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.

Poured from a can into a pint mug at around 52 degrees F. Pours sunset orange with pale yellow around the edges - much like a beautiful Texas sunset. Slight sediment, but I tend to like more... Three finger cavernous beige foam on top that lingers down to about a finger thick layer which stays - very pretty beer to look at... Smell is nice but sort of weak, typical of good single IPAs though. Medium-to-full bodied mouth feel and the alcohol is hidden well. Lots of bubbles but not too much carbonation on the palette... just right, actually. Taste is what really makes this beer - apricots, papaya, ripe mandarin oranges, slight peachy like sweetness with a citrus tartness that coats the tongue and stays there... Malt regiment is such that the fruitiness is slightly more sweet than bitter, like they are sun-ripened fruits. Bitterness comes at the end and stays for a long time, battling the lingering sweet fruits... Awesome complex IPA, I only wish the alcohol percentage was a bit higher.

Pours hazy orangish gold with a nice 1 and 1/2 finger width head. Effervescent-looking body. This is the IPA smell I love: pineapple/ apricot, light pine and a hint of underlying malt. The only other similar style I recall with a smell rivaling this is Zombie Dust. Taste follows suit well, with bitter hops and tropical notes, some ruby red grapefruit, juicy, pine. Nice bitter linger. Juicy. perfect for my liking. Other hopheads would surely agree, especially if you like the tropical flavors/ pineapple.
Highly drinkable, mouthfeel is solidly smooth, medium carbonation.
Hop heads need to taste this. I was highly impressed. Best part for me is it's brewed in my county. Finishes pretty dry, but even so, I'd say this is now about my favorite readily available IPA, period. And I hear this is soon to be canned? That's great news if so. It'd be like the closest thing Texas has to a can of Heady.

Fantastic last time I had it but I was told that the whole crew that started it just bailed last week so it might be going downhill. Not sure if this will actually have any effect on the taste but I would try it as soon as possible just to be sure!!!
