COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
High Wire is our tribute to the Pale Ales of the West Coast of America, beers unapologetically hop forward in character. Let your taste buds walk this test of balance. Mango, lychee and lip-smacking grapefruit flavours harmonise against a smoothly composed malt base, which develops into a crisply bitter finish. Are you ready for our tightrope of taste. .?

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Bottle at home, cask and keg at Sheffield Tap 20/07/11. The problem with west coast pale ale clones is that it’s too easy to end up playing the Usual Suspects. To spot the lineage of aroma hop combination, how it developed its light malt footprint. No need. Extending the metaphor, this is the Keyser Soze of pale ales. It’s picked up subtle touches and mannerisms from all over. And before you know it... like that, it’s gone. Effortlessly enjoyable, refreshingly crisp, gluggably good fun. One of those beers that actually made me stop and think less about the recipe and more about enjoying the whole damn pint. Re-rate January 2012. Five pints of this on a Sunday afternoon and it’s got a smoother feel, no hop harshness. Feels ever-more assured. One of the best cask beers in the UK at the moment.

Fantastic, cloudy yet pale IPA from Magic Rock. I've never been too fussed on the other Magic Rock brews that I've come across but this has changed everything. I am very impressed with this beer. As an IPA fan, this ticks every box. Cheers!

Piwo dosc metne w kolorze zlotym nalewa sie z obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana. Soczyste tropikalne owoce lacza sie z nutami chmielowymi. Lekko slodkie z grejpfrutowa goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Bardzo lubie ich piwa w puszkach.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2017 pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy, citrus. Flavor is tropical fruity with a light body. Finish is hoppy, malty, bitter. Overall a good 'pale ale' (5,5%), but missing a bit freshness.

PietS (370) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2017
Sweet malty, tropical fruits (grapefruit, peach, ..), medium bitter in the finish, could do with a little more body. Very good beer though.
