Wow. As soon as you open this can of beer from Huddersfield's Magic Rock Brewery, aromas swirl around the nostrils rich with pineapple, papaya, mango – all so tropical. Magic Rock is a brewery that are experts in cramming aroma and flavour into cans. This session IPA at 3.9% offers a gargantuan hit of hops, yet balanced with earthy malt and rye bill. The mouthfeel is so big you can almost chew it –incredible at such low alcohol percentage.
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!
