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. .?

CheesedMan (572) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sent by my Scottish friend, thanks Craig. Color is redolent of marmalade, perhaps a touch of brown. Aroma is slightly catty, in a good way, with some resinous undertones. Drier than I expected, in a good way. Very solid.

weark (879) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - NOV 14, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 Canette achetée sur QoQa.ch - De couleur dorée légèrement trouble avec une mousse blanche crémeuse - Au nez beaucoup de houblon fruité, agrumes, pamplemousse, fruits exotiques, beaucoup de résine, un peu herbacée, un nez de IPA de la côte west - En bouche la résine prend encore plus de place, les houblon sont légèrement moin dominant mais toujours sur les agrumes, bien herbacée, le malt et la levure apparaissent gentillement - Corp léger, amertume forte, carbonation pétillante, lisse, final amère résineux et fruité long - Une IPA avec moin d'alcool ou une pale ale très amère, top, carbo un peu trop forte

I found it to be a marvelous drink, thirst quenching and a very good sample of the style.

Pours a cloudy yellow to orange with a thin white head and good lacing. Aroma is bready malts, apricot, grapefruit, mango and lemon peel. Taste has a little sweetness and then a pretty bitter medium and slightly salty finish. Nice, drinkable, American pale ale.

rouhlas (3783) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - OCT 31, 2017
From can at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Light unclear golden orange color with off white head. Malty and hoppy aroma, citrusy fruity, grass, bread. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

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.

Nasmar (16) - - SEP 5, 2017
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.
