4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Pours a deep coppery orange color with a thick cottony off-white head on the top.
Aroma: Intense tropical and lighter fruits with a complex, resinous, oily hoppy perfume. A few attributes that i can pick are fresh mango, tangerine, peach, a touch of lavender and muscat grapes.
Flavor: Complex hop oils flowing through the mouth and fills the palate with tangerine, mango, honeyish banana sweetness. I can only get a very faint traces of banana-estery yeast notes that they mentioning. The hop resins has a very intense herbal accents towards the finish.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Medium to full bodied impression with a thick, yeasty surface and a soft carbonation.
Overall: Perfect resinous, boldly hopped IPA, but i cant get the belgian touch at all. Typical, american way of hype-festish-brewing. Thick and flavorful of course, but a stupidly trend-oriented attitude.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Chappy’s in Dayton, OH. Poured a very dark amber color. Huge aroma of hops, and yes, bitter hops. Holy bitter hops boys. Very bitter yet smooth. 20th anniversary beer from Flying Dog. Good beer, a little too bitter for me but others would probably kill for this beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark amber with a moderate head. Aromas of citrus, pine and Belgian yeast. Flavors of bitter and piny hops dominate the flavor along with slight fruitiness from the Belgian yeast. Exttremely good and hoppy, but seems a bit over-carbonated and thin.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle - Pours a pale copper color with a decent white head. Aroma of sweet citrus hops, grasses, spruce and cloves. Taste is hops, caramel malt, grass and a bit of spruce/pine. A great combination of the belgian characteristics witht the IPA! Alcohol is very subtle. Very drinkable and enjoyable. I loved this brew! Outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The Bitch has a lot of citrus about it, but goes about being fruity in the best way possible. Noticed the alcohol slightly, but the complex citrus and hops played off each other beautifully with a slight, but welcome, bitter ending.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good solid head on a clear orange body. Some grapefruit and some pine on the aroma. Taste is good, bitterness noticeable but not intense, body seems a little light and fairly easily to drink, overall very drinkable for me and I don’t notice the alcohol.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle-i was suprised to find this on the shelve-i thought this only came in 750’s. clear deep orange with a soapy white head. nose is citrus hops, funky yeasty goodness, belgian malts that smelled a bit plastic at cold, but as it warmed, it became more round. lots of flowery notes as well. flavors are piney hops, sweet belgian malts but the hops here dominate. the belgian malts make this beer a bit unique and different but again, the pine and resin hops dominate. long estery and piney finish. great body with lots of slickness and medium carbonation, unlike many from this brewery. their 2nd best? i think so (behind Gonzo)
