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

Cloudy amber with a lasting white head, leaving lace. Hoppy aroma, herbal and fruity with a bunch of peach. Flavour of exotic fruit and hops. Very bitter with a hint of tobacco leaf in the finish. A very tasty and easy drinking beer.

wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2010
On tap at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Surely one of the great beer names....Good looking orange colour with a nice white head. Pukka piney resinous hop nose with a healthy dose of fruitiness. Creamy mouthfeel. Top notch flavour.... slightly sweet, with grapefruit, warming booze, caramel malt, then drying out nicely. Great bitterness. Thoroughly enjoyable and a cracking amalgamation of styles.

Bottle. Deep golden body with a medium off white head. The aroma is passion fruit, peach, lots of caramel, banana and light citrus. Fantastic balance. Gotta be Nelson Sauvin in this! The flavour is bitter hoppy, caramel, peach, passion fruit and light spices. Great caramel backbone. The finish is quite bitter. Great IPA.

FunkyBrewster (1517) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours an amber gold with a small white froth. Aroma is very fresh tropical fruits, an interesting sort of mango, and maybe some apricot in there is well. Dominated by the fruits, a slight caramel sweetness. Flavor starts promising with a strong fresh tropical fruit character. Gives way to a rich malt complexity, again promising, some darker fruits, touches of toffee, a bit candyish. A strange metallic sharpness towards the finish, which is mildly bitter, but lingers. Medium to full lightly sticky body, and a soft carbonation. Nice IPA, good balance and fresh.

Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a very nice looking deep burnt orange with thick creamy head. Aroma hits you in the face with spicy grapefruit with faint bubble gum. Flavor is bold, malty, grapefruit, light bubble gum with an aggressive bitter. Mouth feel is medium-heavy body with high carbonation. Overall, an excellent beer!
