A crisp and fresh IPA with a very Hoppy nose. well balanced and not as much hoppy on tha palate and a nice long finish. Body could be a little fuller.

rayaron (218) - 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.

HoopsandHops (29) - ISRAEL - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 2/2015. Pours a pale golden orange against the light, clear, not a single bubble rising from the bottom of the glass. One finger of white foamy head that dissipates slowly though not completely. Nicely aromatic even if not explosive on the nose -- earthy, peachy, little bit of orange juice, blueberry sweetness, no alcohol. Weird thing about the taste is I always seem to get more of that IPA character when drinking this directly from the bottle. This is the second time Iím drinking it out of a glass, and itís not impressing. Very minor hop presence and bitterness, sweet and a little salty notes of crackers, vegetables, no alcohol. Warming doesnít help, the beer remains on the weak side as far as flavor goes. Body is medium, carbonation is average, lacing is okay. Bottom line: exceedingly disappointing for an IPA and not a memorable beer by any means, but with the caveat that this is a go-to beer for me to drink out of the bottle when selection is limited thanks to its rather ubiquitous availability in the country and for some reason better flavor out of the bottle.

cfrancis (2410) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
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. Doesnít overpower with either.

Randy4Beer (193) - - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa Craft Beer Festival. Was told by the pourer, that it had travelled many miles, brought in from Israel itself I believe, for the festival. A polished copper appearance, with a fairly thick head (he had to let it settle then pour me some more). Aromas were of citrus hops, some grapefruit, and some definite lemon coming through. Tastes were a nice transition from a bitter start to a sweeter lighter finish, with a good balance of citrus, and maltiness. Overall, a hard one to peg as itís really neither an American West Coast IPA, nor a traditional British one. I welcome itís uniqueness.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2176) - 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.
