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

I enjoyed this for the first time on draft at Twisted Root in The Shops at Legacy last weekend. This brew is a West Coast styled IPA and has quickly become one of my favorite IPAs. It has a really nice balance between the hops, which are definitely present...for those hopheads, and the malt backbone. My recommendation to all is: when you see this at your favorite Watering Hole don't hesitate to give it a try; you won't be disappointed! ---Rated by mcesooner via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crash_the_dog (162) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - AUG 30, 2013
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

This is a great IPA in a can! Partly cloudy with a chance of cat piss! Bitterness is just right and well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (3516) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours a hazy honey amber with a fairly thick, pale golden tan, fine-bubbled head. Strong aroma is quite hoppy with a fruity undertone that is equal parts citrus and apple/pear and has more than a hint of hay. Flavor is muy hoppy, evergreen and woody, somewhat bitter,subtly citrus and pomme fruity. Firm texture is fairly fizzy and leaves a hoppy, fruity finish. Never mind oil - strike this!

Faint hoppy aroma. Starts with hoppy light leaf then comes the malts and sugars. Some citrus on the finish

On tap at Flying Saucer Fort Worth. I have always lived this IPA, no idea how I haven't rated it yet. It's fairly mild, a little sweet. Still a fantastic beer.

This beer just plain brings it hard. Lots and lots of grapefruit - no complaints about underhopping this IPA. If I have any complaints, the alcohol flavor comes through just a bit too much. Still, right out of the chute, this is the best IPA being made in TX.
