DDH 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 16 oz. can.
The DIPA pours an opaque yellow ochre and is topped by a thick cap of rocky off-white foam that shows good retention. Small patches of sticky lace clutch the sides as the head reduces.
The aroma wafts a scent of lemon and ripe stone fruit but the lemon fades shortly after the pour.
The palate begins with a taste of doughy bread that gradually sharpens with a mild citrus bite of lemon peel and grapefruit. Some resin also appears as the beer warms. Tangy orange and sweet peaches round out the finish.
Its feel is smooth with a dry finish. The body is a shade over medium with moderate carbonation. Astringency is mild.
Its appearance is lovely and the feel is spot on. The aroma isn’t particularly strong but is pleasant. And the palate is absolutely delightful with its balanced blend of juicy citrus and sweet stone fruit. Like the other Camo brews — DDH Digital Camo and DDH Navy Camo — from Civil Society, the DDH Camo is a superb New England-style Double IPA.
