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!

On tap at Busy Bee in Raleigh. Nice head, light copper color, very slightly hazy, withplenty of aromatic hops and enough malts to balance.

Bomber shared at a recent group tasting. Poured to a sampler with a clear, orange/gold color and modest amounts of off white head foam and lacing. The aroma was perfumey mid-fruit, citrus as orange & grapefruit, with some resin following up. Substantial, smooth malt to balance, some malt sweetness, and strong, lasting hop bitterness rounded out the flavor into the finish. Reminded me of a slightly mellower Tyranena Hop Whore, which is one of my favorite DIPAs.

This pours mostly clear light gold with a tall, sticky, white head. The aroma is all hops, pine and citrus. The flavor is mostly all a light bitterness. A hint of sweetness comes just before the dry finish kicks in but you wonít find it lingering around for long before the bitter finishes.

22oz bottle. a clear orange with almost no head. strong floral aroma from a distance with a sweet piney/pineapple candy note upon further inspection. flavor is not as sweet as the aroma suggest and is incredibly bitter. medium body and somewhat dry. tastes very fresh but not sure of age. best before 2/12. defines the threshold of bitterness i can handle without needing more sweetness.

Bottle from Gabe. Thanks! Citrus hop aromas. Pours yellow with a small white head. A lot going on in the flavor department. Grapefruit, pine, orange and mango flavors. Finishes light with a little bitterness. Overall an outstanding 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.
