Details

Here come Magic Rock yet again knocking it out of the park by doing what they do best – a big, bold, juicy IPA that pulls no punches when it comes to flavour and body. This time they teamed up with Yakima Chief Hop Union to bring us a true showcase of the season’s new hops. The result on the aroma alone is mouth-wateringly fruity and the hops dominate the flavour, bringing in some serious dankness along with toffee and perfumed lychee though it is still masterfully balanced with malty goodness. Sitting at a very respectable 6% you may find you have time for another and we wouldn’t blame you. We are used to seeing collaborations between breweries, but it’s really special to see the hop grower themselves getting involved with a brew, especially one as mind-blowingly excellent as this one! Bravo!

Brewery Info

Founded in 2011 and in the vanguard of the first big wave UK craft breweries, US beer culture and the desire to bring a little bit of that to the UK is at the heart of what Magic Rock do. Coupled with a strong sense of and attachment to the local beer traditions, they exploded onto the beer scene the now seminal Cannonball IPA.

Their core range is as varied as it is bold and outstanding (how many breweries would be brave enough to put a gose in their starting line-up) and is ever growing, and as they’re brewed year-round, you’ll always be able to get them!

Interesting concept - pairing up with a hop grower.
Big juicy tropical fruits, a little bit of bitterness on the finish.
Overall not a bad beer - but had better
