Poured into a pint glass from a can.

Oringally gave a rating on 13-11-03 of 3.0.

A middle of the road IPA. Maybe this is an IPA variation some like, but not me. One that is local to me, but one I will not drink again. Too heavy to be a nice beer refreshing beer on a hot summers day. 3.0

A – Pours a clear golden with a two-finger off-white moosey head. Good head retention. Sediment in the can, which I poured into the glass accidently. Lots of sticky lacing. This beers only redeaming quality. 4.25

S – Hoppy resins and slight floral. Some pilsner hop aroma as well. 3.25

T – Big malty backbone, bready with caramel and some slight sweetness, even some raisins. Not as bitter as the nose might lead you to believe. 3.0

MF – Medium bodied with a medium dry finish. A nice bitterness in the finish as well that dissipates quickly. Almost chewy with such a big malt backbone, which unfortunately lasts on the palate. 3.00

12. oz. bottle poured aggressively into a 500 mL Unibroue tulip.No legible bottling date, just a random brewery code revealing nothing on the label.

A: Aggressive pour into an oversized vessel reveals a hazy golden beer with 2 fingers of head which stick around after the beer settles.

S: Unimpressive. Despite aggressive swirling and getting ones' nose right into the glass, Hop aroma is lackluster. Slight hints of earthy/citrusy hops when agitated. A faint tinge of musky/caramel-ly malt.

T: Much the same as the nose. Initial perception is slightly bittered malt. Finish is hoppier but is still muddled and hard to place. Starting to wonder if the cryptic date code actually translates to "We bottled this beer 6 months ago."

M: Carbonation is fine. Lingering bitterness in the mouth finishes with appropriate carbonation. Can't fault the mouthfeel on this review..

O: Could be great fresh. But I feel like the sample I'm reviewing has been left to it's own, improperly handled devices. Which is a shame, since I feel Flying Dog typically has its shit together =/
