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.

Leighton (13520) - 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.

Oakes (13270) - 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.

rlgk (12831) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2010
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.

brokensail (12479) - Orange County, 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%.

Koelschtrinker (12151) - 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

bhensonb (12134) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2009
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.
