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.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2013
12 oz bottle from six-pack, Andersons, Columbus, OH. Hazy gold-orange, creamy white head, strong lacing. Aroma is a dead giveaway for the citra, and lots of it. Citrus, toast, pine, caramel. Verging on over-hopped but this has a solid malt backbone and body that do stand up well. I’m a big fan of Thirsty Dog and this is another above-average offering from them.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2014
12 ounce bottle from And Beer, Athens. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of citrus, tropical, spicy hops, pale malts, something a little bit dirty, but not too distracting. The taste is bitter citrus hops, some tropical and green hop notes, pale malts. Medium bodied, high carbonation, lingering bitterness.

Lukaduke (2141) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a hazy dull brown with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is caramel malt, some peach and mango and a touch of stale grass and cardboard. Palate is abrasive with bitterness and lots of stale malty oxidized cardboard that falls into a overly bitter astringent finish. Meh.

dogfish120love (937) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a clear dark orange with a white lacing. The aroma is notes of orange, faint tangerine and ever so slight pineapple. The finish is malt forward and the flavor is sweet, but not cloying. Fresh this would be interesting

BLADT (587) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle pour. Clean orange with pillowy white head. Loads of webbing. Grapefruit and milled grain aromas. Light tropic fruit. Medium to light body. Persistently bitter - though never aggressive - throughout. More tropical fruit, some resin. Nice finish. A good showing of citra hops. Solid.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle. Dark gold pour, amber hues. Aroma of mango, passionfruit, orange rind, just nice citra. Fuck, way too much crystal-like sweetness in the flavor. Pine, mango, butterscotch. Some orange juice in the finish is pleasant.

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from phaleslu. Pours a clear yellow/orange. Aroma is citrus-tangerine, orange. Solid beer. Nothing stands out a lot but its a good beer.

CpyNPrnT (358) - Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Aroma of citrus, tangerine, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, tangerine, pineapple, moderate alcohol. Very good!

hopscotch (9105) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours golden and clear with a thin, white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is totally hop-driven – big citrus rind and light, musky armpit. Full-bodied and abrasive with prickly carbonation. The flavor is totally in-your-face with heavy, tannic, rindy bitterness. Finishes coarse and bone-dry with lingering bitterness. A bit tongue-numbing. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

r464 (1917) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Nice and crisp, hoppy and bitter without overdoing it. Grapefruit and a bit of earthiness underlying things. Punchy finish.

2.9
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden body with a frothy, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, raw grain, raw hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Citrus and resin taste along with dusty, raw grain. Far from crisp and clean as many competing citrus IPAs are.
