From a can into a pint glass at the Shack on Telge. It was $2.00 can night so this beer will have to be pretty bad to disappoint me. Pours a cloudy orange with a nice fluffy off-white head. Nice aroma of tropicals with some faint pine. Not as dank-smelling as I would have expected from the name. Tastes nice and juicy with a great balance of malt to hops. Mouthfeel is perfect. I think the hops notes are more fruity than dank/resiny but it's a great-tasting IPA so I won't nit-pick there. The thing is, there are so many similar brews out there that I fear this may be one of those "I had a great time, I'll call you" moments when you know down deep that "See you 'round" is more likely "good bye".

12 oz can into a lager glass.

The hazy orange-amber body is topped by a large, fluffy white head that has good retention and leaves plenty of sticky lacing.

Aroma: strong; dank and fruity hops.

Flavor: the complex profile partially fits the name: this is somewhat dank. But there's also a fresh fruity element too. The moderate bitterness reflects more malts than otherwise expected.

O: about as refreshing as a "dank" IPA gets.

Trying the Dankosaurus whilst on layover in Houston at Mojos Sports Bar and Grill. The beer poured a hazy yellow with white head that is not leaving much of a lace. The scent is awesome...carries tropical fruit and pine...almost a ocean sea salt as well. The taste is not far from juicy fruit. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's definitely worth a shot.

Pours a hazed up gold/bronze with 3 fingers of ivory colored head. Fantastic lacing & good head retention

S: Grapefruit peel & tangerine

T: Grapefruit, flinty dryness, a little peach as well up front, plus tangerine. Pomelo, grapefruit & dryness as this warms, plus more tangerine. Finishes with a flourish of citrus & a little orchard fruit, with an emphasis on grapefruit, fairly crisp

MF: Medium body, firm carbonation, great balance

Drinks pretty darn easy, good take on the style
