Flying Dog Brewery The Truth
What the brewers say
The Truth's sharp hop bitterness begins with pine on the nose and evolves into bright citrus and subtle stone fruit flavors. Developed alongside over a dozen Single-Hop Imperial IPAs. The truth was three years in the making and has some of the most unique hop varieties available today.
What our panel thought
Aroma: “Big sweet citrus, tangerine, pineapple, slight pine, light black pepper, light malt sweetness. Some nice complex fruit.”
Flavor: “This beer has a nice smooth character with some pineapple, lemon, orange, and pine character. The biscuit malt sweetness adds to this beer. It finishes with a slight bitterness that lingers, but isn’t overly bitter. The malt character has a faintly British aspect to it: nutty and caramely. Long, balanced finish is a good blend of sweet and bitter.”
Overall: “Fairly straightforward citrusy double IPA. Nice orange and pine character blends with a delightful malt body to deliver a well-integrated IPA experience. A great IPA to enjoy on its own or with a meal.”
