El Dankerino. The Big Lebrewski.
Says best by 8/11/2015

Appearance - orange amber crystal clear with nice off white head that sticks/leaves nice lacing
Smell - Dank, resinous, garlic/onion/ganja in a good way. Then the tropical fruits come in - papaya, mango, orange.
Taste - Same as smell add piney bitterness, basically perfect.
Feel - Feels like an IIPA. Alc covered.
Overall - This is one of those every time I see it reasonably fresh I buy it. On par with all the best double/imperial ipas.

Golden orange color, poor a very light head
smell of citrus floral hops
Strong carbonation that has a nice smooth finish, a little boozy with a nice citrus taste with still the pine of a more west coast ipa.
Full mouthful
Overall I give this a 4.5, a great ipa because I like the citrus balance with the hops.
