didnt check exp date, but this one seemingly lost the hops.. Theres still decent malty backbone, caramel, some light grapefruit, berry like light sourness, light bitterness, feels too watery. If you ask if tshis is drinkable beer - then yes, its o.k. .. if it is decent IPA? no

Amber body, small white head. Intense aroma of ripe, juicy tropical fruits and runny caramel. Taste is moderate malts, moderate resinous hops, dry finish. Medium body, quite fizzy carbonation. After the great aroma I expected more fruitiness, and most of all more bitterness, but whatever. A decent AIPA.

Pours coppery light, white soapy top. Aroma- candy, darker caramel, sour-sweet beries and kind a pine+ straw+... well I didn’t felt any of claimed hops in aroma- no citrus or grapefruit notes. Reminds bitter and even slightly ESB aromas, but not USA classy hops. Liked aroma and taste, light sweet, medium bitter, some light dry-bitter aftertaste with some extra selinene compounds. Light to medium body, watery texture, good drinkability. Low carbonation.

American ipa du Crafty Dan, qui n’en est pas moins anglais … Composé avec 6 houblons, 3 malts d’orge et du seigle. Voir la notice pour détails. Niveau abv de 5,5 % et ibu de 43. Couleur ambre roux clair, à la clarté pure. Bulles fines en fontaine centrale, par dizaines, vives. Mousse qui reste un nappage beige fin à 1 mm. Arômes d’acajou, agrumes, pointe d’airelle, cassis et cannelle. 1ère bouche souple au joli mélange malt/épice, avec du tabac brun de la Semois. Arrière-bouche nuancée, fine. 2ème très fine, avec une pointe de muscade, du miel d’acacia. Arrière-bouche fine, complexe, superbe amertume. 3ème fine, précise, nuancée, très équilibrée. Arrière-bouche toute en harmonie, superbe. Longueur à la prodigieuse harmonie, ampleur, beauté simple et évidente. Jambes fines, marquées. Levure fine, pointue, très belle ligne. Alcool correct pour ce type de bière, il souligne l’amertume. Finale canonique… CONCLUSION : 13 guns, même pas pour péter le feu, mais surtout l’équilibre, l’harmonie et la beauté… C’est mieux que leurs homologues guerriers !!!

A VERY interesting IPA. Short and "happy" ending. Totally suggested. Give it a try!

Draft. Refreshing but has an element of toffee to finish. A lot lighter in taste than the punch it packs

33cl can. Pours amber with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit, malty, caramel, some pine/grass and orange. Medium carbonation. West coast style with initial sweet caramel citrus taste ending in a nice bitter finish - more orange than grapefruit. Lots of hop oil too. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Amber colour, clear. Aroma malts, caramel, grassy hops, some piny tones. Taste bitter, bisquity, malts. Ahojky have been more hoppy intense for IPA. Almost just bitterness from hops. Dry aftertaste.
