Raging Bitch pours a cloudy bronze color with a small lacing head. There is a harsh and very hoppy aroma. The taste has sweet Belgian candy flavors, but then finishes with a harsh earthy and hoppy flavor. Full body, full flavors, weird flavors. Overall its a very strange beer, it doesn't really know what it is or trying to be, I feel like its someone mixed an old IPA with a Belgian strong.

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, red-orange amber colored with a large off white head that lingers leaving some lacing, clear

S: huge yeast smell, clove, cardamon, banana

T: very bitter hops up front, pine resin, grapefruit peel, blends with above smells towards middle typical of Belgian yeast, clove, cardamon, banana, finish is bitter grapefruit

M: fuller bodied, good carbonation, alcohol well hidden

O: flavored like a massively over-hopped heffe, hop flavor is just one dimension... bitter

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: The beer poured with a cloudy honey-colored/orange color. The small head quickly devolved into a ring of foam.

Aroma: Not much but piney hops, but with slight hints of honey or candy.

Taste: The taste follows the aroma with the addition of slight funk up-front. Hops predominated in the middle and end. Some sourness lingers along with the strong hops presence. Other notes come out as the beer warms: orange and malt.

Mouthfeel: The body and carbonation are fine.

Overall: This is my first Belgian-style IPA, so my confidence in this review is rather low. I'd like to try more of this style, although I currently like malty beers which this style isn't. Accordingly, I did like the way this beer sweetened as it warmed.

I didn't know what it was but saw it on a menu and was intrigued by the name so I tried it and damn if it wasn't a delicious IPA. I get it every time I see it which is fairly rare around here. Why isn't this beer more popular? Highly recommended to IPA fans.
