Hazy honey-gold colour. Faint aromas. Smells lightly of citrus hops, honeysuckle and little grapefruit pith. Clean smooth flavor. Creamy-esque body. Light citrusy hops, fresh and zesty. Faint pith and light bitterness lingers on the back of the palate. A fairly flavorful gluten-free but leave a bit of a coating in the mouth.

On tap at Mother Kelly’s Vauxhall. Pours quite hazy like a NE IPA although the creamy head dies off with only spotty lace. Nose is pretty classic W Coast with rind and dank. Taste is sort of in between. Starts soft and fruity and then turns quite bitter and grassy. I like it well enough, but it may not be enough of one or the other for some.

Hazy peach color with off-white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity with some honey malt. Taste is balanced with a light background malt sweetness and stonefruits and a quite bitter herbal hop finish. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a really complete IPA package.

not convinced on this NEIPA. The bitterness is too high in my opinion. would like it more juicy too. body is ok but could also be creamier.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. Playing Space Pilgrim Episode 05. Very, very, very strong and fresh grassy bitterness with some light tropical fruits and resinous notes. Leaves the throat scratchy. Plenty dry

Poured to an oversized wine glass.

A: The body is orange and hazy but with a medium haziness, not the dense-like NEIPA style. The head is minimal, but shows good retention and some minor lacing.
S: The aroma is mostly resinous, having little citrus, malts and hops.
T: The taste begins with a tangerine hint but quickly falls back to a resinous profile coming in from the hops, connecting in the end of sip with the malt profile. Not great, but good.
M: Body is medium. Carbonation is high and almost perfect. Bitterness is medium high. Alcohol is unnoticed.
O: It seems that I've started with the best Magic Rock, Half Cut. From there, I've had now 4 MRs and all of them are average with the exception of Half Cut. Fantasma appears to be the second best but I was expecting a lot more.
