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.

Tap at Vine Street - these folks have a way with pales and ipas - great pour - cloudy bronze, huge, fluffy head that leaves behind rings of foam as you drink - nice, earthy hop profile - strong, too - more like an ipa - very full, creamy body - a bit of malt sweetness, but mostly dry and bitter - a bit earthy, almost nutty - a great session ale.

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.)
