Death By Hops

old_hickory_death_by_hops

Death By Hops is a double IPA from Olde Hickory Brewery, the same folks who produced the excellent Table Rock Pale Ale I reviewed earlier.  True to it’s name, Death By Hops is overpoweringly hoppy.  It’s not a particularly big beer for a double IPA at 7% ABV, but it certainly has as much bitter hop flavor as any beer I’ve tasted.  Despite my love for the IPA, this is not one of my favorites, and it simply feels a little one dimensional to me, and I really think it’s gone overboard on that dimension.

I give it a 2.75 out of 5.
