Texas, United States | website

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

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.

On the lighter side as double IPAs go. Smooth, slight citrus notes with the hops taking the driver seat. You can tell they put some time and thought into this one. Would drink again and again.
