Bottle purchased at Salena's Mexican Restaurant in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a lighter amber orange, with a one and a half inch head, and a bit of lacing.

Smells like caramel and bready malt, and a bit of kind of stale grapefruit.

I'm not sure if this is old, or just bad, or just both- because this is really not doing it for me. It's quite malty, with a weird and bad astingency on the finish, and not enough grapefruit or other fruity hoppiness to balance this one out.

This medium bodied, fairly crisp, but not all that drinkable.

Pretty disappointing stuff from Thirsty Dog. I expect better.

Citra Dog Brewed by Thirsty Dog Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.50% This brew pours out a deep golden amber color, with a nice white head. This brew has the look of most IPA's on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. The smell of Citra dog is rich with hops, citrus , grains , and malts. There is also some bitterness from the citrus. Citra Dog is a real inviting brew, now for the taste. The taste of Citra Dog is bold with hops, grains, and malts. You pick up a hit of grapefruit in the taste of this brew. Citra Dog has a nice smooth balance to it, even the hops and citrus are nicely done in this brew. There is nothing really overpowering about this brew. You really can't pick up on the 6.50% ABV in this brew , it just that smooth. The mouthfeel of Citra Dog is Bold , smooth, clean and refreshing. Overall I'm giving Citra Dog a 4.5 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Thirsty Dog Brewing Company , did a nice job with this one.
