I did not love this. No subtlety to the flavor and you can really taste the high ABV. I do, however, love Flying Dog's labeling and general attitude towards the world, so I'll continue buying their beer, just not the Raging Bitch.

Have to say I am not a great ipa fan. But wanted to give some of them a try.

I opened the bottle poured it in a Duvel glass. Smell was really nice, first taste not too bad, but i can't stand the bitter aftertaste that keeps sticking for ever.

The more I drink it the worse it gets. Probably not a bad ipa but really not for me

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: Nice Amber color, and some good head that lingers for a moment. Pretty clear too.

S: Let it breath a minute. At first whiff this really doesn't appeal. However on the second snifferoo the sweet Belgian notes come out along with the hops.

T: Eh, like most Flying Dog brews this is hit or miss. If you are in the mood for a straight up hop beer with little balance (which several are from time to time) give it a whirl. But if you are more like me, and you like a little balance and complexity with your brew, you can pass on this.

M: Medium and "gamy". I hope that word gives the connotation I'm going for.

D: Nope. That is all.

Bros are right here. I had this right after a rochefort and thats an A. This, not so much. It is nice compared to the rest of flying dogs stuff that ive had. ive yet to try to their barleywine which I am somewhat eager to try.
quite hoppy for a belgian style ipa. in fact it doesnt remind me too much of a Belgian ipa.
