4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Definitely my favorite Magic Rock beer thus far - reminds me of a perfect mix between an IPA and a barley wine. Very fruity, almost syrupy, although it doesn't taste as though it is 11 - 12%.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Despite its surprisingly recessed bitterness, this truly is the hop experience that many a beer drinker would die happy knowing they had experienced it. Pours a dark gold with fantastic pure white lacing. The aroma is simply stellar, apricot, grapefruit, orange, lemon rind, peach, bags of piney resin and honey malt. Initial taste is slightly sweet with notes of honey and caramel as well as a sweet tropical fruits, all which pair beautifully with the slightly oily full body. Further fruit enters the mix, mango and pineapple and the taste starts heading towards heavier, muskier citrus and resin. The finish is very aromatic,medium dry with a citrus based medium bitterness.
