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

R2k2 (413) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2015
An orange colored beer, cloudy, and it has a orange-yellow colored firm layer of foam. A sweet/sour aroma of citrus and mango. It has a full bitter taste which fills the mouth, and the sweetness remains on the side of the tongue. (Like a grapefruit). A bitter aftertaste remains for a while. Een orange gekleurd, troebel bier met een geel/oranje, stevige kraag. Een zoetzuur aroma van citrus en mango. Een volle, bittere smaak vult de mond, en het zoetige blijft aan de zijkant van de tong. (Zoals een grapefruit). Een bittere nasmaak blijft lang achter.

Probada en Trading Post, Lower Manhattan, New York. Aroma frutal y cítrico con algunos toques florales. Cuerpo medio. Anana, mango y otros frutos tropicales se mezclan en su sabor particular y disfrutable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fajne piwo. Ciekawe połączenie, choć spdziewałem się więcej cytrusów i landryny. Na duży plus zasługuje na pewno wygląd i goryczka.

alomtnez (236) - SPAIN - AUG 26, 2015
Huge and foamy off-white head with very good retention. Foggy amber colour. Aroma is citrus, ripe tropical fruit, some malty and caramel. Taste has slight sourness, toasted caramel, toasted malt, fruit (peach hints) and bitter finish. It is not very hoppy, to be an IPA. Dry bitter aftertaste. A very good beer with a neat Belgian style due to the yeast.

Aroma of fruits, grass, malts, citrus and some floral notes. Deep golden with off-white head. Medium + sweet and medium + bitter. Medium to full body with a average carbonation. Overall perfectly OK, but i would like a bit more hops and fruitiness on the palate.
