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

One of the first ever bottles off the production line (a test run I believe).

A - Medium amber gold color, beautiful clarity, with light effervescence that produces sparse lacing.

S - Mixture bright citrus and dank tropical fruit with some floral pollen and spice character as well. There is also a subtle array of alcohol and very light malt/grain harmonies.

T - A stunningly flavorful rush - top IPA quality without question. Fresh and bright bitter hops with citrus, pine and yellow fruit. There is a perfect addition of a dank tropical tasting hops (probably Citra). While this is an American IPA, and mostly about the hops, the malt base is a stand-up contributor, but I appreciate the absence of overt crystal malt flavors. It has a subtler backbone, Munich or Vienna, that lingers for a while in the tail. Bitter it is, but it's an artful bitterness riding atop a subtle swell of a crafted malt backbone. Then the bitterness lingers further.

M - Medium bodied and slightly slick on the tongue fading to that characteristic IPA astringency.

O - This is the art of the IPA well executed. Excellent.

32oz growler thanks to SSW117. Filled on Tuesday (less then 5 days). Poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours a dark amber red definitely darker then your average IPA. About a finger of slightly brown off-white head that dissipates fairly fast but not too fast and leaves some spotty lacing. About average carbonation.

S- Nice sweet citrusy hops, some light spices, some amber malts, a little bit above average aroma strength.

T- Citrus hops- light grapefruit, some lemon, some amber malts, and light spices. Finishes with a light spiced amber malt profile with lightly bitter hops that lingers for a little bit. Nice pleasant taste- plenty of hops, would have liked them to be a little bit more citrusy though.

M- Medium balanced, goes down very easily, refreshing.

O- This was a nice IPA that I was pleasantly surprised by. It could have been balanced a little bit better- it was a little bit too dominated by the amber malts and spices, I would have liked the hops to come out a little bit more in the taste. Other then that it was pretty good and I'm definitely glad I got to try it.

Deep Ellum IPA is the freshest, cleanest hop flavored beer I've had. Being brewed locally, I probably never had it past week since it left the brewery so this is why it's so clean.

Smell-The nose on this IPA is so fresh and clean.
The mouthfeel is also very easy to move around the pallet and easy to swallow.

Taste-Clean hops, easy to drink, and hard to stop drinking.

Appearance-Light-golden color with a great head with a lot to offer.
