Fresh Dry Hopped Double Red Ale. Looking to drain the main vein on a 420 mile road trip, el Danko casually slipped into the dankest Nugget hop field known to man. Stupefied by the pungent aromas, his eyes rolled back as he fell into a sea of sticky buds. After 4 days of being pinned to the vines, he thought he was a goner. Believing he was hallucinating as every woodland creature, horny toad, and Sasquatch rushed past his stuck self, he suddenly became petrified as he witnessed a million army ants marching his way devouring everything in their path. He said one last Hail Mary as the ants began to chew on him and the vines. With one final gasp, he jerked free and hauled balls out of the field with biting ants and sticky hops covering his pruned body. Desperately in search of ant bite relief he belly flopped in the 1st oasis he saw, which was a fermenter at SweetWater. Fuddied up, el Danko’s teabag plunge turned this brew into a double red from the bleeding ant bites, and dry hopped this bad boy from the fresh Nugget hops that were stuck to his pitiful self.

11/30/11. On tap. Dark red pour with a small khaki head. Very hoppy aroma, very compact and intense, but not all that complex, with a bit of citrus and leafy green aspects. Slightly sweet, malty flavor at first with chocolate and a bit of caramel as well, followed by lingering hops that are concentrated and slightly sour. Not bad, not great.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 1, 2012

Flavors are of pine, tangerine, orange peel, herbal and tea like. Lively bubbles, dry with a spicy hop presence.

Suttree (6537) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Very dark red, nice foamy beige head. Smells great - pine resin and a cookie-like sweetness. Really balanced, with a tasty, doughy malt base and a rough sticky hop bite. Lots of brown sugar, too. I could drink a lot of this...

decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Brown pour with foamy tan head. Aroma is resiny hops and caramel malt. Flavor is resiny hops, hinto abv and sweet caramel malt. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Nice 4-8-7-4-15

Cybercat (6336) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Aroma is strongly hoppy, like dry hops rather than evergreen, with hints of leaves, pine and cloves. It pours a dark, semi-transparent, muddy brown with a fairly thick pale golden-tan head. Rich flavor has firm tones of hops, molasses, caramel and malt along with fruity, earthy and floral hints. Smooth texture has full body and a fair amount of fizz. The wacky story on the bottle is a hoot!

TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Gift from my friend Noel. Gorgeous copper pour with a tall, fluffy tan head. Lots of caramel and malt in the aroma along with soft citrus, floral hops, pine and resins. Taste is big caramel, chewy malt, floral hops, pine resins, citrus notes, toffee and hints of tropical fruit. Body is medium-full and rather chewy with a dense, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, chewy , sweet malt, pine notes, hop resins, soft citrus and pleasant floral notes. Damn tasty!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
In short: A sticky malted burgundy ale with powerful resinous hops. Good tasty stuff.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh about 2 weeks after receiving it from grownfool, thanks a lot Brian
The look: Murky burgundy body topped by a medium off-white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is hops resin, red berries, soft red liquorice candy. Taste has a very heavy malt backbone with a rich fruity toffee/caramel and lost of biscuits. That beer packs a lot of sweetness but the aggressive hoping makes you forget about it. Resinous, hop cones, pine needles and more… I’ve had beers similar to this that were classified as Double IPA here on ratebeer. It’s now past midnight, I’m on my third beer and I’m typing to type this rating but my fingers are all orange and gross, so I just an epiphany… the craftbeer industry is funded by the Cheetos industry!!!
