3.12/5  rDev -22.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12oz can with no clear best by date; into a pub glass.
Appearance- dark honey gold, some evident bubbles that help build a medium thick, foamy white head; great lacing!
Smell- floral hop aroma up front that gives way to a stronger pine and malt as it lingers.
Taste - more malt, less hops; even weaker in the hop profile than most APA’s.
Solid flavor holds up against market leaders.
Feel - a more balanced mouthfeel with the bitterness leveling out during the the session.
Overall - my guess is that considering there is no best by date, this had been sitting on the shelf too long and thus I’m rating an expired beer...too bad, it can’t be that hard to stamp a date.

When bitterness is the name of the game, the Deep Ellum Brewing Company isn't going to back down from the hops. Hitting that brew kettle full boar, the beer that is their self title won't leave you hanging wanting more bite, grit or bitterness.

Medium amber and cast in an expected hop haze, Deep Ellum IPA whips up a frothy eggshell foam stance with a perfumy aura of orange blossom, potpourri and pine. Early sweetness is short lived but does share a broad maltiness of caramel, graham cracker and light jam with the early palate.

Sweetness swiftly lifts from the middle palate as the hops tighten its grip almost immediately. Starting citrusy with a bold taste of mandarin orange, the taste soon develops a taste of cantaloup, mango and apricot before striking the back of the throat with a highly resinous pine sharpness from hops.

Medium bodied throughout, the beer's early textures of mild bread and starch dive into a bone dry finish that exposes the stemmy, weedy and leafy spices from hops for a vegetal astringency that allows the hops to seem greater than seventy on the IBU scale. A long and piney aftertaste lays a thick layer of sappy resins on the tongue that simply do not want to let go.

Small white head with good lacing and nice copper color. Good hop aroma. It starts bitter and finishes bitter. Still easy drinking and a fair aftertaste in spite of the hop bitterness. Overall, this one falls into the more bitter end of the spectrum of IPA’s.

This pours a honeyed amber. Nice foam cap. I get a familiar orange citrus and piney note with a decent resiny bitterness. Easy drinking IPA. Poured from a can.

Had it on tap at Shooters near the American Airline Center. Drinking there because the Dallas Stars were sold out!

Anyway, this is a good IPA with a nice citrus smell and taste. Poured a nice yellow in a shaker pint. It was great with the chicken nachos! Recommended.

This is a very dark IPA. The color is almost amber. The head is off-white with a hint of tan. Nose is heavy of hops and I expected the taste would be too...., but not so much. The taste has a descent amount of hop flavor, but not as much as I wanted. Good beer.

Had a pint a DFW Airport. Nice flavorful smell and taste. Wasn’t expecting that from an IPA. I liked it.
