What's on the Website: "American IPA. Fallen Flag with additional dry hop of Citra and Mosaic."

Hops: Citra, Mosaic.

Where distributed: Narrow Gauge Brewing usually does not distribute and only sells at their Missouri breweries. For it to get to Portland, someone must have cut a damn good deal or done serious grunt work.

Appearance (5%): Pours hazy golden into a pint glass. Unfiltered, a bunch of sediment at the bottom of the can. Frothy white head, some lacing. 4.25/5

Smell (25%): Tropical citrus tangerine and passion fruit with complementing oaty and wheat malts. 4.75/5

Taste (40%): Follows the nose. Pleasing tropical citrus and stone fruit with complementing oaty and wheat malts. Lots of citrus tangerine on the aftertaste. 4.75/5

Mouthfeel (10%): Medium-bodied, some carbonation. Very juicy with some dry tongue. 4.25/5

Overall (20%): An outstanding to world-class Double IPA. DDH (Double Dry Hopped) Fallen Flag was the best of the four Narrow Gauge beers I had on this week's worth of reviews. If you enjoy IPA citrus flavors without any off-putting bitterness, this is the beer for you. 4.75/5

Final Weighted Rating: 4.675/5
