The other reviews will tell you what this beer looks like - very typical unfiltered-looking American IPA. The mouthfeel is a bit heavy for an IPA reminding me of Enterprise IPA from Drydock in Aurora Colorado before they dialed in the recipe back when they were in a hallway connected to The Brew Hut.
No single hop note seems to shine although there is plenty of bitterness - I didn't get a lot of citrus or pine but plenty of "dank" as I also find in Modus Hoperendi from Ska. The aroma is fairly light as I've been spoiled by Green Flash however this is by no means a bad beer. If it suffers from anything it is a lack of pronounced identity but perhaps they will find their groove.
Wow - I guess that's a lot of "shout outs" for a review but comparison to mainstays is inevitable in this style.

On tap at Downhouse in Houston, TX.
A: Pours a burnt copper/orange color. A two finger white head forms with good retention. Plenty of lace is left behind.
S: Burnt caramel malts. A nice sweetness before the dryness of the hops. Big piney hops with a bitter finish.
T: Follows the nose. The malts are very sweet up front. Burnt sugars and wood even. Lots of hops come next that are slightly soapy. Piney and bitter with a long finish.
M/D: A medium body and good carbonation. Stick and soapy. Easy to drink for the hop heads. I enjoyed my pint without a problem, and could have ordered another.
A nice IPA. I am not a huge fan of the burnt sugar like flavors, and the hops come in a bit abrasive for my tastes. Though a good stab at the style.

From can to shaker pint.
About two-finger's of off-white and cratered-top foam. Good retention and thick lacing. Opaque caramel - honey orange body.
Sweet aromas from this IPA, also a soft nose, hard to pull anything out of the beer. There is a touch of tangelo, honey, and a caramel malt.
The palate has more of a piney, earthy, and peppery quality. The finish hits with more pine and aspirin, a crackery malt becomes noticeable as well. English IPA flavors more so than American.
Decent wallop of bitterness and slightly dry finish. Totally appropriate light-medium body and good creaminess.
Deep Ellum IPA does not do anything fancy. However, the beer drinks easily. It tastes more like an English IPA than an American hopped IPA, so that is a bit disappointing. Still, I am glad I got to try it, thanks Darthvohn!
