COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop Seeker #1 is the first installment of our quarterly IPA series, a 100% wet hop ale. We used fresh cut Centennial hops in the initial boil and will use fresh cut Equinox hops in the dry hop! Equinox is a newer variety that has a pronounced aroma profile with citrus, tropical fruit, floral and herbal characteristics, including lemon, lime and papaya. By using such an unholy amount of wet hops in copious late additions, we coaxed aromas of citrus, melon and resin from the green beasties. Wet hops all the way through!

SPDickerman (1121) - Texas, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Smells like citrus juice and tropical fruits. Taste is fruity, juicy, citrus, and bitter. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Deep Ellum Hop Seeker finishes with a lingering fruitiness.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a hazy deep amber with thick beige head. Arena is very malty with a balanced amount of choppy/grapefruit citrus. Flavor is much the same with a sweet malty backbone. Medium-heavy mouth feel with medium carbonation. Overall, I dig it!

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Smells like sweet malts, hints of caramel and marzipan and bit of rotten fruit. Tastes pretty similar but with more fruit and distinguishable foresty hoppiness.

mar (5180) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is fresh hops, rich caramel, sticky, and dank. Very smooth on the palate, dough, caramel, gritty hops, and a nice finish.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2012
On tap @ Jack Macís Ruddy amber brew with a bit of sticky white head and lacing. Nose of caramel, citrus, and resiny hops. Slightly bitter up front with toffee, caramel and less of a hop presence than I expected.

Draught. Nose is soapy and floral with a sweet malt note. Clear light reddish brown with a thin head. Sweet with a clean hoppyness and lots of fruit notes. Easy drinking. Pine, lemon, peach. Good body. Finishes slightly astringnet.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
This beer has a bold, deep amber/brown hued color with a dense, but thin, off-white head. Its aroma is thick and bold with hops, grain, and sweetness prevailing in a concentrated way with an almost Pacific style earthiness. Itís a little herbal, and almost spicy, in the mouth Ė a characteristic that presents itself mostly in the finish, but joins with the hop presence in the flavor to make this seem a little off-centered from your every day Strong Ale or double IPA. This is a fairly resinous beer. Dense and full in the belly, thatís for sure. Overall, though, itís fairly mellow for a strong ale, well yet subtly-flavored and hides its alcohol well

Wordsworth (147) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 29, 2012
A lightly sweet and hoppy nose with a caramel hop flavor. Brownish orange color. Goes down smooth without a lingering after taste
