COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís no secret, at DEBC, weíre 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. Weíve taken the IPA category to its Event Horizon, and pulled back just enough to see the edge. Get the big picture, itís hoppy! Hops - Summit, Columbus, Apollo, Liberty, and more! Malts - Pale ale, Rye, Vienna, Honey Yeast - English Ale Other - Raw cane sugar

BMan1113VR (7863) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head. Aromas are dank, citrusy, spicy, herbal. A little bit of sweet marmalade, a touch sticky and boozy. 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.

12 oz can crushed with my supervisor. Pours a hazy orange with a good white head and great lacing. Oh, if you donít know what diacetyl smells like, get a load of this one. Could smell it from the can before I even poured it out. Can get some hop presence, but mostly just butter. Not undrinkable, but damn.

Pours an orange color. Notes of orange citrus, brown sugar, spicy rye, earth, and cereal grains. Hops are pretty well balanced.

slowrunner77 (3443) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Pretty big across the board...big bodied and slightly sticky. Ample malt, but bitter enough to satisfy, while also being fruity and spicy/earthy at the same time. Good brew.

HonkeyBra (3389) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12 oz. can. Pours an opaque reddish orange with a small eggshell colored head. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin and floral notes. Flavor is sweet and bitter, with strong citrus peel and pine bitterness. Some booziness and sweet malt notes. Some booze in the finish. Pretty nice strong ale/DIPA.

On tap at deep ellum. I personally couldnít tell much of a difference from the other IPA. Typical IPA aroma and flavor. Good beer.

Suttree (5145) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Can from roxtersoxter - thanks! Cloudy orange, ring of foam. Big grapefruit aroma, plus some brown sugar or molasses. Smooth malt flavors at first, brown sugar, mostly, then grapefruit hops. Unfortunately starts to go south as it warms, with butter aromas and flavors emerging.

roxtersoxter (307) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours deep caramel color with full tan head out of can. Excellent aroma of citrus, pineapple, and of course hops. First thing to hit me in this beer is a caramel taste followed by a smooth hop flavor. Pleasantly surprised by this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark brownish orangeish color with a dark tan head. When held to light, itís a beautiful burnt orange color. The lacing is wonderful. Aroma is pineapple, candy orange, caramel malts. Not a whole lot of hop characteristics. This follows to the taste. Much like Karbachís Rodeo Clown, this is a malt bomb of an IPA. Itís not my thing when it comes to IPAís, much less double IPAís. Iíll drink it, but wonít search it out again.

Hazy copper with a big creamy cream colored head. Aroma of pine, rye, caramel, and citrus. Taste is malty sweet with decent bitterness and some spice from the rye. Smooth and medium bodied.
