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

3.5/5  rDev -9.6%

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.
