I am not afraid to admit that I am not a Flying Dog fan. I find their beers quite lackluster, with the exeption of a select few. Their 20th Anniversary beer better be worth the wait. Here is my review:
A: Pours a nice golden amber color. Somewhat hazy. Head is okay with some light lacing. Some carbonation is present.
S/T: The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, with a touch of Belgian yeast. Taste is excellent. Very hop forward on the palate. Lots of grapefruit, citrus and a touch of pine. A little bit of malty sweetness. The Belgian yeast comes though in the finish. Very complex, hoppy and balanced. Easily Flying Dogs best beer.
M/D: Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Pretty bitter with a semi-dry finish. Drinks very nicely. Could be sessioned.
I already said this is Flying Dog's best beer. Easily. Is it the best Belgian IPA? Possibly. There is stiff competition, but I think this one can hold its own. Buy this beer. Flying Dog has to make this their official anniversary beer: a yearly release in the Canis Major series.
