355ml bottle. Pours hazy amber with big white head. Huge hoppy orange aroma, taste is big resinous hops, orange, pine, pomegranate, yeast, spice and lemon juice. Big bold taste, but like other Flying Dogs too resinous for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange color, average sized white head. Some lacing. Medium to full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of caramel malts, Belgian yeast, citrusy and fruity hops. Medium sweet, medium bitter taste. Long bitter finish. Alcohol is not noticable. Interesting combination, I like it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewtique, Macclesfield.
Beer pours with a big fluffy white head with a deep golden colour. The aroma coming off the beer is pretty strange, you get a nose full of hops, some citrus and a little woody/pine, but you also get a nose full of classic belgian yeast.
On taste, this beer has a massive hop bite, with nice floral/citrus hop flavour. However, the yeast used gives a nice belgian twang to this pretty standard IPA, making it much more interesting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint glass, pours nice glossy golden color with a nice head. The aroma is mainly grassy. I like the hoppy hit that it delivers on first sip. Bitter but great

Pours dark hazy copper with a half a finger of off white head. Smell is slightly funky, notes of hops, resin, grass and lemon. Taste is bitter hop, resin and hay followed by very balanced malt background. Finish is very smooth. Medium body, medium carbonation

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, orange/caramel with a white, one finger head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is odd with notes of Belgian yeast, candy sugar, bubblegum, resin, and citrus. Taste is a weird bitter sweet. Candy sugar mixed with some pine and resin. Medium aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Resiny in the mouth. Overall an interesting beer but not my thing. Belgian yeast and candy sugar mixed with big resiny hops.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a bright amber orange with a thick off-white mousse-like head. Sulphury yeasty nose with a hint of bubble gum. Dryish toasted malt and bitter citrus hops upfront. Complex spicy hop mid-taste. Notes of tropical fruit, lemon peel and cardamom. Bitter dry finish with notes of grapefruit peel and crushed black pepper. What we have here is a hybrid of a Belgian-style golden ale and an American-style IPA. Flying Dog pulls this off with flying collars!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.355l. Clear amber color with medium creamy off-white head, good lacing and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of citrus, pine, yeast, banana and cheese. Taste starts with sparkling grainy and caramel malt, follows by spicy yeast, sour fruitiness and heavy bitterness from start to finish. Full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Initial raging bitterness mellows a bit, but it’s still real IP-A-like with alcohol completely hidden in taste and aroma...
