Nothing more than an OK offering from Thirsty Dog. Try if offered, but don't go out of your way to seek. The citra notes are subdued by what I can only perceive as a lack of overall balance.

Love Thirsty Dog brewery but found this IPA to be lacking. The flavor was overly bitter and the aftertaste was too drying. Mouth feel was watery.

Sampled at SAVOR 2015. Nice dank and citrusy taste, but falls a little flat. A little watery in the aftertaste.

On cask at cellar temp. Frothy head. Very fresh, slightly sweet and moderately bitter. Nice showcase of citra.

Pours a clear amber with one finger thick creamy white head, settles to a thin ring, splotches of lace on the glass. Smell: grassy, tangerine, light biscuit. Taste: grapefruit, orange peel, grassy, dried sugared mango note, more sugary pale malt. Body is really cut by the bitterness, thinning out and finishing a bit chalky. Decent but easily the most disappointing citra IPA I've had.

Slightly hazy, amber pour with a lacy head.
Funky, skunky, super hoppy, citrus aroma.
Tastes are that of citrus his, sweet, funky pine and bubble gum taste.
Mouth feel is really bitter. Pleasant bitter!
This is a really good modern IPA! WELL done Indianapolis!
