I don't know what it is that turns me off about the smell, but I think it smells bad. When I first cracked open a bottle I thought I was getting into something I was going to regret.

Tastes hoppy. Tropical citrus flavors balanced by a bitter astringent flavor I can't put my finger on. Another reviewer called it an asprin flavor and I'm inclined to agree, although it isn't strong enough to ruin the flavor. Good balance.

Easy drinking, good amount of carbonation. Crisp.

Really not what I would expect from a Belgian IPA, but it's a good beer overall. Hard to score it too low because I really am enjoying it, but hard to score it too high because it isn't a great representation of the style. I'd buy it again. The higher ABV goes virtually unnoticed.

I want so much to like Flying Dog beers. However, every time I buy one with high hopes...raspberries.

This beer had a head that was too big and just didn't look appetizing.

The smell was a mixture of skunky, flowery...I couldn't tell what was Belgian about it.

The taste was heavy on the IPA and zero on the Belgian.

I want to like their stuff, but I just can't.
