COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Can. Pours reddish orange with a good head and nice lacing. Orange marmalade, alcohol, and herbal aromas. Flavor is sticky orange peel and caramel, big flavors with a big finish. Finishes bright with some alcohol heat.

12-oz can. Thanks, N! Pours a cloudy medium amber with a loose white head. Bright tangy hop nose, nice grapefruit and citric acid combo, also some pepperiness from the grains. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bright grapefruit tang on the mid palate, also peppery malt notes. Dry finish. Freshness must really matter with this one; it was quite good.

SG111 (1080) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours deep orange, minnal white head. Light ring of lacing. Aroma is orange, tangerine, pine, really sweet citrus and some sugary sweetness. Flavor is dank, pine, hops, citrus. Not bad. Flavor is a bit too dank (not my kinda dank though). Solid beer nonetheless.

Arayaga2 (2079) - portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Fruity, grassy, too much in the caramel malt department, and it has an Englishy yeast character I’m not fond of as well. $2 sample at brewery.

BeerRenter76 (668) - Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Nice varied aromas of floral, pineapple, citrus, and grassy malts with with a strong caramel malt presence. Mid to deep slightly hazy orange body, the cap is off whit, a bit frothy and leaves some fairly heavy lacing. Flavor is the hops but the caramel malts really tone this down, although there is a decent bitterness throughout.

DandyWolfFloyd (1007) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Aroma - floral, herb, pine, and slight citrus hops. Caramel malt. Appearance - the body is a hazy dark amber, with good nucleation. The head is 2+" and off-white. Wispy and whipped lacing. Taste - herbaceous, floral, and pine hops. The malt is of a caramel nature. Palate - medium body, slightly oily texture, the carbonation is average, the finish is slightly bitter.

12 oz can bought at Specs in Houston, drank at home. Pours dark gold with medium head. Very strong hops and floral aromas. Taste is hops balanced by citrus and pine. Well done DIPA, but not sure that I could tell it from Amy other first or second tier beer of the same style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
