4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Belgian-Style IPA, it’s just as rowdy and provocative in execution as it is by title. I really dig how this brewery names all of their beers in a doggy spirit without holding back on the bite...clever and attention grabbing. Appearing a clear burnt orange with copper highlights, the Raging Bitch held a respectable sandy head that gradually faded to sticky sheets of lace. The nose came across as a bright orange peel citrus combined with a light lemon zest making the aroma quite crisp and bitter. There is also quite a bit of Belgian yeast, as there should be, and in the end, the nose is really pleasing. Leading straight into the flavor, there are a lot of hops (Warrior, Columbus, and Amarillo - holy goodness) that make up a large, fantastic bitter bite. The orange is still quite present as a quick zest in the spicy carbonation and medium mouthfeel, though I found myself searching for the yeast after a while. Regardless, this is one Bitch that is definitely raging.

Bottle at Bootleggers Belfast. Pours hazelnut brown. Foamy orange head. Honey and mango on the nose. Big mouthfeel. More floral on the taste, but honey again, and certainly tastes Belgian hop wise. Nice full bitter finish. Good stuff. Decent kick from the booze.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a really nice medium-dark bronze colour, with a great standing head of micro bubbles. Nose is fruit of grapefruit, citrus fruits, pine and yeast. The hops strength come in strong, but doesn’t overpower the beer. Bitter finish. Kind a blend between a Belgian triple and an IPA
