Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - August - IPYAAAY!

Fireworks! Explosions! Hop cannons blasting! And if we could insert a Gif of Stallone
screaming while spraying a malt machine gun from a helicopter in here, you’d better believe
we would! Yes, it’s August and as far as important months in beer go, it’s the tippy top of
Hop Mountain. Are you ready for this? Over the next 31 days, we get to celebrate
International IPA Day, International Beer Day, and probably the most important day of all,
our very own League of Beers Birthday! That’s right we’re hitting the ripe old age of 6 and
what better way to celebrate than with a little IPYAAAY!

Let us know what you think of the beers. Hit us up on @TastingLeague on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and join the crafty conversation. Every month our community of Tasting League Legends post pics and reviews of the mixed case beers. There are always League of Beers vouchers up for grabs so keep an eye on the timelines for details. Until next month, cheers and here’s to great craft beers!

Vedett Extra Session IPA, 330ml

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Low on alcohol, high on flavour! Vedett Session IPA is the ideal choice when you have to go the distance. Because settling in for a session shouldn’t mean having to settle for anything less than a full-flavoured taste experience!

  • Experience an intense aroma of citrus and pine resin
  • Hold it to the light and you would even say this golden, slightly cloudy Belgian ale glows
  • The taste has initial bursts of refreshing acidity which slowly develops into a crisp, flavoursome bitterness
  • Hoppy aftertaste

St. Francis Brewing Co. Wild Side Session IPA

No reviews yet - Write the first review

St Francis Brewing Co is about family, friends and great beer. Set in the heart of the village of St Francis Bay, their brewery was first established in 2012 after a long surf trip up the West Coast of the United States. Their beers are inspired by the sun, the surf, and the community of people who make St Francis Bay such a special place.

  • Wildside IPA
  • A true US Rockies IPA
  • Enticing aroma with flavours of grapefruit bitterness

Drifter Brewing Company Xap Xap NEIPA

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Xap Xap also known as shap shap is a favourite South African phrase, meaning everything from ‘I understand’ to ‘that’s good.’ It’s one of our many words that could be used over and over in a conversation and each time it would describe something totally different. You don’t need much to communicate as long as you can say, ‘xap xap!’ 

Zwakala and Drifter are much the same. These two breweries on opposite sides of the country and in very different surroundings don’t need to say much for a collaboration to spark. Head brewers, Luca and Nick just start throwing around flavour ideas and then ‘xap xap’! A beautiful beer is brewed. 

  • Delight your senses with the hoppy and fruity aromas of this NEIPA
  • Beautiful hazy mellow yellow colour
  • You'll pick up passionfruit and citrus flavours from the hops
  • It's topped off with a bitter but smooth finish

Devil's Peak Brewing Company The King's Blockhouse IPA

4.5 stars from 11 reviews - Write your review

Hoppy and bitter, this is a strong American-style IPA, with a prominent hop aroma and a citrusy, floral character derived from the American hops. It has been dry hopped for aroma, but there remains a sweet, clean, maltiness in the background although it's a lot lower than traditional English-style IPAs.

  • Medium, golden colour
  • Frothy, long lasting head
  • Notes of grapefruit, perfume, and flowers, with light sweetness and a malty backbone
