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 ďunity of bitterness, hop flavor and aroma.Ē Enlightened, duganA IPA was born: A brutally bitter, dank, piney and resinous ale designed for those seeking a divine hop experience.

I guess Iím going mostly against the grain on this one in saying that this double IPA isnít all that great. The duganA pours a cloudy light orange color with a decent-sized white head. The head leaves some nice, sticky lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose is where I start to get tipped-off that I may not like this one. I smell a musty couch, a dark, wet basement and a sour vegetable aroma. The flavors, unfortunately, are consistent, with an overpowering, sour and spoiled taste of bitter hops, expired veggies and produce thatís been left in a gutter. I drank about half of the bomber but had to pitch the rest. This one just didnít agree with me.

Bomber bottle poured a cloudy orange hue w/ a large creamy white head slowly diminishing to a thin cap w/ excellent lacing. Big sweet citrus aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are straw, orange, grapefruit, and pine. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and nice carbonation level.

Deuce, pours a light murky brownish orange with off white head. The aroma is primarily malty with some citrus. Taste is caramel malt, pine, citrus, and grapefruit with big time bitterness. Not bad but a bit more malty than I generally prefer in a DIPA.

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 Iím pretty sure I would have again.

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