Flavorful Belgian IPA, very hoppy profile with a semi-fruity (banana and spices?) aftertaste. Flavor could be more consistent from sip to swallow. Also got a hint of Chicken Parmigiana on the back aftertaste

An incredibly balanced Belgian IPA. Extremely drinkable as a session beer. But be careful the name is accurate. It will wear you out. Pours a golden amber with a 1 and half finger head. The initial flavor is bitter but not overpowering. Follow up flavors of spice and hops can be overwhelming in the first couple of sips. An aftertaste of hops and fruit is left in the mouth. Mouthfeel is good. Not too heavy. Overall the Bitch is a good value and excellent example of the style.

Long one of The PubScout’s favorite beers, Raging Bitch classifies itself as a “Belgian IPA,” which is a bit of a misnomer. It’s really Snake Dog IPA made with a Belgian yeast called “El Diablo.” But the result is a Beer which delivers malty caramel on the front end, then citrusy hops come in nicely to produce flavors of orange first, then grapefruit, and a nice piney note. Clear orange in color with an initially fluffy head, it finishes with a pleasant dryness that begs for another go. But beware if that 8.3% ABV if you’re planning to “session” it. Damned good beer.

A good value for an 8.3 abv Belgian ipa. Not as “sweet” as a golden monkey and the higher abv is hidden well in the balance.
