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.

Nose of tropical fruit and florals. Pours a honey hued amber with a short lived white head and sheet lacing. The taste follows the nose with tropical fruit, citrus and notes of pine. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, very tasty and refreshing. Will buy again.

"A nasal blast of tropical fruits, pineapple, orange and grapefruit before even pouring from the can. A follow up of bready malt and pine in the flavor adds complexity. An assertive yet easy drinking iPa. Very very good. Thanks Hannah for providing me with this unknown gem."

HonkeyBra (3420) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2014
12 oz. can from Secret Santa. Thanks man! Pours an orangish amber with a small white head. Lacing peppers the glass. Aroma of citrus, pine, and some doughy malts. Citra really shines through. Flavor is bitter, with lots of tropical hop flavor. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes hoppy. Pretty interesting IPA.

Faint hoppy aroma. Starts with hoppy light leaf then comes the malts and sugars. Some citrus on the finish

I really liked it. Dont know the IBU’s but its plenty to make me want to drink a few. Its nose is citrus floral hop. Aftertaste on palate lingers with hop resins but not crazy. Appearance is dark amber color with foamy head. Had on tap, tasty brew, overall really nice offering.
