Olde Hickory: Death By Hops 7% [350ml]
They say “Winner of the first Olde Hickory ProAm! Alex Buerckholtz, owner of Hops & Vines in Asheville, NC, was the winner of the First Olde Hickory Pro Am competition with this very fine beer. using 71lbs of high alpha hops to make this beer. 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!"
We say “This has an assertive bitter pine hop flavour against a back bone of biscuit malts and a slight chewy caramel flavour. If you like your beers bitter and resinous you will enjoy Death By Hops which has been brought to the U.K. via our ColdChain Programme.”
