This is definitely a double ipa, but maybe for the wrong reasons.

Aroma - very little aroma hops, mostly there is a strong alcohol smell
Appearance - good, looks clear and clean
Taste - There is a piney hop forward taste followed by a hot alcohol blast. It almost tastes like Jim Bean was added to a regular IPA. So if you're in to getting hammered fast then this is the beer for you. If you are in to complex, hoppy, malty balanced DIPAs then this is not the beer for you. Plenty other local LA brews (Wolf Among the Weeds) that fit this bill much better.

don't get me wrong, this is an enjoyable brew but one is enough otherwise you'll be on your donkey in seconds flat.

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.
