I'm not the biggest fan of the IPL in general, but I think that gives me some objectivity in this case. This particular beer looks alright tastes alright, but as always seems to be the case with SA, has an off-putting oily consistency on my palate, as if they're trying to add hop essences yet still maintain a watery body for some reason. Meh overall

Medium amber, cream/ offwhite head, magnificent lacing. Aroma of papaya and pine, like a good IPA. Taste is malt forward and clean with light tropical fruit and menthol. Mouthfeel is frothy and buoyant. This is a very good beer.

Pleasantly surprised with this brew. It was left in my possession from a vacation with friends and found in the back of my fridge a few months later. Held up nicely and an all around solid drink.

Very tasty combo of hops and lager. Really beginning to like this style. Very drinkable.
