2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
No canning information.
Appearance: The body is a cloudy dark amber, almost no light goes through which is not how an IPA should look in my opinion. The head is light tan thatís thick with a creamy texture, the retention is average and it leaves foamy lacing down the sides.
Aroma: The aroma is very bland, thereís some citrus notes with just a very light caramel sweetness, but the whole thing is very restrained.
Taste: Like the aroma this is very bland, the intro is watery that leads to a bland indiscernible mid-taste, by the finish the flavor comes out a little with a very light caramel and toasted malts on the finish that finishes slightly dry. No notable hop presence.
Palate: Medium bodied with a slightly oily texture, the carbonation is very light.
Overall: This is priced decently, but even at the price this is too bland to consider.

Bottle sample at a tasting at LiBira Pub in Haifa. Thanks tomer. Hazy amber. Aroma of stale hops, a bit of graininess and light fruitiness. Sourish-bitter flavor with some old hops, graininess, fruity hints, some sweetish honey-ish hints and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Seems way past its prime.

At a tasting, thanks David, small stable head, hazy lightish orange colour, aroma of fruit, hay and bread, flavour of melon and straw, honey and some nuts, light bitterness and a strong suprising sourness. Strange for an IPA and not too good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A malty hybrid pale ale, amber ale mix. Has some hop notes but light, malty and not much cohesion among the parts. Pours an amber orange with a white foam head. An aroma of citrus, caramel, dark fruit and earthiness. Move along.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
From memory. This was the first IPA I ever had, and it nearly scared me away from the style for good. Pours a cloudy yellow with a sticky white head. Aroma and taste are sour, stale, and abusively bitter. I know that my tastes have changed, but I am not particularly inclined to try this again in the foreseeable future.

Cool can. I was hoping for more from this company, but so far...ehhh. This beer should have a category of its own. I mean it taste like a funky sour IPA.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can. Pours a hazy light amber color with a moderate white head. Nose on this has a lot of bread in it, and nothing I would classify as hops. Taste is dirty and muddles, like itís missing a lot of styles. This is a poor representation of an IPA.
