look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Nice Amber color, and some good head that lingers for a moment. Pretty clear too.

S: Let it breath a minute. At first whiff this really doesn't appeal. However on the second snifferoo the sweet Belgian notes come out along with the hops.

T: Eh, like most Flying Dog brews this is hit or miss. If you are in the mood for a straight up hop beer with little balance (which several are from time to time) give it a whirl. But if you are more like me, and you like a little balance and complexity with your brew, you can pass on this.

M: Medium and "gamy". I hope that word gives the connotation I'm going for.

D: Nope. That is all.

Bros are right here. I had this right after a rochefort and thats an A. This, not so much. It is nice compared to the rest of flying dogs stuff that ive had. ive yet to try to their barleywine which I am somewhat eager to try.
quite hoppy for a belgian style ipa. in fact it doesnt remind me too much of a Belgian ipa.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.25

A - Nice belgian phenolics in aroma, clove & pepper with a sweet pils malt behind it. Very nice perfume quality. Very low stale cardboard

A- Deep gold, pale off white head fades to thin lacing very quickly

F- Extremely harsh, a combination of hot alcohol and moderately high hop bitterness. Makes it hard to pick up what I think are possibly good malt/ yeast flavors in there.

M- Med full, fairly effervescent.

O- This must be a bad batch, code on bottle is 338A13. I can't believe people drink this and give it decent reviews if this is consistently the beer's flavor.

2.53/5  rDev -34.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from bottle to a tulip glass

Color is dark orange to a golden brown with an off white 2" head.

Smell is full of hops and yeast with an almost sour hint to it.

Taste is overwhelmingly complex with a powerful hint of hops followed by sour hint and following up with the after taste of dry bitterness left in your mouth.

The mouth feeling is very poppy not so much the carbonation as it being burst of favors that you get after the first sip.

Overall this beer is a great taste testing beer other then that I couldn't see myself drinking 2 or 3 bottles before my taste buds are shoot from complexity and the bitter after taste

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A nice looking golden amber color with a white one-finger head. Nice bubbles and lacing.
It all goes downhill from here.

S- offensively bitter and sour yet sweet and caramel malty. I tried to find the spices and citrus and grass that I read about but failed.

T- I love hops but this beer simply killed my tastebuds until the very last second of each sip, just then did I pick up it's Belgian IPA
dry wheat and grain flavors.

M- it's carbonated and oily, but it sucks the life out of my mouth, the same way a tart lemon does.

O- this beer is too over the top for me. Note to brewer- tone it down so the flavor has a chance.
