Pours hazy orange color perfect, The smell is faintly of orange, citrus no real hop bitterness. The taste is amazing bright citrus, followed by a sour bite on the tongue. Sticks with you and then you get the bitterness on the back end. Mouthfeel is smooth could easily drink the whole growler in 1 sitting... I probably shouldn't but I could.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 9.99. Bottled 3/4/15. Served in a Burnt Hickory snifter.

Pours a brilliant, almost clear orange with a finger and a half white head. Decent retention and a fair bit of snowy lace.

Big mandarin on the nose with citrusy hops, orange peel and cracker. Graduates to full on blood orange after the chills wears off. Quite nice.

Flavors of blood orange, orange peel, bittersweet citrusy hops and marmalade kick things off. The malts make their presence known with some lightly toasted grain and faint caramel. No perceptible booze. The blood orange and hops are absolutely the stars of this show.

Medium body with a little slickness and moderate carbonation. Lingering, bitter aftertaste of blood orange, peel and citrus-forward hops.

After drinking Didjits several times over the past couple years on tap at the brewery and from a growler it is fantastic to see it on stores shelves in bottles. An excellent orange-forward IPA.

On tap.

Pours very murky orange with small head that disappears quickly.

Aroma is muted sour orange.

Taste is livelier and more complex. Nice balanced blend of hops and blood orange.

Very good but not great. I find cannon dragger to be more worthy of Burnt Hickory's exorbitant prices ($9-10 a bomber, $11/32 oz growler)

There are two batches of this beer out, the first batch had more orange than the 2nd and is more murky. Both are very good with the first batch having more orange flavor but the second one showing much more of the IPA character of the beer. My preference is for the second batch and that is what my review is on.

Pours crystal clear with nice heard, hoppy and fruit aroma, very crisp on the palate with a balanced hop bitterness and pronounced orange/citrus. Overall one of my favorite IPAs.

A fantastic based IPA with a ton of real blood orange added to make this thing balance well with the hops. Easily one of the top 5 IPA's in the world.
