A-like you would expect, light clear no real head

S-very hoppy, searching for something more and yet i just get hops which is not bad, but i like some depth.

T-hops BAM, very bitter and hop filled, notes of pine tword the end and a trace of balance, but it very much is and IPA and the taste shows.

O-if you like hopes and not to much balance it is good. i would not recommend it if you are just venturing down the IPA road, but its a good drink and i would get it again

Decent price decent beer. there are more balanced IPAs and ones with more hops, but this one gets the hops down but leaves me wanting some character/depth

Another foul-mouthed beer name from Flying Dog. Poured from bottle to standard pint:

Pours a nice looking burnt gold with a finger of dense, creamy head. Pretty good lacing and a very active body.

Definitely some spicy yeast right off the bat. Citric hops and mild malt backbone. A bit dull, but nicely balanced.

I'm digging this one. The spicy yeast character goes great with the highly bitter hop profile. Very heavy stuff, in a good way.

Feel is good but the finish is exceedingly bitter - like straight up orange peel bitter going on up in here. It doesn't detract from the beer but it also doesn't have me thirsty for another one.

Overall, a unique beer. Give it a go.

tulip glass.

a - pours a deep amber color and gave me a pinky's worth of rocky, light tan colored foam. retention is excellent, slowly falling back to a thin cap. leaves some nice, leggy lacing in the glass.

s - bubblegum, grass, clove or cinnamon spice.

t - toffee malt character with a faint spiciness. faint grapefruit bitterness leads into big herbal bitterness before finishing dry with a pine resin snap. yeast flavors take a back seat to the hops in this one. faint alcohol taste on the back of the tongue.

m - medium in body lightened up with the right amount of carbonation. finer co2 profile. faint alcohol warming. very smooth.

o - a nice take on the style, more so than i was expecting. the mouthfeel is really what makes this so enjoyable for me as the belgian yeast is toned down and carbonation levels are just right. easily the best flying dog brew i have had yet.
