4.05/5 rDev +11.3%
Robust white foam on the golden amber brew in the De Proef tulip. Hugely aromatic with fruity and flowery hops. The mouthfeel is sprightly.
This is a lusty big IPA that is not overly bitter. The label lists the hops as Cluster, Cascade, Citra, and Simcoe, and the ABV is 6.2%. The fruity hop flavors are delightful. It could be a double IPA with all the aromatics, but it is just generously flavored without the excesses. Well balanced with just enough sweet malty.
The canned version seems to date from the end of 2013. Overall, this seems like an improvement, and it's a highly drinkable IPA. From the 12 oz can purchased at Special Brews in Lynnwood, Washington.

3.7/5 rDev +1.6%
A: fairly hazy; burnt orange in color; steady stream of bubbles rising; less than a 1 finger head that dissipated quickly; a little lacing;
S: really nice combination of floral and pine;
T: no hint of the floral; pine is predominant, but not overwhelming; there is an underlying bitterness; malt sweetness from mid-palate through the finish;
M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; semi-dry finish;
O: I really hoped the flavor would match the aroma; still enjoyable;

A - Slightly hazed orange gold with a finger of foamy off white head, medium lacing.
S - Run of the mill aroma, citrus zest, orange juice, big bready malt, pine, grass.
T - Some dank pine, sweet orange, bread malt, light grass and floral notes.
M - Medium feel, a slight chew to it.
O - Better than I remember it before, and to be honest its the only thing from Laughing Dog I'd consider getting again. Most of their other beers are flat out awful. This though is just a good average IPA. You know what you're getting with this one.

Laughing Dog India Pale Ale has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, with tiny white specs suspended throughout, a few lazy ascending bubbles, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste is of the same, with an overriding sugariness, and there is an underlying hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Laughing Dog India Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable. No alcohol shows up with this beer. I suggest checking this out.
