3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Clear copper with little head. Nose a big citrus burst with a hint of bitterness and pine. Taste follows suit but has a strong sweet malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel with solid carb.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a shiny amber gold with a white head that subsides to a mere ring around the edges.
Aroma: Tangerine and pineapple fruitiness. Equal amounts of sweet, caramel like malt.
Taste: Upfront citrus fruit, a quick yet punctuated hop bite, sweet and toasty malt. Finishes fruity with a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied, average carbonation.
Overall: I’d like to point out that all throughout this single hop series, that Flying Dog has been consistant with the base beer carrying the single hop. Pretty enjoyable and very balanced.

Pint from the Draft House (keg), drank it in the sun watching Murray win Wimbledon. Clear orange, white head and lacing, mid carbonation. Smells of tomato and fried onion, with citrus notes maybe. Taste is grapefruit up front, floral, no trace of the alcohol at all. Resin finish. Not bad.

Really strong citrus character, well-hopped with a sweet finish. Had absolutely no idea this was 10%, very well-disguised for the strength. Lovely IPA.

This is a double ipa? Weak version at best. Decent brew at best, light all around. I was surprised it is 10%abv. Taste more like a pale ale.

(Bottle). Aroma is reminiscent of B.O. Otherwise nice golden complexion with thick white head. Nice piney and grapefruit hops with understated alcohol. Well done.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet pine and citrus. Medium body, flavour of bitter hops and spice, quite bitter and not as sweet as the aroma promised. Bitter end.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is huge citra and other fruity notes, touch of grass. Flavour is medium bitterness with a big fruity citra explosion. Some caramel malt and more citra in the finish. Nice but missing that edge.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Somewhat headless cap on the expected gold color. Stinky Citra, salt air, and hints of yogurt. Excitingly spicy in flavor, very much so - one of the better uses of Citra I’ve had, with an appreciable lack of residual sweetness that the hop often allows to come through.
