This Triple IPA is a celebration of American hops! The brewer is featuring the Cascade hop in this Magma 2011 edition of the award winning Troubadour Magma, which features Simcoe hops. You will find a new Magma edition every year beginning in October while supplies last. This ale is a one-time offering to the American consumer, so please get your bottle now.

750 bottle. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. Spicy, mildly hoppy nose with a yeasty presence. Taste is actually a tad sweet, with a nice mild hop profile and an alcohol presence that’s enhances the flavors. Very smooth with some decent carbonation. This bottle may be slightly old/mishandled but the taste is excellent. I would like to have this one fresh. Nice beer.

750ml from Ridgewood Wine and Beer, Raleigh. Pretty interesting brew. A hefty, cloudy orange pour with a fine filmy head. Sharp esters and potent hops in the nose. And even though it was only released a few months ago, there’s already a faded quality to it. Nonetheless, very well balanced and complex tripel, combining grassy, floral, and spicy notes quite enjoyably.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Complex funky hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration with a small alcohol bite. This is a interesting complex beer.

Thanks T-Money. Very strange beer. Looks great. Smells funky. Starts out tasting bad and finish well. Complex, weird beer.

I just don’t like this as much as the regular. This one seems boozier, don’t know why, maybe this hop bill just doesn’t mask it the same way as the simcoe.

A little bit of everything, booze, hay, hops and malt. Somehow, it all comes together very nicely. Cheers!

Leuk initiatief, 0,75l fles. Zeer hoppig in de neus, ook wat sinaas. kleur is verder licht koper, pale ale. Schuimkraag is zeer wild (rustig inschenken is de boodschap). Smaak is bitter, fruitig/citrus. Nasmaak heeft wat gisttoetsen. Zoals ik al vaak gelezen en gehooord heb vind ik de gewone magma toch wel beter! Benieuwd naar volgende editie
