COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flying Dog Brewery will celebrate its 20th Anniversary a few months early on Friday, September 25th (the brewery turns 20 next year). The brewery will be sampling the new Raging Bitch Belgian-style India Pale Ale at the Flying dog Brats And Gonzo party in Denver that day as part of the Great American Beer Fest happening that week (unscramble the FBAG acronym to get GABF). More info about the fest can be found on the official Flying Dog blog. The beer also appeared on draft at this past weekend’s Gonzofest party. Al from Hop Talk was in attendance and reported on his blog, “I understand it’s made from an augmented Snake Dog wort with an exclusive Belgian yeast strain (called Diablo) and dry-hopped with a load of Amarillo hops. They’re calling it a Belgian IPA. It was really good. It had that hop bite from a big, bad American IPA with the banana and bubblegum from the Belgian yeast.” Some may remember a beer called, Raging Bitch Birch Beer, that Flying Dog introduced on April 1st. Whereas that low-gravity series beer was a joke, this beer is anything but at 8% ABV (60 IBU). Propaganda from the label: “Two inflammatory words…one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. Let it out. It is cruel to keep a wild animal locked up. Uncap it. Release it…stand back! Wallow in its golden glow in a glass beneath a white foaming head. Remember, enjoying a RAGING BITCH, unleashed, untamed, unbridled – and in heat – is pure GONZO!! It has taken 20 years to get from there to here. Enjoy!” – Ralph Steadman

Bottle. A clear amber beer with a thin white head. Floral scent at first but as she warms the malts and yeast sweetness rises to the nose. Taste is really good! Nice balanced bitter brew. The wife really digs it as well.

: Clear filtered amber pour with an average white medium bubbled head. Scents of pear, citrus, quite lovely to the nose. Flavor is more of the same, hop forward. A nice aromatic, floral, and fruity flavor. Sharp finish. Many of Flying Dog’s beers fail to impress, but there are a few gems beneath the surface. This and double dog fall into that category. I would easily purchase this again. Very nice!

Hops Hops and more Hops. It’s not my favorite category, but one of my favorites in the group. Burnt orange color, medium head, and lots of flavor.

One of the best Flying Dog beers to date. Meduim IPA with that very discernible Belgian yeastiness. Maybe they could have kicked up the octane a bit, but I’m not complaining. Would happily drink this again. The IPA category has gotten a bit stale recently. Thank you Flying Dog and others for breathing some fresh life into my favorite type of beer.

Birra dal colore ambrato carico, con luppoli americani in grande evidenza, bilanciatissimi da un corpo robusto e strutturato. Strepitosa.

Big hops in this one - pretty bitter. Some interesting spices and grassy notes. Finishes real crisp, nice refreshing aftertaste. Really an outstanding IPA.

a great beer, with lots of tropical fruit flavors and a hint of spice. the hoppiness is out standing with a grassy and floral flavor.
