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.

Big Dog’s Dirty Dog IPA is a crystal clear and lively orange-golden ale with a big, frothy white head that’s very persistent and leaves nice lacing on the glass. A huge, citrusy aroma fills the room with orange and grapefruit smells upon pouring it. It’s a very resiny aroma when it’s up close. It has a super smooth medium body and it leaves the mouth a little oily. There’s plenty of bitterness but, moreover, plenty of hop flavor. Orange, grapefruit and pine dominate the taste. There is a touch of sweetness that’s probably from the malt, but it may be an illusion caused by the candy-like hops. There is a long, bitter aftertaste that continues the resiny, citrus flavor. Wow. This is a bang-up American IPA!

On tap. One of their better beers. Clear amber golden body with a white head. Pine and slightly herbaceous aroma with some tropical fruits as well. Taste is tropical fruits, citrus and light table sugar. Medium bodied, well attenuated finish.

Sampled at GABF 2009. Golden pour. Pineapple and floral hop aromas. Caramel, toffee, and tangerine flavors. A good IPA.

nickd717 (3473) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 10, 2009
First Nevada beer for me. On tap at the ’09 Bistro IPA Fest in Hayward, CA. Golden amber color with a white head. Big pine and citrus aroma with a little sweet malt. Flavor, however, falls a little flat relative to the nose. Pale malt and earth with somewhat muted citrus/pine hops and a little cheese. Palate somewhat standard for the style. Decent but not great overall.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 6, 2009
pale copper golden brown colored pour with a big off white head and an abundance of spotty lacing. big floral and citrusy nose with nose of pale malt and earth. the palate is quite dry though there is a good pale malt backbone... flavors of citrus, dirty earthy hops, pine and some spice with a dry vaporous finish. parching aftertaste. medium bodied with crisp prickly carbonation. 7/3/7/3/14/3.4

sebletitje (6602) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2009
Sampler at Big Dogs Brewing, Las Vegas. Pours golden, white head. Aroma of pine hops. Taste, sweet hops, sumit, with light spicy finish and a mouthfeel that reminded me of mold cheese, some malts also lingers and make this one a totally tasty IPA.
