Purchased a 6pk at Wegmans in Warrington, PA
Purchase price: $11.99
Poured and enjoyed in a DFH Pint Glass
A - Pours a semi-transparent, golden/honey color. A two finger head on the initial pour. Lazy bubbles rising from the bottom. Lots of blotchy lacing left on the glass.
S - A nice combination of hops, a slight fruitiness and the banana aroma associated with Belgians.
T - A different type of taste. You get the hoppiness and pine-like taste of an IPA but it finishes with the familar yeasty, banana-flavor that I taste in most Belgians. A bitter ending to the sip. The alcohol is there but it doesn't overpower the beer or ruin its taste.
M - A medium consistency, light to moderate carbonation. A lingering bitterness is left after drinking. Slightly dry.
O - I like the comination of flavors that the Raging Bitch offers. It's a different combination for sure but the overall taste is enjoyable. Give it a try if your a fan of IPA's and you're looking for a twist on the style.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Label says 139A14
A- Pours an orangeish medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind.
S- Floral aroma of grassy hops and Belgian yeast. Sweet, fruity and spicy.
T- The banana and bubble gum notes of the yeast comes on first and then turns on its heels to meet the bitterness and vegetal flavor of the hops. Alcohol is decently masked and the taste remains interesting to the bottom of the glass.
M- Sharp from the hops and alcohol. Medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.
O- This was probably the first Belgian IPA I'd ever had when I first tried it years ago and loved it. Still holds up today but I've certainly met other beers that attempt the same thing and do it better since then.
