Cellar-temp bottle poured into DFH signature glass.

A: Raging Bitch pours a little more sedately than a typical belgian IPA, but it has a nice fluffy, white head that slowly dissipates, leaving haphazard lacing. The beer is pale to medium amber.

S: Not citrusy in the nose, more like peach and apricot. Some spiceness, as well. Simple, but different.

T: Yes, peach and apricot seem pretty accurate. I also detect toasty malt and classic spicey Belgian yeast. The finish is bitter and surprisingly dry.

M: Not as highly carbonated as I would expect, but tight and effervescent enough to allow the flavors to pop. Medium-bodied.

D: Good drinkability. I'm glad I put four bottles of Raging Bitch in the sixer I built today.

Many other reviewers are raving about the sharp citrus of this beer, which I simply didn't get. Maybe I've been hitting the HopSlam a little too hard!

Had this on 2011-12-26 in Columbia, PA

A - Very clear, red-caramel with a 3-finger light tan head and good lacing.

S - Bready, Belgian yeast, hop floral, banana skin/band-aid,touch of pineapple, spice and some caramel malt.

T - Interesting combination of banana skin, , yeasty bread, orange zest and hop buds. Lingering yeasty-fruit and moderate bitterness.

M - Medium body and carbonation. Oily and a little bubbly.

O - This is on the West Coast side of a Belgian-American IPA.

Poured the 12oz bottle into a snifter glass to find a nice clear, dark orange body with a nice one inch head that left a little lacing on the glass. The aroma was dominated by the yeast & hops. The taste was interesting you get the belgian yeast first then the bitter hops. The drinkability is good, its a crisp, clean beer that is easy to drink. The alcohol is masked very welland you would never guess that the ABV is that high. I enjoyed drinking the beer. It was something different but it was enjoyable.
