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.

9/19/2007: Hop Diggidy IPA is orange in color and is cloudy with some particulate floating around in it. It has a big (pillowy), foamy (rocky), off-white head that lasts for a pretty long time. Hops are most evident in the aroma at first. After the beer breathes a bit, come citrus and sugary toffee maltiness become apparent. When the beer first hits the palate, it tastes hoppy like tangerine and citrus-rind and has a heftly bitterness. However, the bitterness then kind of fades away slowly and doesnít cling at all. Then some yeastiness and underlying malt is noticeable in the finish. The flavor didnít exhibit any astringent notes, but this beer just feels like it is higher than the 6.3% ABV that is listed in the production information on this page. Maybe the alcohol just hits faster or something... This beer is medium-light and goes down pretty easily. Overall, this is is a pretty decent IPA.

22 oz bottle from bitbucket. Thanks Bob! Rating #24 for this beer...

Pours golden with a thin/non-existant head. The sediment in the bottle became suspended in the glass. Mandarin hop aroma. Light bodied, refreshing with a zesty bitter finish.

Tasted on tap at the 10th Annual Bistro IPA Festival. This IPA pours a light orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is orange and sweet. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Medium bitterness. Touch of orange and orange peel. Nice balance. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

I canít help it -- I just like dry-hopped IPAs. This may not be an exceptional one, but itís an enjoyable one. What can I do?

Pours a relatively light amber with a small pure-white head and very mild carbonation. The nose is relatively subtle by PacNW dry-hopped IPA standards. Nice floral aromas, cut hay. Mmmm. The flavor is almost subtle by local standards. Rather than a hop blast, I get a mild sweetness from the malts, light-bodied with lots of peppery spice (but not strongly peppers, as in e.g Mac & Jackís IPA). My first sip was the least pleasent of the batch, with the slightly vegetal notes coming through too strongly, it was improving from there. Mouthfeel is light, almost restrained.

Not a bad IPA, and I like the dry-hopping. Certainly the best of the Port Townsend beers that Iíve tasted thus far. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4

Draft at Fiddlerís 12/3/09. Yeah, pretty much what it says above.
Draft at Fiddlers 2/1/10. Nice subtle mango / tropical fruit in the nose, lurking below the herbal dry hopping. Iíd have called this more like 3.6-3.7; Iíll bump upwards.

pours a cloudy amber-orange with thin egg-shell head, good lacing
smells of grapefruit hops, some caramel, some floral, citrus, dandilion.
taste is thick, some grapefruit, some orange, caramel, some pine, malt in the back, nice bitterness that grows as you drink.

Iíve never looked at a beer under a halogen desk lamp but damn, this beer has tiny bubbles and tiny suspended gold flakes - almost looks like suspended tiny bubbles. The beer itself is golden but the gold dust really is unique! Miller would die to have a beer that looks like this! Initial hop aroma was huge and somewhat sweet. Bitterness wasnít what I might expect from Skippy but the finish is totally luscious - sort of like a long lingering embrace after a night with the one you love. A perfect beer to go to bed with.

22oz. Bottle (THANKS glkaiser): Aroma is lightly sweet, with scents of citrus and pine hops. Poured amber in color with a large, rocky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Very good lacing. Sparkling. Tons of particles. Flavor is light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops and citrus. Not much malt flavor. Light to medium body. Watery texture. Average carbonation. Medium duration hop finish with a hint of caramel malts. Overall, a slightly below average IPA.

Very hazy amber...almost the perfect color for an IPA. A lot of yeast settlement at the bottom, along with a few floaties. Hops are very clear here: grapefruit, cedar, and some fresh fruit. Nose is hop-forward, as well. Not an overly bitter beer (if there is such a thing), well balanced, and well done. Yeast is present in the finish, along with a bit of alcohol and dry hops. Very nice!

Gold amber, with a thin white head. Very heavy apricot and peach in the aroma, with a nice dose of hops. Taste is a strong peach accented by hoppiness, light pine, some floral. Solid IPA.
