look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with some sort of coded bottling date on the label. The new session IPA from Flying Dog, acquired a single bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's.

Poured into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A - It pours a golden yellow-orange body, semi-clear with two fingers of bubbly soapy white froth for a head. Doesn't leave behind much lacing, but it looks good nonetheless.

S - The aroma is pine, resin, citrus rinds, grapefruit, oranges. Herbal, grassy, & pithy. A pleasant aroma for a session IPA.

T - Taste follows the nose - grassy, herbal, & citric. Grapefruit, orange, lemon rinds, pine needles, resin.

M - The feel is crisp & clean - lightly bitter / resinous on the finish. Light-bodied and somewhat watery for the style, but it works well enough for a session IPA.

Overall, an easy-drinker, but a little low on the hops. Not a session IPA I would seek out again.

Flying Dog Easy IPA -----3.5/5

I'm not a huge IPA fan but this was available on the Friday $4 craft beer list. The description of having a bold citrus taste with smooth finish of apricots and peaches sold me on it. I did get the bold (bitter) citrus flavor but did not taste the fruity finish. All in all it wasn't bad for a non IPA lover. Would possibly have it again

Tried at Hot Rod's in Wharton, NJ 10/10/14

12oz bottle.

Pours clear straw-gold with a short head of white that retreats to a partial skim coat. Some moderate lacing for the duration.

Tropical fruit and pine lead off the nose. Apricots, mangos, peach fuzz and a hint of pine sap. Bright and fairly pungent.

Light bodied with a crisp, dry mouthfeel.

Ripe citrus fruit starts the palate. Zero malt and bitterness is minimal.

Finishes clean, juicy, and dry.

Tasty and seriously crushable but it could use more hops.

P- Thanks to Colm for this brew!

A- clear golden yellow with a one finger foamy head with splotchy lacing on mug.

S- pine and floral hops with faint grassy malt.

F- strong pine and floral notes on the mouth with hints of a citrus...lemon? grassy malt on back end.

M- hoppy and crisp and light bodied Ipa that goes down with ease.

O- a sixer of this would be nice...pretty good IPA
