Notes/Commercial Description:
Dippity Do is an American-style brown ale that is as fun to drink as it is to say. Hopped like a pale ale, medium-bodied and extremely satisfying, this beer has a beautiful rich brown color with slight caramel and roasty undertones. Dippity Do will pair well with many foods, especially red meat or anything fresh off the grill.

If you are a fan of pale ales, then we are certain that you will become a fan of Dippity Do!

38 IBU

Poured from the keg for my father's 60th birthday party.

Pours dark brown as expected, with an off-white head tinged with brown. Nice lacing throughout.

Smell is mellow yet fresh. Roast and coffee are predominent, with the slightest suggestion of hops in the background.

The flavor is nice and clean. Roasted flavors throughout, with some caramel sweetness make this a sipper or a swigger, good for dessert or session. The flavors are more full when it's a bit on the warm side. Mouthfeel does suffer a bit as it warms as it gets a bit sticky for some reason, but there is a sweet spot temperature wise with this brew where it all comes together superbly.

It seems like Dippity-Do is the signature brew from Throwback, and it fills it's role nicely. This was an excellent choice for a party keg.

22 oz bottle poured into a nonic.
5.7% ABV, 38 IBUs

Thanks for the bottle Rochefort10NH!

A - My pour should have been much slower following the explosive hiss that resounded from the crack of the bottle cap. The half-pint of tan foam hovered above the beer for minutes, caking the pint in some of the thickest lace I've seen.

S - Light roast notes suggesting coffee and cocoa pull through a sharp carbon dioxide sting and finish of citrus American hops. Toffee and toast are interesting undertones to pair with such a hoppy aroma of mango and lemon. Additionally, there seems to be a faint trace of yeastiness.

T - Dippity Do's flavor is a little more harmonious than the aroma, subtly offering roasted notes behind the toast and bread which engages the American hop profile with a little more finesse. More malt driven here, citrus notes and light earthiness finish out.

M - Heavily carbonated, this brown ale has the feel of a macro lager with just a little more body as it finishes with a sharp bite. Dry malt and hops finish balancing with a touch of bitterness to tie it all together.

O - Take an initial first whiff and you're nostrils will be stinging from the CO2 but one it escapes a little more Dippity Do releases a somewhat disjointed nose. An interesting brown that showcases more malt in flavor, this brew finishes light feeling because of such high carbonation.

This beer was a dark brown color. There was a tan head with a bit of lace.

Mostly a caramel malt aroma, but there was a little bit of roasted malt present. Piney hops.

More caramel in the taste. Some coffee. A good deal of piney hops.

This was a nice beer. My only (mild) complaint was that everything seemed front-loaded in this beer. The taste and mouthfeel didn't grow on me.

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a light, muddled, ruby brown color with a thick, chunky, foamy, light tan head that is big bubbled. Aromas are nutty and toffee sweet, with an overall roasting. Flavors are a bit more smoked, with a toffee backbone and some caramel highlights. The aftertaste is roasted and light, leading into a creamy, smooth, slightly lingering finish. Good, rich flavors, and vey easy to drink.
