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

mcberko (13254) - 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.

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.
