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.

Glowing orange/amber body. Tight ivory white head. Lacing is full and comes in sheets. Aroma is solid. Resinous, dank....gritty. The flavor follows suit. Dank and resiny. Not a bright DIPA, but still decent in its own right. Bitterness is pretty clean. Also get some melon fruits too....like cantaloupe. Body is medium-full and carbonation is ramped down appropriately. Alcohol is hidden very nicely in the beer. For close to 11%, it's very minimal. Decent beer.

A-Deep gold color..minimal head..

S-Toffee like malt...sweet smelling...overripe peaches...kind of a body odor aroma as well.

T-Not a ton of hop flavor here. Sweet, sticky type of sweetish malt...hops lend an overripe sweet fruit flavor...thinking peaches, nectarines...

M-Medium full bodied....sticky sweet...just a light finishing bitterness.

O-I thought I liked this better in the hotel room in LA than I do now as I disect it. It's an OK sweetish DIPA.

Poured into a wine/tulip/snifter

A - Very nice semi translucent late evening California copper sunset. Two finger dense head and some sugar legs

S - Pungent, huge sugar, nice booze, huge malt, very bready, nice floral hop, a bit dank, grainy and very fresh bright citrus

T - Hoppy malty explosion up front, gives way to a bright hoppy punch, sugar and booze, drinks like a meal, nice grain, flowers and ends with a huge malty backbone

M - Full bodied, nice balance, simple yet nice complexity, medium acidity and a huge malt/hop/sugar bomb finish

Final thoughts - $12 bucks a 4 pack is a lot, but at 10.8% and 16 oz each. This is my new friend right now!
