COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American IPA bursting with citrus aromas and flavors. You’ll find evidence of tangerine, grapefruit, orange and mango in the aroma from the multiple additions of a single hop variety, Citra. There is also a nice malt balance in this bitter, full bodied, doglicious IPA that is a citrus lovers delight.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Pours a clear light amber with a massive head and lacing that retains very well. The nose is a blend of tropical citrus notes and grapefruit over a toasted malt background sweetness. Almost medium bodied with a slick texture approaching creamy. Slightly above average carbonation level with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is a well balanced blend of citra hop flavor and bitterness over an underlying toasted malt sweetness. It begins with the citrus flavors, progresses to a citrus and grapefruit rind bitterness that is mellowed by a toasted sweetness. Quite nice. Nice smooth finish that leads as slightly sweet then flows into a nice citrus bitterness that lingers just the right amount along with a bit of tartness. This dog can hunt.

Poured from bottle. A cloudy tannish orange. Aroma of weeds and lemon. Upfront is somewhat citrus with a very dry middle. Back end is bitter grapefruit. Wish they would bottle date because this fresh is redonkulous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle poured a bright golden color with a thin cap of white head that fell back to a ring. Aroma has solid hops, citrus, some tropics, and sweet malts. Mouth feel is average and there is good carbonation. Flavor again centers on the citra hops, perfume, citrus, grapefruit bitterness, and a dry finish.

chinchill (2989) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours hazy amber, with a modest off-white head. Aroma: a load of Citra hops yet some bready malts are also apparent. Flavor: Follows aroma: fruity and herbal, with a substantial hop hit starting towards the finish. Despite a moment of rather high bitterness, this diminishes nicely in the aftertaste. O: Citra Dog indeed.
