4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
