Very disappointed in this one. I have no idea what D.D.H. means but the N.E IPA made me assume this was supposed to be a New England style IPA. This beer was way off that style. DN puts out some solid brews so I don't know what happened with this one. Not recommended

I love supporting a home state brewery, but when they put out an inferior brew, it's disappointing to me. This beer is supposed to be a New England style IPA but the taste and look is far from that. Plus no can date made me totally regret buying this beer. Not recommended

Overall Impression:
I usually don't buy Magic Hat beers ,because to be honest, most of their beers are lame IMO. I've had a few over the years that were OK, but I must say this beer is pretty tasty. I like my DIPA's on the malty side and this one is just that with a nice citrusy hop kick. The price was nice too.
