North London brewery Pressure Drop have been rumoured to have upped their game a lot recently, producing excellent beers.
Well then, I thought it was time to get a fresh batch into BeerCraft, we last did them well before Christmas.
Play the Dane is a New England style IPA, still a very popular style, and this one was canned at the end of April,
The can design itself is following the recent fashion of blocky graphics, I’m not exactly sure what it is though!
The beer is a murky and dull off yellow colour, that is an excellent start, and there are subtle smells of mango, guava and tropical fruit, as you’d expect with a New England IPA.
Play the Dane is double dry hopped with Amarillo and Citra, and this hives a nice smooth taste with just a hint of bitterness and a good level of sweetness - just right.
And that’s the trick with these beers, getting all those flavour profiles just right.
