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!

Sample at Bad Parenting Club (plus a few dirty aunt/uncles?!): NC Beer Edition on 03/28/2015. This brew is a slightly hazy orange-gold color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of fruity hops, roast malt and a bit of pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

ben4321 (5565) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andyís Tasting, 2/28/15

Aroma: It has an alright aroma of slightly stale hops and a little caramel
Appearance: The pour is orange with a small beige head
Flavor: Flavor-wise, again, a little stale from a hop perspective, with a caramel sweetness
Palate: Decent mouthfeel, not super dry from a finish perspective
Overall Impression: Not sure how old this bottle was, but the hops tasted a little stale. Would like to rate this again to see if its the bottle or the beer.

Bottle. Cloudy amber-orange pour with a small foamy head that fades to a messy film. Really nice aroma of wet grass, pine, grapefruit, and flowers. Tastes moderately bitter throughout. Lots of pine and wet grass, some citrus mixes in late. Some light cracker malt as well. Medium body. Nice oily mouthfeel. Great IPA.

1/6/15. 22oz bottle. Lightly hazed orange pour with a decent khaki head and mild lacing. Pungent hop aroma, lots of citrus and pine. Bitter flavor, citrus, pine, caramel, maybe even some chocolate, lots of lingering bitterness. Not bad.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours from tap a bright hazy amber with a medium beige head that recedes slowly. Aroma of a little orange and peach, and a tiny bit of pine, but mostly grapefruit. Flavour of pine resin, grapefruit, earthy and floral hops. The beer left my palate medium bodied and perfect carbonation and a slick, oily mouthfeel that transitions nicely to the dry, bitter finish. Recommend.

Looks like the typical ipa smells great like a good ipa and then that's where the taste sets this beer apart from others. Hops hops hops! This sipper will not disappoint!

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Oranges and other citrus fruit bloom through this IPAís dank and bitter resins for a pleasant show of American breweriana.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam laces around the hazy dull golden.
-Malts are accessory here, which is not surprising.
-The resinous bitterness is lengthy and sticky.
-Hop flavors could be brighter (not more intense though).

On tap at the Olde Hickory Station.
