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

onceblind (8189) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Slightly hazy bright copper with a thin foamy white head. Nose is rich with dank resinous NW hops, rich ruby grapefruit, and amazing amounts of caramel. Flavor has much in the way of floral and grapefruity dankness, but the bitterness is restrained enough to enjoy it easily, and it helps that its citrusy/caramelly sweet. Full and balanced and lovely.

MartzMimic (84) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Poured a half-inch foamy head. Burnt orange (it is a Texas beer, after all). Faint citrus and orange nose, with a touch of hops. Those same things carry over to taste, with a bit of pine. Nothing big at all, certainly not like the hoppy IPAs I usually enjoy. Extremely well-balanced. I liked this one a lot.

On draft at Brewed. Yellowish-copper color. Citrus and pine nose. From there it gets unusual... starts fizzy, moves thru some pine and citrus hops and finishes with acute tartness that stays in the mouth. And then maybe even more fizzy. Quite unusual. Also, fizzy.

thome50 (1286) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Can from Eric. Pours a hazy golden with thin white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is piney, herbal, odd citrus something going on. Taste is a little too malty for my IPA taste. Some orange rind, zest and pith. Not horrible but doesnt really jump out as a very hoppy IPA. Not overly bitter or sweet.

deyholla (10708) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a near clear amber orange with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of onion, weed and pine with a backing sweet grain note. Flavor starts with bitter pine and weed with a touch of earthy grains.

12 fl oz can. Courtesy of deyholla.
Hazy amber colour with a small off-white head. Fruity aroma with moderate bitterness. Balanced. Resin, fruits, moderate bitterness and some malty sweetness in the flavour. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Very balanced IPA.

Can shared by Derek- pours hazy chestnut w thin white head. Nose is hoppy and herby. Taste is potent hops and wheat. A bit unbalanced on the weedy hop side.
