Dad & Dude's "Hopped Up IPA" - one of two Dad & Dude crafted IPAs on tap.

A - The beer was served in a standard pint glass and arrived a hazy orange amber color with a nice 1.5 finger white bubbly head. Good retention and gobs of lacing throughout the glass.

S - A nice blend of hop character in the nose. Floral earthy tones together with a mild citrus grapefruit/lemon blend. A mild biscuit aroma from the malty sweetness. A nice fruit presence.

T - Just like the nose as you're hit with a nice hop presence immediately. The aromatic character of the hops transitioned well to the fruit character: hints of mango, grapefruit, lemon zest though also some resinous pine and earthen tones. A medium bitterness blends nicely with a the malty sweetness and biscuit/bread flavors of the malt. Finishes clean and crisp with a lingering bitterness and fruity sweetness on the tongue. Hop-forward for sure, very good.

M - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Hides the alcohol well.

O - This is one of my favorite brews I've had at the Breweria. I haven't had any of their other IPAs but I really liked the hop-forward character and sweetness. I'd easily drink several of these and would recommend it.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy light copper amber with a smallish off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel / crystal malts with fruity, piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel / crystal malts with sugary fruits and a big bitter resiny, almost charred, hop finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's not well blended - very sweet, extract-like with a big bitter finish.

Poured on tap into a stemless like wine glass at Prost brewing company, from notes of Jan 2013. Originally entered under Prost brewing.

A real brown ruby gorgeous amber body color. Faint tan colored head with a creamy top presented with about a finger of head. Lacing coats in rings all over. This looks like a real jewel.

Nose is full of dank earthy tones. Bready malt escapes between the hop front quite a bit nicely.

Palate is rich in caramel and hop juice earth. Super chewy malts and green hops. Finishes with light caramel sweetness and balanced hop action. Earthy pine just whsipers on the breath when finishing.

Overall reminds me of a good balanced Deviant Dale's Ale. Delicious stuff.

Poured from the can into a Chimay goblet.

The beer pours a darker amber than your average IPA. It is just a bit cloudy and doesn't have quite enough head. The hop profile is intense with a bitterness that is a bit heavy. I'm getting some pine and citrus peel, but the finish is just bitter. There is some malt in the background, but it is overshadowed by the hop bitterness. This isn't overly impressive, but it's a pretty good beer.

Poured in to a tulip. 1 finger, white head. Slighty hazy, copper colored body.

Aroma was floral with some citrus and ofcourse some danky hop aroma. A bit caramely and malty with some biscuity/bready notes.

Taste was floral and citrusy upfront. Maltyness followed the fairly intense hop flavors with some malty, caramely notes. A bit bready. Slightly sweet, which helped the hop flavors. Finish was resiny and piney. Definitely some danky hop qualities. Mellow bitterness for the amount of hop flavors and finish.

Mouthfeel was medium body, medium car and a slightly sticky, resiny finish.

Good beer overall. Pleasant amount of hop flavors and sweetness. Well rounded and balanced.

A- Deep pumpkin orange with light, light auburn hue when held to the light. Soft, small white head that disappears rather quickly. Spider web builds on the top of the beer, light lacing on the glass. The head was uninspiring, but the color is magnificent.

S- The name describes the aroma, DANK. Light floral notes with some bright citrus. Big old pine notes dominate the hop aroma. There is just the slightest touch of some sweet malt in there. Pretty good, reminds me of the aroma from Odell IPA.

T- The taste is good. Piney hops jump off first followed by some light grapefruit. Maybe a little caramel in the back end. Smal lingering hop flavor. The flavor comes up a little short of the aroma, but not bad. No booze detectable. Not much bitterness.

M- Light, crisp, and higher in carbonation. Lighter in body. Carbonation opens up the hop aroma but almost makes this beer a little to "bubbly".

O- This is a good IPA. To be honest, this is better than i expected, not sure why. The bitterness is a little low for an IPA and it might be a little over carbonated, but the "dank" character is fitting and makes for a delicious hop-centric brew.

Lots of carbonation and a pleasant prickle on the tongue. The head dissipates after a while, so making a few pours rather than one pintful seems to work better. Yellow amber in the glass.

Quite a full, rich mouthful of hops. Rather mellow and bright. I wouldn't call it dank at all. Expansive flowery and fruity hop flavors with aromas to match. Tangy but not acidic. Plenty of bitterness as you sip, but it doesn't dominate the fruity flavors. Even a nice touch of biscuity malt comes through. All in all, a highly drinkable and flavorful IPA.

From the 16 oz can bought at Mayfair Liquor in Denver. Label says 6.5%. It also says "brewed and canned by Prost Brewing Co." but "distributed by Dude's Brews."

My second Dad & Dude's beer. Served in a pint glass.

Very hazy with heavy sediment swirling in the glass. The server said it was due to over carbonation. Hmmmm...

Very little hop aroma. Needs more for an IPA.

Taste was very bitter and grainy. Felt bad but I sent it back.

Tasted like a bad home brew. A little disappointed but I will give them the benefit of the doubt and keep trying their beers. The other beer I had from them was pretty good. Hopefully this was just a bad batch.
