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.

On-tap. Pours clear orange with a small white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma with citrus and grapefruit notes. Nice gentle bitterness with more citrus undertones. Quite easy to drink and refreshing. Nice beer.

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.

DSG (6534) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 19, 2011
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.

ThreeCats (617) - ISRAEL - MAR 22, 2012
Pours light-honey with a stable foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, and yeast, not overpowering but quite pleasant. Taste of up front bitterness, some citrus, and bitter lemon. Long palate. Good beer, but needs a bit more malt balance to be "great".

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.

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 it’s really neither an American West Coast IPA, nor a traditional British one. I welcome it’s uniqueness.

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.

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.
