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!

Perhaps it the "hopped like a pale ale" aspect that really draws me into Dippity, but I’ve had this in bombers and keg, and it is perfect for one or session. Pours deep, dark brown with tan head. Smooth malt sweetness – just the right amount to balance the unusual-for-style hoppiness. Really tasty stuff.

A - Thick dark amber and took a vigorous pour to pull about two fingers of tan head. Good retention and lacing.

S - Very nutty, chocolate, and caramel.

T - Taste like it smells, but with smokiness, coffee, and a lot of chocolate.

M - Medium body with moderate/low carbonation. Slick and in no way sticky.

O - This was good. Very drinkable with nice flavors. I'm not in love with this, though I don't typically drink a lot of brown ales. I found it to be a bit watery.

Another one bought from Craft Beer Cellar in Nashua, NH and poured from a bomber into a standard glass.

A- Mahogany, almost porter-like. This stretches the definition of "brown ale" for sure. Small one-finger head that fades rather quickly but the lacing is great on this one (4)

S- Nice toasted malts, caramel ice cream, nice earthy/floral hops. (4)

T- I get more burnt flavors than sweet, definitely a bitter finish. Toast comes to mind, midnight dark chocolate, some black cherry is in there as well. Rather complex. (4.25)

M- Dry finish, somewhat thin, very brown-ale like. (3.75)

O- Great brew! It doesn't quite match up with Kelsen's Paradigm Brown though. The taste and aroma are great, but it's a beer with a slight identity crisis. What I mean by that is, it's not sure whether to be a porter, a brown ale, or a pale ale but rather a combination of all three. Not necessarily a bad thing mind you, but it has the roasted qualities or a porter on the nose, the toasted/biscuit-like qualities of a brown, and the hops of a pale ale. Good stuff though!

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.
