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!

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.

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.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral, citrusy, and resinous hops plus caramel and pale malts and a little dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Average texture. A pretty good IPA, but a little too bitter and not the best blend of hops.

22 ounce bottle
A very nice East Coast IPA straddles the line between IPA and Imperial IPA. Either way you call it the result is a well balanced hop bomb that is gone before you know it. I will definitely have to keep Olde Hickory in mind if I am ever in the area traveling.

Aroma / Appearance - A creamy opaque foundation simmers in the glass. Ivory head adds to the relaxing warm presence. Lemons, orange zest, resin, and more are like a hoppy custard in a glass.

Flavor / Palate - A bright bite of resin brushes away thirst immediately. Floor wax sweeps into a strong bitterness that refrains from being completely over the top. Full boded and warm it is the definition of an East Coast IPA. Raise your expectations if you are just expecting yet another local ho-hum effort.

On tap at Olde Hickory. Pours a golden color with white head. Grassy, citrus, hoppy, piney aromas. Citrus, hoppy, piney flavors. Pretty nice ipa, better than the other ipas at Olde Hickory.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a hazy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Sticky, piney hops. Fair amount of grapefruit in the aroma. Kind of goopy mouth feel. Dank hops. Quite sticky. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Wish it didn’t have quite as much malt presence but still pretty good.
