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

Good, well balanced IPA. Nice piney and floral aroma. Nice amber color with a frothy head. Hops hit you up front but not in an overpowering way. The piney spruce essence continues on through each sip. Very easy to drink. Glad to see they are bottling this now.

Draught at ACBE. Quite malt-forward, biscuit, caramel, decent bouquet of tropical fruit and green hops, clean finish. Good stuff, might be one of my first Texas IPA and you can feel they have their own take on the style.

fiulijn (16395) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Draught at Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2015, as Golden IPA
Hazy deep blond color with compact head. Nice aroma of cereals and hops. Very mild flavor of cereals, not much hops either, correct bitterness.
Boring, more Pale Ale than IPA.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2955) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
Can at the American Craft Beer Experience. Deep Ellis IPA pours a ruddy orange. It has a lovely hop aroma. It’s well balanced easy drinking stuff. Good hoppiness counterbalanced by a solid malt base, I really enjoyed it.

TimE (4060) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 20, 2015
Rocky white head. Very big citrusy nose with lots of caramel. Big malty caramel backbone with modest bitterness. Smooth and bitter. Malty, but enjoyable IPA.

rumproasts (4006) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Tap. Deep golden with small head. Solid IPA, but fairly by the book. Medium body with nice punchy hops.

bytemesis (4463) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 9, 2015

mcberko (9200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
On tap at VCBW Festival, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Nose brings out light biscuity malt and some very light piney notes. Flavour is clean but pretty bland, with biscuity notes and light piney hopes. Leaves something to be desired - missing some oomph. Meh.

12 oz can dated 05/08/15. Pours dark orange with an off-white head that lingers for a minute. Citrus aroma dominated by orange with some red apple and a slight bit of oxidation. More orange flavor with a nice balance of sweetness and bitterness. Clean finish leaves only the flavor or orange rind. Very nice.
