500, capped. Pours a murky burnished dark amber with a loose white head. Big tangy pineapple nose--not really dimensional or amazingly fresh smelling, but very pleasing in its mildness. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, pineapple, and a bit of toast on the mid palate. Mild sweet finish. This is one of those DIPAs that tastes good because theres seemingly no way *not* to produce something halfway pleasing with an ingredient lineup like this. Weve all had bad ones, but, despite being nothing out of the DIPA ordinary, this beer is a complete delight to drink.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours golden/amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral and pine hops and a little caramel hops. Flavor really strong of floral hops. Average texture, a little thin for this style. A pretty good beer though.

Fruktig humledoft och ganska blommig. Smaken bestr av frukt, blommor och mycket tutti frutti som tyvrr gr den lite tvlig.

Nickls (2426) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle, argo0 tasting. Golden orange brown thats clearer. Bit dank and earthy hoppiness that comes through brightly in the aroma. Nice woodiness, almost cedar, for the hops and a good deal of malt balance but doesnt take over. Medium body and bright carbonation. Solid enough.

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2011
Clear amber pour with a minimal off-white head leaving little lace. Nose is ripe fruit malt and a hint of pine hops. Medium body has candy, ripe fruit, booze and caramel. Somewhat sticky and syrupy, this is too sweet for an Imperial IPA. The hop profile is too reticent and simple. Likely better closer to the source.

popery (2072) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Bitter caramel. Theres practically no delicacy in the hop flavor. Its a dark amber/ruby beer with a small beige head. The aroma is boring, dull citrus/pine hops and fruity malt - raisins, caramel, toast. Taste has a fair bit of sugary sweetness but it quickly gets pointlessly bitter. I dont mean to be too harsh on this beer, but it has a combination of factors that I dont particularly care for in a DIPA: lots of crystal malt flavor, bland bitterness and a weak, uninteresting hop aroma. Mouthfeel is thick, a bit syrupy, and the lack of carbonation also makes things a bit watery in the finish.. Booze is apparent. Between this and the oddly bad 1/2 Idjit!, Dugges is 0/2 for me, so far.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bottle from blutt59. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is really spicy, fruit, and a little earth. Taste is cinnamon, light earth, and lots of grapefruit.

Cavie (4336) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy blutt59. Clear orange color with a light ring of white. Aroma is....man I dont even know. Strange though. Flavor is slightly hoppy, with some lemon flavors that dry out bigtime. Weird finish.
