3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at The White Horse American beer festival, Parsons Green, London. An orange, marmalade coloured pour with a medium head. Floral, fruity, hoppy aroma. Tastes quite complex and smooth, Belgian style IPA, banana, bready. Well balanced and interesting brew. I am not particularly a fan of Flying Dog but this is one of their best IMO.

12oz bottle. a dangerous looking, thick, murky, syrup emerges slowing from the bottle that looks like hazey honey in the glass. tantalizing aroma of minty-herbal greens, flowers, peach. a very interesting aroma, different from anything i can remember. flavor is like a peachy/grapey ipa with belgian sugar, yeast, cotton candy. quite sweet. spicy..almost like a little rye in there.

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.
