Bottle from the Fyne Ales brewery shop. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a huge frothy cream head. Nice big resinous aroma. The taste is pine with light spice. Lacking a little something to back it up, but otherwise very nice.

Draught at CBC 2014. Hazy orange liquid with a medium white head. Aroma of flowers, citrus, bread and lemon peel. Taste is dry and light bitter with notes of flowers, brad and citrus. Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. OK.

Kaapse Brouwers is a new brewery carried by Whisk-e and this is their American Bitter which rings in at 4.9% and made with sladek, amarillo, columbus hops plus dry hopped with citra & mosaic. Stylistically I would peg it as similar to many of the recent Session IPAs though it is listed as an APA. It was a slow gusher and poured a deep copper gold with a huge head that stuck around for awhile leaving behind bubble bath looking lacing. A truly fantastically hoppy aroma that is complex with tangerine (mikan), pine, grapefruit, pine needles, lime yet still gives you a hint of biscuit or crackery malts. Medium to light bodied with that tongue scrapping carbonation you associate with IPAs or well-hopped APAs but the somewhat unsatisfyingly thin palate I find in Session IPAs. The taste is bitter but decently balanced the malts don’t give you much more than a certain neutral stiffness while the hops play between fruity and herbal pine. Pretty nice for roughly 500 yen and it has me stoked for trying the Imperial Gozer Stout!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy amber color with large frothy off-white head, poor lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of passion fruit, lychee, mango and mild caramel. Taste starts with light sweet biscuit malt, follows refreshing fruity and grassy with spicy mouthfeel and moderate bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. The most fruity craft beer I’ve tried so far...

Hazy yellow, nice, fine bubbled white head. Light malty ale, with abundant hopping. Sessionable. Quite good.

Great aroma and appearance: fresh and sweet, with surprising pine(apple) and floral tones. Very inviting and easy to drink. The taste is less special though, quite standard IPA with a bitter aftertaste. All in all a good beer though, one of the better IPA’s and certainly one of my favourites from the Kaapse Brouwers!

Tap at Kaapse Brouwers. Slight hazy Amber with full white head. Big aromatic hops with lots of citrus and pine and a touch of pineapple. Dry roasted malty backbone. Dry feel with lively carbonation. Decent ipa!
