Picked up a bomber at a Temecula 76 gas station (wish gas stations back home carried craft...and I mean real craft). Halfway through the bottle and I'm having a hard time believing this is a Double IPA! For one thing, the hops are nonexistent except a tad in the aftertaste....however, overall this is a really good ale. Maybe a Double Pale??? I'd get this again though, enjoyed it!

On tap at Barley and Hops

A- Dark amber color with a finger of of white head. Great lacing.

S- Pale malt and citrus hops.

T- Bitter hops up front. Dank, and more hempy than citrusy. Some orange notes. Sweet caramel malt in the middle. Finish is bitter with some alcohol presence.

M- Feel is thick and chewy with a medium level of carbonation.

O- A tasty, but somewhat predictable DIPA. Good, but there are so many other locals which I would reach for first.

This one is better than the reviews suggest in my opinion. It looks fantastic when poured - a nice bronze with a thick creamy head. Its smell and taste are not typical of other IPA's or Double IPA's and I think that might have affected the ratings. As others have said the expected whollop of hops isn't really at the forefront, but it is there masked somewhat by a citrusy grapefruit flavor. It also seems to have sort of a Belgian effervescence and creaminess. So the Dude doesn't really fall in with IPA convention, but I liked its uniqueness.
