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

Comes out of the tap a barely translucent honey-amber with a thick buff head. Aroma is SERIOUSLY hoppy with an undertone of grapefruit and a malty hint. Flavor is deeeeeeeeee-lishus! Hoppy, sour citrus and subtle malty notes delight the palate. Mouthfeel is lively and firm, leaving a persistent tingle.

Great IPA. Tasty hops in this one set the tone. Good pour and great lacing.

The pour had a classic IPA look, with a peach colored clear body, two finger thick foamy head with lots of staying power, and gentle streams of natural carbonation streamers. The beer had a strong hop aroma, as I did no even need to bring the glass to my nose to start to smell it. The hops were typical citric type, with grapefruit, mandarin orange, and cut hay being the predominant smells. The taste wasn’t quite as complex as I had thought it was going to be. It was plenty hoppy, but with not much malt backing it up. The result was a bitter and spicy, "California style" hop bomb. Lucky for them, I actually really like the one dimensional assault. I think the freshness of this hometown brew really shines through, as the hops are really green and herbalicious, which is word this beer made me invent. Quite a light mouthfeel, with tingly bubbling of bursting carbonation dancing on my tongue. This is the perfect first sample from a brewery less than two miles from my house. I think I am going to go on tour of their facility just to get this at the source.

Very clean, crisp and refreshing IPA. Not a west coast IPA which is fine as I prefer the east coast IPA. Lighter in body, but full of flavor. Well balanced.

Not sure whether this is a ringing endorsement of this new Georgia beer or yet another advocation for drinking fresh IPA. Loved this beer. Pours slightly dark for an IPA with nice white head. Fresh grapefruit scent. Taste starts bitter and finishes clean and sweet. Well carbonated and light-medium in body. Draft - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA

Bottle. Pours clear golden amber, medium creamy beige head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is citra, tropical passionfruit citrus, pine and a touch of forest floor dankness. Not a strong aroma, but very pleasant. Flavor follows, light sweet and light bitter, pleasant tropical fruity hoppiness. Perhaps just a slight touch of harshness on the finish, but this is a well crafted beer overall. Body is a little light, but otherwise I heartily recommend.

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!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 On draft. Lots of citrusy aromas, with some resin as well. Golden-amber color with a frothy, off-white head. Flavors of grapefruit and pine. Very drinkable. Really nice IPA.

On tap at Taco Mac Cumming. Pours Hazy copper color thin white head. Aroma of citrus and caramel malts. Nice hop bitterness. Loads of citrus hops followed by a nice subtle sweet malt backbone. A very enjoyable IPA!

Westmeister (1699) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft. Pours semi unclear golden orange with big creamy head. Smell is pungent fresh hops of grapefruit, orange and pine. Quite outstanding nose. Taste is quite up there with the nose, but citrus and some tropical fruits dominate with decent sweet malt backing. Assertively bitter but not too much to make this session able enough. Really solid.
