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.

Tim Webb (442) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
341 ml bottle at Ginja in Cape Town. The first beer of this trip seriously to impress. A wee bit golden for an IPA and the malt base is a touch tame. Wafts of hoppy-hoppy with a dab of stale onion spoiling the flavour slightly but thatís picky. A good enough beer to take home to meet your Dad. If this is new South African brewing itís getting good.

jgb9348 (6191) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Hazy amber and copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, six centimetre tall pure white very microfoamed head that leaves a pretty ugly lace, but stays afloat for quite a while. Aroma of soap, grass, light hops, citrus and a bit of alcohol. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive hop pellet flavour with some grass, citrus, pine, earth, yeast, grain and a bit of rice and other funky fake malts. Aftertaste shows much more bitterness from the hops with a strong bit of pine, earth, grass, floral and resinous elements with a little sweetness on the finish. Overall, a lot of carbonation, some decent smells in the nose and a much better flavour with a hoppy finish that shows fairly well for a beer from South Africa and decent IPA for the rest of the world (not from the West or even East coast of the USA). I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from TOPS in Cape Quarter (Green Point) in Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on 14-August-2015 for ZAR31,99 sampled at home in Washington on the other side of the planet on 02-January-2017 on my youngest daugherís second birthday [which coincided with her first trip to Africa on this purchase], Happy Birthday Paige!
