12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Bright golden hue, sufficient lacing. Grassy, orangey, catty, pineapple, cake batter, rose water and peppery alcohol in the nose. Smooth, bitter, semi-creamy, very warming, bready malt, faintly nutty, grassy, orange peel, meow, pineapple, leafy. Bitter semi-dry alcoholic finish

I get it, still a part of the series ... big ass base beer with a ton of a one type of hop carefully throw at the brew. If you love Citra this is for you ... any real hop head should give at a go as well. Bold but still drinkable.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This one actually beat out Founders 10% ABV Double Trouble.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber with ample lace.

Smell: Grapefruit, pineapple, smoke, and flowers.

Taste: Follows smell with tropical and citrus combining with sweet malt base, not as candied at Founders. Nice long bitter, and refreshing finish. Dont feel the alcohol as much either.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with good mouth feel, refreshing.

Overall: Strong, must try and one of the best from Flying Dog

I love Citra hops. That being said, this beer fully exemplifies what I expect an India IPA to live up to utilizing them. It is juicy and fresh with notes of lemon, orange, pine, and a slight hint of pepper. All working together in a great harmony! It has a medium body with juicy citrus flavor and a slight herbal notes that keep it tasting fresh.
