Thanks to Mike for handing this one over to me. Pours a swampy and murky orange and burnt sienna color - the initial pour reveals some huge stringy looking sediment before it gets lost in the intense haze of the beer. The slightly off-white head settles quickly into a thin cover atop the unfiltered brew.
The aroma is pretty light overall; mild citrus fruit and skins. Light juicy characteristics, almost a little like taking a whiff of actually fruit-juice, if it wasn't for the underlying hop notes. Slight white pepper and tiny herbal notes make up a majority of the green notes. When all is said and done, it doesn't smell bad at all, but it's quite underwhelming. A bit mild and one-dimensional. I know it sounds funny to call an "IPA" one dimensional, because they're all just about the hops, right? Eh, not quite. This one just doesn't really stand out in any kind of way and the nose is slightly under-powered.
Dunegras is a bit watery on the mouth - very wet and leaving a bit to be desired. It starts off with a combo of citrus and mild peppery spice. As the nose indicated, the hop flavors remain mostly ashy and herbal. As the beers warms up, I pick up some lightly floral and very little pine notes, too, but still with heavy herbal overtones. The malt is pretty heavy and noticeable - breadiness and very light caramel sweetness back the hops up. Near the end, some more distinct fruits come out - light apricot and grapefruit. Aftertaste is mildly leafy and fruity, not too bitter, but not that sweet, either. The body is pretty thin and it leaves a sticky coating all around my mouth. Medium carbonation.
Definitely not a bad beer, just fairly unimpressive in basically all facets of the game. I enjoyed the gift from Mike, but this is something I would probably not purchase if I saw it in a store now. There's just too many other options and this is giving me no reason to every pick it over the rest.

A- Pours a slightly hazy copper with one finger of head. Nice lacing.
S -- Big citrus aroma, both orange pulp and a bit of grapefruit. Also some caramel malt. Nice.
T -- Similar to smell, nice citrus burst up front. Not overly bitter , but a decent bitterness throughout. Enough caramel malt to balance, but not too malty.
M -- Medium mouthfeel with nice amount of carbonation that gives some creaminess.
O -- Enjoyable IPA. Solid all around, and something I would have again, but not amazing.

Thanks to Wendall for this one!
A: Pours a dark copper color with some ruby tint to it. Small off-white head with little retention, reducing to a thin cap on top. Thin lacing forms around the entire glass.
S: A little on the weak side with some floral/grassy hops, a little bit of orange, and some caramel.
T: Some citrus fruits up front, mostly orange and a little lemon peal, slightly bitter. The second wave is full of bready and caramel malt.
M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly dry finish.
O: A middle of the road IPA. Better than average, but probably wouldn't be my go to.

The Dunegras fro the Bush is decent. I would classify it as a Belgian ipa. The beer poured a clear copper with white head that left a nice lace. The scent was definitely Belgian leaning. The taste was nicely balanced with Belgian sugar/malt present.the m outhfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this beer is sessionable and I would recommend it.

This is a nice IPA. Nothing that jumps out and makes it special, but definitly a decent IPA.
The beer pours a dark golden color with off-white head.
Floral and citrus hops dominate the aroma.
Taste is hoppy. Nice american IPA. Bitter and floral. Citrus tones are presant. Caramel malts really balance out the flavor.
