The smell is what should be expected from a good IPA, piney with notes of citrus. In this case, blood orange dominates. Great smell that leads you to believe you are about to taste great beer.

The taste exceeds expectation. You are first hit with a blast of blood orange flavor. Toward the back end of the sip the pine flavor really becomes apparent. However, the blood orange remains at center stage. The after taste is, you guessed it, orange. I am very impressed that the blood orange flavor remains consistent throughout. Perhaps the most impressive part is that this orange flavor somehow manages to not overpower the integrity of it being an IPA.

I rarely ever say this, but this beer has reached an almost perfect balance. In my experience, flavors can often overpower the style of beer and vice versa. The fact that the blood orange flavor is this apparent and consistent and yet does not take away from the style makes this beer a true gem. I would highly reccomend this Flying Dog brew.
