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.

Bottle… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is all about pine sap with a small spray of peach or apricot. Medium to full-bodied and oily with busy carbonation. The malty flavor is big on toffee sweetness followed by a good amount of fruity, piney bitterness. Finishes bittersweet.

The pour is a cloudy orange, much like a typical double ipa. Aroma has a very piney scent, much like many other colorado ipas. The taste is quite exceptional with the piney hoppiness and not to mention the resin. Simcoe is quite pronounced, though I believe there are some other hop strains in here as well. Though its very one sided in terms of bitterness, its still better balanced than many other of the extreme ipas we’ve come to expect from colorado. Aftertaste has a lot of green veggies like brussel sprouts especially. Very delicious.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Tasted 11/24/09. Caught a wisp of the hoppy aromas upon opening. First pour is filtered with a reddish amber hue. Finger width of bubbled bone white head. Aromas of total hops! Nice complexity with hints of grapefruit and citrus. Candy and pine. Mildly resinous and estery. Good nose! Rather full bodied with a total accent on the hoppy character. Nice bitterness and dry finish. The malts are toasty and solid. They are just overwhelmed by the hop dominance. The balance sways to the hops, but still has a nice meld and balance of flavor. Modest effervescence. Very nice and much drier than The Maharaja. But not quite as good.

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 (3637) - 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 (9525) - 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).

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.

22 oz bomber. Pours an orange vistalite with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange citrus and hops. Taste of grapefruit, mango and citrus hops.

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…
