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

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 (3741) - 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 (6400) - 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.

On tap at Flying Saucer Addison. Pours hazy orange copper with white head. Aromas of peach, pine, some citrus, and bit of bready malts. Flavors of tropical fruit, peach, citrus hops, some light pine, and bit of sweet bready malts. Nice body and nice hop bitterness. Some alcohol warmth. Damn solid IPA.
