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.

330ml bottle, poured into a tester glass. A:
Bronze colour, clear, one finger head faded to tiny
rim of film, minimal lacing. S: More earthy than
what is the norm for an American IPA, the fruity
notes were strawberry, also had some dark
chocolate. T: Strawberry, malts, molasses, slight
dark chocolate. Well balanced, slightly boozy. M:
Slightly thick texture, coarse edge. O: Less hoppy
and fruity than other American IPAs, seemed to
work though.

Clear pale body with a frothy white head and great lace.. A/T is sharp bitterness, pine, floral hops.. Slight sweet pale cracker malt.. Simple straight forward ipa.. Every ipa doesn't need flowers and spices and such to make them good.. This one is a great choice.
