Again canned some more Dudes open from Total Wine in Northridge CA.

A- Ruby, Sapphire and Orange colors are what come to me when I look at this beer. Simply a great beer to look at. Medium thick head keeps you company while drinking.

S- Hop bitterness fills the nose and finishes with the faint smell of grape fruit, orange, pineapple and dank.

T- A blast of hops come forward and surprise with a finish of sugar and malt. Compliments the hops nicely while the alcohol warmness begins to creep in and solidify itself.

A solid offering from the dudes. I would definitely seek this beer out from bars for draft offerings.

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.
