Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle at Banana jam. First impy/bw Ive tried from Africa I think. The beer is dull rusty colored but the head is stable. The aroma corresponds with rusty thick old hops and ripe fruit. The balance is good--lots of malt sweetness with a good enough amount of hop. Thick burly palate. The alcohol is apparent but not harsh. It is fairly well-made although uninspired. The sweetness does overtake the hops in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really nice aroma. Better than the taste. The taste is pretty bitter. But mine says 8,0% ABV, not over 10%. Anyway very good beer. 1st from this brewery.

Bottle Cape Town. Instant fruity peachy lichi aroma which is very pleasant. Pours copper orange. Very light head and carbonation. Alcohol is present but not unbearable. Overall very enjoyable especially the aroma. Hoppy for sure but happily!

Sweet hoppy, biscuity nose. Sprucey pine hop profile is complimented well by the biscuity malt. Warm finish with a lingering bitterness.

scottkelly (13) - Somerset West, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Only IIPA you can find at the moment. Very strong floral aroma from hops. Mouthfeel is perfect for the beer. Even the bit of alcoholic flavor comes through but it isn’t overbearing.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle @ Deans crappy music tasting. Aroma has herbal hops, some vegetable. Flavour is yeasty sweaty hops, quite some diacetyl. Not too good.

jmgreenuk (7683) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle at Deanso’s crappy music tasting. Poured a clear dark amber with a broken white head. The aroma is malty and zesty. The flavour is hugely malty with lots of alcoholic bitterness. A super beer.
