Notes: IPA’s are known for their hops, so we thought we’d give it something new. We tapped refreshing pineapple and habanero for the bill. Hops and pineapple mesh together like a fine linen- then just a touch of heat from the habanero for something truly special.

12 oz bottle; apparently very fresh given the August 2016 BB date.

Over-sized, off-white, foamy head over a slightly hazy amber body. The head is durable and leaves a good bit of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: Piney and fruity hops with pineapple bread.

Flavor: Piney hops are not my favorites but the hop load works well in the regular version and even better with the pineapple in this edition. As for the habanero effect, it initially comes across as light pepper and an (otherwise) unexpected light harshness, but the heat builds over time and sips to a reasonable level that doesn't burn but is obvious. Moderate bitterness for style.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass.
A: an aggressive pour yields a frothy white 2 finger foam head, stringy lacing, hazy golden orange body
S: pineapple, citrus, pepper, chili, pine
M: medium body with semi dry finish
T: pineapple, tropical fruit, if you let it sit on your tongue you will taste the habanero pepper, citrus, hop, light piney resin, vegetal from the pepper
O: great brew with a touch of heat, slightly on the sweeter side

12oz bottle from Barrel and Barley (Woodstock, GA). 1.89. Bottled 2/10/16. Served in a Hopslam snifter.

Between a chill haze and perhaps some cloudiness the pour is a hazy golden orange with almost two fingers of white head. Retention amounts to a thin veneer and fluffy crown that imparts some large swaths of lace.

Smells of mild habenero pepper, grapefruit, pineapple, orange rind and some faint crackery malt.

Tastes of citrus peel, mildly juicy pineapple, mandarins, faint pepper flavor and a subtle crackery malt. The adjuncts are faint but certainly complementary, adding an interesting twist to an already solid IPA.

Slick, medium body with moderate carbonation. Citrus, pineapple and a dull, subtle nip of habenero play on the palate in the finish.

Pineapple and habenero add soft complements to Hop Dang Diggity rather than dominant flavors. I wouldn't mind if they were dialed up a bit but this is a tasty and highly drinkable variation of Jekyll's year round IPA.

Had on tap at Twisted Taco. Not what I was expecting at all. Almost no flavor almost as if it were watered down and absolutely no heat (nothing like habanero sculpin). Very disappointed.
