Karoo Brewing The Jackal (unfiltered on tap)

The Jackal

Brewery: Karoo Brewing
Color: unfiltered, amber

Head: white, creamy
Nose: slight citrus hop

medium, medium carbonation
Palate: balanced, citrusy hops

Finish: clean,  bitter

Served: on tap at the brewery in Paar

Impression:  Loved the Karoo beers when in Kruger so made a special trip to the brewery. I knew most of the beers from our Safari trip and The Jackal was our favorite so was super happy to finally see it on tap. It was unfiltered and seemed a bit lighter in color than in bottle form. The brewer/owner explained that he had been tweaking some of his recipes, often with locally grown hops to reduce cost and use local products.  At any rate, it was still a very balanced IPA with a fine citrusy nose and palate before the long dry bitter finish.

How about another South African craft beer?
