A little too bitter if you ask me.

Murky brown colour with a pink-ish head. Smells like a stale IPA, with some extra notes of artificial strawberries. The taste is also stale, with sweet pine and some hints of strawberries, on top of an almost-medicinal type of bitterness. I'm thinking I might have had a bad bottle, or something.

The beer is a dark caramel colour with a small cream coloured head, not much in the way of lacing either.

Smells like pineapple, caramel, grassy hops, raisins and cheap strawberry bubblegum. Quite sweet for an IPA.

The taste is like the smell, sweet raisins and caramel alongside grassy hops, a little pine and notes of tropical fruits and strawberries. A nice balance of sweet fruitiness and hoppy bitterness that is different from other IPA's I've had so far.

The mouthfeel is a little thin and flat sadly, which makes it the worst part of the beer by far. A little more carbonation would've made this more enjoyable to drink. Still, it goes down easily and smoothly.

Overall this was a nice surprise from a beer I picked up on a whim, nice and fruity flavours make for an IPA with a twist that I'll probably get again.

Ruby amber with white carpet Fresh, bright strawberry and bubblegum nose.
Fruit punch and raisin bread malts, slight hint of woody smoke, with sap and sticky orange resin hops. Juicy finish, powdery bitter linger. Medium-full, chewy, sticky.

Big gooey IPA, almost like an amber. Nice balance of fruit compote and hops that are fruity one minute and pine bitterness the next. Label says 75 IBU, which I could see. Would be curious about the hop bill (Simcoe in there if I had to guess) but no further info that I can find.Yeasty sediment at the end adds a lot of winey berry notes.

The Thirsty Tiger is a interesting twist and a solid example of a US IPA.
