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

Can from Dr Silverworm. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate complex bittersweet flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of medium duration. This is a good beer.

Sample at Petrol Station in Houston. The beer pours a cloudy dark copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Hops, citrus and malt in the nose. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, tropical fruit and bready malt. The finish is fruity with a lingering hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

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.

BMan1113VR (7898) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
On tap, many different times, many ounces consumed. Seems to be on tap pretty much everywhere in Dallas (a good thing). Pours a hazed yellow-golden hue with a lasting white head that leaves great lace. Aromas are of citrus, pine, esters, orange, pear, really floral, mildly bready, very light caramel or honey malt character. Flavors are of canned peaches, soft yet floral stone fruit, tropical fruit, grassy and somewhat juicy hops. Light bitterness balances. Mild malt. Medium bodied and dry with good carbonation. A great TX IPA!

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.
