3.64/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance 3.75: Poured out a lovely, coppery gold. No real head, but decent lacing.

Smell 4.0: Great bouquet on this brew. Emphasis is on the piney hops, but there are a few hints of citrus in there as well.

Taste 3.5: Front is dry and slightly bread-like. Middle is flat and also dry. Finish is where a light malt and lots of hops wash in. Like in the smell, the emphasis is on the piney hops: lots of Chinook and maybe some Simcoe. Aftertaste is nice and saves the beer: great balance and very refreshing, "juicy" on the palate.

Mouthfeel 3.5: Good level of conditioning.

Overall 3.5: Good but not great IPA. The bouquet is outstanding, but the brew is far too dry for my tastes, especially the middle taste level. As such, I would recommend it for a try, but it is not a session-worthy IPA in my opinion. (812 characters)

Jekyll Brewing "Hop Dang Diggity"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, no apparent freshness dating

Hop Dang Diggity is a fairly straightforward golden malt/biscuity and citrus hop IPA. It's medium bodied with a moderately crisp carbonation; and the appearance is really quite nice with solid rings of lace left behind on the glass. Pineapple, pine, and peach/apricot/tangerine liven it while the malt base remains solid, unlike so many examples that seem a touch watery with the malt simply acting as a base for the hops rather than a component to be seriously recognized. A solid bitterness acts as its center while the malt and hops combine in a tight ball around it. It finished dry but lively, with bitterness, malt, and fruity hop flavors dancing to a happy song as they make their way along a dirt road beneath oaktrees as the sun sets. Pleasant. Polished. Drinkable. (866 characters)

Bottle, no date. Have also had on tap, with similar impressions.

This is a big IPA that skirts the IPA/DIPA border in terms of body and malt presence, but the overall effect from aroma to finish emphasizes the hops. I was not able to find any info about what hops are used, but they come through nicely and are piney and vegetal. C hops, most likely. This is a very good IPA that surpasses most other commercially available Georgia IPAs. Well worth a try. (456 characters)

Golden body topped by generous white head & great lace. Citrus, pine and grainy malt aromas and taste. Well carbonated and balanced IPA. (136 characters)

On tap.
Excellent looks, with a large, laying foamy head over a clear body.
Piney and fruity hops. Piney hops are not my favorites and that hurts the aroma rating, but the flavor is more appealing. Limited (moderate) bitterness for style. (242 characters)

From the 12 fl.l oz. bottle. A gift from a non-BA trader. Sampled on January 29, 2014.

The pour is a cloudy amber-orange with a lingering off-white or cream colored head. Delicate carbonation.

The aroma is subtle but also hoppy. Earth and pine not floral or perfume-like. Mild toffee or butterscotch malts in the mix.

The body is medium but also a tad astringent.

The taste has a mild caramel/toffee malt character to start and then the out of the ground hops take over the entire character. Good mild to moderate bitterness at the end. Balanced. (550 characters)
