COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our year round ode to the Pacific Northwest hop. At DEBC, we like hops, but we like American hops most of all. Here we use some of our absolute favorites. However, they might not be used like you may expect, by using varieties with high alpha acid contents (which means more potential for bitterness) and using them in ways to emphasize the flavor and aroma we can render a rather bitter ale with over the top tropical fruit, citrus, pine, floral, and more hop derived aroma and flavor. Style: American-style India Pale Ale Hops: Citra, Amarillo, Chinook, Palisade, and Summit Malts: Pale Ale, Vienna, Honey, and White Wheat Yeast: English Ale

12 oz Can. Tasted on 11/13/14. Beer from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. The aroma was strong with pine, some light floral notes & very little grapefruit. The taste had more of a piney taste was a medium bitterness than grew as the beer warmed. The finish was smooth with a short bitterness afterwards. Overall a solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nose of tropical fruit and florals. Pours a honey hued amber with a short lived white head and sheet lacing. The taste follows the nose with tropical fruit, citrus and notes of pine. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very tasty and refreshing. Will buy again.

"A nasal blast of tropical fruits, pineapple, orange and grapefruit before even pouring from the can. A follow up of bready malt and pine in the flavor adds complexity. An assertive yet easy drinking iPa. Very very good. Thanks Hannah for providing me with this unknown gem."
