Citra Dog American IPA by Thirsty Dog Brewing is the true definition of an American IPA with light translucent cooper color with a modest head. This American IPA is sporting an IBU of 95 and a solid 6.5% ABV with loads of amazing flavors from the citra hops. Citra Dog American IPA by Thirsty Dog Brewing comes across as a very mild looking brew with little to no noticeable aroma but with the first sip you get a nice moderate mouthfeel with an juicy smooth malt with a bold bitterness and mild bit that has hints of floral and citrus leaning towards a bit of grapefruit and a subtle pine towards the end of the sip. I was concerned when I first saw a few of the Thirsty Dog Brewing 6 packs locally available as the label looked very trendy and I was concerned they were trying to compensate for the brew but after buying a 6 pack and as this is the last of the 6 I have been pleasantly surprised with an impressive American IPA that I would be proud to share with friends.
“Belgian Inspiration. American Creativity” really does say it all for A Night On Ponce IPA by Three Taverns Craft Brewery as this is an amazing craft beer. This American IPA is based on A Night In Brussels IPA but Thee Taverns Brewery swapped out the Belgian yeast for an American ale yeast and the results is amazing! The amazing Belgian inspired IPA pours a wonderful golden color with a large white foaming head and has smells erupting from it of the most classic IPAs with aromas of citrus, tropical fruits and pine. It tastes even better than it smells with a light hint of caramel mixed with citrus and tropical fruits with hints of floral aromas with each sip. It’s beer like A Night On Ponce IPA by Three Taverns Craft Brewery that make you want to try more great craft beers from Three Taverns Brewery. At 7.5% ABV with 69 IBUs this is on the stronger side compared to most craft beers but it is worth every sip and I plan on grabbing a 6 pack of A Night On Ponce IPA by Three Taverns Craft Brewery to share next time I am in Georgia. Plus I am dying to try Three Taverns’ White Hops Belgian-Style White IPA which is currently chilling for the weekend.
