Avery is a brewery most beer enthusiasts should be familiar with. I can't remember ever having a bad ale from them, and flavor kicks always sit in the front seat.
The DuganA IPA is no different. It pours a deep gold color with a nice creamy head, almost two fingers. Excellent lacing.
A quick whiff reveals that this is going to be hoppy. Very hoppy. Floral and citrus scents are also abound. Give it a sip and the hops kick right in. This is bitter stuff, and not for those who aren't into the super hoppy stuff. A few more sips also reveal a good deal more depth. Oranges and possibly toffee lingers once you get used to the bitterness.
At 8.5% ABV this is a pretty strong ale, but I didn't find it boozy at all. That's a good thing.
Highly recommended IPA.
