Magic Rock Brewing Co. Half Cut (8%)

What a marvellous thing this is.
A thing of marvellosity in fact.
It’s my new word for Magic Rock.
They embody marvellosity, from their beautiful presentation to their extraordinarily good beer, they simply drip style and class with a good dose of cool tongue in cheek humour.
Half Cut is a Double IPA in a pint can and so Half Cut is what I’ll probably be by the end of it, and and I simply can’t wait as it pours a bright gold with a foaming head of fun.
Everything here is marvellously balanced, balanced with marvellosity, from the malt bill that includes naked oats, adding a smooth creamy underbelly to the experience of soft caramel shortcake and salted honey pop corn, to the tongue twizzling smack of pin sharp hops – T90 HBC438 and Denali, and CryHops in the form of Citra, Mosaic, Simcoe and Amarillo – that hit you with super fresh penny fruit sweets, sherbet lemons, orange marmalade, rolling tobacco, a little bit of resinous goo and a slap of fresh herbal leaves, while the yeast brings a lovely kiss of lightly spiced apricot to the party.
All this goodness is pushed gently forward by the boozy backbone that’s never burning, but instead sexily warm and inviting, leading you to lip puckering Half Cut oblivion.
Magic Rock have Marvellosity.
