BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Laughing Dog Brewing
Idaho, United States
laughingdogbrewing.com

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more.

At 98 IBU’s and 5.6 pounds of hops to the barrel it is an all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog Started as a labor of love but quickly took on a life of its own, leaving us drooling like Pavlov’s dogs at the mere mention of its name. Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on.

98 IBU

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: amber with little head and lacing
S: sweet with a caramel or toffee or butterscotch
T/M: similar to smell in beginning with a taste similar to a Werther's. Shortly after you can feel a little pull on the tongue. The hops combined with malt kind of brings out a taste of apricot. A dryness lingers after a sip that is unexpected given the initial sweetness.
O: the combination of malt and dry ended up being enjoyable. Could use a little less syrupy flavor up front, but the rest of the drink made up for it.
