Out of the Flying Dog sampler case, dated 4/12/12.
Poured into a pint glass, this is a pretty dark IPA. An intriguing red-gold. Half finger of eggshell head, decent retention, and a fair amount of lacing.
The smell is pretty deep and leans towards the piney side. Other than that, it's hard to say, but there is a faraway malt background, and just a tinge of citrus.
I'm guessing this is a pretty fresh case, because the taste is just awesomely hoppy. Resiny bitterness on the front, with a sweet to citric, dry aftertaste. The mouthfeel works really well with the taste. Prickly carbonation, dry on the finish. Not too thin, and it doesn't turn into a mouthful of foam either.
If it has anything working against it, Snake Dog is not the most complex IPA. But hey, it's remarkably drinkable, given its ABV, it's nice and bitter. I will thoroughly enjoy the other 3 in my case. Wish I had more.
