Thanks to olliejobbins for this one. Pours a clear dark amber color, topped with lots of solid and lasting beige colored head. Very pleasant fruity aroma, followed by some malty notes. Taste starts with some gentle fruity sweetness, there’s a decent hoppy bitterness in teh body and finish. Very nice and easily drinkable IPA.

Maris (1108) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 30, 2015
From a 220ml bottle on 30/4/2015. Pours a cloudy dark golden with the barest of heads.The aroma features caramel malt and lots of sharp citrus fruit (particularly orange). These also feature in the flavour, along with some honey, spice and a hint of grapefruit. Finishes with nice lingering quite bitter hops. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation. A very pleasant well made IPA.

mkel07 (3997) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2015
Bottle labelled as Crafty Dan’s 230415. You can easily tell that this is an American IPA given that it is loaded with hoppy, piney floral aromas and is a deep honey colour with a decent head. Flavour fills the mouth with hops. There is a bit of caramel in the finish and the beer has more aroma than flavour and is weighty in the glass.

mabuzzer (224) - SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
330ml can as Crafty Dan 13 Guns. Copper colour with white head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Taste is caramel with decent hoppiness. Not as hoppy as expected, but not bad for that, a rather good, well balanced beer in fact

ianwelby (661) - SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2015
(As Crafy Dan 13 guns, in a can.) Clear, reddish-amber beer with a thin head and a hoppy, zesty smell. Flavour is basically what you’d expect. Sharp, hoppy lemmon with a touch of sweetness to lend it some balance. Pleasingly dry finish. Very drinkable.

Flavour is medium sweet, caramel, resin, citrus, light metallic, decent bitter finish with some aluminium. Light bodied. Decent, and good value as well.

Bottle 0,33 @ Annelinna Prisma, Tartu. Copper color. Light fruity aroma. Hoppy taste, medium bitterness. Good IPA, but it could be more refreshing.
