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.

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.

Bomber. Pours a bright coppery amber with a four-finger off-white head. Aroma of floral, resin and earthy hops. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is floral over caramel. Some definite fruit. Pine? Don’t know where it went. Mouth puckering. Very bitter, somewhat astringent and incredibly tasty.
