Tuk Tuk Brew IPA
Brewery: Tuk Tuk Brew
Color: unfiltered, light golden
Head: rocky, dense
Nose: citrus hops
Palate: citrusy hops, balanced
Finish: clean, bitter
Served: on tap taster at the brewery
Impression: This is a brewery that would have likely been missed due to time constraints and being in one of the prime wine towns in South Africa. Mostly wound up here due to a full wine day on the town’s renowned Wine Tram. Tried their Dunkles first and I could have easily kept drinking that but went for their IPA and was glad I did. It looked great when it came out and was a nicely balanced affair. I was afraid of too hoppy a palate after all the wine that day but this was strode the line well. It was certainly a citrus hops-infused brew but it wasn’t overly bitter and had a fine clean bitter finish. The brewpub has beers from mother brewery CBC, as well, but I had their IPA and it wasn’t up to the Tuk Tuk one.
How about another South African craft beer?
