Like the standard Magma, this pours a gorgeous deep fire orange colour with a large 3.5 finger off-white head. The smell is quite sweet and fruity - dried apricots, orange, pine, grassy notes and some nice strong malty aromas. The taste is really quite good - grapefruit, lightly sweetened lemon, lots of pine, bit of breadiness from the malts and the galaxy hops give it a more assertive bitterness and dryer finish than the regular Magma. Medium body, nice oily mouth coating. For my taste, this is how a IPA/DIPA should be - great balanced flavours, strong bitterness but not palate-wrecking hops.

minutemat (2908) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2015
75cl bottle shared with Mike & Simon F @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours hazy murky brownish orange with large off-white head. Big citrus orange aroma jumping out the glass, clearly massively hopped. Big hoppy taste with bucketloads of orange and tropical fruit with a touch of Belgian spice. Very good this, but the tripel yeast pips it to the post.

Golden amber and cloudly appearance. Strong fruity and malty aroma. Flavour is very hoppy and well balanced, not so hoppy as most DIPAs more Belgian in character.
