3.5/5  rDev -1.7%

Flying Dog's best effort at an IPA. I find that FD usually trades some taste in favor of higher alcohol content. This version manages to nail the best of both.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - dark, coppery, not very clear. Small head that faded quicky.

Smell - Sharp smell of citrus and hops, dash of pine.

Taste - Bitter at first, with a dry aftertaste. Balanced, nothing seems particularly out of place.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied, well-carbonated, slightly astringent.

Overall: 3.75 - solid IPA, but nothing extraordinary. Leaves you wanting after each sip, but the taste is solid and it's a good bang for your buck.

Hazy oraonge colour, with a small white head that does not hold. Yet there's a good lacing. Smell of tropical fruits, citrus , floral and pine notes. Correct carbonation, medium body and dry finish. Taste of resine, tropical fruits, pine, caramel. It's OK, but not the best Brew Dog I've tried.
