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.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Slightly cloudy amber pour with a soapy white head. Aroma is hoppy, but actually somewhat subdued; mostly resiny/floral notes with a tiny bit of tropical fruit in the background. Flavor is great, one of the most balanced high ABV IPAs I’ve had. Hits most of the same notes as the nose, with a nice bitter finish. Great beer.

olio (7954) - 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.

lusikka (7492) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 1, 2015
650 ml bottle. Enjoyed at San Diego, CA. Pours a hazy orange amber colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sweet orange marmalade, floral notes and biscuit. Flavour is rather sweet and jammy with orange sweetness, herbal notes, English toffee, resin and biscuit. Medium bodied. Low-ish carbonation. Alcohol warms. Bottled about 10 months ago. Re-rate needed from a fresh batch.

ctipping (283) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2015
22 oz. bomber poured into a pint glass. Pours a deep golden color with a white fluffy head. The head lingers a bit leaving substantial lacing. Wonderful aroma. Very fresh and hoppy. Citrusy and a bit piney. Nary a hint of malt. Taste disappoints a little compared to the nose. The hop flavor isn’t as pronounced. It’s not overly malty, but the sweetness is just a bit too much. The aroma led me to believe it would be a wonderfully hoppy beer and the taste is kind of a letdown. Low carbonation gives it a creamy feel. Medium bodied. Good, but in the end it’s too malty to be all that great.

Mep3222 (889) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Malty sweet aroma with a bit of a pine resiny hop aroma, but it almost gives it a bit of a tropical finish to the aroma. Taste is very malty but somehow not sticky. Piney hops balance the malt very nicely. Has the bitter resinous finish, but it is muted by the malt. There is a bit of medicinal hops in the finish as well. This is a full flavored malty IPA, but surprisingly good, and I tend to not like the piney ipas, I think the balance between malt and hops helps with this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sinfull (1117) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Hazy , deep golden color. Big off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits and pine , but some weird funky notes make it messy and dirty. Great , bold , hoppy , Avery's bitterness in taste , balanced by sweet, caramel malt.

Wow, I can?t believe I?ve never rated this... Candi sugar, brown sugar, citrusy hops. Deep gold color, clean complexion. Malty and more sweet than hoppy, orangey citrus, a bit of bubblegum; alcohol fairly hidden considering the alcohol. Medium to medium full, smooth. Seems like this might be the precursor to the new IPA/Trippels that seem to be all the rage now.
