jbruner (5656) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2018
Pours a slightly hazy gold on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of light citrus and grassy hop notes with a light oxidized malt base. Taste follows, almost like what a European knows of an American IPA, with a touch of oxidation behind it, but it doesn't taste like straight oxidation, just like they're mimicking what they know. Not bad.

CacheManyHose (791) - HONG KONG - JAN 17, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2018 Bottle from V&A beer shop in Cape Town. Pours a clear bright copper-orange with a thin fizzy head and no carbonation. Strong grapefruit pith and heavy resin bitterness, lightly astringent esters, bright and bitter and a little puckering. Body is oily and quite smooth. Solid IPA, very resinous and fruity, not too complex but quite clean. Best local beer I've had in Cape Town so far.

scrooloose (22) - SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 340ml bottle, 500ml draught Pours off-clear golden with a finebehite head that lasts. some lacing present. Aroma: Pine, grapefruit, blackcurrant, sweet breads. Flavour: Caramel, biscuit, dry citrus, tropical fruit Palate: Quite juicy, slightly sweet. Finish: Crisp pronounced bitterness, passion fruit. Autolysis is observable, leaving a matmite flavour behind. Not uncommon for higher ABV beers. Overall pretty good.

fusionsa (10) - SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 8, 2017
340ml bottle, Cape Town, South Africa. Pours with a medium head that quickly settles. Lace retention visible, yet somewhat thin. Medium copper / gold, filtered (latter a shame). Nose light fruit, pine, resin, usual West Coast IPA faire. Taste is bitter fruit, medium-bodied. Enjoyable. Palette smooth, bitter, lingers nicely as an IPA should yet not quite as intricate add one might hope. Good value at R22 per bottle (case price) and therefore a regular of mine. Ranks reasonably on the IPA scene.

Yves (3210) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 31, 2017
Shared with Wim at his home. Hazy amber colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Hopped floral aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is hopped bittter spiced.

BeerLieutenant38 (189) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 15, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 340ml bottle. Deep golden color, with a small but persistent white head. Subtle fruity aroma. Medium sweet citrus flavours with a fairly bitter finish. Terrific IPA, destined to become a favourite.

3.7
