Coming from a brew so named, I didn't expect such a balanced beer. Pours a light amber with a white one inch head, dissipating into nice lacing. Lots of visible carbonation. On the nose, I notice the aroma of Belgian style yeast, and some pine. Also some sweet malt. I am also getting some citrus, orange peel. This beer begins bitter, then you get the familiar Belgian beer flavor, then you get the hops again. I am picking up notes of pine and citrus, some grapefruit. Although this beer has a relatively high alcohol content, though it does not taste hot. i would say that is of medium body, though the alcohol does catch up to you. I am quite pleased with this beer. It is everything that I would expect from the style.

Had this one at Bierkraft earlier today on a whim, and was impressed. This is the first Flying Dog I've had, because I tend to find their schtick annoying, but coming out of the cask, this one was a winner. It has a nice, cloudy gold and amber hue with lots of fruity hop aromas. The body and taste work well together, as the malt is present, but soft, which works well with the lower carbonation of the cask, and the mild diacetyl.

A - Dark orange, off white head, significant lacing
S - My favorite part of this beer. Spicy citrus, unlike anything I've smelled before
T - The taste seems to clash between the citrus hops and Belgian yeast. Some malt is present. Bitter after taste.
M - Smooth, high carbonation
O - I love this beer because it opened me up to a whole new world of styles. Flying Dog is a decent brewery, if you were going to try any of their brews this should be the one.

12oz bottle from 6-pack
A- Pours a golden orange brown with about a quarter finger of slightly golden off-white head. Has above average carbonation and is a little bit cloudy. Layered lacing.
S- Hops, yeast, some spices, slightly sweet and a little bit of a bitter smell.
T- Hops, a little bit of bready yeast, some bitter spices. A little bit sweet but more bitter then anything. A slightly sweet aftertaste.
M- Alcohol decently well hidden at 8.3%. Above average carbonation. Medium bodied.
O- This beer was pretty decent, however there are many other IPAs that I would rather drink. The taste wasn't bad, however the yeast, spice, and hops didn't really balance the best in my opinion. The yeast was a little bit too overpowering for an IPA and didn't match the best with the bitterness. I also prefer a little bit more sweetness and flavor. Other then that it was a very drinkable beer, especially at 8.3%.

Crystal clear copper. A great eggshell colored head, good lively bubbles and plenty of lace. An absolutely beautiful beer.
Very floral hops. Sweet and flowery. Some light biscuit malt. It smells light, sweet and enticing.
Sweet floral hops, citrus, pine and wood. The hop flavor is bitter toward the middle and the bitterness never lets up from there. There is also something medicinal mixed with warming alcohol, and a hint of biscuit. A good medium body with just enough carbonation.
There is something in the flavor that I just can't put my finger on, but the beer is good. Absolutely beautiful and enjoyable all around.
