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, Rye, Vienna, Honey Yeast - English Ale Other - Raw cane sugar

Flavors are sweet, a bit boozy, floral, pine and sticky resins. A touch fusel. Earthy hop character, a touch spicy, pine. Lively carbonation but a sticky mouthfeel.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Approximately 10 oz tulip draft pour at Craft and Growler in Dallas, Texas. The pour is a hazed orange ruby with a smallish off white head. The aroma is bright citrus peel, resin, dank, and a softly sweet floral. The taste is the citrus, spiced resin hops balanced with caramel toasted malt. No alcohol present to speak of. The palate is medium bodied, soft fine carbonation, and a mineral finish. Nice stuff, I like the balance and nuance of the Deep Ellum regular IPA better, but this is a really solid hoppy beer as well.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Cloudy amber orange brew with some white head. Nose is dank, citrus, rye, and caramel. Not overly bitter with lots of hop bite, malt backbone, and rye spice.

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours slightly hazy dark copper with bubbly near white head. Aromas of rye spice and a lot of hoppiness. Med+ body. Lots of rye/spice. Lots of fruity/resin/floral hop. This is a major taste treat. Rye. Lots of hop. Symphony of flavors in the mouth. Finishing far from sweet with lots of hop. Yum! There was no penny pinching here. Brilliant. (love rye)
