A: Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Snake Dog pours a nice amber color with a one finger head that dissipates quickly but leaves a nice lacing on the glass.
S: Not a whole lot going on here, but not unpleasant either. I sensed some hops and a hint of caramel, but I shouldn't have to shove my nose this far into a beer to really get the scent.
T: Matches the smell. There are some hops up front, then an odd (for an IPA) sweetness that didn't really resonate with me. The pleasant dry finish helps this beer stay on the positive side.
M: I found the carbonation to be a bit strong with this beer, but I do like the dryness that dominates the finish.
O: I may be overly critical when it comes to IPAs; however, along with stouts, IPAs are my favorite kind of beer, and there are so many good ones that my expectations are high. With that being said, I found this effort from Flying Dog to be somewhat lacking, especially in the flavor department. All in all, not a bad beer, particularly for those who may be shy with stronger brews.
