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!

Bomber to oversized snifter. Looks good; a foggy burnt-orange with white lacing. Smells solid; bitter hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

From bottle. Pours a clear golden color with an off white, frothy head. I don’t get much in the way of aroma, however I can pick up a slightly grassy/resin smell. Taste is very hop forward, I don’t get much of the malts but thats how I like them. Very smooth and easy to drink, finishes with a nice hop bitterness.

Golden, white head, muted aroma, sweet with soapy hops. Smooth body. Nothing too impressive here.

unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2012
22oz bottle, world greatest cap. Pale amber color. Tall, rocky, white froth. Long lacing. Hop floral aroma. Spicy hops, loads of resin & citrus oil, and grapefruit. This is what an American Double IPA should smell like! Sweet caramel malts, toasted grain flavor. Whoa, that’s a lot of hops. Death-by-Hops ain’t no joke. Heavy on the bitterness. Deep earthy hop flavor. Finishes with a bitterness similar to biting a grapefruit skin. Resin, citrus, and pine... oh my. (3449)

Strong floral aroma. Citrus flavor that lingers on the tongue for quite some time. This beer would be perfect if it were a bit clearer.

22oz bottle, shared by Jay. Bottle suggests that we enjoy this before November 2012. Thin off-white head. little lace. Clear amber color. Very interesting spicy hop aroma. What is this I’m tasting? Thyme? Basil? Big toasty malts, after the herbacious hops. Big bitter taste, with a spicy bite. Very dry finish, light smooth carbonation. Interesting IPA, I give it credit for having such an unusually herbacious hop profile. But it’s a lot less fruity than the description might suggest, I can’t really get any fruit taste out of it. Just a good, pleasant spice. Reminds me of the Saison Du Buff.

Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. This brew appears hazy and orange with a thin white head. The aroma is hop forward and initially smells enticing. However, lurking behind the hop scents is an odd, vegetal smell. The flavor is just wrong and harsh. Weird, off-putting, sulfur and earth flavors overrun any potential pleasant tastes I was hoping to find. Not a good beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-30-2011
