Pours with a nice head that disappears in less then a minute. The best Alexander that I had but overall ...itís OK for an Israeli beer but had better IPAís....itís worth a try.

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.

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.

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.
