This is a hard find. Stone IPA at 6.9% would be my winner. Any others??
I would say Troegs Hop Knife.
Julius or blind pig. celebration ale is pretty good but I wouldn't really call it dank
Julius...dank? thats about the last thing id describe it as. better have a friend ship me some to get to the bottom of this! ha.
My vote would be Ska-Modus Hoperandi
I second this.
LT Dank from Wicked Weed ar 6.5 Abv . It's far better than the 88 ba score IMO, I'm thinking its unfairly or subconsciously being compared to the big fruity IPAs. If it's fresh it's really a pleasant surprise, well worth buying a 6.
I know a local bottle shop that has cans in their cold case. I've just added it to my to-try shopping list for my next trip in there.
Had Dankosaurus recently, definitely fits your criteria.
Just check the dates, but I suspect this style might be a bit more forgiving on a bit of age.
Really an outstanding beer, IMO trade worthy in and by itself.
Budweiser and a bong hit
to enjoy Budweiser you'd have to make it a massive crack hit. then I'd have to drink the bud to try to slow my heart down
Tropical Torpedo is very dank IMO
Dankosaurus by Cedar Creek Brewing. Full of dank and just under 7% (6.8%). But then again, it's a beer that's hard to find outside TX.
Yeah, good point.
What's been your experience with freshness relative to when it was canned?
Fortunately the deliveries to my beer store are always current on WW beers. They're all usually under 30 days old. I was assuming Pa stock might lag a bit, whether this is true I don't know, just an assumption. But the dank, piney beers I've had that have had some
age seem to be pretty damn good. So it's a extrapolation over actual experience on LT Dank. These type of hops seem to age better than the fruity hops or beers that are aggressively dry hopped. They seem to fade much quicker.
Good beer, the earth won't spin, you won't howl, but it's better than most of stuff on the shelf. IMO of course. In this style I'd opt to Chinookered from Lawson's and Pure Hoppiness when it was from SD as the best in class. But my palates a bit strange sometimes.
Drinking a Double Dry Hopped Fort Point Pale Ale from Trillium right now and it's pretty dank....
Seeing this pop up fresh here in ATL I need to pick up a six on your recommendation!
Spellbound IPA. Best way to describe it is bitter as hell and aggressive.
Their pale reminds me of trillium also.
Green Flash Spanish Trampoline
Brazos Valley Brewing Mama Tried
The one that really stands out is probably a one off from Whole Foods brewery in Houston. They did a version of their Hop Explorer series (VIII) and made it with hop hash. Man it was unbelievably dank.
Nice its getting closer, it's a great beer IMO.
Tom, I was doing some chores and I stopped by my local Beer Distributor for a short walk about. I took note they had cans of Lt. Dank in one of their refrigerators:
The good news is those cans were fresh: canned 7/17/17. So basically a month old.
The bad news is that it is priced at 16 bucks!! This is a no purchase for me.
Fortunately my primary bottle shop has the packs broken up so it's possibly to just by one can and they will probably be charging $3-3.50 for a can which I'll be willing to spend if only out of curiosity.
I'm interested in this one also because both the brewers and others use the word dank to name/describe it and I'm thinking that particular flavor/character is what I typically describe as resinous.
Please report back your impressions.
FWIW when I use the word "dank" I mean a marijuana type aroma/flavor.
P.S. I use "resin" to describe a resin flavor.
Probably NBS. (Next week, not tomorrow since I still don't have the can in hand.)
For a variety of reasons to complex to explain here I've never dealt with MJ so am not at all familiar with that aroma/flavor. But my tasting experience with pine resin seems to be broader and more developed than most on here. Again for reasons I won't detail but have a lot to do with where I grew up and some of our family wintertime activities, etc.
Nowadays you don't have to have had any experience with it. Walking the dog late at night in my subdivision I can flag the houses where people partake. Go to New Orleans on bourbon street, where it isn't legal, and people are smoking it on the street, right in front of the cops (they choose to pick their battles).
I could claim that I never partaked but...
The reality is that most of my palate experience is via attending concerts where it was quite a smokey environment. Much of our flavor associations are via memories of smell. I have perceived an aroma/flavor of petroleum products in beers; not from taste but by the smell of gasoline, kerosene, diesel, ...
And attending concerts!!
I love the Vicious Mosquito IPA from Sunriver Brewing. Always hits the spot. in fact I'm gonna crack one as soon as I get home. Cheers!
This is the correct description of dank - that is all.
Was disappointed by that one. TETO
A tick over 7%, but the current Revision Brewing seasonal, Leafy Greens, would be another suggestion.
Zeelander is earthy and dank AF and under 7%.
Glad I'm not the only one! I've gotten a vaguely asphalt-like aroma from 2 or 3 different hazy DIPAs I've had over the past few months. Thankfully it's subtle and usually dissipates after the first few whiffs.
Damn, I was about to say Modern Times Orderville, but it's 7.2%
Cosmic Nod by South County is only 5% and it is amazing.
Dale's Pale Ale... at 6.5% the only thing separating it from an IPA is a name.
