COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

(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.

NCD (11) - - SEP 7, 2011
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.

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!

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Served on draft at Amos Howards on 4/7/11. Pours a slightly hazy yellow amber color with a thin offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of very bitter hops... earthy, citrus and resiny notes with a good malty balance. Lingering bitterness. Medium bodied.

zizzybalubba (1393) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Bestway in Greensboro. The pour is an as-expected dark orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy and piney hops. Really nice balance in flavor of the piney hops and malt sweetness, more than most. At 7% ABV this just barely classifies as a DIPA but the flavor does lean more toward DIPA than a single IPA with the heavier emphasis in both the hop and malt profile. Nothing mind-blowing here just a really well made DIPA.

Pours gold with a white head. Smells floral with some bitter citrussy undertones. Tastes of sweet citrus, resiny, some breaddy hints, floral with a bitter peppery finish.

22oz - Chill hazed amber, thin creamy white head. Fresh dried pine and white grapefruit zest rides a soft toasted caramel backbone throughout. Bitter hop punch with a rounding touch of malt in the finish. All about the hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Your hop fix will no doubt be...well...fixed...
