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.

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.

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

Great nose on this very hoppy, slightly bitter American ale

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.
