a nice can of beer. pours a deep coppery orange brown color with an average white head on it. it smells more of an english ipa, malty and sweeter than a lot of american incarnations, bu the hops are definitely there. piney mostly, but some lighter citrus as well. the flavor matches pretty well with the nose, although the malts are less pronounced, and the sweetness isnt really there. the finish is bitter and clean, refreshing but somehow filling at the same time. a 16oz. can of this is just about right, and a 4 pack is the perfect serving size. feel is about average for an american ipa, medium bodied and well carbonated but not over the top. a little more carbonation might actually make me like this better. overall another solid local ipa, and you cant beat the price.

Comes in a half-litre aluminum can. 6.5% ABV.

Pours a standard copper body with a bone white foamy cap that sticks around for ~6 minutes, leaving messy lacing as it recedes. Aroma suggests a run-of-the-mill hop profile lead by pine with subsidiary notes of floral hops and mild resins. Not a real fruity or juicy aroma, with no grapefruit bite or dank hop oils (counter-eponymously, I suppose).

The taste confirms suspicions instigated by the aroma, delivering the hum-ho hop profile promised aromatically and nothing more. It's imbalanced to boot, though there's adequate pale malt sweetness; the unevenness comes from the odd makeup of the hop profile, which never really resolves a fundamental clash of simple pine and muted hop oils. This build lacks a clear direction and focus, and ends up being rather forgettable. Texture is average, with the usual overcarbonation, smoothness, wetness, et al. It's unrefreshing, though the ABV isn't noticeable.

A drinkable fits-the-bill IPA that won't impress the discerning drinker, but might open the eyes of someone new to craft beer. I can't see this doing well in the IPA-oversaturated Colorado market, and I wouldn't bother with it again given the relative lack of quality, but it's enjoyable enough and I hope Dad & Dude's develops as they mature. Less dry-hopping and more hopping for flavour might be a good start to making this a more memorable beer in the style.

09.14.17 giving this a second shot on-draught @ a Sports Bar for $7.50 per 27oz (it was the only decent option on the menu)

Poured from the can into a Chimay goblet.

The beer pours a darker amber than your average IPA. It is just a bit cloudy and doesn't have quite enough head. The hop profile is intense with a bitterness that is a bit heavy. I'm getting some pine and citrus peel, but the finish is just bitter. There is some malt in the background, but it is overshadowed by the hop bitterness. This isn't overly impressive, but it's a pretty good beer.

Lots of carbonation and a pleasant prickle on the tongue. The head dissipates after a while, so making a few pours rather than one pintful seems to work better. Yellow amber in the glass.

Quite a full, rich mouthful of hops. Rather mellow and bright. I wouldn't call it dank at all. Expansive flowery and fruity hop flavors with aromas to match. Tangy but not acidic. Plenty of bitterness as you sip, but it doesn't dominate the fruity flavors. Even a nice touch of biscuity malt comes through. All in all, a highly drinkable and flavorful IPA.

From the 16 oz can bought at Mayfair Liquor in Denver. Label says 6.5%. It also says "brewed and canned by Prost Brewing Co." but "distributed by Dude's Brews."

Poured on tap into a stemless like wine glass at Prost brewing company, from notes of Jan 2013. Originally entered under Prost brewing.

A real brown ruby gorgeous amber body color. Faint tan colored head with a creamy top presented with about a finger of head. Lacing coats in rings all over. This looks like a real jewel.

Nose is full of dank earthy tones. Bready malt escapes between the hop front quite a bit nicely.

Palate is rich in caramel and hop juice earth. Super chewy malts and green hops. Finishes with light caramel sweetness and balanced hop action. Earthy pine just whsipers on the breath when finishing.

Overall reminds me of a good balanced Deviant Dale's Ale. Delicious stuff.

Can (pounder) from liquor store near hotel. Medium golden with small creamy head. Initial musty, funky bitter aroma, fades into taste where some sweet malt comes through. Interesting combo of funky hop aroma and sweet malt flavor.

Deep amber colored body with a huge frothy, creamy head; very sticky lacing. Bold pine and floral aromas; spicy. Evenly mixed flavors of mild caramel and honey with a soothing, even-keeled hop bitterness to balance things out. Medium-heavy body; smooth and creamy; semi-dry finish.

A very nice discovery of a very tasty, well-balanced and subtly complex IPA. The flavors, aromas, and look are big and bold yet drinking this wonderful ale is quite approachable. You get the hugeness of things without getting sledgehammered. Well worth checking out...

16 oz can. Pours a slightly hazy light copper amber with a smallish off-white head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel / crystal malts with fruity, piney hops.

The flavor is sweet caramel / crystal malts with sugary fruits and a big bitter resiny, almost charred, hop finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's not well blended - very sweet, extract-like with a big bitter finish.

Deep copper color with a half inch of off frothy white. Heavy lacing. Aroma is of pungent piney hops and freshly mown grass. I taste deep, dank piney hops and yet there's light malt to keep things in check. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

16oz can served in a standard pint glass.

L - lightly hazed copper color with a white head that thinned but still left a sheet of sticky lacing.

S - around the rim of the can it reads, "citrusy - piney - floral - resiny - dank". Smells mostly like pine resin to me.

T - pine resin with a hint of a medicinal taste before a mix of bitterness and sticky sweetness finish things off.

F - medium bodied with mild carbonation.

O - fair example of the style.

No obvious date code on this one.

A – Head is nearly non-existent, lacing left is thin and light.

S – Piney, metallic, and earthy. Light citrus notes, lemon, lime, and not much else. Pretty meh.

T – Bitter hop characteristics, some floral hops as well, a little citrus, and some pine, nothing too complex.

M – Clean and almost crisp, has a bit of a lingering sticky sweetness to it.

O – Not bad, not great, good IPA, but nothing remarkable here.
