Beer: Lupul Dacic

Brewer: Kruhnen

Lush IPA, 6.4%

Bought it because it’s about time I tried an IPA and seriously tasted it. We just got this brewery in store last week, and the labels are just so gorgeous, and the beer descriptions sounded really interesting.

So yeah. It’s happening. I’m reviewing an IPA.

 

 

So as you can see, this is a gorgeous clear amber colour. I can see very little sediment floating about in there, as I’ve only just poured it out. So weird. It has a dense golden foam which dissipates fairly quickly, leaving very little behind.

It smells just lovely and refreshing. But… also hoppy. Beware. And citrus. I smells lots of citrus. Oh label says it has grapefruit in it! There ya go. Oh and resin. Oooook.

Oh good lord.

Umm. Ok. Yep, definitely an IPA. The hops are there, but they aren’t overwhelming. This is actually quite nice. Omg look at me drinking an IPA. I freaking love this. It’s just like grapefruit for breakfast! It’s got that strong, bitter taste but it`s also super satisfying.

Hahaha my boyfriend just tried it and he loves it. We finally agree on a beer!

Ok so this is definitely yummy, and now one of my favourites. I have no idea how I will feel about other IPAs after this, but my foot is in the door now. I’m very curious to try this brewery’s other beers now.

Not too strong, but respectable at 6.4%.

If you`re new to IPAs, I definitely recommend this. Trust me, I’m a hard sell.
