ben4321 (4024) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Location: Cask at Blind Tiger, 3/26/14, as Thirsty Dog Amber Dry Hopped with Mosaic

Aroma: The aroma is light and clean hops, some grapefruit, and biscuit notes
Appearance: It pours a clear amber color with a small bubbly head
Flavor: The flavor is medium bitter with a mild sweetness, clean, similar to the nose
Palate: It has a smooth, clean feel, a light-medium body, and a flat, cask feel
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty drinkable and enjoyable beer on cask. Smooth and easy drinking as you’d expect. The clean hoppiness comes through nicely. Solid stuff.

tillmac62 (215) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours a clear medium amber with a slight red hue. Nice head with ample lacing that retains well. Nose is of mild pine and citrus hops over caramel. Light medium body with a somewhat smooth texture. Above average carbonation level with a nice bit of effervescence. The flavor profile is well balanced, but not very complex. It begins with citric and pine hop flavor, then flows to a bitterness with citrus zest aspects against a slight pine background. The crisp finish effervesces with a touch of caramel sweetness in the background of a grapefruit zest bitterness. Quite tasty.
