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

Heidbummer (152) - SCOTLAND - JUN 20, 2016
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.

cwill (56) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2016
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
