On tap at the Hay Merchant in Houston -- poured into 13 oz. tulip.
L: red. kind of awesome.
S: HOPS! citrusy grapefruit, classic American DIPA; so good over the second half.
T: possibly too bitter. but still --> grapefruity. tries to achieve balance, but at 100+ IBUs, let's not kid ourselves here: this dude wants to be bitter, is bitter, and frankly, I can't for the life of me detect much else. Rye? where? all I taste are hops.
F: just fine. a light-medium body. certainly not overly anything.
O: not bad, not fantistic. you want hops, you get it here ... you want a Texas-brewed beer with hops, you get it here. it probably goes for the fantastic with the 100+ IBUs and the name "Dream Crusher," and it definitely achieves it on the hops' side.
overall, it's good enough to make me want to give Deep Ellum lots of rope and a lot more tries for their other styles. based on the overall presentation/taste here, Deep Ellum makes a damn good showing. Bravo and all .. but I need not try this one again. it's a hops salad in liquid form and not much more -- with a name like "Dream Crusher," I assume that's what they're going for, and they nail it in a suprisingly drinkable form.
Serving type: on-tap
