Dulachan is Good!
Overall: Bangin' for a local Erie beer, best one around for sure (IPA wise) with a close second being Good Vibes down in Meadville from VooDoo.. At 5.6% There is a huge, hoppy hit and a great cloudy, frothy mouthful. Dunno why it's avg is <90, because it's danky! Definitely a sessionable IPA and makes things feel like a sunny Irish day. No stand up to Heady Topper, but I am sure glad it's here to be had!
A: Beautiful haze, golden summer sunset appearance, unfiltered does the trick.
S: Nice grapefruit, citrus waft
T: Really a smack of lemon malt, with tingly spicy finish, does not linger and leaves a crave for more.
M: Again unfiltered, so very filling in the mouth. Able to swish and turn to foam before guzzle. Awesome and hefty ipa. Very satisfying drink.

Decent IPA I received in a trade. Nice resinous piney hop character. Nothing crazy or ground breaking here. Just a good local beer.

M-Medium bodied, nice carbonation and some hop resins.

O-A good local IPA that I got in a trade. Glad I tried it.

Better than average IPA. Had it the past two Saint Patricks days- really the only good green beer I've ever had.

They have any interesting complex beers but the IPA is pretty darn straightforward. A tad too bitter in my estimation for an IPA to make not a session IPA but drinkable for sure.

Categorized as an American IPA, I would venture to call this Erie PA's rendition of a West-Coast IPA. Without a doubt, Dulachan can compete with the likes of Green Flash and Lagunitas. However, weighing-in at a respectable 5.6% A.B.V., Dulachan is sessionable to the point whereby it must be considered the premiere picnic beer for the craft crowd tending to the responsibilities that come along with adulthood.

A pillowy head forms when poured into a glass--and little is lost when you crack a can (concealed) on Presque Isle. The head dissipates rapidly, but let's just call that Mother Nature and Father Time's way of encouraging you to drink-up.
