BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Deep Ellum Brewing Company
Texas, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
2x (Double) Rye IPA

A quantum leap beyond our IPA, with rye, of course.

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!

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.

poured this into an IPA glass and it is a clear amber color with about 2 inch of head. the hoppy aromas are of citrus with slight pine undertones. the taste is what you'd expect from the aromas and you taste the rye. but it is bold and punchy with a tasty, bitter aftertase.. overall i dig this DIPA beer and i consider it a staple in my beer cooler.
