COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Enjoyed with John. Solid beer through and through. Wonderful aroma, full and inviting with hoppy goodness. Dank is a good description. Probably the best integrated very hoppy brew I’ve had that was not bracing in any way. Smooth smooth hop flavor that was very sessionable. My only complaint is that is was so smooth it did not finish crisp and dry like I usually like my hop bombs. But hats off to the brewers on this one. A true mastery of the hop was shown here.

HonkeyBra (3624) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Reddish amber pour with nice thick eggshell head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, pineapple, pine, fruit cocktail hops. The hops in this beer and strong, powerful, and delicious. The hop profile is amazingly complex. Fruit cocktail, tangerine, powdered sugar. Nice mouthfeel. Finishes hoppy. Awesome DIPA.

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2009
22oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a larger sized off white head. Nice lacing left on the glass. Aromas of pine, floral hoppiness, and citrus. Tastes of oranges, tangerines, grapefruit, caramel, and lighter pine (compared to the aromas).

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 24, 2009
On tap. Poured clear copper with a minimal white head and good lacing. The aroma was sugar cookie and pine hops. The flavor was citrus and sugar cookie that was run over by a truck full of pine trees. Medium bodied, almost sticky mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Good lord was this one tasty. The hops are so freessshhh. This one to me has a near perfect hop profile of nearly all citrus, but then on the swallow the pine bites hard to leave an alcoholic hoppy effervescent exhale that pounds this beers wonderful flavors into all surfaces of the palate. Great beer.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2009
22oz - The Wine Source. Dark amber, creamy off white head. Full toasty pine and fruity tropical-citrus aromas ride a soft toffee undercurrent throughout. Melon-pine and pink grapefruit bitterness rounds with just a touch of sweet biscuity malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. An unbalanced hop bomb that works well for my taste buds…

So yes I really liked this beer. A nice double IPA from one of my favorite Colorado breweries. Nice amber color on the pour. Decent head retention. Full bodied double IPA in the Avery fashion we all love. I would say more balanced than Maharaja, so for those who think that one is a bit much this one may be a better one to start with. Nice hoppy, sticky mouthfeel that has a rather dry but very satisfying finish. Lingers great on the palate. Definitely give this one a shot you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful. I’m not sure it’s as great as many of the avery’s I love, but it’s a unique beer. Very clear amber, fine white head. There’s tons of grapefruit hops to it, a very dry, lingering finish.

Courtesy hopscotch. Pours a fairly clear copper amber color, with a small off white head. Smells of big piney hops, some grapefruit citrus, and hints of caramel malt. Big hop bitterness up front, but thew malts really show up in the finish leaving a sweeter aftertaste. Nothing unusual, but a very solid doubl IPA.
