I love hops as much as the next guy. What turns me off when it comes to hops is the over-the-top hop injection you get with Imperial IPAs and double (or triple) IPAs. Enough is enough. Where I live, I receive the pleasure of having top-notch breweries (Victory, Dogfish Head, Weyerbacher...) surrounding me, making excellent hoppy beers. I'm going to compare the Avery DuganA IPA to similar offerings from Dogfish Head, whose ultra-hoppy concoctions such as the 120 Minute IPA and Burton Baton have set the standard (on my tongue) for beers that feature a little too much hop juice, as far as I've experienced.

Knowing full well that Avery makes intense(ly) tasty, well-balanced beers, I expected this to be good. It was most surely. The curiously syrupy feel of ultra-hopped IPAs was feint and, therefore, appealing. A slight grapefruit note was also enjoyable. Very tasty and I'd go for seconds. Well-balanced and ideal for a double IPA. Recommended.

Live review: Bought this bomber for $6.99 at "Save-On" in Mentor, OH.

Poured at fridge temps into my SA glass, the beer is apricot in color with a stiff ecru head that leaves some nice splotches of lacing on the side of the glass. Head drops to a rim after a few minutes, but that sticks around to the end.

The nose is sort of middling ... half way between a regular IPA and a big IIPA. Lots of pine and citrus notes up front, with caramel and toffee way in the background.

The taste is similar to the nose in that the hops are first and foremost. Pine/spruce along with candied grapefruit and orange rinds dominate. I do detect the unmistakeable flavor of the chinook hops used here. Maltiness is mostly caramel, with a little toffee and slight dark bread notes. Alcohol is noticeable just in the warmth in the stomach ... no fusel notes detected. Mouthfeel is medium to full with a bit of reduced carbonation making that possible. I don't know about drinkability for a beer this big. I'll do the bomber myself, but won't be looking for anything after that .. very filling with plenty of hop burps. Finish is hoppy and slightly dry.

Conclusion ... a good solid IIPA; maybe not as big as some, but mighty tasty. Perhaps a "gateway DIPA" for those just venturing into the waters of hopilicious beers. Worth seeking out for any hop head.

Na Zdravje!

It looks a menacing shade of light orange with a strong white head.

Very pine-y and resinous aroma. Smell is sharp and very heavy on pine with a small amount of floral notes. A little dank cheese aroma going on in there too.

Definitely a taste bud bruiser with the bitterness. There is a good malt background that makes the bitterness not too overpowering. As the beer has warmed up as I drink it I get more of that cheesy kind of flavor--I'm not that big of a fan of this effect that heavy hopping with some hops must bring, but it also has a little bit of spicy flavor to go along with the pine that is very nice. Some of the cheesy-offness could be because I have been sipping this beer over the period of an hour or so, so it has definitely warmed up a bit. At the perfect serving temp you might not get that.

Well carbonated and medium-full in the mouth. It's taking me a while to get through the bottle, but it IS a 93 IBU IPA. I don't think I could have two, but that's not really what this beer is made for. Excellent to sit and sip and enjoy.

My tulip glass fills with a big, tight, off-white 3" head that leaves tons of lace in patches and rings. Below is a clear bright dark copper beer that is eventually revealed from above, though the head remains as a pillow.

Strong ripe pineapple delights the nose, with a background of caramel. This is a good example of simplicity standing out.

The bitterness is off balance and caries well into the finish. High acidity is also a primary characteristic. Where the aroma is a fine example of simplicity, the flavors are less fall short of that accolade. Still this is a fine beer.

With a full body ,strong alcohol, and astringent quality, one hopes for only to be denied some relief from the carbonation which is soft at best.

DuganA is a fine one-off beer, but seems to be going for bitterness and palate throttling from the hops, rather than the flavors. In fairness, the aroma is quite good. Ultimately this beer will be great for people who prefer to beat the drum with a sledge hammer, it makes a good loud noise.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. 2+ finger light khaki head over a slightly hazy orangey-amber body. Good rings of lace left behind.

S: Yummy. Brown sugar and grapefruit are the dominant scents, and they're pretty strong.

T: Follows the nose, with caramel malt, a hint of brown sugar, and loads of grapefruit. Lingering bitterness has a leafy, herbal quality to it as well. Finishes fairly dry. Almost gave it a 5.

M: Nice creaminess. Medium heft. All around clean and light -- refreshing for a DIPA.

D: Excellent.

Notes: Best new DIPA I've had in a long time. Not thrilled about the price tag (I paid over $9 for the bomber), but at least it turned out to be a top-notch beer.

Pours a clear deep gold with an ample creamy head that doesn't last very long, resolving into a fine ring of foam leaving some lacing.

Aromas of oat bread, vanilla, hops, brown sugar.

Taste is butterscotch malt, salty, and concentrated hops with a variety of flavors, but in the citrus peel/piney direction. Finishes dry and bitter, with a dank, wet horseblanket wooly flavor.

Medium body and ample carbonation gives this a creamy mouthfeel. Goes down smooth. The hops give the tongue a numbing ride.

This is a delightful double IPA. The hop flavors are very concentrated and fresh. I am happy that a lot of sugar has not been added to counter the concentrated hop flavors. Can't really taste the alcohol at 8.5%, but I can feel it as I get more than halfway through the bottle.

Pours out a really clear yellow amber with very little suds. Some lacing.
Notice the smell as soon as you open it. Hoppy as all get out. Very floral and refreshing. Very little alcohol aroma but you can feel the phenol quality here.
Taste is a bittersweet mix with the alcohol being in the front seat driving this bad boy. Whew! Good flavor but the overwhelming alcohol is a bit too much. Still a great flavor.
Mouthfeel is a bit dirty and sticky.
Drinkability is only OK cause this one is almost too hot to handle!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: golden amber, cloudy after pouring into pint glass. Cleared up nicely after warmed fro 10-15 min. Thick off white head that stays for the entire glass providing a full lacing down the entire glass.

S: Citrusy citrus aroma. tart grapefruit with a hint of sweet lemon, cant wait to dive in

T: upfront, grapefruit again, not overpowering as the aroma would indicate, balanced nicely with hint of light toasted maltiness through the middle, pinch of caramel, with a bit of piney resinous bitterness in the finish that begs for a second drink.

M: nice, not too thin, medium mouthfeel.

D: Could be a bit overwhelming for the non hop head, but a very drinkable enjoyable imperial ipa.

Wish I had not bought just one. This one left me wanting another.

Thanks goes out to gford217 for this brew.

22oz. Bomber
Gold Foil

Pours a very nice cloudy golden copper color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger plus creamy off-white head, with some small islands and sticky lacing left behind. The nose is hoppy, with some malt notes, very nice citrus/pine notes. The taste is slightly sweet on the lips, very nice hop note, with a nice little blend of malts, citrus/pine notes. Medium body. Very Drinkable, a very tasty DIPA. It's been awhile since I've had a Avery brew, and this one hit the spot.

From a bomber, poured into a snifter. Amber color with a thick, off-white head. Citrus and floral aroma. Very strong grapefruit taste, a little bit of pine resin. The taste really lingered. A nice, in your face, IPA. Very well done, didn't notice the alcohol.

Served from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Reddish brown amber color, thick creamy head that produces some nice lacing. Small amount of bubbles rising from the bottom.

S: Very big citrus and grapefruit aroma

T: Lots of hoppy grapefruit taste with some pepper and pine notes. As the beer warms a bit, a lot more of the caramel malt characteristics come out.

M: Medium to full bodied.

D: Very big beer, lots of hoppiness, lots of flavor, long aftertaste, and lots of alcohol as well that's not as noticeable in the taste, but could catch up with you.

Poured In: Wine Glass

Appearance: The pour was a clear copper and caramel color with a finger of creamy head sitting on top. It's not very effervescent, which to me seems like a good sign. I enjoy my IIPAs when they are easy on the palate. The beer is nice and clear, at least for now. A few dashes of lace appear at the top of the wine glass.

Smell: The nose is of dank herbal hops including grass and pine. Very resinous, with a little bit of caramel sweetness and orange and grapefruit.

Taste: The palate follows right up with the nose and the label on the beer, more dank green hops. I've seen a few people on here mention it candy-like flavor on this, and I'd have to agree. This does have a candied American barleywine like flavor to it, but I really enjoy it. On top of the sweet caramel malt sits pine, grapefruit, orange, mango and grass.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, chewy, carbonation is spot on.

Drinkability: This is a well put together beer by Avery. I split this bottle, which was probably a good choice for a weeknight. I'm not sure I could do a full bottle if it wasn't the weekend.

Been a while since I've consumed something new, doing this for my Sunday Easter Celebration Beer.

Appearance shows apparent malt presence, a bit darker than usual. Golden, amber, ruby, and burnt orange meld together producing an opalescent copper display. Strong frothy white head, almost Belgian like in quality and amount. Tons of carbonation coming from the etching at the bottom of the glass. Overall, very appealing appearance wise.

Some good nuances in here including, resinous pine, pungent cannabis, lemon zest, and orange peels. Complexity is up there, lots of intricate hop notes to discover. Smell is quite impressive overall, and quite unique. It smells just like a gigantic sugar coated hop cone infused pine cone!

The taste for me, blows the nose out of the water. While still remaining close to what the nose has to offer. Big, sugary, malty, and amply hoppy. Starts out sugary with a thick syrupy mouthfeel. Immediately resinous hop leaves coat the tongue, leaving a base for more hop complexity to come. Citrus notes barrage the palate, leaving a vast amount of flavor tones to be experienced. Zesty, spicy, sweet, sugary, bitter, and tangy all at one? Yes! It really does have that much depth. Followed by more, what more you ask? Delicate florals, allowing the flavor to smooth out producing a clean herbal bitterness, with some tantalizing cannabis intricacies. Just very, very nice. Finishes with lingering bitterness, and residual sweetness.

Well, what can I say? The sheer amount of hop complexity taste wise in DuganA is absolutely astounding. It provides just so much in that department. How you can experience all of your senses in one sip, is mind blowing. The mouthfeel, the consumption, the lasting impression, are that well perceived. The only DIPA, I've had in quite some time that comes close to matching the complexity of Pliney The Elder.

Very well done Avery, definitely one of my favorite beers you have to offer, and that is saying something. You gotta check this one out guys, WE HAVE A HOT ONE RIGHT HERE AMERICA! (Randy Jackson Voice)

First of all, I have learned in the past month how important it is to get your IPA fresh!!! Some beers are affected more than others, but my original taste of this from the bottle was quite different than this one!

Presentation: Poured into a tulip glass from a growler purchased at Green's in Columbia, SC

A: Clear amber color with a fluffly light tan head that dies down quickly and moderate lacing.

S: Nice floral, citrus hop scent. Mild pine in the background. (Complete opposite of the bottle I reviewed a short while back).

T&M: Fairly balanced hop bitter and mildly malty sweet taste up front. The pine hops are more prevelant in the taste, but well-balanced with the malts. Medium to heavy bodied with fine, smooth carbonation that fades to an oily bitter residue. Slightly dry finish, but it doesn't turn your tongue into sandpaper.

Definitely a favorite of mine now.... IF it is fresh!!!

650 mL bottle at refrigerator temperature poured into a snifter.

A - Pours a ruddy brown, cloudy body with a thin, slightly uneven head formation.

S - Floral honey, pineapple, pine, and an almost cinnamony spice - really nice balance of sweet and pungent. Very complex and hard to pin down. Much, much different from the "standard" IPA nose. There are some medicinal, band-aid esters that show their face as the brew warms, though.

T - Really good progression from a sweet attack to a pleasingly bitter finish. Flavor profile reminds me of apricots, pine needles, and meyer lemons. A weird combo, I know, but it works.

M - A little too sweet for my tastes, but the brisk carbonation helps to lift some of that away. The well-tempered bitterness of the hops is a nice complement to the residual sweetness.

D - Definitely an out-of-the-box IPA. I dig it. A lot darker than most IPAs - I think it makes this beer way more accessible for food pairings. I'd love this beer with BBQ, charcuterie, or roast duck. For some reason, I'm thinking that meat would be the best match for this brew. At any rate, get your hands on this brew - a solid showing from the folks at Avery.

On-tap at Stone

A: The pour is a clear light amber color with a fluffy white head and some sticky lacing.

S: The nose is full of tropical, fruity hops which give it that nice pineapple and tangerine aroma. There's some definite sweet caramel malt in there as well.

T: The flavor is a bit on the sweet side with the same fruity qualities that are present in the nose. Luckily, there is a good amount of piney bitterness to balance out the sweetness.

M: The body is a bit thick and sticky and the carbonation is moderate, which helps the beer from becoming syrupy.

D: I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It was balanced (which isn't always my thing with IPAs) and quite easy to drink for 8.5%.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2010 22oz bottled September 23, 2010 (we share a birthday, nice). Really stoked to try a fresh batch of this.

Pours hazy golden amber with a nice white head that leaves many drippy rings of lacing and holds a fair cap.

Aroma starts heavy on citrus and tropical fruits, oranges, tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, with the pine, floral, and marijuana qualities really coming out as it warms up, also some light bready malt to balance things out. Very good strength.

Excellent flavor of citrus, pine and resinous hops, grapefruit, orange, pineapple, a bit of sweet malt for balance but it doesn't stand up to the strong bitterness this brew delivers. Dry with a long lasting bitter finish. Alcohol picks up as it warms, particularly in the second half of the bottle that was left on the counter to warm.

Mouthfeel is also very good, medium bodied without being heavy, medium carbonation, just right. Very easy drinking for a relatively big beer.

I have to say, I might like this even more than Maharaja, excellent stuff. While the 5-6 month old bottle I had earlier this year was very good, this fresh one is outstanding. Will pick up a bottle each and every time a fresh batch comes out!


Original Review March 24, 2010:
22oz bottle, unknown date. Approx 5 months old. Pours amber with a large foamy off-white head which holds a nice fluffy cap and leaves a ring of lacing. Aroma is features a lot of citrus fruit, pineapple, tangerine, some grapefruit, pine, bread, toast, funk, caramel. Flavor is goes back and forth between bitter and sweet, bitter resinous hops playing against sweet caramel malts and bread, a little bit of citrus, orange, pineapple, grapefruit make it in as well. Finish is lingering, bitter and sticky sweet. Mouthfeel is medium to full, sticky, medium carbonation. Very good overall, even with a few months on it.

Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip glass... This ale pours a cloudy, coppery orange with a big, fluffy eggshell white head. Sheets of lace are left on the glass as this lupulin beauty is consumed. Aroma is dominated by piney hops - but there are also hints of peach and pineapple; a touch of caramel sweetness is in the nose, as well. Taste... Piney, resinous hops up front - I also get some pepper and earthiness in the hop profile. A light note of breadiness along with some caramel malt make an effort to provide some balance to this hop-lover's delight! Mouthfeel is creamy and medium to full-bodied - it's also a touch oily. It's a delicious IPA. Personally, I usually prefer citrus hoppiness to the piney hoppiness, but not the case for this brew - it's super enjoyable and may be my favorite of Avery's great offerings (it definitely is satisfying my hop craving)!

Poured into snifter from bomber.

A: Light amber color. Head quickly recedes. Some lacing.

S: Pineapple and sweet dough, medium-intensity smell.

T: Awesome, the pineapple generalizes to an understated citrus, hop kick is then everpresent, nice, sharp earthiness. I had to start eating my dinner salad early with this one, so I could enjoy each sip afresh.

M: Chunky without imposing, excellent dry finish.

D: Aftertaste lets you know it wants to stick around. 10 oz. goes too fast.. that's why man invented bombers.

Appears a hazed glowing orange copper hue with a bright off white head forming thick bands of lacing between each sip. Aroma has orange and citrus peels, with pungent herbal weed like notes, juice tropical edges as well sugar coated hops ladies and gentleman. Flavor is a big raw rush of pine, citrus peels, and herbal floral hop bursts. A big sugary pale malt base adds a nice sweetness to the bitter rawness a bit of alcohol presence going on, this is a big IPA probably more of an impy than a single. This is hop juice with a bit of booze peaking threw to balance out the hops. Mouthfeel is big and viscous with hop oils, quite the IPA. I'm glad I revisited this brew I had it on tap last time I was up at Vintage Estate in Boardman this time around it's bottled and I'm glad I tried this stuff. The quickest emptying bottle of 8.5% abv IPA I've had in a long time the balance between malts hops and booziness is incredible this is a classic representation of what a big IPA should be.

From the makers of one of the greatest double IPAs of all time, in my opinion (Ale to the Chief), and whose other double IPA, Maharaja, is nearly as mouth-wateringly awesome...it's hard not to have high hopes for DuganA (don't know what's up with the big A, but I'll play along...)

The haze screams "hop-haze" of course...the head is a modest but creamy thing that sticks around the whole time, and the color is a sunny rusty orange. Splashes of lace dot the glass. Mmm mmm.

Resiny and piney nose, in the absolute. Wow. Won't rip your nostril-hairs off, but might come close. Lemon rind and pineapple are strongly represented too.

Hops slather the tongue mercilessly...the resin and pine in the nose come to technicolor life on the tongue. Lemon peel, pineapple, mutant toffee, and spearmint too, all big, all magnificent. Grassy astringency in the finish, surprise surprise. Yet, somehow this is controlled...it's like Hopsickle wearing its Sunday best and acting as nice as it possibly can.

Creamy mouth, round, a little stick, also magnificent and just perfect for the flavors going on.

DuganA is nirvanA. You can't get a much hoppier beer that's as drinkable, although it still is probably more for hops veterans/geeks than newcomers. Avery totally does huge IPAs right, and that's probably an understatement.

Chilled 220z. bomber poured into a snifter
Two fingered egg shell foam atop a hazy burnt orange color. The head recedes to a
thin white cap with a spotty lace left behind.
Sweet citrus hop nose that is subtle and not a nose tingler; the alcohol is dominated by thehops though the 8.5%abv is definately there. The 93 IBUs are nice, leaving my mouth wateringafter the first few sips but my taste buds remained intact.Rich and creamy; full bodied goodness; the consistency reminiscent of a soda with cream added; smooth and thickish with the carbonation providing contrast. Even hop flavor throughout leaving the pallet wanting more not tapping out in submission.The finish is dry and more sweet than bitter, all in all pleasant. The refill from the bottom half pours slightly darker, a bit auburn with the same beautiful head and nearly no transluscence.
Great Drink

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - This is a thick, rich, beautiful brownish-orangish in color with an easy, staying head that left pits and lacing galore. I can see little floaties in the beer as well. It may seem strange to call something a "perfect brown-orange" but the color of this beer is striking.

Smell - This is more of a classic PacNW-style nose full of big hop aromas that drown out whatever malt base may be in there. The pine especially is stiff but not so much that it runs roughshod over the wonderful, deep orange notes. The resin and citrus smells are in perfect harmony here.

Taste - Ah, the malt does come out significantly at the taste and actually manages to hold its own. The pine steps back a bit as pine is prone to do and the citrus loses any sense of sweetness and brings on a wonderful balance to the malt. The malt itself is not overly sweet like some efforts at the style but does have some nice caramel character to it.

Mouthfeel - This is almost full-bodied in the mouth with some nice, sharp bitterness that's not overdone and some decent carbonation for the style. It is very slick and mouth-watering.

Drinkability - This is one of the better DIPAs that I've had and that is saying a lot. Avery can be known for overdoing a style but here they did this just right.

A- Large silky white head with good retention and nice lacing.

S- Sweet malty backbone, caramel, honey and a large piney citrus hop presence.

T- Bitter citrus and piney hops, sweet caramel, and a hint of almonds, just enough sweetness to take the edge off the hops.

M- Medium bodied dry mouth feel from beginning to finish.

Overall I would say this is a pretty good IPA Avery does another good job.

Great lable on bottle. By the end of the offering you'll be staring at it hopping for a nip slip. Pours with a slightly hayzy, orange-copper apperance. Thin head holds strong with nice lacing throught drink.
Strong malt backbone. Clean citrus hop aroma. Some pale grains peek through.
Moderate sweet malt perk up the taste buds followed by a very fresh, clean orange citrus hop profile. More like sweet OJ than orange peel. Finishes somewhat dry with biscut flavors.
Medium body rolls smooth in the mouth. Some hop resins linger in mouth.
Great offering here. Very fresh and clean drink. One to revisit.
