COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. .?

A lovely beer - served from tap at The Cock, Hackney - quite dark amber for a pale ale, with beautiful vanilla aroma and flavour as it enters the mouth, a lovely fruity flavour in the mouth and a grapefruit / light marmalade aftertaste. Thoroughly recommended, and not too strong either, at 5.6%.

Cask. I didn’t like this beer at all, but most likely because i had it from cask, which makes all beer taste dead and boring. I’ll re rate once i try it from bottle

Benzai (10612) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2015
Draught @ Kaapse bierfestival. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell and taste lightly malts, pretty grassy, lightly hops, a touch of fruityness in the distance. Average body and carbonation. Quite nice and refreshing.

sound67 (512) - Offenbach, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2015
[National Winter Ales Festival, Derby, 2015] - Magic Rock Brewery High Wire, 5.5%, gelbgolden trüb, im Aroma sehr starke Grapefruit, mit krautigen Noten, noch etwas wässrig mit mittlerem Körper, Im Antrunk sehr viel Grapefruit, auch sehr krautig, Fichtenharz tritt nach einigen Schlucken deutlich hervor. Zur Mitte etwas unverbindlicher zitronig, zum Ende hin immer trockener werdend, Zitronennote bleibt erhalten, im Nachhall dann wieder deutlicher harzig. Gutes englisches IPA auf halbem Weg zum amerikanischen Stil.

tricksta_p (2087) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2015
Aroma of tropical fruits, biscuity malt, pine, hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. Rather too malt-oriented for me to be a true winner, but it’s definitely smooth and refreshing and it goes down well.
