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. Thats 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 IBUs, and leaves a lingering bitterness; it is, after all, a Double IPA!

mcberko (15404) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma has loads of fruity juicy hops, a generous caramel malt backbone, and resin. Flavour is super pungent with truckloads of piney and resinous hops, and just enough caramel malt backbone to hold things together. Extraordinarily hoppy, with a big puckering blast to the palate, with a medium astringency on the finish. Nice and dry, but also juicy. A most fantastic near-double IPA.

bhensonb (14475) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bomber from Bruisin Ales. Pours clear copper with a creamy/foamy near-beige head. Aroma is mixed floral/grapefruit over a shy caramel backbone. Med body. The hop is definitely mixed. Its strong. The grapefruit rind tends to dominate, but I think theres plain old citrus and some floral. Probably resin, given the impact on the mouth. Wont need embalming after this. Purely preserving ale. Finishes flashily bitter. 108 IBUs! Brilliant.
