Fantastic, one of my favorites. Nice hoppy beer with a slice of Belgian sweetness, big fan. Plus a few of these guys will make you have a great night!

Look - amber in color, less than half finger head with some lacing
Smell - lots of hops, and some of the Belgian yeast. Overall very pleasant
Taste - crisp, slight bitterness, and refreshing finish.
Feel - light-bodied, but still full of flavor. The alcohol definitely packs quite a punch and is very well masked
Overall - for a hoppy beer, a very approachable one and easily enjoyable by all. A great go-to beer for any occasion

From a bottle into a proper glass, fresh dated as I live in Virginia. Not a lot of head, and no lacing to speak of. Smells great. Tastes excellently. This is the Flying Dog to take flyer on.

Surprised by the high ratings on this one. IPA is a very competitive beer category and I gotta say this one just doesn't measure up to the big boys. The only good thing about this beer is the alcohol. I will say it packs a punch and you don't need to drink too many to catch a buzz. But in terms of flavor this beer left a lot to be desired. Not very complex at all. Weak head, weak smell, weak flavor profile.
