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!

Hazy copper pour, big frothy head. Aroma of pine needles, soft citrus especially mandarin. Very juicy, medium mouth feel, soft carb. Great, green juicy hop finish, quite bitter and enjoyable.

Leighton (10510) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2014 Bottle at RBWG. Pours clear, rich gold with a fine, white foam head. Lots of rich orange, light pine, mellow pale malt sweetness. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, some good work happening.

12pz bomber poured at RBWG. Pours with a nice lacing. Nice aroma out of the head, body is incredibly bland, nothing too special

On tap at Taco Mac in Charlotte. Good copper color, a little hazy. Really clean, relatively light citrus taste settles well on the palette. Little lacing. Could drink a few of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kinz (3256) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th, last one of the night. Medium amber, decent head. Caramel aroma, some citric grapefruit hops. Flavor matched. Nice, but not the promised result from the label. Surprisingly little "oomph." But not bad.

RG 19. Bottle. Amber with foamy head and light lacing. Smells grapefruity and lightly caramelly. Starts sweet ends bitter. Clean with a light bitter finish- fairly carbonated.

From the bottle poured a clear golden brew with a white head. Malty aroma. Medium bodied with a sweet, malty flavor with a real hop sting.

Bottle thanks to JCB! Amber pour with white head and good lacing. Nose of wet, dank, floral pine, citrus, and caramel candy. Flavor briefly caramel/toasted malt that gives way to an encompassing dry, bitter bite of pine and grapefruit. Bitterness coats and clears the palate of any malt flavor, leaving only body behind. More of that dank feel to the bitterness. Really enjoyed the sharp bitterness to this one and actually very drinkable considering this.

Bomber. Poured into a goblet. Beautiful deep gold color with a little bit of white head. HUGE juicy, citrus aroma. Incredibly fresh hop character on the nose. Taste is sweet, sticky, hop resin with big bursts of gumball and citrus. Great DIPA where the flavor is there with a nice, lower ABV.
