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.

From the tap at Avery Brewery. If it can get better, I donít know where. There is no beer in heaven, but at Avery there is. A twelve ounce glass because they wonít serve a pint, too high alcohol content. Dark, rich amber color, great aroma, the hops, malts, one complete brew. Pure art. Avery Brewing gets the grand champion for this one. Dern near snake oil, itís so good.

Just didnít like it much. Funky nose and taste. Maybe it is just due to the cold that I have.

This is one of my favorite Imperial IPAís. No bitter or grapefruit aftertaste, which is a major requirement. Not quite as good as Omegatex, or Ruin Ten, but definitely worth a bottle or two when they go into production.

ccex (1000) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2015
22 oz bottle pours a clear golden orange with large white head and good lacing. Aroma is full of citrus hops, mango and pine resin. Taste is bitter but thankfully not too dank. There is only a slightly sweet malty backbone in the middle. Body is much lighter than I expected from a DIPA, with average carbonation and a slightly soapy mouthfeel. This one didnít take as long for me to finish as I thought it might. One of the more refreshing DIPAs Iíve tried, and one Iíl come back to.

A nice citrus hoppy aroma hits you when you first open the bottle. There is a good balance between the pine, citrus and hops when it comes to the flavor. This brew is a lot thinner than expected, which is great. I will be stocking up on more of this.

Very hoppy and not at all malty in any sense of the double ipa definition. It isn't super thick, but there is a nice substance to the beer. It has a bit of a bite in the aftertaste and isn't super smooth. Wouldn't order again, but it has satisfied my hop craving.
