3.7/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Best by 12/12/11, poured into tulip on 9/10/11.

A: Hazy copper-amber color with an inch of frothy off-white head that leaves heavy lacing behind.

S: Strong orange/tangerine citrus and floral aromas, Belgian candy and light yeast smells. Hint of alcohol.

T: Nice balance– citrus/floral hops provide a good punch of flavor immediately, sweet malt backbone carries things and then lingering bitter finish is pleasant. Near the end of the glass the malty candy sweetness begins to overpower things a bit though. Yeast flavors are subtle, not something I have come to expect from Belgian IPAs, but for the benefit of the beer. Decent amount of ethanol comes through. Slight medicinal flavor on the long finish.

M: Medium-bodied, medium carbonation; hard to find adjectives for this as it's simply very solid rather than doing anything flashy with the body. Little bit of alcohol heat.

O: A good beer; definitely worth a try– could easily see someone enjoying this a lot.

3.61/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into pint glass. A really great take on an often poorly executed style. Flying Dog delights us again with the Raging Bitch. Great dark golden color, the Bitch pours easily into room temperature pint glass. Leaves behind medium lacing with a rich golden-white head. Easy belgian taste up front, followed quickly by bitter hops. The hop takes over the flavor and lingers for a bit. Mouthfeel is overall very nice. Notes of the belgian fullness are there, but in my opinion the hop bites quickly and doesn't let go. Good beer. Would drink again.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a minimal white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of malt, toasty caramel, marshmallow and spice. Those all carry over to the taste, and combine with the hops and flowers to give a distinct molasses note. The bitterness begins to come through as it warms a bit. Nice medium mouth that coats the tongue without being too oily. This isn't something I would drink frequently, but it's a really nice change of pace IPA.
