3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
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.

Bottle shared by Nir at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Nir! Deep golden with a stable white head. Wonderful hoppy aroma full of tropical fruits and "green" weedy notes. Bitter hoppy flavor with lots of citrus, tropical fruits, light maltiness and a bitter finish, piney and grapefruity. Medium-bodied. A very good IPA.

Amazing aroma of citrus and granadilla and lovely clear golden color. Taste is crisp, with a clear balance between hops and malt and good bitterness. One of the best IPAs I have tasted and stands up to the great American ones

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 500ml bottle. Pours clear orange with rocky (just) off-white head. Pine and citrus aroma. Good bitterness, dry light-medium sweetness. Fizzy carbonation and medium body with a long, dry, bitter finish.
Could happily drink this any day. Session-able IPA. Needs more sweetness to balance strong hop bitterness.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Great IPA!! Reminds me of home the most out of other IPAís in South Africa. Iíve had it from draft and in bottles and have never been disappointed. Very floral aroma, and the hops on the palate give you a nice kick in the mouth.
