Very clear golden amber color with little head that doesn’t stay for long. Nice lacing. More Belgian on the nose than I expected. Hoppiness underneath, but not forgotten. Again, more Belgian taste than IPA, which is good for me. Sometimes I think the IPA overtakes the Belgian taste more than it should. This drink is so light, it really surprises me it has such a good taste.

$8.99/6 pack. Central Market. San Antonio, TX. A very clear golden brown with an almost red hue to and a small head. The aroma has a nice fruitiness to it and that distinct Belgian yeast character. A pleasurable and very nice aroma. The hops mix very well with the yeast. The taste is again fruity at first then the yeast contributes banana, pepper, and other spice that I can’t finger. The yeast also seems to add bitterness along with the hops. You know I was real surprised with this one and kind of changed my opinion of Flying Dog. Personally I think this is the best "Belgian IPA" I have tried.

Clear, light copper colour, with good white head. Cool gonzo artwork on the bottle. Fruity, hoppy aroma. Taste is initially sweet, then hop bitterness overtakes. Feels light (non-viscous) in the mouth with nice hop flavour. Very well balanced for 60 IBU’s. My kind of IPA.

hazy orange-tea color, thin white head with large bubbles and light lacing. Nose of honeycomb, pepper, and grass. Lightly floral Flavor of orange and tea, a bit medicinal with warmth. Thin, bubbly body. never really comes together, reminiscent of Weyerbacher.

the only other beer ive had that claims this category would be hop devil, another wierd beer. this beer tatses like....well, read the description. thats a good place to start. i also detect a peppery spiciness. the banana and bubble gum are there. faint. the hoppiness will bring happyness but its not really over the top hoppy. for less than 10 bucks you get pretty messed up and you get original steadman artwork so BUY THIS BEER!

Medium head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is orange, some lemon, banana, bubblegum. Great estery, fruity flavor with a solid, but not long-lasting bitterness. Some definite alcohol warmness but just the right amount. Somewhat crisp but lingers on the tongue a little. This is my first Flying Dog and I am very impressed.

Dark, hazy yellow pour with a cream head. This is one of those beers that doesn’t excel in any one area, but really jumps out with its novelty. Creamy fruity aroma. Creamy, hoppy flavor. Very unique.
