From bottle at home. May have had a date on the bottom, but was indecipherable.

Intriguing, billowy, foamy head that settled to light lacing. Assertive citrus in the aroma with a side of some fruity funk. Very clean finish on the palate with a low back that thickened as it warmed.

Having been completely wowed by the Citradelic earlier this summer, this brew had it's work cut out to out do New Belgium. It was good, but didn't reach the high water mark I had in mind.

I'd definitely pick it up again, but not a whole 6er, just a one off for variety in a session.

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.
