I picked up this single 12oz brown bottle as part of a build-your-own six pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL, making them $1.67 each. No freshness date. Also of interest, the company website lists the abv at an even 6.0%, not the 5.5% listed here.

The beer poured a hazy honey gold color with 2-finger's worth of white head that lasts a few minutes and leaves some nice lacing.

Wonderful floral hop aroma with a touch of pine and citrus fruit underneath.

Wow, this is really good. Sweet malty backbone with a honey and almost buttery taste, balanced with mild piny and citrusy hops.

Smooth, creamy, medium bodied with higher than average carbonation, which keeps it nice and crisp.

Not a hop bomb, but a really tasty American Pale Ale. I loved it.

Hopdinger pours a dark golden color, with a very small lacing head. There is a earthy and slightly hoppy aroma. The taste has a nice hop bite to it, lots of earthy like flavors, and a subtle roasted taste. Full flavors, nicely carbonated. Overall a nice solid APA, not has hoppy or floral, but does have a subtle roasted flavor that is a bit of a change up.
