3.4/5  rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

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 from bomber to pint glass.

A - The beer poured a solid amber-orange color with a hazy tint and fair amount of particles suspended throughout. Poured a nice 2 finger head with good retention.

S - Not nearly the hop character I expected only a bit of piney/earthy aromas from the hops. Much more prevalent was the caramel malt which offered a distinct sweetness.

T - Similarly to the aroma, not much hop character up front, in fact the front of the beer was entirely the caramel malt flavors. The flavor transitions to a mild hop profile of the piney/earthy flavors. Not much fruity or citrus hop character detected. The beer finishes with a medium bitterness which lingers for a fair amount of time.

M - Adequately carbonated though I also found the beer a bit cloying. I would like to see a bit more dryness in the front and better balance with the malt/hops.

D - Drinkable.

Overall, DuganA is a decent IPA though i found it to be far too sweet with an offering lacking of hop character. I am glad to have tried it but won't be coming back.
