Lived up to the name of trying to be a big dog... might try a little harder but still a great ale, I thought it had a nice sweet malty flavor that turned hoppy towards the end. Great color though, but as a IPA wish it had more of a bite

Draft at the source. Hazy golden color. Nice fruity aroma. Taste has lightly bitter grapefruit and pineapple. Nice.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap at the Reno Brewpub. Some citrus and caramel. Unbalanced and weak. Finishes with a light bitterness and an odd aftertaste.

"had higher hopes for this one, but this is the kind of beer that’s puts BB in the "eh" category. Aroma is ok, but a little too understated. Body is nice, but nothing special. Flavor is a little unbalanced, leaning way more towards the bitter and little citrusy or floral hops in there. Not enough malt either. All said and done, it was still an IPA, but a below average one."

On tap at brew brothers in Reno. Taste is nutty with a weird aftertaste. Color is on the amber side.

Cybercat (5172) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Comes out of the tap a hazy dark honey-amber. Got little head, but this apparently was an artifact of the pour. Strong aroma is very hoppy and has a good undertone of grapefruit. Hoppy flavor is somewhat bitter and, like the aroma, has a grapefruit underpinning. Texture has good body and fizz. If not an outstanding IPA, still a worthy one.

JohnnyJ (5419) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber pour with an off-white head. Citrus, bitter hops, orange, and lightly bready. Decent.

Bif (2069) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 22, 2010
On Tap- Has a clear Copper color with a decent head that faded fairly quickly with very little lacing. Nice clean grainy aroma with a trace of a citrus-sweetness. Has a mild citrus and hops taste with a so-so bitterness. Fairly medium body & smooth. fairly well balanced but expected a bit more. Decent beer, maybe good for a couple. Considering the brew house is in the middle of the Eldorado Casino, its a nice oasis.

Big Dog IPA–on tap-pours a rich light tan head and cloudy amber color. Aroma is pine/grapefruit, sweet medium malt. Taste is pine/citrus-orange/pineapple/grapefruit/resin hops, sweet medium malt-roasty. Medium/full body. Soft carbonation.
