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. That’s 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 IBU’s, and leaves a lingering bitterness; it is, after all, a Double IPA!

Clear orange pour with a single finger head. Aroma is sweet and full of caramel. Any freshness to this has been long lost. Medium mouth. Kind of a mess. Sweet, but strange bitterness. Grapefruit is still around, but it tastes off. A little lace. Slight alcohol burn. Bottle was a best by June 0f 2014 and I’m consuming this in October 2014. Bad trade.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is floral hop and citrus. Medium mouth with nice hop bite, juicy, simcoe, and nice lingering bitter finish. Very nice.

Dr_Fellini (899) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with an off-white head. Aroma is fleshy fruit and floral hops with a mild caramel sweetness. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a touch of fleshy fruit hoppy sweetness. Light to medium in body with a lingering bitter and a faint fruity sweetness. Pretty good overall, but not sure how fresh it is.

All these comments below support my theory that this may be the best ipa on the market! Twice the taste as a lot of other ipa’s for half the price! Great one to keep stocked.

Mora2000 (6050) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle with a best by date of August 2014. Drank in mid-July. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is that of older hops (mainly orange and pine). The flavor has some orange notes as well as toffee and biscuit malt. Tastes like an older IPA. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is clear orange with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Grassy, lemon peel, straw, biscuit, husky, and orange peel in the aroma. Taste is orange peel, lemons, bread, light caramel, husk, straw, and lemons with a neodymium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Well-balanced and decently hoppy IPA.
