COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alexander Green is the second in our series of seasonal beers, a hoppy beer based on the known IPA style but with our Israeli twist. The hops are at the front - starting with a wonderful fruity aroma of grapefruit, guava, mango and other fruits. At the mouth, smooth sweetness and full body balanced by a grapefruit-like long lasting bitter finish.

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!

crossovert (10313) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
33cl bottle. It seems liek even with a fresh shipment or so I would assume this one doesn’t make it. A mild and unoffensive ipa but it lacks a fresh hoppy punch.

A nice light ipa. Fruity citrus slightly sweet. Nice balance. Would drink it again. Probably would be a good intro to IPA's for the non-ipa inclined.

It poured a hazy golden color with a white head. The aroma was of malts, hops and citrus. The taste was of malts, citrus, sweetness, some caramel, hops and grass. Tasty.

Another excellent beer from Israel. Made with holy water from the Galilee. Soft mouthfeel with low IBU'S ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok during “YATA Oktoberfest” promotion.

Cloudy hazy golden orange colour with thin layer of yeast sediments; One-quarter finger head and soapy off-white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with very slight carbonation; Fragrant and sweet aroma of Ale malt, with mango, strong guava, passion fruits, faint grapefruit, shades of cat piss, nectar, strong molasses, light pine, yeast, very light lemon and light grass; Medium sweet taste of moderate Ale malt, with grapefruit, strong molasses, strong pine and resin, faint earth, dry biscuits, strong yeast, strong lemon, quite strong bitter hops, and sharp grass; Mid to light body. Oozy and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is moderate Ale maltyness, with Simcoe-like hops make a pretty strong citrus and piney impression. Taste not as clean as most American craft IPAs, somewhat muddy actually, but the sweetness, booze level, and oozy piney hops are strong and pretty much on-target. Quite nice!... Hoppiness is Simcoe-like strong guava, mango, passion fruits, nectar and cat piss in nose, grapefruit, strong piney resin and light earth in taste. Bitterness is not too strong, more comparable to British IPAs for a an abrupt, medium astringent finish; Fairly dry after taste. Piney oozy and bitter to mouth.

Comments: This brewery is making steadily decent, if not spectacular, craft brew of different styles, and with this one, you can feel the brewer really put more effort to impress with generous Simcoe for tropical aroma and piney taste. If only it has better maltyness and a bit more boozy, than this one will jump right out of the crowd. A decent buy and worth trying, though.

Shain (159) - ISRAEL - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle 330ml. Pours nice orange-bronze color with a small, short lasting white head. Scent of orange, sweet fruits, light caramel malt, slight hops, slight spice. Nice scent, but not that strong. Mouth feel is creamy but light, body is medium and carbonation is gentle. Tastes slightly sweet with present but not assertive bitterness. Very light sourness. Nicely balanced taste-wise. Flavor is light caramel malt, fruity hops, sweet orange, some yeast, light warm spice, a bit of herbal notes. Also some lemony hops and bread. After taste is slightly bitter but with some nice sweet flavors and is slightly sticky. Flavor profile is very nice and is quite light and not assertive, yet has some complexity. It’s is very "friendly" for an IPA, yet just enough bitter and complex too keep things interesting. Very nice.

after4ever (7061) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2014
330. Thanks, A! Pours a clear medium amber with a loose sudsy tan head. Big marmalade on toast on the nose, lots of tangy sweet orange pith along with toasty biscuit. Creamy medium body with lively carb, quite nice. Mildly toasty biscuity mid palate, great orange pith with mild orange juice on the mid palate. Great herbal hop notes near the finish too. Very convincing british IPA, and worth repeats.

rayaron (1059) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle 330ml. Hazy golden with quickly diminishing low off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, a bit cheesy, light malt sweetness, a hint of onion. Nice hoppy bitterness, tropical fruits, grassy, starts with light sweetness and the finish is bitter. Creamy texture, medium carbonation. light to medium body. Bitter aftertaste.
