COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A prominent hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, resinous, piney, and passion fruit character derived from the American hops. It has been judiciously dry hopped to add aroma. Some clean malty sweetness but generally a lot lower than that found in an English IPA. Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived bitterness, although moderate carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness. Colour is medium gold and appearance is clear. Good head with white to off-white colour should persist.

Pours good golden clear with fluffy head. Strong citrus granadilla nose. Medium mouth feel and carbonation. Malty upfront but quickly followed through with massive hop flavour. Not a bad IPA

Flaska från Kapstaden, Sydafrika, hemsmugglad av min älskade fru! Clean klar gyllene vätska med vitt skum. Doft av tydlig maltbas med en blommig, skogig humleton. Mastig resinsmak, ganska osöt för att vara en IPA. Välbalanserad dock, lämnar en skön eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs via Sydafrika, stort tack! Klar ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar honungslent av fruktig humle. Söt fruktig smak med lite pepprig beska. Rinner av lite för fort men annars riktigt smarrig!

Nie byłoby w tym piwie nic ciekawego, gdyby nie fakt, że przywiezione zostało z Republiki Południowej Afryki. Jasnopomarańczowa barwa z ładną śnieżnobiałą pianą. W zapachu owoce, głównie cytrusy, nuty słodowe. W smaku przyjemna goryczka, grejpfrut. Średnie wysycenie - piwo bardzo pijalne, ale bez efektu "wow" ;)

Bottle at Pot Luck Club in Cape Town. Classic West Coast IPA, tons of tropical fruit (papaya, melon) and lovely rich palate. Top notch.

Bottle in Cape Town. Dark gold with large frothy white head. Fresh juicy hoppy aroma with some pine. Nice juicy hoppy bitter flavour. Long bitter finish. Medium bodied, quite lively, nice dryness. Very good.
