Hop Variety: Chinook, Centennial and Columbus Malt Variety: Two-row barley, dark aromatic, caramel malt Lupulin Rapture Incarnate! As fervent  devotees of hops, we found ourselves on a quest to create a transcendental IPA capable of quenching our voracious lupulin desires. Our mantra became "unity of bitterness, hop flavor and aroma." Enlightened, duganA IPA was born: A brutally bitter, dank, piney and resinous ale designed for those seeking a divine hop experience.

    The aroma is hoppy off the chain! Very bold and pleasantly aggressive. Amber-orange with a fluffy white head. Medium bodied and smooth to the pallette. Nice carbonation with a bitter finish. A winner!

    Pours fuzzy orange with a lilty white head. Faint aroma. Mouthfeel is smoooooooth. Flavor has light hops, sweet citrus and pine. Decent. No complaints.

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    It pours a solid amber and burnt-orange with a thin and bubbly white head and average lacing. An aroma of caramel malts, hops, grapefruit, pine, perfume, citrus notes, and light spices. The mouthfeel is smooth, thick, and rich. Flavors of caramel malts, hops, light pine, grapefruit and citrus, perfume, and spiciness. It's okay .. but it has perfume in it..

    Bottled. Orangeish amber colour with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma is a lot of fruits, some spruce, mild resiny notes as well as some balancing maltyness. Flavour is quite similar along with some rather earthy and grassy bitterness. Fruity and grassy in the finish.

    Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy and evergreen with a firm undertone of grapefruit and just a whisper of sweetness. It couldn’t be any better! It pours a clear amber with a thick, fluffy, persistent off-white head and leaves some respectable lacing. Flavor is decidedly hoppy, very much like drinking a pine tree, with a grapefruit undertone and minimal bitterness - quite tasty. Smooth texture is a little on the thick side and nice and rough on the edges, leaving a hoppy and persistent tingle. I recommend this to all IPA lovers!

    large amounts of pine and sweet fruity malts in the aroma. body is big and sticky. taste is big too. bitter pine and a little candy sweetness as well. not as good as the amazing Maharaja, but pretty tasty and aromatic nonetheless.

    Nov. 2009 - Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing. Pour was orange with foamy head. Lots of tropical aromas...pink grapefruit and some other melony notes. The flavor followed suit. There was a lot of sweetness and even though there was a lot of bitterness, the sweetness still made it not so easy to get down the nectar of the islands. Just ok.

    Pour is orange-gold with a creamy, fluffy white head. Aroma definitely signifies IPA--huge floral, pine, and citrus notes. Not much balance here which is not a problem for me. Hoppy, bitter taste. Solid IPA for sure.

    This beer has a bright hoppy aroma. It’s mostly standard but good American pine/citrus/floral. The citrus makes the aroma stand out as it’s brighter and sweeter than most similar notes. It’s not quite the electric tangerine of some DIPAs (can’t remember what I’m thinking of right now), but there’s some assertive mandarin orange/orange jellybean character. The flavor is significantly drier than Maharaja. I can see what Avery was thinking with this one, but the beer tends to get a bit blandly bitter. Some paint thinner notes creep in around the edges and in the finish. I would have almost preferred if they had pushed this beer all the way into a California/San Diego-style DIPA. Alas, it still has that thicker mouthfeel and, I suspect that if the hops weren’t so dominant some fruity malt notes would emerge. Still, this is a very good beer and a nice change for Avery.

    Bottle: Poured a bright orangey color ale with a huge creamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of lupulin with nice citrus notes and some subtle light piney notes. Taste is also very nice with great notes of lupulin and citrus with some balanced bitterness and a nice caramel malt backbone. Body is above average with nice creamy texture and good carbonation. Very well done and one of the best beer I have tasted form this brewer.
