look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.

Poured in to a tulip. 1 finger, white head. Slighty hazy, copper colored body.

Aroma was floral with some citrus and ofcourse some danky hop aroma. A bit caramely and malty with some biscuity/bready notes.

Taste was floral and citrusy upfront. Maltyness followed the fairly intense hop flavors with some malty, caramely notes. A bit bready. Slightly sweet, which helped the hop flavors. Finish was resiny and piney. Definitely some danky hop qualities. Mellow bitterness for the amount of hop flavors and finish.

Mouthfeel was medium body, medium car and a slightly sticky, resiny finish.

Good beer overall. Pleasant amount of hop flavors and sweetness. Well rounded and balanced.

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

The pour was a hazy reddish orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly lasting, reducing to a thin cap with good sheets of streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a moldy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit and orange peel) and a light fruity ester.

The taste was mildly malty and a tad sweet with a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness early on, and then become moderately hoppy with shot of grapefruit and a bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor hung on for a good long time proceeding the swallow with a bitter citrus peel taste left lying on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was just past light in body and extremely dry in texture with a carbonation that was just past medium.

Overall this was a very tasty IPA, with a strong bitter hoppy presence that was offset nicely by a mild fruity sweetness...

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."

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.

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.

Poured into a Stone Imperial glass. A dark orange or ruby red color. Very clear and filtered look with large carbonation bubbles that lead to a small one finger head. The head is off white and has very sticky lace.

Smell is wonderful!! Bright citrus and piney aromas. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple and mango. Pine forest on a rainy day. There is also some earthy notes and sweet malts. Melds together quite nice.

Taste is quite bright and bitter. Pine needles, pink and yellow grapefruits, orange, pineapple some mild mango and a ton of bitter, lip smacking goodness. The earth and yeasty notes don't come out in the taste as much as in the nose. Good thing. This one reminds me of Abrasive and Heady. Maybe the little brother or distant cousin.

Mouth is full and almost chewy for an IPA. Body is huge and the carbonation medium but on the spritzy side. Finish is everlong and very wet with a fantastic bitterness that increases with every swallow.

Overall I must say how much I loved this brew. I think this is a worthy contender for Heady and Abrasive but only that, a contender. Not bad to be mentioned with those high caliber IPA's. I suggest you try this one even if it costs you a ton to trade for. It is worth the chance. I am lucky and have great trading partners like Jasonrm72 that send me stuff like this as a surprise. Thanks again Jason.

A- Deep pumpkin orange with light, light auburn hue when held to the light. Soft, small white head that disappears rather quickly. Spider web builds on the top of the beer, light lacing on the glass. The head was uninspiring, but the color is magnificent.

S- The name describes the aroma, DANK. Light floral notes with some bright citrus. Big old pine notes dominate the hop aroma. There is just the slightest touch of some sweet malt in there. Pretty good, reminds me of the aroma from Odell IPA.

T- The taste is good. Piney hops jump off first followed by some light grapefruit. Maybe a little caramel in the back end. Smal lingering hop flavor. The flavor comes up a little short of the aroma, but not bad. No booze detectable. Not much bitterness.

M- Light, crisp, and higher in carbonation. Lighter in body. Carbonation opens up the hop aroma but almost makes this beer a little to "bubbly".

O- This is a good IPA. To be honest, this is better than i expected, not sure why. The bitterness is a little low for an IPA and it might be a little over carbonated, but the "dank" character is fitting and makes for a delicious hop-centric brew.

Dad & Dude's "Hopped Up IPA" - one of two Dad & Dude crafted IPAs on tap.

A - The beer was served in a standard pint glass and arrived a hazy orange amber color with a nice 1.5 finger white bubbly head. Good retention and gobs of lacing throughout the glass.

S - A nice blend of hop character in the nose. Floral earthy tones together with a mild citrus grapefruit/lemon blend. A mild biscuit aroma from the malty sweetness. A nice fruit presence.

T - Just like the nose as you're hit with a nice hop presence immediately. The aromatic character of the hops transitioned well to the fruit character: hints of mango, grapefruit, lemon zest though also some resinous pine and earthen tones. A medium bitterness blends nicely with a the malty sweetness and biscuit/bread flavors of the malt. Finishes clean and crisp with a lingering bitterness and fruity sweetness on the tongue. Hop-forward for sure, very good.

M - Medium bodied with good carbonation. Hides the alcohol well.

O - This is one of my favorite brews I've had at the Breweria. I haven't had any of their other IPAs but I really liked the hop-forward character and sweetness. I'd easily drink several of these and would recommend it.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

My second Dad & Dude's beer. Served in a pint glass.

Very hazy with heavy sediment swirling in the glass. The server said it was due to over carbonation. Hmmmm...

Very little hop aroma. Needs more for an IPA.

Taste was very bitter and grainy. Felt bad but I sent it back.

Tasted like a bad home brew. A little disappointed but I will give them the benefit of the doubt and keep trying their beers. The other beer I had from them was pretty good. Hopefully this was just a bad batch.
