Aroma of passion fruit, litchi, citrus. Deep gold colour with dense white head. Piney, pith of grapefruit, citrus-like taste with bold bitterness. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A great well balanced show stopper!

Bottle from Norman Goodfellows on 2/16/14. Pours a hazy light orange/copper with a big white head. Nose is strongly hoppy. Very happy as no SA beer Iíve had comes close to the hop aroma on this. Taste is nicely bitter upfront, grapefruit bitternes, and grass. Perhaps a bit hop forward without a lot of balance but hands down the best pale ale and beer Iíve had that has been brewed here.

500ml bottle. Medium yellow colour with a good dense head. Aroma of grass and grapefruit. Bold, dry hops, with some fruity sweetness. Nicest IPA I've tasted from SA.

WhoU (109) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Bottle tops Cape Town. Pours golden orange with medium head and carbonation. Small lasting head. Aroma is immediate hoppyness and soapy herb, sharp ruby grapefruit grass smell. Also aroma of safari dried apricot fruit rolls with casting sugar. Taste is sharp bitter sour. Palate is some quick lace with bubbles. Overall really enjoyable. Glad to see South Africa producing this and hope it is just the beginning!!

theSlipperyPen (235) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Pours a solid copper amber, true to style, with a thick persistent head and a delicate lacing. Aroma is of pine and passion fruit and is focused, if a bit simple. There are none of those interesting cheesy notes that you pick up on some IPAs. In the mouth itís very bitter with an intense fresh citrus flavour. The malt is perhaps a little too light. More of a warm, jammy backbone would balance the very dry bittering and flesh out the mouth feel, which is refreshing but thin. Carbonation is fine. Lingering bitterness of hops. Here too a bit of malt oomph wouldíve been welcomed. A fine effort but perhaps a tad unbalanced for me.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
2013-10-31, bottle from Loco Liquor in Blairgowrie, Johannesburg, 8-5-8-5-17=43
Golden color, clean, with generous compact head; nice lace. The hop aroma is very fresh and intense, fruity, with plenty of tropical fruits, pineapple and passion fruit are evident, and a late pungent addition. The mouthfeel is lean like an APA, with a good toffee flavor, very dry; strong bitterness with a good tropical fruit component and later some piney resins, light astringency.
Excellent.

2013-10-27, draught at Wolf Pack, Johannesburg, 7-4-7-4-15=37
Hazy light amber color. The aroma is fresh and with plenty of citrusy hops. Good dry and crispy toffee flavor with citrusy hopping, strong bitterness.
