3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bb 12/15 (Gefen in E St K). Pale amber with an inch of white head. Aroma of lemons, citrus leaves, minerals, honey, biscuit. Sweet with lots of honey, some biscuit, no caramel. Again the citrus comes across to me as more lemon than grapefruit. Some underripe mango, white pepper. Too much honey for me and the herbal notes from the interesting hops were a bit much at the end, but pretty good and I liked that it had a local twist.

12 oz bottle.
This has the hop level of a traditional APA and near a contemporary session IPA but has a large load of caramel malts that not only keep the bitterness down to a mild level but leaves a strong taste of caramel lasting all the way through the aftertaste.
O: interesting version of an IPA thatís a bit off-style

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I see the previous reviews and all I can say is I got a great bottle. I enjoyed this on July 2015, and the bottle lot is marked L0805A, whatever that tells us. HUGE fruit hops aroma with a huge fruity punch to match and a lovely bitterness and finish. Nice sweetness in there. I double-checked the bottle to see if I had gotten a dipa but itís marked ipa with 6% abv. The taste is bigger than the specs. I love this beer, holy water frim the Sea of Galilee. I hope Iím not disappointed next time, but Iíll surely buy this again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared thanks to Mrhangover. Pours hazy to cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, cardboard, light fruity hops and light citrus. Maybe this bottle is a bit old? The hops are certainly subdued. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, thnx to Rayaron. Pours a clear golden, orange beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is cardboard, dusty, moldy and rather old. Flavour is a bit sweet, old and not hoppy at all. Seems the hops have faded from the palate unfortunately. Meh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle [from Euro Swap 2015-2 thanks to tomer] @ home. Slightly unclear orange color, average to medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly hoppy, a hint of fruityness and softly bitter. A decent IPA, quite easily drinkable, but no grapefruit long lasting bitterness unfortunately.

Huge thanks to Zeev for that one! Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, more and more hoppy, mild fruity like lemon. Quite drinkable. Nice one!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. It seems liek even with a fresh shipment or so I would assume this one doesnít make it. A mild and unoffensive ipa but it lacks a fresh hoppy punch.
