How have I not reviewed this beer already?!? It is one of my favorite beers from the past year. Let me start by saying that "IPA" should not be anywhere near the name of this beer. It is a bottle conditioned Belgian style ale, with a slight touch of hops at the end. It pours an amazing head (watch out- it will foam up all over the place). The taste is complex and full of esters. If you swirl the last bit of beer in the bottle, it will produce a crazy Dr. Seuss like foam to top your beer off with. The flavors go in every direction, with a yeasty sediment cloud lurking right below the head. An amazing American version of a Belgian farmhouse beer. Just drop the IPA from the name please. What a fun beer! Nice job, Flying Dog.

Flying Dog Wildeman Farmhouse IPA, ale brewed with spices. Brewed by Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, Maryland.

"His axe is stained with the blood of a thousand adversaries. We fall in behind him as he leads us into the darkness, He turns his gaze on us. "Tentanda via est!" The way must be tried." Whatever that means. 7.5 % ABV.

Crisp, clear, golden appearance, under an enormous, brilliant white head. Looks fantastic.

Smells incredible, too. Aburst with vibrant hops. Brimming with citrus fruit, lemon and honey, with Belgian yeast lurking beneath.

Taste: Hop bite hits hard at the start, then flushed with fruity flavor, bitter meets sweet, then swept up with the funk. There's a party in my mouth and everyone's invited. An intriguing mix, a flavor unlike any I've had in a while. I've been skeptical of many of the "innovations" in the craft beer field lately, most of which seem to be little more than "let's make it hoppier". You know, the "white IPA", black IPA, etcetera. Farmhouse IPA? Don't care for the name, particularly, but I'm liking the hell out of the taste of it.

Medium body, excellent drinking, slide down good and carefree, while leaving traces of bitterness in the wake. You get the feeling of a saison overcome with hops, and, damn it all, but I like this one/ I like a lot.

Poured with a nice, foamy, very frothy, cream colored head that settled after a bit and a little lace. Color is a clear light amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is slightly on the mild side; hop, lemon, other citrus and fruit, and a little earthy yeast. Flavor's like nose, has a sharply rising bitterness, very slight sweet, and somehow a perfectly matching carbonic tang. Body is full and has lots of high points from strong bitterness and sharp, but pleasant carbonation. Also has alcohol warmth almost immediately. Finish is like flavor, with lemon and sweetness coming out a bit more, long, and drinkable

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a very hazy goldenrod with a huge 3 finger head, good lace.

S: Grass and yeast, pear, a spicy direct smell.

T: Heavy white spice and yeast. Great earthy and grassy hop flavour with some soured malt.

M: Medium-bodied, frothy, easy drinking.

O: I admit I'm partial to the Belgian IPA, I like when these 2 schools come together. This is a very good beer. Delicious and well made.

12 oz. bottle. No [discernible] date on bottle.

Pours a hazy dark lemon yellow with a voluptuous, billowy, light beige to off-white head. Very good lacing. Powdered sugary malt notes hit the nose, along with a good dose of orange zest, mandarin orange, lemon, and grapefruit hops. Some yeasty funkiness pervades as well. Nice.

Soft, lightly toasted malts up front. Mix of citrus, tropical fruit, and bitterness come on strong. Orange marmalade, lemon, pine, and grapefruit all come through, along with a little pineapple and juicy malt. Big bitterness takes over near the finish, but the fruity, citrusy flavors stay there. Dry, earthy, funky, musty finish. Medium-bodied with a creamy feel. Very appetizing and delicious.
