This is the gold standard of Belgian IPAs. As you can see by the amount of review this beer has been amazing successful and is the most popular out of all FLying Dog brews. It satisfies the needs of the hop heads out there and also caters to those on the opposite end of the spectrum that like the Belgian.

This beer smells fruity with a higher than average alcohol content of 8.3%. The beer is a dark amber color when poured into a bottle with a heavy amount of white lacing. Flying Dog forces carbonation in their beer so there is heavy head on this beer. It leads to a smooth, crisp heavily carbonated (though not in a bad way) mouthfeel. The taste is slightly sweet due to the Belgian yeast but neither that nor the taste of the hops linger. This is a very drinkable beer.

Nice reddish amber color. Slightly brown head that leaves a nice lace. Citrusy (orange, grapfruit) nose. Smells like an IPA! Kinda tastes like an IPA but there is something else in there. Perhaps a burnt flavor? Not sure. Doesn't make it a completely different beast. It just makes it a litte different. Ever so slightly chewy, and a bit sticky in the mouth. This beer is good. Very refreshing (though I am thirsty!). Its high alcohol content can make it dangerous! Guess I'll find out. Yum

I am not the biggest fan of Belgian style beers, but the added hops to consider this an India pale ale are a nice touch. The beer is well balanced and not too heavy, but it is very strong and did not go well with dinner. The flavor profile was slightly confusing.

Bottle poured into Samuel Smiths Organic Wheat Beer Glass

A - Thick white head, took a while to reduce and left some white lacing on the glass.

S - Hemp, Citrus

T - Malty and Caramel, Bitter hop finish, not too dry on the aftertaste and the high alcohol content is hard to detect until a lot after

M - As I said, not a dry aftertaste. The strength of the alcohol does come along after a while but only as an afternote. It's actually quite a supreme aftertaste and the belgian method and yeast comes through.

All in all a really good beer.
