4.36/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

Tasted this one at the brewery on tap. I enjoyed the crew at Jekyll.

A - nice dark amber. Not a big head. Was told they are scientific about carbonation. I lke a beer with nice tight small bubble head.

S - very fruity. This carried over to the taste as we'll.

T - this is an in your face IPA. The most grapefruit tasting IPA to date for me. I think some pine. But the fruitiness stands out. This is one for the georgia summer. There are a couple of different bitter bites. One in the aftertaste that leaves a dry on the edge of the tongue.

M - nice smooth start with a dry finish

O- will buy again. And would recommend

3.9/5  rDev -2%

A: Pours a light golden yellow with one finger soapy white head leaving some fairly heavy lacing.

S: Faint floral hops, but not much else.

T: Big bitter hops punch and some bready malt backbone,

M: Medium body. Finish is mostly bitter hops.

O: Good IPA, but no citrus notes.

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 -1.5%

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
