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!

650 ml. Pours a lightly hazy amber-golden with a creamy quarter inch of foam. Aroma is crisp citrus zest, resin, earthy caramel and toast. Taste is orange toffee, resin with hints of soap, butterscotch, root vegetable and cardboard. Finish and resulting taste quickly becomes a one note song of hops, but after all this is what they strove for and the craft is evident. Light body is dry and has medium-high, but mostly smooth carbonation.

Bottle shared by dudeabide. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

merc7186 (2083) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The beer pours decently with a hazy orange color that passes through some light, a nice one finger white foamy head, and minimal lacing on the glass. The smell is great with a solid resin, piney scent that lingers, mils citrus. The taste is decent with a piney flavor that just lingers around. The mouthfeel is outstanding as the beer is very well carbonated and it has a very dry mouth. Overall, definitely a hoppy beer that will burn you out but that is what it was suppose to do.

On tap at Finneganís Wake. Classic blend of pine, orange peel, and perfume with plenty of caramel malt backbone. The hops are easily survivable, but they were enjoyable.

Bottle from App Vintner best by Oct 2012 marked - despite the being slightly past the best by date, I quite enjoyed this one. It pours reddish-orange with a tan head, great piney, floralness on the nose. The taste is just bitter enough to be interesting, without being an annoying hop bomb. Overall, very nice!

jackl (4596) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Bomber @ Macís Speedshop, Fayetteville. The pourís medium amber with a pillowy white head. The nose is caramel, orange peel. Toasted bread and mild peppery hops. Caramel-focussed, quite sweet indeed. The taste is caramel malt. Marmalade-slathered toast. Ribbon candy. Strong woody bitterness on the finish. Full body, creamy on the palate. Soft carbonation. Overall, pretty solid.

Bottle. Orange with white head. Aroma is mostly sweet with some hops coming through as well. Taste is malty and sweet. This was good but possibly old? Not as much hops as the name suggests.

Bottle from a friend. Hoppy smell with grape and citrus. Very strong bitterness and long lasting like the Swedish booze "Bšska Droppar". Dry feeling in my mouth. The bitterness took over a bit and overshadows the hops. Besides that nice beer.
