The taste of grapefruits along with the exact maltiness and the expected IPA’s bitterness makes the perfect IPA

HoopsandHops (20) - ISRAEL - NOV 8, 2013
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 11/2013. Pours a dark rusty orange color, hazy with two-finger+ fluffy/rocky head that retains and laces beautifully. Very little in the way of carbonation visible. Aroma is bursting with citrus notes, particularly orange peel, but also a fresh bread-like/bakery sweetness riding shotgun. The aroma is really compelling, it’s hard to resist diving in with the mouth. Taste is delicious caramel malt up front -- makes me think of a tootsie roll. It then shifts into red grapefruit, intensely delicious, bitter hops. Medium carbonation makes all the flavors animated and dynamic in the mouth. Mouthfeel is generally medium -- not watery, not quite chewy. As beer warms, taste becomes sweeter in the first half, more like skittles than tootsie rolls, transitioning to honey in the middle, and then more of a resiny aftertaste. The aroma in the glass gets stickier-sweeter as the lacing along the sides dries. This is simply a delicious beverage, hard to drink just one, a pleasure through and through, and the #1 beer being brewed in Israel.

Great bitterness and fruity tastes as an IPA should be. Good and stable foam for bottled beer. Overall a very nice and balanced IPA.

tomer (1620) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 17, 2012
Draught at the brewery, stable lasting very creamy head that looks like whipped cream, hazy deepish orange colour, aroma of bread which is a little toasted, citrus, passion fruit, and mango with a piney hint, flavour of flowers, herbs, grapefruit and some bread in the back, very strong but mellow bitterness with a quite strong sourness complementing each other, long and longering bitter sour aftertase. A beautifully balanced IPA, probably the best in Israel right now.

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - MAR 19, 2012
Deep copper with a small but stable head. Aroma of American hops, grapefruit, and grass. Firm bitterness with malt tones that balance it out nicely and a long palate. This is one of those rare IPAs that manages to have a lot of hopping, and still be balanced and highly drinkable.

KnutAlbert (5999) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle. Dark gold. Very inviting herbal nose. Pleasant grassy flavour, fine bitterness. Long crisp tail. Nothing ugly about this.

Zarkam (369) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2014
Based on notes from 032914. 330ml bottle, hazy dark amber colour, small frothy mostly lasting off-white head, good lacing. Moderate malty aroma of bisquit and dates, heavy resiny and grapefruity hops and a hint of cheese from yeast. Taste is initially slightly sweet and moderately bitter and acidic, turning into a long heavyish bitter finish with a heavily astringent feel. Medium body, oily texture, lively carbonation. A very solid good IPA with a bit darker malts than usual, could’ve possibly had a bit more of them to back the hoppiness up. Still excellent.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 16, 2013
Draught at the brewery. Pours clear dark golden with a big, frothy white head. Lychee, pine, faint red grapefruit aroma. Dry, grapefruit peel bitter taste. Light-to-medium body, good fizz. Best Israeli beer.
