This beer... It was alright butdidn't have the crisp bitterness I'd expect from a double IPA, also the carbonation was intense.

I had it from a bottle (22 oz), and poured into a wine glass. I started my pour slow which was good as it immediately foamed very thick almost overflowing.

I got most of the way through but had to pour the last 4 oz out as the carbonation made it too hard to drink.

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.

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!

A - Fantastic clear bronze with humongous, thick, sticky head leaves so slow. TONS of cling remains.

S - The expected hops and malt found in most IPAs is not there. Bitterness, but almost metallic.

T - Similarly, the taste lacks malt, very bitter, not much malt or hop character. Also a little metallic.

M - Balance is to bitter. Not much in way of sweet malt.

D - One is more than enough. Very one dimensional. Sure looks good though.
