Notes/Commercial Description:
It's no secret, at DEBC, we're fond of hops. Citrusy, piney, floral and fruity hops are at least a third of the reason we got ourselves into this whole adventure. Hops may be the current ruler of the craft beer scene, and we, for one, welcome our resinous, spicy, bitter overlords. We've taken the IPA category to its Event Horizon, and pulled back just enough to see the edge. Get the big picture, it's hoppy!

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub in Plano.

The beer pours an orange color with a medium-sized white head. The aroma is exactly what I expect from a double IPA. I get a lot of orange citrus and pine notes, as well as a slightest hint of some biscuit malt. The flavor is where the rye really comes through and it is strong enough to be able to stand out above the strong hop notes. I also get some nice orange and pine notes in the flavor with a medium amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12 oz can pours a dark copper color with a large cap of off-white head. Excellent retention and lace.

Nose is caramely sweet with lots of deep malts. Hops are there as well, mostly citric and tropical - but this one definitely has a strong malt backbone.

Taste is loaded with resinous hop bitterness, sweet, candy-corn maltiness and a fair amount of alcohol. There is some hop flavor, but it is overshadowed by the aforementioned triumvirate of malt, bitterness and alcohol. It has balance, and the mouthfeel is full. It goes down fairly easy as well. It is a pretty good beer, though I dont think quite as good as the ratings here suggest.
