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

Exactly what I'm after in an American IPA - on tap at a dallas restaurant. Bright copper color, thick head and nice, sticky lacing. Complex layered flavors, with a crispness all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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.

Can from blutt59. Orange amber pour big white head. Nose is tropical fruits amd malt. Tastes plenty malty, grapefruit, papaya, mango, pine, and caramel. Not all that bitter or boozy. Pleasant easy drinking IPA.

One of my favorite Texas IPAs. Blows the more ubiquitous Hopadillo out of the water. Loads of resin and pine on the nose, with citrus, and hints of pineapple and mango. The palate is much the same, with a nice sweet maltiness upfront followed by a smooth, dry, hop bitterness. Very pleasant beer. Refreshing, easy to drink, and still interesting.
