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.

Poured bottle into New Belgium globe

A-Poured hazy light amber with a one finger white head. Above average lacing.

S-Aroma of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, caramel, aromatic hops.

T-Flavor is creamy caramel malts, strong citrus hops, with a bittersweet finish.

M-Mouthfeel has a medium to full bodied with average carbonation.

O-Overall a great showcase of Citra hops. I think it's FD best IPA yet. Will buy a sixer now
