Hoppy, grapefruit in a bottle. Worthy occasional beer.

Beautiful amber colour with big head that sticks around and great lacing.

The aroma is very fruity with orange and grapefruit notes. The Belgian yeast and suggestion of funk also come through on the nose.

The taste of this beer is really remarkable. It has American IPA bitterness and a finish that resembles Sierra Nevada Torpedo which can only be a good thing. Before that one also gets a bit of Belgian sourness. Its just sour enough to compliment the hoppy bitterness and has also enough malty sweetness to allow no one taste to predominate. Seriously well balanced but very big flavours here. Perhaps some people would not appreciate the sour taste but I am no fan of sours yet still enjoyed that element of .this beer

Overall, Flying Dog have really succeeded in fusing an American IPA with a funky Belgian ale. You really get your hop hit and your yeast fix in one glass here and its highly enjoyable,

Great stuff that could really spark a conversation or debate with a beer loving friend.

94/100
