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.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a large pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some perfect lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit with some mango notes is quite nice. Taste is a great mix perfect some flora notes of tropical fruit and mango with fruity ester and a solid Belgian malt backbone. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer with great notes of Galaxy hops and a solid malt backbone which mix in very well.

ElManana (205) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2014
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is yeasty and light toasted malty, herbal hoppy. Bitter, greasy and pine to herbal. Teaish. Dry and bitter rough finish. I like the normal one better personally.

BeerLuvver (53) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2014
Another superb example of a Troubadour beer. Gorgeous aroma of fruity hops, pine and Belgian yeast. Pours beautifully with tight head and very small bubbles. Quite lively in the mouth but an explosion of fruity, hoppy flavours. Lovely Galaxy finish. Not too bitter, not too sweet, just well balanced and very drinkable. Amazed to find this is a 9% as this 75cl bottle was gone in no time. Should have a health warning on it as it’s so drinkable...oh hang on, it has.

pushkinwow (1966) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
750ml bottle. Hazy vibrant amber with a nice creamy head. Quite fruity with some peach and orange with a bit of creamsicle note, some caramel and pine. Moderate body and carbonation, slightly sweet but then more bitter, very fruity as it dries out with some apricot and more creamsicle. Tasty.

beholder (58) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 2, 2014
Appearance: hazy amber with a big, thick white head, that’s slowly dropping and leaving nice lacing on the glass
Aroma: huge, intense aroma - there’s caramel, bread, pineapple, resin, flowers, pine... Everything!
Taste: sweet, fruity and citrusy. Also some toasty notes. Alcohol is present, but makes everything taste even better. Medium bitterness, could be higher I guess.
Mouthfeel: full bodied, medium carbonation
Overall: this is a big beer. And not just because it’s in a 750ml bottle (the bottle is superb, beautiful etc., I love it and I’m gonna keep it). I don’t usually drink sweet IIPA’s but this one is great, because there’s so much more to it than just the sweetness. Highly recommended beer!

Grzesiek79 (3130) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Wspaniale piwo aromatyczne pachnace lekko zywicznoscia i syropem klonowym. Piana poterzna i trwala. Kolor ciemno pomaranczowy, bardzo metny. Butelka elegandzka, lakierowana. Australijski chmiel wyraznie roznil sie od tych ktore poznalem. W smaku piwo przejawialo mieszanke cytrusowa z opiekanymi tostami, a takze karmelowoscia. Wspaniale w smaku tresciwe i lekko ciezkie. Ale to same plusy wiec niczego szczegolnie nie moge sie przyczepic.

Like an aged American strong, with a big mouthfeel, and lots of hop and orange citrus flavour in the finish. Very well balanced. Thanks Boutip.

Thanks to boutip for this. Pours dark copper with a big light beige foamy head. Aroma is slight caramel and biscuit malt with floral and pine hop. Taste is biscuity malt with a touch of caramel sweetness. Nice floral and pine hop in the back end with moderate bitterness.
