A: Hop Diggity pours a dark caramel color body with some minor haziness to it. Off-white creamy froth with a light trellising of lace.

S: Nice floral aroma of juicy stone fruit, citrus peel, and some pines. Has a real lemony herb note to it. Some light sugary cereals and a bit of caramel sweetness in the nose.

T: Juicy citrus flavors of tangerine and grapefruit. Honeydew melon and young berry. Nelson’s assert themselves with a hit of white wine grape. There is a bit of exotic florals mixed in there as well. Grainy malts blend with an overall caramel sweetness and give a graham cracker impression of sorts. There is an upper moderate level of bitterness to the beer that is rather smooth. Definitely resinous through the finish. Alcohol really well masked. A little heavier on the caramels than I prefer but still has a nice balance to those great hoppy flavors.

M: Moderate heft to the body with a smooth feel overall. On the watery side with an honest drying in the finish and a long lasting bitterness that tightens up the palate.

D: A delicious DIPA that touts some caramel malt balance to that tropical hop combo. A touch sweeter and I do think the recipe could use a little more scrutinizing but still pretty good. Comes off a little cluttered at times.

Clear dark orange, nearly amber, with a thin off-white head that eventually leaves spots of lace down the glass.

Very hop-forward aroma, with the aroma exploding with grapefruit and pine aromas combining together nicely.There's a bit of sweetness but it doesn't come off as a major component of the beer's nose.

The flavor is moderately bitter, with big notes of grapefruit and orange, along with some sticky pine. The malt profile is a touch sweet, with a hint of caramel.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, though crisp and incredibly drinkable.

Better than Primordial--this stuff is awesome!

American Double IPA
8% ABV

Appearance- Amber with some haziness but not much, Head is small and doesn't retain itself long.

Aroma- Citrus hops, underwhelming a little bit. Maybe some pine behind the citrus

Taste- Citrus and melon definitely. Not much bitterness, a very balanced double. Wish some more hops came through. Maybe a little breadiness from the malts.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodies that lingers for a few seconds. Moderately carbonated as well.

Overall- Will drink again but wont target if other options are available. I think it’s a good DIPA for people who are not big HopHeads.

Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a rich golden amber; we poured two glasses from the 22oz. bomber and the second glass was much cloudier from yeast at the bottom of the bottle. A half finger white head dissipated quickly leaving quite a bit of lacing. Nice aroma of citrus and slightly herbal hops, sweet malt. Flavor was sweet bready malt, orange and tropical fruit, citrus hops, but more muted in intensity than the aroma. The cloudier glass had a richer, more interesting flavor than the clear early pour. Medium bodied. A nice citrus and tropical fruit flavored IPA that was nice malt balance. The hops in the flavor did not deliver the intensity promised by the aroma, but still this IPA had a nice blend of hops and sufficient bitterness. A well made and enjoyable IIPA.
