Big DIPA, lot of great qualities, and I love that it comes in a can, although multiple people thought they were cans of coconut water. Malts and citrus on the nose and palate, nothing off the beaten path but very well balanced and easy to drink. Hop presence not as pronounced as expected or as typifies the style. Not overly sweet. Some booze at the end, warms the stomach. Smooth, great feel, not sticky. Overall, fairly good beer, probably won't be one of my go-to since it's up against some phenomenal competition, but I am excited to try more from The Dudes.

Pours a clear orange/yellow honey color. Lots of creamy off white head. Big aroma with lots of pine, citrus, and grapefruit. Get some astringent notes and some caramel/biscuit malty aroma as well. Taste is a big hoppy DIPA. Taste follows the nose with pine, grapefruit and caramel malt. Significant bitterness. Finishs dry and not sticky which makes it easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel which is surprising for 10%+ beer.

Overall good DIPA that's has a big piney, citrus hop flavor and very bitter. easy to drink and not syrupy or too sweet. I'll be picking this up fairly often at $11 for 4, 16 oz cans.

Tastes like a sick cross between Colt 45 and that one Safeway-brand IPA (Green Something). Smells sweet and gross. Tastes strongly of alcohol.

There's no reason this should be commercially available.

I'm as qualified to call myself a surgeon as this company is a brewery.

3.95/5  rDev +5.3%

A: Pours from a 16 ounce can a chill hazed orange with one-finger thick slightly off-white head which leaves rings and spotty lace.

N: Citrus, floral, herbal, and pine notes.

T: Citrus and pine, resiny and sticky, herbal, plenty of malt backbone for balance.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Resiny, sticky, dry and bitter finish.

O: This elephant backs a wallop with big ABV. Prepare to be waffle stomped.

Dark amber colored beer with a tall off-white colored head. I can describe the color best as a burnt orange.

Smell is sweet and woody with a little eucalyptus and orange scents. Unfortunately that is about all not a very aromatic ale.

Starts out sweet and bitter with a woody orange aftertaste. Bittersweet describes the flavor. And that is all she wrote just bittersweet.

Mouthfeel is thick.

Overall, I don't care for this one much.
