Flying-Dog-Citra-Imperial-IPAFlying Dog Brewing – Flying Dog Imperial IPA Single Hop Citra – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 10% abv.

Appearance:  Pours a shiny amber gold with a white head that subsides to a mere ring around the edges.

Aroma:   Tangerine and  pineapple fruitiness. Equal amounts of sweet, caramel like malt.

Taste:  Upfront citrus fruit, a quick yet punctuated hop bite, sweet and toasty malt. Finishes fruity with a touch of alcohol.

Mouthfeel:  Full bodied, average carbonation.

Overall: I’d like to point out that all throughout this single hop series, that Flying Dog has been consistant with the base beer carrying the single hop.  Pretty enjoyable and very balanced.
