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!

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.

I truly believe this is the BEST IPA in the DFW area or maybe even Texas...and it is now in my top tier of IPAs period....as of 6/29/14 and my 1st tasting of it. Way to go Deep Ellum!!! I am a native Texas and have been waiting for a top shelf Texas IPA for a long time and now we have at least one.
