Magic Rock Brewing – Fantasma Gluten Free IPA – 6.5%
From Magic Rock Brewing comes Fantasma Gluten Free IPA at 6.5%. Probably as close as I will ever get to a gluten free beer. A positive point is that it’s from Magic Rock Brewing. Decanning gives wonderful aromas of fruity mango tropical goodness. The pour is golden amber and cloudy simultaneously. A small bubbly white head is generated without dissipating. The ale is hopped heavily with Magnum and Citra, although the bittering influence is relatively minor and allows the wonderful hops to shine through. The yeasty aftertaste is also quite enjoyable (a little bit fruity and chalky). Overall, Full bodied with hop happy fruity sweet goodness. A kind of refreshing boiled sweets brew, but absolutely amazing and I Loved it. WLP001 Seems to be the yeast to use! One of my favourite brews to date, whilst also gluten free.
