Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Not a great ale bitter hoppy ness over powers yeast like every other beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (7896) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at Public House in Las Vegas. Orange pour with a white head. Citrusy grapefruit aroma and taste. A touch harsh on the finish.

On tap at the public house in las Vegas. Copper brown. Crisp hop taste. First beer that I have tried from big dogs. Well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CaptAnkeny (15) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 16, 2012
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.

Metalchopz (2599) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
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.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - AUG 12, 2011
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)

JohnnyJ (4884) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2011
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.

kathouse (1237) - Nevada, USA - JUL 18, 2011
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.

swoopjones (6864) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2011
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
