Nice rich beer with lots of hops and fruit. However, there is a strange smell in the glass after a few minutes. Kind of mettalic - meaty.
Carbonation is rather low for my taste, but being Belgian, I’m used to highly carbonated beers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35.5cl bottle at home (29 XII 2015). A Belgian-style IPA of copper colour with a yellowish firm and vivid foam on top. The nose has some minimal dirt or hay notes, and lots of hoppy fruits and citrus. The taste is full of fruits at the very start, yet almost instantly really, really bitter. Think of a massive Belgian endive boost. You can really depict the sweetish malts, and Belgian yeast. So that is where the "Belgian style" comes from. The brew is of medium carbonation, yet rather sharp, and the alcohol is pretty warming - it indeed is 8.3% ABV. This is an incredible strong bitter ale (or bitter strong ale), not just the standard IPA brew. The ending is oh so long, dry and of the most bitter sensations I ever had: At least it feels like this.

Clear amber pour with a white head. Smells hoppy and malty. Notes of grapefruit, orange, caramelized malts, a bit of honey and piney hops. The taste follows the same notes, with a nice sweet and malty backbone on top of a bitter hoppy profile.

Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing and slight off-white head. Aroma is dry peachy and pinewood hoppy. Peachy and dry pinewood hoppy initial flavoured. Nice caramel malt base to this. Not overly sweet. Good balance. Smooth peachy and fruity dry flavoured into the finish.

Poured from the tap into a snifter. The beer pours a clear light orange color with an off-white medium sized head. the aroma is full of citrus and spices with a good hop mix. The flavor matches the aroma and is pretty good. Overall, a nice Belgian IPA. My first beer from Flying Dog.
