Our flagship IPA won best beer on show at the 2011, 2012 and 2014 Cape Town Festival of Beer, the 2014 Johannesburg Festival of Beer – and was the winner of the 2014 SAB Craft Brewer Championship. Enjoy our take on this iconic style.

Aroma: A prominent to hop aroma with a citrusy, floral, resinous, piney, and passion fruit character derived from the American hops. It has been dry hopped to add aroma. Some clean malty sweetness may be found in the background, but is a lot lower level than in English examples.

Appearance: Color is medium gold. It is almost clear, which is achieved through fining. Good head with white to off-white color should persist.

Flavour: Hop flavour is medium-high and will reflect typical American hop characters with citrusy, floral, resinous, piney and passion fruit aspects. Medium-high hop bitterness is present, although the malt backbone will support the strong hop character and provide for good balance. Medium-dry to dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel without hop-derived astringency, although moderate carbonation can combine to render an overall dry sensation in the presence of malt sweetness.

Overall Impression: A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong American India Pale Ale.
