RATINGS: 34   MEAN: 3.32/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.28/5   SEASONAL: Autumn   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
Hop Seeker #1 is the first installment of our quarterly IPA series, a 100% wet hop ale. We used fresh cut Centennial hops in the initial boil and will use fresh cut Equinox hops in the dry hop! Equinox is a newer variety that has a pronounced aroma profile with citrus, tropical fruit, floral and herbal characteristics, including lemon, lime and papaya. By using such an unholy amount of wet hops in copious late additions, we coaxed aromas of citrus, melon and resin from the green beasties. Wet hops all the way through!

jgb9348 (6058) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Clear light amber and copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, seven centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of pure resinous and floral hops with some light citrus, a touch of sugar and some pine as well - nice and fragrant. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent hop flavour at first that dies relatively quickly and shows some resin, white grapes, pine and mostly floral elements and almost no malt at all. Aftertaste shows some grain, pine, earth, pineapple and kick of grass at the tail end. Overall, a pretty mellow beer that shows a lot of nice aromas, but develops nothing in the flavour at all near the end - interesting to try, but not really worth trying, unless you like fresh hopped APA style beers with no depth nor complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Specs Liqour in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$2,62 sampled at home in Washington on 23-November-2015.

Can. Big pillow off antique white head. Has a slight haze. Is golden in color. The smell is fruit, resin, pine, slight styrofoam, orange, decent but not spectacular. The taste is similar to the smell with a medium bitterness and more pine notes. I expected more and better.

A can with Erica and Patty after the 8 mile hike in Lake Houston Wilderness park. Real nice piney and citrus fresh hop aroma. Flavor almost as good, but weaker. Some malt in there. Refreshing!

Pours hazy orange with a medium white head. Smells like citrus juice and tropical fruits. Taste is fruity, juicy, citrus, and bitter. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Deep Ellum Hop Seeker finishes with a lingering fruitiness.

TXBadger (2763) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Had this on tap; reviewed from notes: pours a golden color with off-white head. Floral notes, skunked grass, and old wood notes on the nose; not much on the palate. Not a very well done beer. Seems like they rushed it out.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
On tap at World of Beer. Dark pour with an off-white head. Aroma is sappy flowers. Taste is sweet biscuits, grainy, almost chocolate, and definitely bitter.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a hazy deep amber with thick beige head. Arena is very malty with a balanced amount of choppy/grapefruit citrus. Flavor is much the same with a sweet malty backbone. Medium-heavy mouth feel with medium carbonation. Overall, I dig it!

BelgianBeerGal (4014) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Draft flight at FS FW. Ruby-bronze pour with a thin brown head. Light, sweet, citrus hop aroma. Fairly light flavor with sweet hops and only light bitterness. Name was appropriate: left me looking for the hops. Not bad, just light flavors.
