3.64/5  rDev -8.3%
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.

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.

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.

12oz bottle from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 1.69. No discernible bottle date. Served in a goblet.

Pours an opaque golden amber with two fingers of pale head. Maintains a modest layer and laces quite well.

Pretty straight forward nose with pine, grapefruit and floral hop aromas.

A bitter mix of citrus zest, pine and earthy floral hops. Theres some cracker and caramel back there too, letting you know the malts were not forgotten. A dab of pepper, a speck of sugar and just a smidge of booze round things out.

Slick, medium body with perky carbonation. Dry, bitter finish of pine and citrus peel.

I had dismissed this local release for the past 6 months but I'm glad I picked up a bottle to try. Hop Dang Diggity may not bring anything new to the IPA party but it's well brewed, solid stuff.

3.92/5  rDev -1.3%

A: Dark amber with 2-3 cm of thick beige froth that drapes across the glass like a drunk on a bar stool

S: Piney with a hint of fruit

T: Great balance of hops and caramel malt with a twinge of peach, the kind of twinge you get when a firefly lands on your neck. The 6.7% ABV not fully masked.

M: A tad effervescent and generally smooth.

O: Solid. Will buy again, most likely in late summer/early fall
