Came out just like Dugana in appearance, but a little cloudier, good orange glow, tiny bit of white head. Aroma was earthy, really the only area of potential improvement over regular Dugana.

Hoppy, gritty, bitterness was amped up seemingly to 93 ibus. Didn't hide the alcohol as well as the normal version. Mouthfeel was lacking for something double dry hopped, tasted more like a double bitter hop session than a dry hopping session.

Pours rich amber with orange and grenadine tinge. Medium head subsides within a minute, leaving rich lacing.

The primary factor for em in this beer is smell. It is a colorful bouquet of aromas, just as expected from an IPA. Amid the usual confluence of grapefruit, tree bark and resin there are new and interesting notes that I couldn't quite place at first...later, I got it - lychee. And some rose hip tea. And rose oil. Overall - very herbaceous, like standing in an herbal tea store.

It is quite warm to taste, courtesy of alcohol content. Still, notes of rose on the palate. Not overly exciting or original mouthfeel, just lots of hoppy goodness and herbal flavor.

I'll pick up this bottle once in a while. It's good as an after-dinner drink, especially as it warns up and exudes more and more of its flowery flavors.
