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!

Bittersweet chocolate truffle nose. They claim it’s floral, but I just don’t smell it. Medium-light body. More bittersweet chocolate in the middle with some citrus resins in the back. Leaves a lot of sugar on the lips. Very complex, so much going on. Although it has an alcohol and resin aftertaste, which I usually don’t care for, I keep going back for that crazy bittersweet chocolate.

This beer is an assault on the taste buds. A golden cloudy color, it gives the non hop head, the idea that something’s wrong with it. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a absolutely stellar IPA with every hop that a hop head would desire. The fact that it is somewhat unfiltered is nothing short of brilliant. Thanks Olde Hickory for this collaborative effort.

Bottle from Bombers Beverage Company, Wilmington, North Carolina. Golden with a thin head. Strong tasting with some stewed tropical fruitiness, but without much character, although it gets better in its aftertaste.

Sampled at Olde Hickory Brewery (Amos Howard's Brew Pub), pours a clear orange with some slightly off white head. Nose has pine, grass, soap, some orange, lemon. Flavor has potpourri, lemon, grass, orange zest. Finishes bitter but dry. Could be balanced with a bit more malt, but yet, that's likely the point! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s a hop soup. Vertical flavors and orange with some notes of faint chocolate at the very end. Pretty heavy handed and good.

Pucker up butter cup!! Ya better like it bitter. Zero balance, but I think that's the idea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Six pack left in my fridge. Nice touch. This beer is well done, but just too much for me. More is not always better. Beautiful cloudy orange pour, tight white head. Great legs. Mouthfeel really slick/ oily/ resin. Tons of hops- sort of too bitter and too sweet all at once. Citrus, pine and caramel dominate. 108IBU’s is just not necessary. Do like the Centennial and Simcoe notes though. Nice dry finish. Too much of a good thing happening here.
