Lupulin Rapture Incarnate! As fervent devotees of hops, we found ourselves on a quest to create a transcendental IPA capable of quenching our voracious lupulin desires. Our mantra became “unity of bitterness, hop flavor and aroma.” Enlightened, duganA IPA was born: A brutally bitter, dank, piney and resinous ale designed for those seeking a divine hop experience.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a cloudy/hazy golden orange colored body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that rises just a bit and then falls leaving some nice slightly foamy sticky lacing gracing the sides of the glass. The smell had a large amount of grapefruit up front, some pineapple coming through as well in a really nice juicy sort of way, a slight maltiness comes through as it warms, what a nice invitation! The taste was slightly spicey but a sort of strong sweetness from the previously mentioned flavors trying its hardest to come out, a peppery/spicey aftertaste, quick dry spicey finish. On the palate, it sat about a light to medium, somewhat sessionable, carbonation is slightly felt for a DIPA, however, it seems just a tad under carbonated to me as I was expecting something just a bit sharper. Overall, I would say this is a good DIPA that I’m pretty sure I would have again.

great, ballsy DIPA. Plenty of hops, but what stands out here is the sweet malty backbone. Very nice

EithCubes (4944) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bomber. Nose is full of tropical hops, lemon and lychee over spicy and very strong dough, some resin. Pours hazy golden with orange highlights and a sudsy beige head. Taste strongly bitter, medium carbonation in a full body, light sweetness, luxuriously smooth body with non-burning but still slithery alcohol, dank pine character and softened, gummy resinous character. Some floral and mango notes after a few ounces, overall orange. Decent malt spine but the hops I’d guess to be more aggressive by design are a bit too dulled -- I assumed this to be a fresh bottle, maybe it needs to be had even fresher?

Hop bomb! Resinous, piney hop centric imperial IPA that is surprisingly easy drinking. Floral forward and amber in color, this is a beer for beer lovers.
