Share This Review

DDH Navy Camo is an American Double IPA brewed in the New England style by Civil Society Brewing Co. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.

Appearance

This hazy DIPA pours an opaque yellow gold and is topped by a loose, bubbly cap of white froth that shows modest retention. The reduction leaves behind a collar of suds.

Aroma

The aroma offers a scent of pine needles, tropical fruit juices, and bread.

Flavor

Hoppiness is present throughout the tasting with juicy flavors of citrus and tropical fruit mixed with a bit of pine. Finishes with a mild but lingering bite of grapefruit. Sweet mango is picked up on the swallow. Doughy bread ties the palate together.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is smooth with a light chew. Its body is nearly medium-full with moderate carbonation and finishes dryly with a mild astringency.

Overall

Its appearance is fine and its aroma, while lacking persistence, is pleasant enough. But that palate is downright amazing. It’s well balanced with a nice pop of citrus and juicy sweet tropical fruit. A high ABV is well hidden. The DDH Navy Camo is almost as good as the DDH Digital Camo but is a pretty awesome DIPA on its own.

About the American Double IPA

Also known as an Imperial IPA, the American Double IPA is a stronger and higher hopped version of the American IPA. The style originated in the 1990s when craft breweries wanted to provide a more intense offering to hopheads. The DIPA has more hop bitterness than Strong Ales and Barleywines but has less alcohol.
