Details

Feeling at ease? Feeling as if the world is in balance and nothing can go wrong. It may be that you’ve reached a Zenne-Like state and if you haven’t then this beer will get you there. The latest collab from Magic Rock this time with Brussels’ very own Brasserie de la Senne. Belgian IPAs are difficult, you have to balance two powerful flavors in US hops and Belgian yeast and it can be tricky to strike that balance. Zenne-Like manages to pull it off with ease. It has the Belgian yeast front and centre, but it’s backed up by lots of lovely citric hoppiness and it’s all tied together with a nice lingering bitterness. Wishing to reach a Zenne-Like state, a glass of this will have you well on your way!

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!

Perfectly balanced Belgium IPA

A really nice Belgium IPA. The typical flavours imparted by Belgium yeast are front and centre but compliments rather than overpowering the hop finish. The same can be said of the hops, they bring an almost marmalade characteristic to the beer, which rests comfortably and doesn't dominate the yeast notes.

Whilst beautifully balanced, this is my one complaint, the beer just isn't enough of any one thing, and whilst really pleasant just lacks the true distinctiveness for a 5* rating.

Very pleased with the Belgium influence De La Senne have brought to this beer. Plenty of hop character balanced well with the malts and estery yeast flavours, a really pleasant change from hop soup IPAs
