First off, this is an almost mastered IPA.

Appearance: orange, almost peach, with a brownish tint

Smell: smells of hops with a citrus, grapefruit-like scent

Taste: immediate grapefruit taste. Hops are definitely a strong suit. The citrus, grapefruit-like scent is definitely apparent in the taste. This is like no other IPA.

Mouthful: I felt that the more it sits, the more carbonation there is. Not overly heavy, or light. This beer can be drank fast or slow.

Overall: like I said before, this IPA is almost mastered. I could drink this beer regardless of the temperature of the beer or the temperature outside. Fantastic IPA.

Pours hazy golden color with thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing are excellent. Nice piney, hoppy aroma. Floral and slightly citric. Citric maltiness with and excellent transition to a moderate hoppy finish. Slightly soapy, excellent piney hoppy aftertaste. Great beer!! Very refreshing and smooth.

Thanks to my buddy Brian for brining this one back from Texas. Looks very promising.

A finger plus of tan head sits atop this golden orange brew.

Has a pleasant and nicely blended aroma of butterscotch, herbal hops and citrus.

A bit of grain up front to the tongue is quickly followed by a nice hit of citrus hoppiness and some melon. The taste is simple and superb.

Medium in body with a little chalkiness at the end.

This is future hall of fame IPA right here.

First off, I've only heard a little about Deep Ellum here in Fort Worth, and today was the first time I've seen any of their beer available here, and I probably would've over looked it if their cans weren't so badass lol..


A- copper-ish I guess, great big fluffy head

S- My favorite part of an IPA is the smell, and this was very impressive. Lots of citrus, a little floral, and a little spicy hop aroma with a nice sweet background.

T- Follows the nose. Mainly nice citrus with good clean bitterness.

M- Medium-ish body, crisp finish

O- I can enjoy this one over and over.. I love it. Deep Ellum does their hoppy beers for hop heads for sure, and that's fine by me. Very bitter for a regular IPA. Great hop flavor and aroma.. Definitely worth a try, and it hangs with just about any other IPA out there in my opinion.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: The cloudy amber liquid arrives with a nice cap of foam that leaves a curtain of lacing behind

Smell: Ruby red grapefruit, clementine oranges and biscuity undertones

Taste: The hops dominate, up front, witha range of citrusy flavors that are joined by a resinous, piney edge; a hint of the biscuit lies underneath along with other complex malts that add a bit of caramel; while the malts make a difference, the beer is still hop dominant

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A really nice IPA with just the right amount of malt to balance the citrusy hop profile
