3.63/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Beautiful copper color. Lasting mostly-white head. Sticky lacing throughout. Initial punch to the nose of pine and grapefruit. Secondary sniff a subtle hint herb. Medium body. Begins with a citrus punch then mellows to a hint of caramel and finishes with a hefty dry-hopped resin kick. Medium warmth throughout. However, strange ability to session this. It will sneak up on you. Really enjoyed this beer. A refreshing take on a style oozing with excessive alpha acidity.

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

No obvious date code on this one.

A – Head is nearly non-existent, lacing left is thin and light.

S – Piney, metallic, and earthy. Light citrus notes, lemon, lime, and not much else. Pretty meh.

T – Bitter hop characteristics, some floral hops as well, a little citrus, and some pine, nothing too complex.

M – Clean and almost crisp, has a bit of a lingering sticky sweetness to it.

O – Not bad, not great, good IPA, but nothing remarkable here.

16oz can served in a standard pint glass.

L - lightly hazed copper color with a white head that thinned but still left a sheet of sticky lacing.

S - around the rim of the can it reads, "citrusy - piney - floral - resiny - dank". Smells mostly like pine resin to me.

T - pine resin with a hint of a medicinal taste before a mix of bitterness and sticky sweetness finish things off.

F - medium bodied with mild carbonation.

O - fair example of the style.
