What’s in a name? The brewer’s mantra, "more hops," is taken as far as possible in this beer. A deep amber body balances the bitterness and makes that long day at work seem a distant memory. Just ask for a pint of "the dank!!" This beer is also dry hopped with whole flower, Cascade hops.

On tap at the Boulder brewpub. A nice start to a Colorado vacation. Straightahead version of the style. Nice.

Sample at Vine Street. Orange in color, it’s got a malty aroma and a crisp light body where the dry finish gives notes of malts and orange. Nice.

NachlamSie (3294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Pint at Vine Street. This is a hazy red with a permanent white head. Aroma is of raisins, toffee, toasted brown sugar and grapefruit and pine for a departure from the style. Palate is medium with some sticky residual sugars. A little metallic bite I find commonplace in ESBs is present along with rich, sweet malt flavors of toffee, brown sugar, dried figs and an assertive citrus/pine hop bite for balance. This isn’t my preferred style, but I can hang with this one.

Tap @ Mtn. Sun. Clear orangey golden with creamy head and good lacing. Fresh, reminds me of roses or bath soap. Nice light bitterness and a touch of sour. Light bodied. (I think this was on nitro.)

jmgreenuk (7837) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 9, 2013
Tap at the Vine Street Pub, Denver. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is big classic IPA hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a hoppy liqourice palate and a strange and not entirely pleasant bitter finish.
