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.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Nose is very layered, but distinct. Toffee, caramel, a boat load of hops, almost to the point where you can smell the stickyness. Candy like smelling. Head is mostly white with some carbonation, and a hazy orange color. Taste is Acidic, but lots of citrus notes. Pungent and not round. Finishes with residual sweetness, a mouthful of bitterness, and lots of orange/lemon zest. Enjoyability 5/5.

Very hoppy and not at all malty in any sense of the double ipa definition. It isn't super thick, but there is a nice substance to the beer. It has a bit of a bite in the aftertaste and isn't super smooth. Wouldn't order again, but it has satisfied my hop craving.

Poured from 1.6 pf bottle a hazy golden with white head and lacing. Aroma of pine and light citrus, floral. Taste of pine resins and pineapple. Sliky mouthfeel. I liked the lightness of this IPA very much, it was not a citrus bomb at all. One of the better IPA’s I have had In awhile.
