COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Loaded with a ridiculous amounts of hops, the Chopdank is full bodied and high in ABV. Orange in hue like its little bro Nanticoke Nectar, this brew is unmistakably hoppy on the nose. Not overly bitter, the first wave has notes reminiscent of pineapple and melon that transition into citrus and intense grapefruit. Eventually finishing with a slightly piney bitterness.

16 oz. can via local trade. Thanks again, Tammy! Pours a barely cloudy orange witha very small white head that settles into a ring and thin film while leaving a good deal of lace in the glass. Notes of orange and tangerine citrus, pineapple, melon, oils, pine, tea, and resin. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and an initially sweet, eventually boozy and bitter mouthfeel. Good, but more intense than they advertise and not nearly as gentle.

Can thanks to Dennis. Pours a clear orange gold with small frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is strong dank, grapefruit pith, resin. Medium body, juicy, dank, nice bitterness, oily, very good.

Can. Pours orangish amber hazy with off white head. Aroma is Sweet malty fruity citrus. Taste is very sweet with a malty backbone and hints of citrus and fruity hops. Good but a little balanced for my personal preference.

Thanks Bobby. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-bronzed amber color with a decent transparency about it. Thin white foamy head quickly dissipated. The smell had the danky sweet onion over top of a nice sweet caramel backbone. The taste had the sweet danky onion up front. Caramel backbone was there - semi sweet, but lasting. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Wet sweet onion to sweet malty finish, different yet enjoyable. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation rides fairly low on this one. Bitterness shows a nice bite and yet the caramel malt wants to show a decent balance. Good, sticky, but not cloying. Overall, really nice DIPA, just all around, would I have this again, of course I would!

This is a special IPA. Lots of bold flavors in both the hop and a bit of the malt. Only thing I could maybe find as a flaw for some people is that it may come off as a little boozy. Easily one of my favorites.

16 oz can poured into teku. A: Surprisingly dark reddish copper color. Initial rush of carbonation that dissipates quickly. Thin ivory head that eventually recedes into a thin ring. Moderate amount of intricate sticky lacing. S: Honey, raisin, canteloupe, lemon, lavender, bit of alcohol and dank earth. T: Really bready/malty. Honey and graham crackers but with plenty of bite from the hops, pepper, pine, earth, and spice. Long hop finish. M: Nice balance of carbonation and silkiness. O: Quite a malt bomb for a DIPA. Different. Very tasty.

Fresh 16oz can at Dank Day Lots of candied citrus, tropical fruit. Mid palate is juicy and sweet before drying out significantly. Never cloying or overly sweet. Well balanced, with an emphasis on the hops

Amber color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, light caramel, citrus, some tropical fruits. Taste of citrus, pine, resiny caramel, grapefruit, bitter light alcohol.

4.4
Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Pours darker than expected amber in color with a beige head. The aroma is dank and smoothly sweet like hop candy sugar. The flavor is big and dank and dry and delicious, smoothly super dank! There is definitely a bitter ending.
