Tasting League Notes: Stickman Brewery Foreman IPA

A brand new visitor to the monthly mixed case #TastingLeague. Lucy Corne told us to give these guys from the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town a chance to show what their area had to offer and so here we go with this tasty Stickman IPA.

The Tasting experience:

Appearance: Amber, relatively clear but unfiltered; off-white, dense head.
Aroma: Grass, sweet malty almost nutty grain, with a good dose of pine.
Flavour & finish: Malty bread-like balance as well with a the tropical fruit punch from the hops. Rich and refreshing with a snappy bitter finish.

Quick fire facts:

  • It has a 5.7% ABV and sits at 57 IBUs.
  • The brewery got its name after a few beers on Cape Town’s Signal Hill and the brewer admitting that he shouldn’t be the one to design the labels, as he couldn’t even draw a stickman.

Overall thoughts:

Great first shot in the #TastingLeague, good IPA, drinkable but punchy enough to keep you interested.
