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!

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

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

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. 108IBUs is just not necessary. Do like the Centennial and Simcoe notes though. Nice dry finish. Too much of a good thing happening here.

Bottle. The look is clear, golden copper in color, with a white head. The smell is hops, fruit, pine, resiney, dank. The taste is good, hops, piney, alcohol, bitter, but good.

12 oz bottle. My first one in five yeats holds up very well to my memory. Huge pine resin and tangerine aroma. Flavors of sweet-then-tart tangerine candy, orange and caramel. Big bitterness, big sweetness, wonderfully sticky. World class.

5 week old IPA : Aroma is very much like Stone Enjoy By with big tropical juicy hops. Taste is similar and very pleasant until the very aggressive bitterness hits you in the face. The bitterness lingers and really overwhelms the excellent hop characters. If the bitterness was less I would give the a much higher score. Worth another try but watch out for the bite! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
