COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Si tratta di una quasi-double IPA realizzata con luppolo californiano e creata in collaborazione con don Bill Green (illustratore del fan club de Il grande Lebowski, da cui il nome Dude)... elementi che dicono già molto su cosa aspettarsi.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
2013-06-24, draught at La Bossette, Lausanne, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Dark amber color with small head. Nice caramel aroma and some hop; compared to Hobo, more caramelly; hint of crystal. Good body strength; semi-sweet caramel flavor, with good hopping, more aromatic, fruity and resiny than the Hobo.
Very good, balanced.

2013-06-24, can, from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, bb 14 Sept 2013, 7-5-8-3-15=38
Bright amber color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is a nice blend of sweet caramel and orangey hops, with a peppery final. Good body strength; caramel flavor with moderate residual sweetness; it has a good component of biscuits/cookies; strong hopping, with pleasant resins and decent fruity touch; long final.
Dominant caramel, therefore more American Strong than the self defined Double IPA.
Good and clean beer.

TBone (11895) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Dark nut brown color, good beige head. At first nice exotic fruity hoppyness, later a bit musty woodyness. Medium-bodied. Watery front for this ABV. Sweetish resiny and a bit plasticky flavor. Idea is ok but something is missing.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2012

Bov (9050) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2012
from Bier-Bienne - hazy dark red-amber beer with a solid creamy beige foam; very strong hoppy aroma, piney with notes of berries and quince marmalade; a good malt body, rounded palate and some sweetness before a respectable yet absolutely not aggressive bitterness; very long hoppy aftertaste of red fruits and pine needles - very drinkable

FatPhil (8564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 6, 2013
Tap ( Viisi Pennia, Helsinki ) < br > Nice deep woody red, huge rocky head. Big fruity caramelly aroma. Smells like it might be sticky. Relatively mild palate, soft and smooth, carbonation quite refreshing. Tons of caramel in the taste. Absolutely classic US style sweet strong hoppy IPA. Tons of sweet aromatic hops, but a good level of bitter hops too. Maybe a little bit too sweet and sticky, but drinkability high. Alas some alcohol appears later as it warms. Still remains highly drinkable.
