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

MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Poured a half-inch foamy head. Burnt orange (it is a Texas beer, after all). Faint citrus and orange nose, with a touch of hops. Those same things carry over to taste, with a bit of pine. Nothing big at all, certainly not like the hoppy IPAs I usually enjoy. Extremely well-balanced. I liked this one a lot.

On draft at Brewed. Yellowish-copper color. Citrus and pine nose. From there it gets unusual... starts fizzy, moves thru some pine and citrus hops and finishes with acute tartness that stays in the mouth. And then maybe even more fizzy. Quite unusual. Also, fizzy.

thome50 (1022) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Can from Eric. Pours a hazy golden with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is piney, herbal, odd citrus something going on. Taste is a little too malty for my IPA taste. Some orange rind, zest and pith. Not horrible but doesn’t really jump out as a very hoppy IPA. Not overly bitter or sweet.

deyholla (6608) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of onion, weed and pine with a backing sweet grain note. Flavor starts with bitter pine and weed with a touch of earthy grains.

12 fl oz can. Courtesy of deyholla.
Hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with moderate bitterness. Balanced. Resin, fruits, moderate bitterness and some malty sweetness in the flavour. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Very balanced IPA.

Can shared by Derek- pours hazy chestnut w thin white head. Nose is hoppy and herby. Taste is potent hops and wheat. A bit unbalanced on the weedy hop side.

scootpolute (9) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2013 does not count
On the fuller side of medium bodied, juicy, crisp and bitter…Very clean, Very drinkable...A bit hazy/dark and orange, rather than copper in color...but, just an outstanding American IPA all around… pretty much nailed it with this one...VERY refreshing and will get again and...…Goin’ to look for a tap ASAP!!!...Chasin’ Cheers :~)

Crash_the_dog (148) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Exactly what I'm after in an American IPA - on tap at a dallas restaurant. Bright copper color, thick head and nice, sticky lacing. Complex layered flavors, with a crispness all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
