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

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, light amber, nice white head, spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruit, some spices and some malts. Taste is tangy, hoppy, balanced with some fruit and malts notes. Very interesting beer; easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Nem rossz ital, de nem lopta be magát a szívembe. Talán nem az én stílusom, pedig az IPA söröket kedvelem.

Oranje kleurig biertje. Smaak: bitter zoals een IPA hoort te zijn,hop, wat grapfruit, beetje caramel. Een lekkere IPA met een lekker hoog alcohol pecentage.

A well balanced bittersweet symphony going on here. Although i think bitterness is ever so slightly winning. It’s got a good kick of alcohol but not as raging as i expected. Love it.

Flaske købt i Fakta, 0,3 liter. Denne øl smager forbavsende godt, bedre end hvad den dufter.

33cl bottle. Dark brown color. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Long dry and spicy finish. Malty, light hop, cheese, mushroom and caramel aroma. This is more like a belgian hoppy ale.

Awesome taste!! A great marriage of Belgian and west coast IPA! I definitely love the way the Belgian fruitiness balances the grapefruit flavor. Definitely one of my new favorites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour with a foamy white head. Grapefruit hop aromas. Big tangy bitter grapefruit hop notes. A bit on the dry side. Good balance, mouthfeel, and body. Light almost melon like sub tones.
