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.

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.

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 (1761) - 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!

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 (13590) - 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.

8/18/07 On draught at the Dog & Pony, Renton, Wa. Aroma is a grassy, earthy, citrus piney hop blend that has great balance but is just too low. Appearance is light copper with a moderate white head. Flavor is a blend of lightly sweet malt and grassy hops forward followed by strong citrus and a resiny finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, resiny, with a medium carb texture. Overall, very well balanced and with a great hop blend.

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.
