22oz bomber received in a trade with a buddy.

Appearance: Pours an attractive and fairly transparent dirty orange to copper with a 1 finger white crown that displays good retention and lace.

Smell: A nice bouquet of candied orange, grapefruit, and a dominant floral hop note. Some underlying onion and cut grass notes are present.

Taste: The same ingredients as the nose but more vibrant and enjoyable. Finishes with a nice lasting herbal hop bitterness. Flawed but enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: A touch thin but not off putting in any way.

Drinkability: Exceptional.

This brew has flaws but I still enjoyed it.

4.1/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a clear goldenrod color witha small frothy off-white head that dissipates very quickly. Minimal lacing is left behind, as well as an extremely thin patch film and rocky collar.

S: The smell is a little subdued, considering the beer's name. There is definitely a presence of citrusy hops ... grapefruit, tangerine, and a touch of lemon ... as well as bit of piney resin. The usual suspects are there, but it's a little toned down in my opinion.

T: The flavor is a lot stronger and more complex than the smell suggests it would be. Loads of citrusy fruits immediately that mimic the fruit noticed in the smell. If you let it sit on your tongue, the fruit is really all that is noticeable; as soon as you swallow it, however, the hop bomb explodes and it becomes really quite bitter. If there was a tongue bruiser of an IPA, this would be it ... hoppy, bitter, and very dry at this finish.

M: Medium bodied and highly carbonated; a little too high for my taste. It's extremely lively, bubbly, and prickly. Although I think it's overly carbonated, it might actually be very appropriate for this beer. You feel it in your mouth immediately and it leaves an impression between sips.

D: This is really tasty, but it's a little difficult to drink due to the huge hop-bomb characteristics. Bitter, dry, prickly. Maybe it's just a bit too much for me. I really enjoyed this one, but it took a while to finish this bottle off.

Thanks to cbros for this. I have been wanting this for a little while.
Best by date is July 2011. Drank on April 9th. shared with hopsbreath

A- Cloudy, straw colored. Nice white head that dissipates. Lots of lacing.

Smell - Very good grapefruit hop aroma. Some malt sweetness to it as well.

Taste - Big hop bitterness right up front. Some sweetness in the middle. It finishes with more bitterness. The alcohol seems to come out more as it warms.

Mouthfeel - A little thick for an IPA. Good none the less.

Overall - Good IPA. Very bitter. Gets sweet as it warms. Seems to get even more bitter as time goes by.

On tap at rockfish seafood grill in Durham. A warm up for BA Siberian night!

Dark cloudy straw color with minimal head.

Smells like shitload of hops (extract and dry). Piney hops to be specific. Malt smells sweet.

Now this is how to use hops! Enough hops to be the leading flavor, yet aroma hops keep things in check. malt feels syrupy, light, and slightly sweet.

Hops really dominate the aftertaste. I like it. Malt kind of balances things out.

One hell of an IIPA!!

Old Hickory Brewery Death By Hops India Pale Ale, Brewed and Bottled by Olde Hickory Brewing, Hickory, North Carolina. 7% ABV.

Light haze. Golden hue, large white, lasting head.

Bracing bitterness hits the nose, waves of pine and citrus wash over, hit after hit of hoppy goodness. Nice.

Tastin' it: Bittersweet and resiny. Juicy, hoppy, and yum. Hopped up and ready to go. Medium body and mouthfeel, leaves plenty of room for hops to do their dance. Plenty of lemon, lime, spots of pepper. Stays just short of astringent. Well, it gets a little in their, in the back of the throat.

Easy drinker, for the hopheads among us (raises hand). Top notch IPA all the way. Hey, what does the label say?

"Death by Hops double IPA is the winner of Olde Hickory's first Pro-Am event. This beer was designed by Alex Buerekholtz, award winning homebrewer & proprietor of Hops and Vines, Asheville, NC. DbH is brewed with 3 row barley, hopped with 5 different West Coast ops, then twice dry hopped. The net results an amazing aroma of ripe juicy fruit mixed with a bouquet of spring flowers. Death by Hops makes an impact you won't forget! Cheers!"

That sounds about right. But I wouldn't have picked it as a double IPA. Most go above 7%, and with a name like this, you'd expect a bit of punishment. This one is mighty hoppy, but doesn't push it too far, doesn't take it over the edge. Nothing wrong with that.

Bottle from Justin! Pours bright golden copper with minimal head and little lacing. Nose is just spectacular with big dank and floral notes. Piney and resinous which hits the palate, and then a melon fruit takes over. Ends resinous and bitter.

Very nice and glad to get to try this one.

bomber from Bruisin'

a: poured into a wide chalice, dbh is medium golden-amber in color, coated with a thin layer of carbonation and light retention

s: big tropical hop presence on the nose - grapefruit and mango, tangerine, pineapple - a veritable fruit punch - especially after warming a bit, lots of oily citrus rind, clean pale malts allow the cones to shine, very pungent - great start

m: carbonation around moderate, a little lively, with a body tending towards the lighter side of medium with a little weight

t: big acidic hops over a clean pale malt body, an upfront bitterness totally dominating the slight sugars, the hop flavors here are citrusy - but mostly the bitter rind and pulp rather than juicy, floral oils; greapefruit rind, the clean malt body and powerful bitterness keep my thirst moving, a bruising bitterness lingers deep into the finish

o: I tend to like a little more juice vs bitter pith and rind, but this is a great IPA - lots of aggressive hop character, good fruits, and a monster bitterness, none of the heavy caramel and grain sugar that hinders the drinkability of many dipas/ipas, absolutely no balance - but sometimes, that's what it's all about

22 oz bottle. Best by Apr 2012, so I'm guessing it will be brewed a few months from now. Thanks to Chris for this little treat.

Appearance: Clear orange, off white head with great retention, excellent lacing in thick sticky sheets.

Smell: Sharp citrus and sweeter tropical fruits. Some florals and a little touch of earth. Slight hint of pale malt sweetness.

Taste: This has a great sharp hoppy bite. Nice fruity hops flavors and pithy grapefruit bitterness. A bit of spicy hops flavor too. Hint of caramel malt. Towards the end of the bottle, the high level of bitterness wears on me a bit, but overall its very good.

Mouthfeel: Very well done. Just the perfect level of carbonation, smooth and bubbly, but not harsh. Incredible resiny stickiness.

Overall: This is an IPA hopped like a DIPA. Its a beast. Just a touch too high on the bitterness, but hey, its called Death By Hops.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Death By Hops pours a lighter caramel brown color. It’s slightly hazy. Looks like an orange stained gold color when held to light. Looks good. It’s topped with an off-white head that stands nearly two fingers tall. It’s very slow to recede. Holds steady as a surface covering for quite a while. Lacing was very sticky and thick. Quite impressive.

The nose is good. It could use just a little more strength, but it’s still good. The malt base seems reserved. I like that. There’s a hint of sweet caramel. Not much. Perhaps a bit of bready scent. That’s about it. Hops smell lively and delicious! Grapefruit and orange scents are easily noted. There’s perhaps a touch of pine that follows. Alcohol is blended well and doesn’t come through all that strong. I’m surprised it’s characterized as a DIPA. I digress. Smells good.

The flavor is a little better than the nose, but not quite enough to warrant a score bump. The malt base tastes like a mix of caramel and bread flavors. The caramel flavor is light and restrained. It adds a touch of sweetness, but it’s not overly strong. The hop flavor is really nice. It’s mostly citrus grapefruit and orange. It definitely has a bitter kick, but it’s not palate wrecking. The hops definitely take center stage and are the focal point here. Alcohol is there, but isn’t anywhere close to warm or hot. Finishes hoppy and bitter.

The body is medium. Carbonation seems light and restrained. It’s relatively smooth and easy drinking. I probably won’t finish off the growler, but it’s tempting. It is quite good.

Death By Hops is a nice release from Olde Hickory Brewery. The hops hog the spotlight and really amp up the flavor. That’s my style for an American IPA. This one’s definitely worth picking up. I’m still not sure about the DIPA classification on here. That’s a bit peculiar, but…whatever.

Smell (4.50) - super fresh. Huge floral notes. Sharp smell of hops. I can almost taste the bitterness.

Appearance (4.25) - golden brown and slightly hazy. Creamy white head. Not much carbonation going on. Fantastic lacing.

Taste (3.75) - as the names hints, lots of hops. It's quite bitter but not as off he charts as something like hopstoopid. Floral notes are a definite. Bright overall character. Some slight caramels going on.

Mouthfeel (4.25) - crisp. Exactly how I would want this kind of beer. Good levels of carbonation. Abv is hidden pretty well but comes out in the finish.

Overall (4.25) - great beer that will definitely satisfy any hop heads out there. I think it lacks in the taste department but chances are that's just because of the overwhelming bitterness.

Thanks to cmrillo and Hodgin for this one! 22oz brown glass pry-top bottle. Best By July 2011.

Pours a hazy golden orange amber. Some thin white head.

Nose is all about pale caramel and super extracted hop resin. Orange oil and lemon too.

Palate is juicy and dripping with hops. Lots of candied citrus and, cannabis, and something a little like seaweed.

Great example of the new East Coast IIPA. Reminds me a lot of the Vermont IPA style. Well done.

Pours a clear golden/orange into a tulip. Slight white head goes away relatively quickly. Nice lacing and sense od carbonation. Looks the part of a good west coast IPA.

Smell is not overpowering but still there. Citrus and juicy hops all the way. Not overly floral but still pleasant.

A nice hop bite upfront in the taste, gives way to pleasant (but not overtly strong) citrus and a nice , non-astringent, bitter finish. No particular sweetness to note. Alcohol is pretty muted for me.

Mouthfeel is very crisp, which is generally speaking what I like in my IPA's. For as hoppy as it is, it doesn't feel particularly sticky or resiny. Feels about as "full" as it should given the abv and style.

West coast IPAs have become one of my favorite styles over the years, and reviewing this as that style of IPA, it doesn't quite belong in the upper tier (just outstanding, pliny the elder, anything by alpine) but it is still very good, and for the state of NC it's about as good as its get for hop forward ipa. If this were regularly available on draft, i would seek it out.... same deal if it were available in 6 packs. For the time being I can only get it in bombers, and for me its just not quite good enough to justify constant purchases at that price point. But by all means if you are a big IPA fan give this one a chance.

Poured into a pint glass on special at Duckworths. It had more of an XPA color to it than a typical IPA. The smell is all hops! It really is death by hops. The taste follows smell. It is a little biscuity for my personal taste. There is little mouthfeel to speak of. Probably it's greatest deficiency. Overall, I liked this representation. Not afraid of being a hoppy beer.

Got this in an in person trade with cwguy5, thanks Will!

A: Pours with almost no head, looks like some ugly soapy bubbles. A hazy burnt orange brown color.

S: HOPS! Definitely a mix of fruity and piney hops in the nose, smells great.

T: Lots of hops in the taste, malt is very hidden which I like a lot. I am definitely Centennial and Cascade hops in this, very strong hop taste. A pretty bittering beer too.

M: Leaves some bitterness on the tongue, pretty bitter beer overall.

O: This is a good hoppy beer, wish I had access to this. Definitely a very hoppy easy drinking IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a lightly hazy deep copper in color with some orange highlights and some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy off-white head that slowly reduces to a couple of medium sized thick patches of large bubbles, a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of bready malts with a touch of caramel sweetness followed by strong aromas of citrus/grapefruit hops and just a touch of pine hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of bready malts with some slightly stronger flavors of caramel sweetness. Then the hop flavors really come out - strong flavors of citrus/grapefruit with just a hint of pine. Moderate amounts of bitterness in the finish which lingers but not for too long.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Definitely one of the better DIPAs I have had from NC - a really nice smell with lots of grapefruit citrus and not a bitter bomb which I appreciate - love the taste of the hops but I don't want a beer so bitter it is not enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink and the alcohol is well hidden.

Enjoyed a couple of samples of this at Brewgrass. Glad to run into it again in a reviewable setting. On tap in a shaker pint. Light golden amber body with plenty of sticky lacing from the off-white head.

In spite of the crappy glassware, a huge hoppy burst of aromas greet the nose. I am left to imagine how great this would smell in a tulip or snifter. Scorchingly bitter with a ton of hoppy flavors. Pungent and potent, plentiful pine and grapefruit. Some earthiness and a somewhat gritty feel. This is a beer that would fit in well in the PNW or the west coast. A touch on the thick side, but sweetness is kept in check. I'd love to see them make this again.

Overall impression: A solid choice for hopheads. Those with tamer palates should take a pass on this one. For an east coast DIPA, fairly monstrous. Definitely worth checking out.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance- Golden, nice head, decent lacing
Aroma - sweet and hoppy
taste - fruit and citrus
hops up front, minimal malt backbone to provide balance and a finish that is oily and piney. As you can tell by my description this beer is much more complex than it smells or tastes upfront.
Mouthfeel - If there is a weakness to this brew - it is the mouthfeel. The mouthfell is a bit thin but to be fair I like the stereotypical chewy mouthfeel of a most DIPAs that have higher abv's.
Drinkability is very, very good.
Very Good NC product!
Had on tap at Duckworths on 7/14/11 and it was the best, freshest Death By Hops I have ever had.

Really a surprise to be honest, this is one very good IPA brewed right here in Nc, and the best one I've had from in state yet. Similar IMO to something like Smutty, more earthy abd resiny thn fruity. Really drinkable at 7% which kinda surprises me that they call it a DIPA, it doesn't drink like one in any way shape or form. Well worth a try and any IPA lover will love this one, there's nothing not to like. And it's NOT expensive. If you like IPA's like Smutty and Hop Devil this one kinda fits right in.

A big thanks goes out to mikesgroove for throwing in this extra in our recent trade. A hazy orange color this beer is, with a finger of white heading. Spicy hops come to mind first with the aroma, followed by fruit: peaches and pineapple especially. The hop flavor is very prominent in the beginning of the taste. They start off very spicy, and then become more fruity as it settles. The alcohol can definitely be detected, but it isn't a deterrent. I would have guessed the ABV was higher than 7%. At the same time I really like that they placed this right on the border between regular and imperial IPA. This beer definitely gets the point across as far as hops and flavor. I very much look forward to trying more beers from Olde Hickory.

Label stated best by Feb 12.

Golden with good clarity and a small white head. Some lacing. Aroma was mostly grassy with citrus and floral contributions as well. Flavor was citrusy and grassy hop flavors with a nice lingering bitterness. It was not quite as good as I remembered when I first tried it on tap a year or so ago in Charlotte but it grew on me over the course of the glass. Mouthfeel was silky, maybe even oily, with a low to moderate carbonation.

A nice exercise in hops.

Best before date of 2/12
Pours a nice hazy caramel color with a foamy/bubbly 2cm eggshell colored head with pretty good retention and lacing.

Nice floral and fruity hop notes up front on the nose with some sweet citrus, candy sugar and light caramel.

Flavor is good and pretty well balanced. It's pretty malt forward actually with a pretty nice but not strong floral hop character. It finishes a little bitter hops. The flavor and hop character just doesn't stand up to the name.

Mouthfeel is smooth, a little oily and creamy with medium carbonation.

It's a pretty good IPA but just doesn't stand up to CA ipas or it's name for that matter. It's very drinkable and might have a ton of hops in it, but lacks great distinguishing hop notes and flavors.

22oz into a Russian River tulip.

Marmalade orange with some haze on the pour with a nice one finger head. Some lacing as it is drank down.

Orange zest and grapefruit begin the aroma and then move into a nice pale malt breadyness.

Again, orange zest with graepfruit then pale malt. Does not deviate from the smell much at all.

Medium body, and soft carbonation.

Reminded me a lot of Two Hearted. In fact, if I were to do a Pepsi challenge between the two, I would probably have a hard time discerning the two.

Huge thanks to mullenpc for this great extra. Cheers! Drink before April 2012 (which reading from the below review means this was just bottle a few weeks ago).

Appearance – Hazy orange color with slight tan head that lingers around for a while leaving chunky lacing.

Smell – Hops, pine, resin, bitter grapefruit, slight malty backbone.

Taste – Bitter piney and floral hop flavors, grapefruit and orange rind, a hint of sweet pale malt backbone.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, decent carbonation, slightly oily.

Overall – Not a bad DIPA. Relatively bitter and a pretty good attempt at, in my opinion, a take on a West coast DIPA. Could have a bit more citrus though...the bitter hops and fruit rinds is a bit much when it’s all said and done.

Good friend brought a bottle of Olde Hickory Death By Hops here to Chicago with him from NC. The beer pours a clear orange copper with finger thick slightly off-white head that is lacing. The smell is definitely hopslight pine and citrus notes. The taste is an explosion of hop flavors all mixed into one. There is bitter citrus, pine, and floral notes...almost too much going on. The bottle says five west coast hops...hence "death By Hops"....and they aint lying!!! The mouthfeel is a medium to full body with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer....but one per session is probably enough.
