BEER INFO

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A profound love of hops and big brews led to our IPA. A little over the top it is a hophead’s dream come true. An Intense hop aroma and Malty body are followed by a smooth clean finish.

Generous amounts of Pacific Northwest malted barley along with some of the best hops from the fields of Yakima have come together to create an IPA that is very hoppy but very balanced with complex malt flavors.

Served Cool not ice cold so as not to subdue the hop aroma this is the beer that says don't mess with me I’m a BAD DOG.

A: fairly hazy; burnt orange in color; steady stream of bubbles rising; less than a 1 finger head that dissipated quickly; a little lacing;

S: really nice combination of floral and pine;

T: no hint of the floral; pine is predominant, but not overwhelming; there is an underlying bitterness; malt sweetness from mid-palate through the finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; semi-dry finish;

O: I really hoped the flavor would match the aroma; still enjoyable;

A - Slightly hazed orange gold with a finger of foamy off white head, medium lacing.
S - Run of the mill aroma, citrus zest, orange juice, big bready malt, pine, grass.
T - Some dank pine, sweet orange, bread malt, light grass and floral notes.
M - Medium feel, a slight chew to it.
O - Better than I remember it before, and to be honest its the only thing from Laughing Dog I'd consider getting again. Most of their other beers are flat out awful. This though is just a good average IPA. You know what you're getting with this one.

Laughing Dog India Pale Ale has a very thick, off-white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, with tiny white specs suspended throughout, a few lazy ascending bubbles, and fairly heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet malts and piney hops. Taste is of the same, with an overriding sugariness, and there is an underlying hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy and slick, and Laughing Dog India Pale Ale finishes semi-dry and easily drinkable. No alcohol shows up with this beer. I suggest checking this out.
