Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. A stunningly beautiful, clear deep amber with an off-white, almost tan head. Floral scents and citrus. Medium body and bitterness. A bit sticky with a nice subtly bitter finish. Very nice.

355 ml bottle. Clear amber colour with stable head off. Aroma of belgian yeasts, oranges. Taste of yeasts, grapefruits, tangerines, pine, honey sweetness, then huge bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5%ABV. Amber ale.
Poured out dark amber. 16şSRM.
Nose is sweet with treacle, honey and molasses in the nose but without the sour tang. A very clean sweet aroma, like nectar. Hint of bitter pine sap aroma.
Mouthfeel is cough syrupy. Palate has an amber ale’s rounded fuller, nutty character. The back of the throat has that aroma-flavor of old leather which I associate with a nice amber. Hops are barely there.
Finish is clean and lightly beery.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample on tap @ the brewery. Pours a medium caramel brown with a thin white ring. Light Belgian spices but fairly ordinary flavors. Not as good as I expected.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Clear orange body, medium tall head. Aroma has sweet citrus fruits, figs, marmalade, piney American hops, mild yeast funk. Pleasant mouthfeel with good carbonation. Taste has dry/piney hops combined with zesty tangerine peel and marmalade. The yeast gives more dryness and also adds some complex "wild" notes which add a lot of depth to this IPA. Very good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy, pale amber body with a large, creamy, quite dense, off-white head that settles as a layer of foam that leaves lots of laces. Strong aroma of overripe light fruits, oranges, sweet caramel and some yeast. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, overripe light fruits, citrus, red berries and resin. Moderate to light sweet taste with a rather heavy bitter grapefruity and long-lasting finish. Close to full body, smooth texture and soft carbonation. Doesn’t strike me as particularly Belgian or IPA-like, but still a nice brew. It might have been a bit too old.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Mind you, I have had but a handful of Belgian Style IPAs but Flying Dog has my blessing as the best. Raging Bitch is the most recognizable label. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. The head is at about two fingers, fluffy, creamy and a bit off white. The color is a polished orange that could be considered a dark copper. The nose opens a bouquet of fresh sweet bread, delicate florals and fruitful esters. Upon tasting I get a flavor with the likes of caramel and sweet bread almost like caramel cake at the top of the tongue. Toward the middle is a more dull sweetness of the malt lend toward the finish which is a bit funky and sweet with hints of lemon and a bit of candied sugar. The hoppiness is lemony and moderately dry. Fantastic.

Clear amber, white moderate head. Belgian yeast, perfumy fruit, honey, melon on nose. Medium body. Dryish flavour. Not much yeast to be detected. Nectar, melon. Smooth. Bitter grapefruit making it an American one. Very good.
