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

Massive pillowy off white head tops this beautiful orange/amber brew. Medium opacity with archipelagos of lacing down the sides. As soon as the tab is popped this one delivers juicy fruity hops. Almost oaty creaminess to the malts and a piney bitterness trickling in the finish. Drinks incredibly creamy smoothe and sticky at the same time. Wow. Suuuper easy to drink. Hops are dank and juicy with a hint of sweet tropical fruits, but also of juicy bitter citrus and a pine and pith type finish. There’s a middle that is amber waves of grain as well.

AirForceHops (4421) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 3, 2015
Draft at Craft Pride, Light copper color, lasting head retention. Aroma is floral, with a hefty amount of pine.

The body is light and crisp with a dryness that ends clean. Wow! I just had a Imperial IPA that was not nearly clean and hoppy. Two flavors done well, pine and floral. Very nicely drinkable. I’m sitting here with my buddy Ben and we are talking about the dynamics of finely crafted IPA. " drops the Mic and walk off the stage "

Draught at ACBE. Quite malt-forward, biscuit, caramel, decent bouquet of tropical fruit and green hops, clean finish. Good stuff, might be one of my first Texas IPA and you can feel they have their own take on the style.

fiulijn (16424) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2015
Draught at Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2015, as Golden IPA
Hazy deep blond color with compact head. Nice aroma of cereals and hops. Very mild flavor of cereals, not much hops either, correct bitterness.
Boring, more Pale Ale than IPA.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2983) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 21, 2015
Can at the American Craft Beer Experience. Deep Ellis IPA pours a ruddy orange. It has a lovely hop aroma. It’s well balanced easy drinking stuff. Good hoppiness counterbalanced by a solid malt base, I really enjoyed it.

TimE (4074) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 20, 2015
Rocky white head. Very big citrusy nose with lots of caramel. Big malty caramel backbone with modest bitterness. Smooth and bitter. Malty, but enjoyable IPA.

Tap. Deep golden with small head. Solid IPA, but fairly by the book. Medium body with nice punchy hops.
