I really like hops showcased on a pillow of Belgian yeasts and this does it for me. More subdued than a typical IPA and showcases the more floral elements of the hops. This is a winner and I wish I had access to it in cans!

Really easy to drink such a big beer!

Good IPA, not too hoppy and doesn't feel as strong as the ABV. Noted the bready malt taste immediately and then the citrus finish. Felt like it tasted better with each sip.

From a 12 oz. bottle into a 16 oz. mug pours a clear light amber with a frothy head with good lacing.
Head does not last very long but comes right back with a swish.
I smell yeast and the resulting esters. Lots of hops and some malt.
Yeast is in the flavor plus typical IPA elements; bready malt up front, pine bitterness and citrus finish.
This is my 1st Belgian style brew so I can't judge the yeast flavor over other yeast types but the difference is noticeable.
I am learning.
Medium texture, sweet at 1st, bitter and slighty sour finish.
Well hidden alcohol until it warms, then it is still fairly well hidden compared to other offering at this ABV.
Looking forward to trying other beers from F.D., and this one again.

Smooth and slightly filling (3 beer) light aromatic fruit smell (fig/plum) a tad darker amber shade. A good smoking BBQ beer. Medium filling sensation. Overall great beer, will buy again. 1cm head heavy pour.

Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA brewed by Flying Dog Brewery, with an ABV of 8.30%. This Belgium IPA pours out a deep golden Amber color almost copper in color. This brew also has a nice white head to it. There is also a nice amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks to the side of the glass well. The smell of Raging Bitch is rich with hop bitterness, and earthy grains and malts. There is alot going on in this IPA. This IPA has the look and smell of most ipa's on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it is bold with hop bitterness. There is alot of hops and earthy grains in this brew. The body of Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA is medium to heavy. If you are not a fan of his this is not a brew for you. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 8.30 % ABV in this IPA. This brew just goes down that smooth. The month feel is Bold, Rich, Hoppy, Clean, Smooth and Refreshing. Overall I am going to give Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA a 4.00 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Flying Dog Brewery, did a super nice job with this brew.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Clear golden copper pour. Thick foamy white head. Tons of sticky lacing.

S: Citrus and lemon. Some Belgian yeast notes... hops and grapefruit.

T/F: A nice take on the Belgian IPA. Toasted grains and Belgian yeast. Banana and citrus... refreshing... spicy... caramel sweetness... grapefruit and nice hop bitterness. Relatively light-bodied. Solid carbonation... the finish is citrus and yeast.

O: A very solid Belgian IPA. Great combination of flavors that play nicely together. By far the best beer I've had from this brewer.

This beer pours a bright gold with a medium sized head. The aroma is quite tropical, with pineapple, mango, kiwi, tangerine, banana, clove, and bubblegum. The flavor starts sweet and inviting, with banana, bubblegum,, then mango, pineapple, with a mildly bitter and caramelly sweet finish. The mouthfeel is fairly full with abundany carbonation. Overall A really solid and fun beer - nothing serious, but quite tasty.
