High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

Draught. Aroma is really hoppy but the end of the aroma is a bit woolly. Flavor is grassy hoppy but has some vegetables. The vegetables on the flavor lower the score, but otherwise this is a basic apa.

lusikka (5950) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2013
330 ml bottle @ HeBF. Pours a bright golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, mango and nettles. Flavour of strong grapefruity hops, caramel, pine, sweet fruits, grass and citrus. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a lingering bitter grapefruity finish. Refreshing. Good but a bit one-dimensional.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2013 33 cl bottle @ HeBF’13, BBE 08/2013
Aroma is sweetish and quite heavy with exotic fruits, hops and caramel. Flavour is hoppy with gooseberry bush, grapefruit and pine needles. Slightly harsh bitterness in the finish. Typical and good APA.

Cask @ Olutexpo 2013
Nice hop juice, but nothing much.

northropfrye (2083) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Cask at Port Street, Manchester. This was fabulously delicious, hops are here, for sure, but there’s also a sweet Belgiany element to this that I quite enjoyed.

RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - JUN 19, 2013
Draught. Pours amber in color with a small white head. Lemon, citrus and light notes of summer meadow in aroma. The aroma is actually very fruity and really inviting. Floral notes and light grassy bitterness in taste. Smooth, easy to drink summerbrew.

Osprey87 (1367) - WALES - JUN 15, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 Cold bottle from Mybrewerytap, came in the post today. My first Magic Rock beer, but this one is probably past its best - BBE May 2013. That’s what I get for buying online. Lovely golden colour, white head doesn’t endure for more than a minute. Smell is faint. Not much in the taste either - watery, indistinct floral and fruity notes. Although I’m sure this beer is good when fresh, I have to rate it as it is now.

Bottle. This is a nice APA from a producer you would not expect. Picked this up form a premium bottle shop in edinburgh.
