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

Deep amber ipa with a smell reminiscent of a hop draped pineapple in the piney woods. Very bitter yet sweet taste that lingers...The aroma overpowers the taste. Overall though this is a good ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Stuck in the airport. After everything in San Diego this is obvious Texas beer. Balanced malty. Lemon and ends with a hop bite. Not bad. But not west coast. Creamy with some corn grain notes. Nose citrus lemon. Thick head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Ginger Man Austin TX. Can you go wrong with an IPA in Austin? I don’t think so. Clear copper with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, a little earth. Taste is bitter citrusy hops, not much malt. Still good, I’m not afraid of a little hops.

jgb9348 (5529) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Hazy and very crisp copper body with an amber glow and a thick three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of grass, citrus, resin and some light pine - notes of hop pellets as well. Medium to Full-bodied; Nice sweet citrus and grassy hoppiness with some grapefruit, hay and a large herbal element, all with some smooth malt that shows well. Aftertaste shows a little grass, a lot of sweetness, some hay, light cereal malt and a smooth fruit sweetness - noticeable pear and apple flavours - nice! Overall, a good IPA with a nice balance of malt and some smooth fruity and grassy flavours. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Spec’s Liqour in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$2,62 sampled at home in Washington on 30-April-2016 when it was pretty noticeable that the can was about to explode!

BrownPaperBags (16) - Plano, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2016
Can poured into stemmed beer glass Deep golden bordering on orange with an off white/yellow head that is quite dense. The pine scent is heavy with some spice. The taste is creamy with the huge head that has solid retention. Loads of bittering hops in this. Pine mostly. Solid IPA. True NW style.

triple_belgian (11) - Rodange, LUXEMBOURG - MAR 29, 2016
Pours clear amber with average white head, that disappears quickly. Aroma: swwet, fruity and a hint of hops. Taste is good bitter backbone with fruity undertones, especially orange peel. Bitterness is long lasting but not aggressive. Overall: ome of my IPA favorites, buy it regularly whenever it is available.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2016 Tap at the source. Pours clear golden, minimal soapy head. Aroma is citrus, orange, lemon, grapefruit, pine. Flavor is lots of citrus, pine little bit of honey sugar sweetness going on. A classic ipa. Nice, refreshing, balanced. I like this. A good flagship.
