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

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, lasting 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.

Traveling on i-95 yesterday and Pulled off to and stopped at a restaurant for lunch that had about 5 beers on tap and this was one the only things that wasn't a Bud product. Thank God! Never heard of the brewery. Very nice surprise. If I lived in the area I would have that in the fridge for just fun drinking and for drop in friends.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma is all hops. The taste is a crisp piney hop bliss. Overall, an excellent beer.

Actually a pretty good beer. Not terrific but pretty good. The branding is super lame and I feel like a turd drinking a "hop dang diggity". Marketing here would go a long way.
