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

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

Draft at the Flying Saucer This was enjoyed at a local bar in Ft Worth. The bartender Homer recomended the Deep Ellum IPA. The ale poured a cloudy light amber with a medium off-white head that slowly dissipated. Some lacing down the glass. This is well brewed ale. Some hops and malt on the nose. This is a medium bodied ale with flavors of resiny hops, The carbonation was average. The finish was smooth with some bitterness on the tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from a trade. Pours orange amber with white head. Nose and taste of grapefruit rind, caramel malt, pine resin, florals, ripe tropical fruit and bready malt. Medium body.

Nasty looking light amber brew. Had what looked like bacteria strands but soon realized this was the sediment from the bottom of the can. It did even out to leave it just looking cloudy. Can conditioned??? Anyways the aroma is citrus with some pine hints. The taste is a pine with some citrus and floral notes, slightly metalic. Feels very dry going down and gritty on the tongue. Has all the makings for a great IPA but just didn’t make it there. Probably would have been better in a bottle. (side note: didn’t pour the whole can into second glass and beer did look better, just have to watch for the bottom sediment)

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty amber, large foamy white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet hoppy nose, citrusy, but also a little dusty.   I have my concerns that with this head this one may be bust.   Citrusy hops up front, lots of powdery sugar flavors on the backside.   Lots of pine, and perhaps even pineapple.   Its sweet, hoppy, and lots of citrus notes.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, albiet very airy/spritzy.   Finishes smooth, but with lots of that powdery fake sugary sweetness.   I need another to re-rate as perhaps I sat on this too long.   When I poured it the glass was overflowing with foam.   Thanks Bill!

Golden color out of the can, and it would have been clearer but I can see the sediment in a can. Fresh sweet citrus and tropical fruit hop nose. This is a really juicy IPA with lots of candied orange, red grapefruit, tropical fruit and some pine, with some honey sweetness and homemade bread. Nice IPA.

Can. Taste is grapefruit, lemon zest, hay, dough, wheat and grass. Complex and interesting.

12oz Can, from Secret Santa 2013 summer, Thanks. No date on the can, no idea how old it is, with the hops listed on the can I should have loved this but alas it tasted stale and malty with no punch.. Amarillo and Citra.. coulda been a contender.
