Growler from Khoury’s Liquors in Las Vegas. Not usually excited about local brews, but this is a very drinkable IPA. Darker than Gold, but still lighter than most IPA’s I favor, and suprisingly tasty. Citrusy [grapefruit], nice after taste. Not bold, at all. But, I’ll have no problem finishing this growler.

Sampled at the Brew’s Best Beer Fest on my trip to Vegas. Slightly hazy golden colour with a small head and medium lacing. The hop is nicely blended with the malt grain aromas. The taste is decent with a medium hoppy bitterness. Well-balanced overall and an easy-drinking IPA.

Growler. Rating #43. Dark gold, light amber color with a decent white head. Light aroma, citrus notes shining through. Flavor us a bit more intense, more citrus, grapefruit. Pretty nice drinker. (1841)

Draft at the brewpub. Clear medium dark gold, white head. Grapefruit, bitter hops, slightly sweet malts, and light tropical fruit. A nice drinkable IPA, probably one of this brewery’s best, but not excellent for the style.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2013 This is a re-rate now that my palate has improved. On tap at the brewery. Medium amber coloring with small head but good lacings. Aroma and finish and everything else is like eating Cascade and Centennial hops from the vine. Malt does a moderately good job at balancing. IPA lovers should be happy with this beer.

GLBN IPA Challenge 2011, another winner from Big Dogs. Nice agressive hop flavor, little hop harshness inthe finish. Correct dose of malts to ever so lightly cut into the hop burn. Big IPA with big hop flavor. Nice one

Sampler at Big Dog’s Brewery. This was the highlight of the day! Huge hops in the nose and massive grapefrui throughout the sip. Bitter through and through. Nice.

Poured a dark gold color with a small head. Aroma of fruit, grapefruit, caramel, bread and sugar. Flavor had a nice sugary hop mix. Not bursting with flavor, but nice.
