COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic Northwest style IPA. Hop Diggidy has a smooth malt background and full round hop flavors. Dry hopping two separate times in the process insures an aromatic and lasting hop finish. Enjoy this very drinkable Northwest ale.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Cloudy orange, thin beige head. Very piney, woodsy aroma. It’s a little on the thin side, which I actually like sometimes in a IPA. Hops completely overwhelm any malt characteristics, so it comes across as very bitter, very dry, almost astringent.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Hazy orange color. Thin lasting head. Chunks of yeast and stuff. Aroma is and citrusy with some biscuity notes. Some grapefruit rind, lemon, mint, and straight funk. A hop forward beer. Not alot of malt. Very resiny and dry. A west coast styled IPA. There is a little bit of astringence here, and it is almost uncarbonated. Decent.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Bottle, cloudy particle-y golden with a high white head. Lemony/citrusy hop nose. Pale malt, lemon, grapefruit and resinous bitterness. A little pine and some vague fruitiness too. Didn’t pick up any caramel notes. Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation. I couldn’t quite get into this one.

(11/3/07, 22oz bottle, thanks artusory) Medium off-white head atop cloudy apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, some orange, pine, light apricot. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit/grassy, light apricot. Quite bitter. Medium body, light resin.

Ibrew2or3 (7077) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Bomber pours clear copper with thin off white head. I smell a quick pulse of grapefruit hops before a mixture of buttered bread, caramel, toasty malts and ginger bread cookies join the aromatic fun. The taste starts both malty and bitter. I get roasted malts, toffee, bread, a hint of caramel along with grapefruit hop and some pine hop bitterness. The hop bitterness grows as the taste progresses and it becomes a bit watery too. Toward the finish roasty and caramelized maltiness try and compete with the hops but come up short in the end. This is a fairly malty IPA with nice interest and lingering grapefruit hop bitterness into the after taste.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2007
Sharp pine hops in a nose otherwise dominated by yeast acetalhyde, giving it one of the most intense green apple aromas I’ve ever experienced. Thankfully you can actually taste some of the nice mandarin orange hop flavors along with the green apple and piney hop oil presence. On the palate it’s sharp and dry, with tart green apple (jolly rancher) and kiwi notes finishing it up.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
22oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a cloudy, dirty yellow color; white head with patchy fine-bubbled lacing. Tons of grapefruit and apricot and citrus in the aroma; dense, resiny and fruity hops. Zesty, grapefruit and grassy hops in a medium mouthfeel: lots of apricot and green apple and tropical fruits at the core; very interesting hop character; clean and reasonably pleasant. Ryan mentioned green apple, which is definitely there throughout. Medium, sugar and tropical fruit in the finish.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Poured from a 22oz. Murky golden yellow pour. Aroma of pure citrus and tropical sunshine in pineapple, mango, and orange; cotton candy and mounds of powder fruit sugar with a green apple flavoring. Tastes of soft floral tones, peach and pear skins, being similar altogether to the fruits present in the aroma but emphasizing their more forward bitter characteristics. Slipping into imbalance slowly and getting sharper with sugary bite, as the insufficiency of malt increasingly steadies its glare. Thin and extremely crisp in the mouth. Finishes with a crunch of apple sugar. Tasty, but certainly flawed. Thanks for sharing, Ryan!

Carl (11) - Issaquah, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle. Clear and golden in color. No head to speak of. Nice earhy aroma. Smelled of resin. The sweetness of the malt quickly fades to bitter. This beer was a little too flat for my taste, but still a decent IPA.

Tmoney99 (11063) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Bottle from shigadeyo shared at the Party Source. Poured a hazy copper color with an large frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate hoppy citrus and pine aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium hoppy bitter flavor with a smooth hoppy citrus bittersweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.
