It’s no secret, at DEBC, we’re fond of hops. Citrusy, piney, floral, and fruity hops are at least a third of this whole adventure. Hops may be the current ruler of the craft beer scene, and we, for one, welcome our resinous, spicy, bitter overlords. We’ve taken the IPA category to its Event Horizon, and pulled back just enough to see the edge. Get the big picture, it’s hoppy! Hops - Summit, Columbus, Apollo, Liberty, and more! Malts - Pale ale, Vienna, Honey (NB previous versions contained rye) Yeast - English Ale Other - Raw cane sugar

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the taster glass was cloudy and orange. White foam on top. Nose of tropical fruit including pineapple and citrus. Some pine maybe. Medium plus body and resinous mouth feel. Flavor is big on hops and all the flavors are there that was in the aroma. Bitter floral and citrus finish. Good stuff.

Sample at SBWF 2015. Hoppy and malty smell. Similar taste. The malt base had that nice sweet sugare cake taste that I like. Nice and hoppy.

gyllenbock (6334) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Hazy orange with a white head. Fresh and hoppy with pineapple, grapefruit and light cookies. The mouthfeel was fairly thick and the finish bitter. Tasty.

Sample@SBWF2015. Grape och ananas i en bra blandning. I smaken är den t juice-ig av tropiska frukter. Bra munfyllnad och med stor men inte dominerande maltkropp.

Nice, rich copper coloured body with a thinnish cream head, about a centimetre tall. Aroma of deep piney and tropical fruit hops with a big malt backbone and noticeable alcohol. Full-bodied; Very deep and assertive malt with some metal showing through and a very acidic quality then turning a bit citrusey with some light sweetness, but not much complexity at all with this one. Aftertaste is relatively simple with the pine, malt and alcohol the only thing really noticeable, and none of them shine through in any great way. Overall, a decent Imperial IPA at best - some citrus and pine around the edges, but relatively simple and uninspired, but nice to have in a can. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Spec’s in Dallas, Texas on 01-September-2015 for US$2,83 sampled at home in Washington on 25-September-2015. My can displays 8,5% abv, not the aforementioned 9,3%.

SPDickerman (1080) - Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2015
Pours dark murky orange with a large off-white head. Smells strongly of pine and citrus. Taste is bitter, piney, malt sweetness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Deep Ellum Dreamcrusher Double IPA finishes with a soft lingering bitterness.

Maybe I am starting to develop a taste for ipa’s?? Nice orange pour. Aroma of citrus and pine. Palate was thick and alcohol helped balance the hops. Not too bitter. Will drink again
