A beer has returned to our area!!

This beer pours an absolutely shiny dark gold. Bubbles come from the bottom of the glass. The head went away but some lacing stayed.

Smells like Belgian hops

Taste is really strong for a BIPA. Citrus rind, Belgian hops and malts that seem a little more roasted than others I have had. I am drinking this one rather warm. It will be interesting if there is a little mellowing of flavor when it is cooler.

Mouth feel is average, could be better. Intense flavor does slow me down a little.

Appearance: Pours out an amber-hued, clear body with a goodly sized, clumping, white head.

Smell: Faintly sweetish accents to the pale, bready malts followed by a splash of brandy and whiff of aromatic cloves. Then, it's time for the hops with a vibrant citrusy fruitiness and floral, grassy hints.

Taste: Simple, sweet opening with pale malts rounded out with a light breadiness. Abundantly bitter and hoppy, with full tastes of lemons, tangerines, and white grapefruit with marked grassiness. Minuscule astringency. Spicy ground clove character. Hint of white grape-flavored bubble gum arrives rather late. Remains firmly bitter for the dry, warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: For all of the alcohol and IBU's within, it goes that fairly smooth. While Horn Dog and the seldom seen Barrel-aged Horn Dog still remain the Best of Show winners for me, this new Raging Bitch surely deserves a ribbon of its own.

Good beer. Has a sweet hops flavor, mixed with the traditional Belgian crisp drinkability & wheat flavor. Very good head. It doesn't taste like it's got a lot of alcohol in it like a lot of imperial IPA's. I drank it paired with a Greek salad and some noodles with butter.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle (bottled 3/10/10) into a snifter glass. Pours a clear reddish/copper with a nice frothy head and light carbonation. Fruity aroma with some phenols and light caramel. Taste notes of light mango, caramel, and candi sugar. Good creamy mouthfeel with just the right amount of hop bitterness. Very good example of the style that I will have to try again.
