COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Theis (13777) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2008
UPDATED: APR 30, 2013 Draft at Southern Sun. Dark rusty red, unfiltered. Mild and mellow sweet cherry scented malt nose, some notes of fruit cocktail and maraschino cherries along with a sweetened, syrupy cedar wood note. Mellow texture, but still has some crusty, bready malts throughout... overall tends to be sweet from start to finish, with some sugary wood and tea leaves. Hop presence is noticeable but subdued... faint bitterness but does has some grapefruit notes that play well with the cherry/wood malt character.

dpjuart (1085) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Draft at Mountain Sun, Boulder, CO, 8/13/08. Pours red with off-white head. Nose is all hops, pine, citrus, and danktasticness. Taste is caramel backbone with mild bitter and a good amount of piny hop flavor. Not too terribly bad.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2008
This beer is very sessionable and so well balanced, and goes with just about everything on their menu. I mean this is really impressive. Fruity citrus hops in the nose, with a bit of black tea and a medium bodied toffee/caramel maltiness, with some herbal hoppiness coming through to balance the malty sweetness in the finish.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2008
Caramel nose with some fruity hops. Deep amber to brown color. Initial taste was very malty, but then came some decent hops to balance it out. Mild carbonation, full body, smooth finish. Good beer for just about any meal.

JaffaHawk23 (71) - Broomfield(via Iowa City), Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2008
UPDATED: APR 11, 2008 On tap at the brewery on south side of Boulder. Place is fittingly called Southern Sun. Beautiful sunny day in Boulder with a beautiful girl and an extremely hoppy and beautiful beer.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 17, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Yeasty cloudy amber with a giant mushrooming head. This has a delicious aroma of pine and citrus. I taste mild chocolate and oranges to the flavor. Perfect level of medium bitterness. Not over the top, but enough. Fine beer indeed.

brought a growler home after dinner, which is a 1/2 gal ball mason jar. cool, but completely disfunctional as a beer vessel. really like this beer - good hoppy/malty flavor, opaque amber color that pours with nice head. good bitter finish that leaves you looking for another big sip. mix half/half with XXX pale for a "kind crippler" which is wicked good, but will sneak up on you.
