COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our hoppiest beer! The complex character of American hops and amber colored caramel malts make this beer very crisp and refreshing. Silver Medal winner at the G.A.B.F. 2001.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Light amber in color with a small white head. Fruit and citrus hop aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a hoppy citrus character.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Pours copper with a medium bubbly head which leaves no lacing. Spicy, hoppy aroma. True to its name, this beerís flavor is dominated by hops. Thin mouthfeel. Decent, but not great.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Orange with a slight red tinge, fast ending off-white head. Grapefruit aroma with a touch of lemon. Watery body, fizzy mouthfeel. The ending takes away a bit for this beer.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Tap: Amber with frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of pine, light grapefruit, toasted biscuit/pale malts, and some grainy esters. The taste is bitter and metallic, the malt is too subdued, therefore comes off unbalanced. The feel is watery and thin. This beer starts nice and finishes weak, disappointing, an IPA IMO. (JSquire said this is better in bottle, Iíll hold him to it).

TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2004
Hazy coppery peach. Sticky, dusty-white loose foam. Soft aroma of caramel-covered orange rind, apricot, and glazed, lightly toasted malts. Soft body. Delicate, fuzzy carbonation. Starts with bitter orange rind flavors with mushy malts and an acidic spoiled apricot/caramel blend. Much more hop flavor than bitterness. Flavors brighten toward the finish with fresher hop notes and subtle apricot and well-defined bready malts. Lots of lingering slick peach notes, but little in the way of sweetness to deter the acidity. This is probably past its prime (itís notably soggy with very little hop nose, to boot) but once again thereís no bottling date, so whoís to say? Blah.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2004
On tap at the Dayton location. This American IPA...ahem...English Pale Ale (for now) is reminiscent of so many other IPAs and in that regard has perhaps the least house character of any TD beers Iíve tried. Thatís not necessarily a bad thing- this beer is dominated by C-hops, apparent in the aroma as pine (when the beer is cold), evolving to strong citric grapefruit as the beer warms. Standard IPA flavor of pine/grapefruit hops, balanced by a touch of caramely malt, and finishing bitter. Body is clear copper, topped by a medium cream-colored head. I suspect this beer is rated higher than many other Thirsty Dog offerings because it is an IPA, not because it is necessarily better than other beers on the premises. Solid but conventional.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - APR 29, 2004
Hops certainly stand in the forefront of this brew - from the nose to the finish. As a hop head (yes, Iím still proud to call myself that), I appreciated the fresh hop aromas and tasts, but this is NOT a sophisticated brew at all. Almost homebrew-ish, to tell the truth. Not impressed, but I downed two of them with glee nonetheless. Worth a go if youíre in Dayton (but why would you be there if you didnít have to go?). Otherwise, this brewery is only good for getting a sampler to boost your ratings number. Zero atmosphere, family style restaurant (yuck!), and a crowd that I couldnít warm up to.

stefanberggren (135) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2004
a really nice hop aroma beer. flavor is really nice with sound hop character and nice malt backbone. Perfect for those dog days of summer. Nothing exceptional but still very drinkable....

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2004
Clouded amber with a very thin lingering head. Aroma is hoppy, nice leafy crispness. Flavor isnt too stand-out because the palate tends to dominate it. A lot of bitterness to the front end tends to mark this one.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 24, 2004
Pours a clear light copper with a thick and well-lacing white head. Nice fresh hoppy aroma has a caramel malt balance. Body starts semi-sweet and dry with a full hop presence throughout. The dominant alpha acid from the hops seems to override much of the malt and make the body seem confusing and the finish is much the same. Still a nice and quite drinkable brew though.
