Draft a brewpub in Dayton. Introduced as a Double IPA. Dark amber color with a medium head that diminished slowly. Good strong hop and citrus aroma. Medium body. Full well balanced flavor of hops and sweet with a solid bitter finish.

Draft-brewey. Deep amber/red color. Decent aroma, but something that Icant quite describe with the flavor other than to say that it just isnt quite right. I dont know what it is with Thirsty Dog, but there is something with the flavor of almost all of their beers that just doesnt agree with me. I love Double IPAs, this is/was(they have recently sold all of their brewing equipment) my local brewery, and I really wanted to like this, but it is simply mediocre.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Hazy red copper ale. Smells like a hoppy orange uice, with earthy notes. Hops and sweet candy with very harsh bitterness. Very dry but still well balanced. (Sept. 2004)

omhper (24774) - Tyres, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2004
Bottled by hopsrus, thanks! Cloudy copper colour, rich head. Extreme flowery hop aroma. Sweet, richly malty and tremendously hoppy. Traces of plums, fairly soft mouthfeel.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2004
On tap from the source: Strong strawberry-kiwi aroma. Dark malts with little fizzle (my nizzle) or head. Mellow hops. First sip was w/o sweetness and quite bitter, but further imbibing revealed a nice light sweetness that well complements the hops. The hops are strong but not acrid. Complex, pleasing, fun and delicious. Very dark brown with maple shallows. Spruce/fir hops that linger for 10 seconds on the palate then eases to mellowness. Smells like apple tainted weed.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Herbal, citrus, resin, pine with a little toasty malt in the aroma. Good balance malt, hop flavor, and acidity. Good sweetness. Hop flavor is less distinctly discernable of each component in the flavor than in the aroma but is strong. More bitter and a stronger acidity than most double IPAs. The malt should be more of a blanket for the hops to rest upon. A lower acidity would help to intensify the hop flavor rather than wash it away. That said, it is more drinkable than most double IPAs ("Danger Will Robinson, Danger"). The acidity leads to a cleaner finish and a grapefruit pith is omnipresent in an extoadinarily long finish.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2004
Breathing through an orange pulp mask...Frail fruity sweetness manages to seep through the orangey, resinous hops and argues that a diversity really lives within...An earthy malt biscuit oversees the last half until a momentous hop bitterness topples it...The baccate innuendos underneath help increase the complexity but would need help to bring this one to the forefront of the big boys class of excellence...

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2004
Hazy copper body has a big bubbles crown. Weird fruity nose seems a bit uni-dimensional. Orange zest, grapes or berries flavors. It doesnt appear so hoppy until you take a sip. Actually, this is a beer to be enjoyed in the finish which is long, earthy, grapefruity and memorably long. Otherwise, palate has some interesting refreshing fruit acids interplays, but not so much to talk about in terms of maltiness. medium body, nice mellow carbonation.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2004
Earth, orange, pine in the hoppy nose. Orange definitely dominates the aroma. Orange-brown coloured body with cover of thin white head that lasts nicely. Biscuit malt flavour with strong notes of earthy, orange hops. Very aggressive bitterness comes to the fore in the long, dry finish. Body is medium-light, mouthfeel a touch thin and carbonation low, but it goes down very well. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, lubiere, MartinT and Rastacouere. Thanks hopsrus!

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2004
Dark amber color with a thin head. Aroma of orange pulp, earthy yeast and maybe hops. Flavor of orange peel, crisp malt and hops. Bitter finish, light to medium body, medium carbonation, slightly oily texture. Intriguing, but not awesome.
