Again canned some more Dudes open from Total Wine in Northridge CA.

A- Ruby, Sapphire and Orange colors are what come to me when I look at this beer. Simply a great beer to look at. Medium thick head keeps you company while drinking.

S- Hop bitterness fills the nose and finishes with the faint smell of grape fruit, orange, pineapple and dank.

T- A blast of hops come forward and surprise with a finish of sugar and malt. Compliments the hops nicely while the alcohol warmness begins to creep in and solidify itself.

A solid offering from the dudes. I would definitely seek this beer out from bars for draft offerings.

Smell: notes of citrus, mango, grapefruit, a little alcohol

taste: sweet and malty to start. then grassy, notes of grapefruit, ending with a bit of warmth from alcohol.

mouthfeel: good amount of carbonation and a small amount of hop oil

overall pretty good for the price and the abv. def on the heavy side but overall a good beer that id get again.

Look: Nice orange tangerine color, clear.

Smell: Hoppy and citrusy. Lots of strong smells.

Taste: Hop bomb but you get that tangerine, grapefruit flavor in the end. Sticks around.

Feel: Nice typical IPA feel.

Overall: Great beer would buy again.

Pours a clear orange/yellow honey color. Lots of creamy off white head. Big aroma with lots of pine, citrus, and grapefruit. Get some astringent notes and some caramel/biscuit malty aroma as well. Taste is a big hoppy DIPA. Taste follows the nose with pine, grapefruit and caramel malt. Significant bitterness. Finishs dry and not sticky which makes it easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel which is surprising for 10%+ beer.

Overall good DIPA that's has a big piney, citrus hop flavor and very bitter. easy to drink and not syrupy or too sweet. I'll be picking this up fairly often at $11 for 4, 16 oz cans.
