3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 Re-rate 3/17/16: Draught sample at Beer Market TLV. Slightly hazy golden. Grainy with a bit of yeast, and mild citric and floral hops. Some bitterness. Not nearly as good as it used to be when it was just released - still drinkable but pretty weak. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8
Bottle sample at the Beer & Beyond room in "Icon" Sci-Fi/Fantasy festival in Tel Aviv. Pretty clear golden color with a small white head. Lovely fresh floral and citric hops in the aroma. Flavor has a bit of sweetness at first and continues with pleasant bitter hops, floral and somewhat grapefruity. Medium-bodied. Tasty and quaffable. A step-up for Alexander. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5

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.

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.

Nice clean IPA, pure hoppy notes. Orange coloured and almost clear, has a white head, medium duration. Nice hoppy aroma, has notes of spice too. Flavor starts light sweet and finish heavy bitter. Dry texture and soft carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Keren! I perhaps sat on this too long given that it was an IPA :(. My apologies. Pours clear golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite malty, corn, grain, caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light piney bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. I thought this was actually pretty good on its own merits, but I am surprised to (afterwards) realize that it was an IPA.
