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.

ByTheirLimpin (94) - New York, USA - JAN 23, 2016
From a bomber to a pilsner glass. First hit of the nose for me was an odd lemon pledge. Hazy amber and yeasty pour. Big first taste. Apricot syrup booze right off the bat. Rounded malt supporting the middle. Very well balanced through the clean fairly dry finish. The crisp green apple at the finish left me wanting more. Super complex but well balanced.

Concealer (1040) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber. Clear copper with a foamy, off white head that lasts in spots and laces. Aromas of grapefruit, pine, biscuit, light earthy mineral notes, herbs, pear and banana. Flavor is grapefruit, pine resin, light biscuit, earthy spice, herbs. Medium bodied, smooth with a slightly dry, warm and bitter end.

blackflag321 (592) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bomber, snifter. Pleasing clean gold color. Mild balance of sweet malt to start. As it warms it becomes more complex. The bitterness increased and the balance of malt and hops with a hint of sweetness impressed my palate. Very interesting!

nickel (817) - - DEC 22, 2015
Honey, flowers, citrus are dominant in the aroma with some notes of pine. Taste is a good mix of malt, grapefruit, pines and honey. Everything is more contrast and explosive compared to, for example, Hardcore IIPA from BrewDog. This beer is really bitter. Every IBU unit is noticeable all the time. But this high bitterness level is not disgusting, but magically pleasant.

DandyWolfFloyd (856) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Aroma - caramel malts and heavy piney hops, as well as citrus. Appearance - hazed orange body with an off white that reaches high and slowly fades. Good lacing. Taste - the flavor is a sweet caramel malt with a healthy dose of piney hops as well as a blend of citrus. Palate - body is medium, the texture is oily, average carbonation, and a long strong hop bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bookman10 (809) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2015
Pours a cloudy, bright golden-yellow, with minimal head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Aroma smells of apricot or spoiled peaches, with a touch of hops. Flavor is very sweet (almost verging on barley wine sweetness), with apricot/peach, some hops, slight booziness, and a slightly bitter finish. Not particularly piney, dank, or resinous in my experience.

CapFlu (4959) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Lasting white foamy head that dissipates to the edge of the glass. Paint stripper aroma. Angry clementines. Not terribly good.

olio (8470) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
65 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego. Bottled 10/2014.
Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Sweet piney caramel aroma, hops are a bit mild, some apricot notes too. Orange on the flavor, resin, malts and apricot. A bit old, low carbonation, decent flavor though.
