5/5 rDev +32.3%
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.

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.

Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. A dark orange or ruby red color. Very clear and filtered look with large carbonation bubbles that lead to a small one finger head. The head is off white and has very sticky lace.
Smell is wonderful!! Bright citrus and piney aromas. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple and mango. Pine forest on a rainy day. There is also some earthy notes and sweet malts. Melds together quite nice.
Taste is quite bright and bitter. Pine needles, pink and yellow grapefruits, orange, pineapple some mild mango and a ton of bitter, lip smacking goodness. The earth and yeasty notes don't come out in the taste as much as in the nose. Good thing. This one reminds me of Abrasive and Heady. Maybe the little brother or distant cousin.
Mouth is full and almost chewy for an IPA. Body is huge and the carbonation medium but on the spritzy side. Finish is everlong and very wet with a fantastic bitterness that increases with every swallow.
Overall I must say how much I loved this brew. I think this is a worthy contender for Heady and Abrasive but only that, a contender. Not bad to be mentioned with those high caliber IPA's. I suggest you try this one even if it costs you a ton to trade for. It is worth the chance. I am lucky and have great trading partners like Jasonrm72 that send me stuff like this as a surprise. Thanks again Jason.

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.

Deep amber colored body with a huge frothy, creamy head; very sticky lacing. Bold pine and floral aromas; spicy. Evenly mixed flavors of mild caramel and honey with a soothing, even-keeled hop bitterness to balance things out. Medium-heavy body; smooth and creamy; semi-dry finish.
A very nice discovery of a very tasty, well-balanced and subtly complex IPA. The flavors, aromas, and look are big and bold yet drinking this wonderful ale is quite approachable. You get the hugeness of things without getting sledgehammered. Well worth checking out...
