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

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.

12oz can from bananabi11 that he got via trade. Thanks! Pine. Sticky. Sweet malts. Much more malt focused than hoped, disappointingly. 13.3

jredmond (7852) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2016 Can at the Sheraton Hotel in Dallas. Pours a deep amber body with thin white lacing. Nose is peach, sugar and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of sweet malt, sugar and some vague stone fruit character. A bit too sweet overall - really no idea on the freshness of this, could potentially be decent if this was old as the malt sweetness was pretty dominate.

islay (2365) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2016
4 oz. pour, on tap at The Ginger Man in Austin, Texas. Consumed on 11-6-16. Tan to light amber. Beige head. Good lacing. Clear liquid. I dont love the color, but I do like the lacing. Orange Fruity Pebbles aroma. Orange and mint toothpaste scents. Perhaps my least favorite common IPA scents. Artificial orange and lemon but also some more authentic citrus as well as pine in the flavor. Mint and eucalyptus. Flavor not great but better than aroma. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. A little too soft and perhaps undercarbonated. Below average IPA.

baraciisch (3028) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2016
Deep burnt orange in color... Aroma of caramel, crystal malt, sticky citrus hops... Flavor is overly malty, sweet crystal malts dominate, some mild citrus hop notes... Hops may have faded/gone bad since the can is pretty old... Not a fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
