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.

Hazy amber color; medium sized creamy head. Nice fruity hop aroma: citrus fruits, with a complement of resins, and apricots, sweet and jammy. Strong body, with sweet toffee flavor; powerful hopping, with a pleasant mix of soft resins and fruits. The finish becomes more bitter.
Quite elegant. A straight and sweet Double IPA, it suits well my taste, but there is no surprise in this beer.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Quite a Lovely Double IPA. Yes, Lovely. It packs the bitte punch of most DIPAs, but with a sublte, restrained touch. Highly fruity, this beer masks its bitterness with a charming, sweet bouquet and an equally sweet first taste. After a few sips, you begin to notice the strong hoppiness, and the slightly sticky aftertaste hammers home the point. A nice departure from the typical, over-the-top hoppy DIPA. I loved it.

Bottle, thanks to larsniclas. Amber/orange colored beer with a big offwhite/yellowish head. Pine apple aroma, citrus, bread, milky notes, pear and sweet apples. Bitter hop flavor, fruity, cereal notes, pine apple, grass, hay, strong without bringing too much alcohol.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Stimmiger, eher dunkler Hopfenantrunk mit ansprechendem Hefearoma. Dieses in Teilen milde Aroma wirkt hier etwas muffig. Die Hopfenaromen bleiben gleich intensiv, sprich auch dunkel. Zum Ende etwas intensiver, der Hopfen steigt leicht. Hefiger, stark hopfiger und frischerer Abgang. 12/10/10/12/11/11

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is a clear light amber color with a fluffy white head and some sticky lacing. S: The nose is full of tropical, fruity hops which give it that nice pineapple and tangerine aroma. There’s some definite sweet caramel malt in there as well. T: The flavor is a bit on the sweet side with the same fruity qualities that are present in the nose. Luckily, there is a good amount of piney bitterness to balance out the sweetness. M: The body is a bit thick and sticky and the carbonation is moderate, which helps the beer from becoming syrupy. D: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It was balanced (which isn’t always my thing with IPAs) and quite easy to drink for 8.5%.

Oakes (15803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
Golden-bronze. Citrusy, piney and lots of sweet, syrupy malts, too. Has a more balance finish, with the syrupy stuff dropping out leaving a hop focus.
