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.

BMan1113VR (7834) - 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!

Dogbrick (7681) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2013
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.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 27, 2013
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.

phaleslu (6291) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2012
Draft sample at Schlafly Repeal of Prohibition Festival 2012. Pours a clear golden-amber color with a small white head. Aroma of big, citrusy hops- so fresh- with caramel malts and pineapple. The flavor brings even more citrusy hops, tropical fruits, caramel malts, pine resin, and a little bit of spice. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice and fresh.

5000 (6211) - 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!
