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.

superspak (2833) - Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/9/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange zest, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellence DIPA style. All around great balance and complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and fairly crisp to drink for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

ElCapitan22 (135) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2014
Pours nice gold with an orange hue to it. Has nice lacing, but no head retention. Smells piney and hoppy, but tastes slightly sweet in addition. Quite the nice beer.

robotopera (35) - USA - NOV 20, 2014
Draft @ Hopgeist 2014. Strawberry amber in color. Minimal head. Clear. Bready flavor that quickly mellows out to a smooth malty finish. Strong initial resiny flavor that is very fleeting.

P: Murky orange with a one finger head. S: Tropical and piney hops, mango puree, and light crystal malt. T: Grapefruit, dank, piney and alcohol. M: Medium body, dry and bitter. O: The alcohol was unpleasant, they do a better job hiding the alcohol in there big fat stouts. I don’t understand this.
