Troubadour Magma is an amber colored beer with the bitterness of an American IPA but balanced with the fruitiness of a Belgian Triple. Enjoy the explosion of fruity aromas from the dry-hopping. -- A Triple IPA wich Czech bittering hops and Simcoe for Dry-hopping. Made by De Proef for Drie Musketeers, Ursel.

Poured from imported bottle into a snifter, as befitting the style. Smells appetizing of fruity hoppiness and Belgian yeasty sweetness, moderate aroma intensity. Appearance is distinct and flawless, a hazy amber-tinged orange color, proportionate head and lacing. Taste is what you would expect if you mixed a Belgian ale with an American IPA- citrus hoppiness with the accent on the floral rather than hoppy notes. Takes the edge off the excessive sweetness tendency of Belgian golden ales. Caramel/sweet maltiness contrast, well balanced. Medium-bodied. Maybe a slight boozy finish but mostly clean with mild bitterness. Overall an excellent merging of styles with comfortable high abv, I would definitely try this again.

Silvan7 (674) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, leggermente velata, con schiuma bianca, abbastanza fine abbastanza persistente. Aroma intenso, di zucchero candito, luppolatura in dry hopping, tra il fruttato ed il resinoso. note di pasta di mandorle. Gusto dolce abboccato all’ingresso, dovute al buon grado alcolico, che la rende zuccherina, seguite da una secchezza mai fastidiosa. Amara, non molto acida. Un po’ spigolosa, non molto carbonata, piuttosto calda, ma meno di quanto lì ABV potrebbe far pensare. Equilibrata.

Hanoi (380) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Nose: Yeast, orange, sugar, slight cream, toffee. Taste is some herbal hops leading to toffee and malt then a boozy peppery finish. Mouthfeel is slick. It’s surprisingly light on bitterness, and is actually more like a traditional English IPA made Imperial than a new world IPA. Once I grasped this, the beer made more sense and I was able to orientate myself with it.

Iznogud (637) - CROATIA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Bruxelles. Pours amber with white head. Malty, spicy and yeasty. Not sure if something was wrong with the bottle but it doesn’t really taste like IPA. Was disappointed.

Pours normal muddy black, but with rather full, fluffy dark beige head. Roast grains and hops vie for the taste buds in a nicely blended beer. Bitter finish.

rockana (221) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2014
Beautiful hazy amber color with nice big white head. Medium to full body. Aroma is slightly hoppy, mango, and piney notes. Some dry hopps too. Very fruity. Taste is overall sweet, followed by some pleasant bitterness, that dissipates rather quickly. This one is a must try, really unique and a nice surprise. I expected standard IPA, but this one is nothing close to the standard, it’s much better, and even if you don’t like IPA so much, you won’t be dissapointed by what this beer has to offer. I’m in love <3

HammerTroll (440) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 3, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Nice hazy dark orange color, extremely big off-white head. Hoppy nose. Biiig mango aroma, not grassy at all. Pleasant sweet taste with medium long slightly bitter finish. Body is medium to full, soft carbonated, creamy texture. Alcohol is very well hidden. All in all, great DIPA, not as bitter as most of us would expect, but with great mango aroma. Really refreshing.

Cunningham (4438) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 2, 2014
Appearance: Hazy deep golden color with a fine thick white head. Nice lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, some yeast and citric hoppy. Mild malty.
Palate: Medium + body. Tad sweet and a fresh bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Pleasant citric hoppy, toffee, yeast (saisonish) and balanced mild round fruity flavour. Kind of plum fruity. Some spicy notes. Where did all the alcohol go? Dangerously well hidden.
Overall impression: Pure class. Note very typical DIPA! IPA meets saison and they live together in perfect harmony the rest of their lives. One more please!
Personal stats: Bottle from my Summer Santa JefVerstraete

aleigator (200) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Amber golden color with a decent white head. Nose is full of fruit aromas, lots of fresh hops and a copper, metallic hint. Begins with soft, bready malt, which soon only underlines fresh, fruity, tropical hops. In this tropical flavor, there are pinches of both lemony bitterness and spicy, alcoholic warmth detectable. Also malts turn sweeter as the big hopwave brushes down the throat, along with a blistering, high carbonation, which is surprisingly spice loaded. Metallic, very bitter, scalding finish, well supported by a lively, coppery carbonation, in which also toffeeish, burned malt shines through. Biting spice sharpness drys out the palate for quite a while, I honestly think that "Magma" is the perfect name for this unusual double IPA, which convinces on the hop part, but also contains a lot aggressive, hot spices.

Thanks to Arjen for sharing. Cloudy dark golden colored. Beautiful nose of hops (Simcoe), fruit, and pine. Pleasant bitter flavor, Simcoe again, fruity nose, thick mouthfeel. I’m not a big fan of the style, but the balance and especially the Simcoe is just great. A big surprise to me, but a splendid brew, ranks among my favorite DIPA’s.
