The beer pours clear and golden with a good head. The beer has no smell. The taste is light and hoppy but it is also a rich beer. The feel is smooth and creamy and overall it was pretty good.

Thanks to my brother for sharing this garbage with me…the kind sibling that he is
From the bomber split 2 ways – 09/06/15

Dark Amber with some peachish-orange hues and a good touch of haziness across the body. A tall stack of soapy off-white froth billows upwards. Patchy and randomly scattered lace noted. Malt forward. Dusty and stale like with a very muted pine-citrus hop presence. Sweet bread, caramel candy, dried orange peel. Malt soup, muddled with bread, dried fruit, and caramel malts. Hops are faded and stale. You get some dusty pine and earthiness with dried orange-citrus but this is too malty and sweet for my liking. Goes heavy on the palate.

This Dude does not abide. Skip! The bomber is cheap for a reason. Not worth the calories.

The Dude DIPA was a disappointment. Even though the bottle says gold medal at the San Diego something or other....I can only imagine this was the only DIPA entered in the contest. The beer poured copper color with white head no lace. The scent was non-descript maybe a touch of lactose. The taste was evenly balanced, slightly bitter, wish there was more especially with the higher abv. The mouthfeel was medium in body with decent carbonation. Overall its not worthy of a CA IPA.....I recommend passing on this one to many other good beers out there.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is apricot and plum with some spices.
The taste is fruit sweet with a pine bitterness to balance it.
The texture is thicker.
The alcohol hides well. Really drinkable.

It looks good, but the taste doesnt match.

The only way I can describe this beer is that it's a 40 oz (Old English/Steel Reserve etc) that smells, looks and is packaged as a CA IPA.

Too malty.
