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 !!!

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%

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

Leighton (14746) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012, London. Pours rich, clear gold with an super thick, off-white cream head. Gloral, grassy hop aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor with lightly toasted pale malts, grass, light urine, pineapple, grapefruit. Light to medium bodied with fine, smooth carbonation. Moderately resinous finish, some pine, semi-dry grapefruit. Surprise of the festival. Excellent beer.

RichardW (1796) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled, Booths. This is superb. Rich fruity aroma, red berries, smooth rounded biscuit palate and a fine soft finish, which has dry, woody notes and increasingly obvious grapefruit flavours. Lovely red colour, Thwaites continue to impress.
