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

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2012
On draught at Ginger Man Ft. Worth. Pours dark copper color with eggshell head. Aroma had citrus, resin and bready notes. Taste was malty sweet and bitter. This was a more malt-forward IPA than I prefer, but it did have a nice citrusy hop blend that made it quite balanced. Respectable beer, but not one I’d search out because the heavy malt character.

BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
On tap, many different times, many ounces consumed. Seems to be on tap pretty much everywhere in Dallas (a good thing). Pours a hazed yellow-golden hue with a lasting white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are of citrus, pine, esters, orange, pear, really floral, mildly bready, very light caramel or honey malt character. Flavors are of canned peaches, soft yet floral stone fruit, tropical fruit, grassy and somewhat juicy hops. Light bitterness balances. Mild malt. Medium bodied and dry with good carbonation. A great TX IPA!
