Winner of the First Olde Hickory Pro Am competition. Very limited production. Our brew master says: 71lbs of high alpha hops were used to make this limited production beer of only 13 barrels. Thatís just over 20 grams of hops used for each pint! DBH was brewed with 2 row barley, Carapils and Crisp Crystal 45 malts and fermented to 7% alc/vol. DBH was hopped with 5 different West Coast hops: Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade. Additionally, DBH was twice dry hopped with different combinations of these hops. The net result is an amazing aroma of ripe juicy fruit mixed in with a bouquet of spring flowers. DBH was brewed to a level of bitterness of 108 IBUís, and leaves a lingering bitterness; it is, after all, a Double IPA!

Draft at the brewpub. My friend says this what a hippie would taste like if you licked one. Ha! Quite earthy, almost peppery. Kick in the hopper for sure! (#4279, 10/4/2011)

Straight from the kegerator and rerated via bomber. This is what an IPA should be. Tons of sweet, juicy hops that are perfectly balanced by a clean malt base. When fresh, this is one of the best beers Iíve ever had. Itíll be on tap at my house as often as possible.

(22oz bomber best by July 2011 thanks to blutt59) clear medium yellow, creamy white head with nice lacing. Nose of orange, funky, caramel and cracker. Taste of onion, candied citrus, sweaty, umami. The linger is bitter and oniony. Even a bit dank. Not my favorite.

Pours a bright hazy amber with a medium beige head that recedes slowly and leaves a clump of foam in the middle and very little lacing. The aroma is fantastic with tons of juicy citrus and slightly resinous floral hops. Lots of pineapple, oranges and mango with pine as a complement. Biscuity malts are present but the hops are the star. The taste is just as good and starts with a scathingly bitter pithy citrus kick. Really just fills the mouth with oranges, grapefruits and pine. The bready malts are there to support the hops which leaves a big olí bitter finish.

A hazed orange amber ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice fruity pungeant hops, resinous, earthy and lightly funky. In mouth, a nice biscuitty malt with fragrant hops, well balanced and pleasant, grapefruit notes, piney, quite nice. On tap at Foothills Brewing Company, August 13 2011.

Bomber from TJís, Carrboro. Címon NC, letís get some more IPAs and DIPAs going! This one was very nice indeed, with a character that was predominantly floral but with an understated and nicely dry presence throughout (hints of tea) that doesnít interfere with the fruits and (comparably modest) resin. Thick mouthfeel is a delight, and emphasizes the creamsicle taste that often comes through. Well done!
