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

12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Shared with robotopera. Hazy orange-red color. Thin off-white head. Very nice ropes and spread of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Nice tropical, citrusy fruity hop aroma. Good zesty moderate sweet taste. Light spicy malt, caramel malt. Satisfying, tasty IPA.

Good stuff, received in trade. Love the grapefruit driven citrus hops along with just enough malts. Good floral undertones.

Poured from a can. Beautiful color with a forthy white head that sticks around. My only real complaint with this beer is in the aroma department, could use a little kick there. Taste is bitter, but not over powering. Very tasty, easy drinking IPA, can see myself buying this often to be honest.

SpringsLicker (3127) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Thanks to crajun for sending this one in trade! Can Slightly hazy amber pour smallish off-white head. Hop aroma of pine resin and citrus. The flavor has a big malt presence. Sweetness that comes through a generous amount of hops.. There are a few breweries out there that would sell this as their IIPA.

DocJitsu (908) - Florida, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Pours a clear copper-golden color with a sudsy, off white head. Pine and citrus nose. Pliny the Elder-like bouquet. Powdery crispness to the texture. A bit of cannabis-like umami underlies and provides structure to the pine/grapefruit hop flavors. The perfect balance of sweetness from the malt efficiently does itís job without interference at any point during the process. Excellent effort.

pete4999 (1034) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2013
On tap at the brewery on Halloween. I donít get a lot of the tropical notes that the tasting description seems to indicate, but it is certainly hoppy. Smooth and drinkable, but slightly boozy considering the low-ish ABV.

Cavie (3786) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Can. Pours a hazy reddish orange color with a foamy head response. Aroma is very hoppy, citrus, resin, tree sap and lots of sweetness. Flavor is also a nice hoppy mixture. Good citrus flavor and hop resin. Finishes very flavorful. One of my favorites from DEBC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

docsteigs (527) - Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Aroma of piney citrus hops. Very good IPA look. Taste is well balanced, a little on the malty side w a touch of Munich(?). Clean but somewhat heavy finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly hazy bright copper with a thin foamy white head. Nose is rich with dank resinous NW hops, rich ruby grapefruit, and amazing amounts of caramel. Flavor has much in the way of floral and grapefruity dankness, but the bitterness is restrained enough to enjoy it easily, and it helps that itís citrusy/caramelly sweet. Full and balanced and lovely.
