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

BMan1113VR (7914) - 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. 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 (980) - 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 (2048) - 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 (647) - 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.

wrlangin (96) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2016
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

UXO (1252) - CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale amber with two fingers of fluffy ivory head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dank resiny pine, juicy citrus, tropical fruit, pale malt. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry bitter and mildly warming finish. (3/5) Makes a bold announcement on opening, with strong resiny hop aromas filling the room. And for the first half of the beer, it continues to deliver a powerful hop assault, with a one-two punch of piney resin and so much juicy citrus one might believe there’s actually tangerines in there. As the head dissipates, however, the hop aromas seem to fade with it, and the sweet malty backbone starts to show through. It never gets unpleasant, or even malt-forward, but it does lose a little steam. The finish remains strongly bitter, though, and the relatively high ABV is well-managed, manifesting as a mild warming. This is a whole bunch of fun, but I think you might need to drink ‘em fast for maximum enjoyment. (14/20)
