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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3347) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa beerfest. My first Israeli beer, imported through the embassy especially for this festival. A copper pour with a film of beige as a head. It has a nice bready lightly hoppy IPA. Silky smooth mouthfeel, almost slick. The taste is bready, sweet, lightly bitter green hop flavor with a bit of fruitiness. Very pleasant but disappointing if you are expecting a west coast IPA. Midway between English & US IPAs. Not bad, a beer for sipping.

MrHangover (3309) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
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.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 22, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl, at Papsø, thanx. A slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has herbal accents, some biscuit malty notes and a whiff of fruity hops. Sweet malty flavor with a dry, bitter finish. Tangerine and light lemon accents. Refreshing, but not quite there..

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.

chinchill (3129) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2015
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 that’s a bit off-style

teddybeer (2810) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 9, 2013
[Thanks to tomer]. Bottled. Golden colour with an one-finger white head that is maintained all the time. Aroma is light hoppy, fresh, floral. Flavor is light malty, with a light bitterness, some citrus and herbal notes. The final has a slightly bitterness, really easy to drink.

Pours dark copper with a medium frothy head. Aroma is light earthy malts and fruity/citrus hops. Taste is subdued, well balanced with the malt and the hop. Doesn’t overpower with either.
