4.32/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Light honey color and clarity with a decent white head at first that calms to a thin cap on top

S: Really nice citrus hoppy sweet yum flavor. has an orange flower aroma with a honey malt to back it up

T: A real nice balance of citrus and hops. both are noticeable and wonderful but neither dominate the other. The backbone bulks it up just enough with a creamy chewy mouthfeel to keep me wanting more of the bitter fruit

O: A lovely balanced IPA with the fruit character that makes it a perfect summertime drinker. very enjoyable and one of my favorite I've had from the new brewery (594 characters)

Overall, a solid and balanced IPA. I only got a hint of the citrus, but I would have liked it if that flavor was more present. . (130 characters)

I am not a huge IPA guy but I LOVE this beer!!!!!

Great aroma and the blood orange flavor is just so nice! The batches have varied slightly as they have tweaked the blood orange addition to the brew but all have been awesome. (226 characters)

look: light orange with a foamy off white head that mostly dissipates. Slightly hazy.
smell: Orange and citrusy floral hops. A hint of sweetness.
taste: Much like the nose up front. Not too sweet. Not too dry, not too bitter. Interesting hint of malt in the finish.
overall: interesting and nicely done. (303 characters)

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. (988 characters)
