DIBBLE (62) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2015 Copper coloured with short lived off white frothy head. Citrus aroma. Flavour is malt and rich fruit. Citrus notes circle above about but seem afraid to mingle with the malt base. This beer seems to have fallen out with itself. Bitter and dry finish. Best served chilled where the imbalance is masked and the zesty fruit takes a solo flight.

JonMoore (1963) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2015
Can from Tesco - amber colour with slim, scuzzy looking head. Fruity, malty aroma. Strong hoppy bitter and malty taste. Medium body, quite highly carbonated. Not bad, but not a greatly joined up beer. Not sure about it being an IPA either.

Bottled, branded as Crafty Dan. Dark amber colour with thin soapy head and medium carbonation. Light hoppy nose with lemon hint. Hoppy, biscuit taste with bitterness from the start. Long finish. Well balanced. Nice beer but a little non-descript.

33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A bright amber pour with a trace of white head; rich resinous citrus aroma; soft sweet pink grapefruit taste; with a crisp dry finish. Excellent.

nihtila (1296) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
28.6.2014. Copper colour, tropical fruity hoppy aroma, resin. However, taste is not really ipa, mostly malts, some bitterness and fruitiness, soft hops. Its actually quite nice, even if maybe more esb. Lingering sweetness in after taste.

Une IPA au nez très américain, une base malté caramel pas écoureant et bien subtil. Une amrtume agréable et modérée. Exellente IPA surtout pour 5.5%

Lots of hops, but to little effect. Simcoe is almost certainly used, and seems the most apparent. But they are just flushed together into not very much. Disappointing. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
