Very big fan of IPA's and our server told us Thirsty Dog had come out with an entry in this category. Tried the Citra Dog and absolutely loved it. It reminded me of some of the Sierra Nevada brews like Ruthless Rye. Has a bit of a grapefruit note, but not overpowering. Overall this was a smooth IPA, which is a bit of a trick in itself. Has a hoppy bite without being harsh. Definitely recommend giving this beer a try.

Served on tap into a 22 oz. nonic glass

A- Poured a clear copper color, some visible carbonation, frothy white head left lots of chunky lace

S- Some pineapple, peach, and citrusy notes. Nice aroma, just not very strong

T- Huge pineapple, peach, mango, and citrusy hops. Some honey and wheat like notes. Very juicy and tropical, this highlights Citra hops very well.

M- Prickly carbonation, very dry, very refreshing, medium body.

O- Thirsty Dog really hit this IPA out of the park. One of the best IPAs and use of Citra hops (a personal favorite) that I have had. A very juicy and tropical fruit forward IPA with minimal bitterness.

1 of the best IPA's i've ever had. not too hopped. great smell, flavor. perfect pine, citrus character. gotta try on draft again to compare. great summer beer. bit pricey, but i'm cheap. comparable to headhunter and nano's citramax. aftertaste is a bit weak. tried hard to think of a flaw.

12oz bottle poured into wine glass.

Appearance-pours a very light amber, with a small 1 finger white head. Great lacing. 3.75

Aroma-very citrusy, lots of grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. Some dank pine also seeping through. Truly a great smelling IPA. 4.25

Taste-lots of bitterness, grapefruit with its peel, overripe pineapple. Malts seem to be a little over whelmed with the hops. This beer is about the bitter punch you get on the front of the tongue, after that fades it has a tough time coming up with more flavor. 4.5

Feel-medium body, ABV is low and non existent, this whole reeks havoc on your palate, mucho bitter. 4

Overall-this has all of the flavors of a DIPA and is more bitter than most I've had recently. It packs a hell of a punch for $11 bucks a sixer and under 7 ABV. I am really digging this one, not sure if its a year round or a one off, but I need to get my hands on more. 4.5

A- clear light amber with an amazing sticky off white head. Incredible amount of drippy lace.

S- pungent grapefruit aroma with a hint of pine and pitch tar. Subtle notes of lemon and mandarin lay over biscuit like malt.

T- loads of hop flavor without a whole lot of bitterness. Toasted grapefruit and pine tar with some burnt orange peel. Bready malt provides a solid backbone with a hint of sweetness.

MF- on the lighter side with zesty bubbles.

D- highly drinkable IPA. Thirsty dog kickin ass again.

$2.75 bottle from Abe's.

Got to love a beer with Krypto on the label.

Golden orange body that glows on the outside, chill haze at the center. Three fingers of micro-bubbly pure white foam. No initial lacing.

Huge inviting aroma of grapefruit, orange, mango, and assorted other citrus.

Small malt footprints. An orchard of juicy fruit. Big bitter bite that lingers on and on. I might still taste this in the morning. And like it.

Light-medium mouthfeel with tickles he tongue.

Really like this. Will look for this again.
