A-Amber, orange body. Sandy hued head. Creamy and soapy with a bubbly few finger thickness. Flattens kind of fast. Not a bad pace but still. Needs better retention that all beautiful quality Belgian beers have. Very little lacing if any at all, that looks more like weak watery condensation. The quick head marred the beautiful clear color.

S-Banana peel. Cinnamon. Orange oil. Faint pine. Some type of herb like basil, oregano or thyme. Not sure. Baked orange ginger cookies or something, I forget the specific name.

T-Taste follows nose, but watered down. Weaker. Banana meat. Lemon. Orange. Really bitter citrus, like biting into citrus seeds. A bready low malt, don't know if backbone, more like a RANDOM jumbled bone placed somewhere in body. But malt is there. Just sporadically displaced, pops up in beginning, middle and finish. Call it a broken malt backbone. No connection. Tastes like a crockpot of randomly thrown in Belgian and IPA traits.

M-Low/moderate body. Tries to be creamy, yet thins and stretches out too much. Low/medium carbonation. Bitter aftertaste.

O-Definition of okay beer. Expected more. Great label art. Quality brewery. Smells and tastes were too muted. There was too much bitter finish without a balance of quality sweet malts & juicy citrus to wash said bitters out. Citrus tastes rotten. Like old grapefruit. But with a robust beer drinker palate, this isn't nauseating. Raging Bitch has enough Belgian and IPA nuances to be branded a Belgian IPA. An affordable introduction to the style. Packed with a high 8.30% ABV, Raging Bitch is by no means a regret. With few BIPA's out there to drink it's worth a try, and that's about it.
