3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Almost clear reddish amber color with a medium white head. Lovely citric hops aroma with some tropical fruits and floral notes. Flavor has some malt and mellow sweetness, but is mostly about juicy citric hops. Nice lingering bitter finish. Medium-bodied, rounded mouthfeel. A good and very quaffable IPA.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, cheers to Leighton for the pour! The appearance is deep amber with a medium white head. The aroma’s grass, nose-tingling green pepper menace. Hints of barnyard skunkiness. The taste is big green bell pepper. Stinging light tartness. A bit of orchard fruit and grass, but mostly green pepper. A definite infection, I’d imagine. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, a shame. Hopefully I’ll get to try a sample in decent condition in the future!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, courtesy of the brewer + Naama Halevi, tasted in Norway-Israeli tasting session in Bergen, Norway. :-) Pours a slightly hazy dark orange body with a small white head. Nose is hoppy grass tones, hints of earthy leaves and wood. Taste is grassy bitter hops, hints of heather and hay. Medium carbonation and body. A pretty straight-forward grass-bitter IPA which works well enough, but I miss a bit more complexity in both aroma and taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle bottle shared @ Israeli tasting evening event. This is a near clear dark golden beer with a nice small sidesticking off-white head. The aroma is not bad; Hoppy with tones of citrus, hay and grass. It has a average carbonation level and a nice quite oily mouthfeel. Not bad in the flavors either this one. Well balanced with a good dash of sweetness, some citrus hints blended with zest and a nice grassy hoppy-bitterness. 11.02.2012

Bottle at CBC Clerkenwell share thanks to Chris. Pours golden orange with a small white cap. Nose is big pine and grapefruit with mild caramel. Taste is pretty much the same with more zest. Quite straight forward but a good shout for an IPA
