pours hazy yellow, medium white head and excellent lacing. Strong hoppy aroma of citrus and pine. Taste gets all the fruity hoppiness with tropical fruits, resin, lemon, that overwhelm a still strong maltiness. Enjoyed every sip. Excellent IPA!

Keg tap at the Euston Tap. Dark gold, slightly hazy (at least in this light), very little head. Citrus in the aroma but there’s also a notable vegetal/PVC component. Tastes quite bitter, a hint of citrus sweetness but the bitterness wins out. Finish is fairly acrid with suggestions of watercress. Certainly drinkable but not Magic Rock’s best and from my experience I’m surprised at the high ratings.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Rich182, thanks! Canned on June 12, 2016, drunk 8/5/16.
Large, foamy/rocky, off-white head tops a lightly hazy, golden-amber body. Retention is strong.
Oh ya. Juicy fruits galore, with deep cherry-ruby red grapefruit notes and strong citrus through the middle. Light earthiness and bready malts, but distracting little from the hops. With warming/breathing it just gets softer and juicier. The more aggressive citric/pine notes never leave but are kept in balance by the malts and tropical juice notes, and as well, they in turn keep the beer from getting too "sweet" or fruity. No alcohol noted, nor flaw.
Spicy citrus and dank notes open up the flavor with soft, well-attenuated malts providing light caramel and strong honey notes. These are easily dispersed by the strong bitterness. Citrus of all kinds adds juice, flavor and crisp bitterness. Tons of mango and pineapple in there as well. Not quite a juice bomb, and with more bitterness and malt character than New England IPAs, but a really nice hybrid. Never gets fatiguing (the resin) nor alcoholic and certainly very clean. Not to mention the beer was this good at 2 months old....Nice! Hope to try more from here!

Buenísima. Buen aroma y nada más entrar en la boca se percibe el lúpulo. Tiene además un sabor largo. Es fresca, con un toque cítrico y amargol. Me recuerda bastante a Punk IPA.

Cloudy marmalade with dissipating head. Faint aroma, of mineral, saline, and dishsoap. Light bodied, hoppy, and tasting of mango. I don’t find it either as resinous, malty, or bitter as described.

A bit of nice , although it is a lot cloudier than I expected. Fruiter too, but the dryness at the finish is amazing and just makes you want more, but the amarillo might just be too cranked up and that fruit body will beat you in giving up. However an afternoon with this would be a blast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bardzo karmelowy smak.
Aromat lekko słodkawy, tropikalny.
Mętne z dobrą goryczką.
Mimo tak dużej zawartości alkoholu, jest znakomicie wyważone.
Ogólne wrażenie nie powala.
