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, a little hazy light orange colour, medium stable bubbly head, aroma of grapefruit, mandarine, orange blossom and jasmine tea with just a touch of honey in the back, strong empathic grapefruit bitterness with some flowery notes and a bready backbone, finish is mellow with the same traits. Very, very good IPA.

Shain (82) - 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 (6231) - 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.
