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

Bottle from secret Santa 2012 - blutt59. Pours clear amber color with off white head. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine. Lots of pine flavor with some bitter grapefruit rind and just a hint of malts. Medium body with a crisp finish. Thanks Bob.

kevinator (909) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Good, well balanced IPA. Nice piney and floral aroma. Nice amber color with a frothy head. Hops hit you up front but not in an overpowering way. The piney spruce essence continues on through each sip. Very easy to drink. Glad to see they are bottling this now.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 draft at BJ’s of all places. Damn; I liked an ipa. hard to tell aroma in bar - slight citrus. very easy drinking beer - well balanced; hops are there not bitter and well balanced - will try again. 03/2/13 tried again from can. aroma is quite nice; topical fruit, maybe pine. it was uneven at times; sometimes it was just a hop bomb and sometimes it was well balanced - grapefruit flavor with a strong hop end. nice to know there is a good local ipa if I need one!

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Pours clear orange with a small white head. Not much carbonation. Strong grapefruit aroma from the hops. Typical American IPA with over the top hop bitterness which really detracts from the real style. (Not sure why so many hop varieties need to be used) Lingering sticky finish.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Cloudy apricot color. Pure white head that leaves rings of lace. Mellow citrus aroma. Mild citrus flavor with a hint of sweetness, bitterness, and carbonation. Some pulpy orange and grapefruit notes. Just a little kick at the end. Very cool, sessionable and tasty. 2 thumbs up Deep Ellum.

A cloudy copper ale. Small white head. Musty sweet hop resin aroma. The flavor is even better. Its perfectly drinkable. It has a 60/40 hop to malt balance in the taste which fills the palate with pleasure. The aftertaste OS bittersweet and the finish on the dry side. A toto if you can find it.

blankboy (6045) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
Draught at Black Sheep Lodge, Austin, Oct. 20. Pours a slightly hazy copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, lots of citrusy and resiny hops, along with some fruit and caramel malt. Resiny hop flavour, a touch burnt, along with fruit and a hint of alcohol. Dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied. A very good IPA.

Tried this beer on tap at The Flying Saucer in Addison, TX. Aroma, floral hops and citrus. Flavor slight citrus and a hoppy punch in the taste buds. Good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
