Last weekend I traveled to Dallas to cheer on my LSU Tiger football team as they took on the TCU Horned Frogs in the palace that is Cowboys Stadium. Of course I took the opportunity to bring some local beer home with me.
Deep Ellum is probably the biggest Dallas brewery. They can all of their off premise offerings, and I took a six pack of their IPA home. This one pours a beautiful copper color with a nice citrusy aroma. They call it an “ode to the Pacific Northwest hop.” It lives up quite nicely to that billing. This one strikes a nice balance between hop flavor and bitterness with a malt backbone that holds up to the hops.
I’m really enjoying the Deep Ellum IPA, and should you find yourself in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, you should too.
This one gets 4 out of 5 bottle caps (or pull tabs in this case).
