This one pours a nice light amber with a whispy white head and some spotted lacing. The aroma is pleasant fruit and light hops. This drinks very smoothly with a sweet malt backbone with just a small kick of hoppy bitterness and a touch of pine needle and sweet fruit to round it out. Very refreshing and hides the alcohol well.

sonnycheeba (3745) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Tap. Pours clear gold with average, fizzy white head; good retention and some lacing. Aroma is grassy and floral hops, cereal and biscuit malt, citrus fruit, pine, herbs, and faint funk. Flavor is balanced malt and hops (light bitterness) with faint citrus esters; dry finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

Poured into a tulip glass from a bomber. Sparkling orange colored with a mid-sized off-white head. Big citrus and pine notes. Flavor was quite piney with the aforementioned citrus notes. Nicely balanced sweetness with bittering hops. Mild bitter finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2012 On cask at the brewery. Poured a golden orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated, very good lacing. The aroma is great with smells of citrus, pine, big weed, and grass. Taste is citrus, pine, caramel, ganja, and a touch of bread ending with a big bitter finish. Sticky mouthfeel with low carbonation. Nice!

Damico (2680) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours unclear orange golden in color with a small bubbly off white head. The aroma is plenty of muted sweet and citrus notes that are pleasant on the nose. The flavor is similar, a bit of spicy hops with the 7 hops flavors blended well to bring smooth flavor on the palate.

Dry Dock is Auroraís best kept secret - a small, incredibly active and lively brewery with spirit, vivaciousness, and a wall of awards that back up their success. One of my favorite beers from Dry Dock is their Double IPA which I had the pleasure of sampling with other Colorado Double/Imperial IPAs. Itís an orange marmalade color with a light thin foam on the top, allowing the aroma of graham rackers, marshmallow, pear and, oddly, banana baby food. Itís not at all bitter, but not cloyingly sweet. The Dry Dock Double IPA packs a lot of favor without indulging in excess, and that seems to be a hard thing to brew. It lacks the serious IBUs of a regular IPA, but delivers a deep, satisfying flavor of clover honey and sweet malt sugars on a slightly oily body with medium carbonation. While not the most complex Double IPA, Dry Dock is showing its flag with this beer - a harbinger of future awards and victories at beer competitions.
