COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Hop Dang Diggity Southern IPA will give you a full nose of Georgia pine aroma while the malty backbone provides for a perfectly balanced sweetness. Hopped up like a one legged chicken, this is not your standard “economical” IPA.

It is entirely likely that you may choose to not drink this IPA, but only breathe in it’s wonderful aromas... snap out of it and take a sip. Not too dry, but having just the right amount of sweetness to balance the bitter, then finishing with a refreshing clean that begs for the next taste. This hoppy style pairs well with any of your favorite spicy foods. 16° SRM 8.1 L

12 oz. bottle courtesy of dunn4040. Pours a hazy golden amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma that is dominated by grapefruit but with notes of tangerine and pine present as well. The flavor begins with malt and is washed over by grapefruit and tropical fruit hops bitterness. A combination of fruit and pith. Leans towards the lighter side of medium bodied. Enjoyable.

Slightly cloudy orange pour with a large, frothy white head. Aroma is primarily citrus with a bit of sweetness. Flavor has a lot of orange peel and grapefruit, even some apricot. Nice resinous, hoppy finish. Pretty big flavor, I likeit.

Had draft from my local Taco Mac. Orange hue with a slight off white head.Aroma of pine and grapefruit, with maybe a little apricott. Pine and citrus hoppy taste that blends out to a small bit of malty sweetness. Aftertaste is more pine hoppy goodness. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp. The hoppiness will creep up on you the more you drink this, and it will start to feel like an imperial by the end of the glass. 74 IBU’s according to Jekyll’s website, so it is on the higher side of a normal IPA, but slightly below most imperial. Overall a great beer from a newer brewery, and a welcome addition to the southeast beer scene!

This is my first beer from Jekyll Brewing, a new craft beer brewer that started rather recently here in GA. Pours a pale honey orange with a thin white head. Aroma is big notes of pine resin, tangerine, and grapefruit. A nice clean fruity IPA scent. Flavor is also very citrusy with dominating flavors of fresh grapefruit throughout. The hoppy characteristics sit in the background, letting the citrus flavors really take center stage. Moderate sweetness keep it balanced. The Georgia beer scene is full of rather dull IPAs, and I kind of figured this would be just another one of those. It surprised me though. This is probably the best non-imperial IPA I’ve had from the state. Very solid beer. Looking forward to seeing what else the people down at Jekyll put out over the coming years. Edit: Turns out this was my 100th beer rating. Go me!

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and very lightly resinous hops, plus a lot of caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best IPA.
