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

9/1/13 $3.29 bottle from bottle store by M&D. Bought on the recommendation by Doug and opened by mom for some reason. Light orange in color. Good mix of sweetness and hoppyness on both the nose and mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

La flying dog raging bitch de barril es mucho mas sabrosa que la misma cerveza embotellada. Es una india pale ale (IPA) con alta graduacion y potente sabor

Eye: copper slighly foggy, great tan head, stable, lacing Nose: fruits (citrusy, mango), pine, some bubblegum, no alcohol Mouth: medium to full bodied, quite bitter (long finish), some slighly sour and wild notes here, medium carbo --- Maybe more IPA than Belgian but still very drinkable and that’s an achievement for such gravity and bitterness.

Sweet fruity aroma no hops in aroma(!), bitterness and fruitiness are fighting so its almost possible to feel layers of taste. Bit like breeding zebra with pony-not sure this combination works.

Good IPA. Drunk in Glass in Paris, really a good place. To notice : good afrrtaste, initially it looks like it sinks and doesn't last long but actually it is quite bitter. Also, I don't see mug the Belgian part... Still a very good one!

Bronskleurig bier met oranje gloed. Aangenaam, fruitig aroma van appelsien, hop, citrus. Smaken van caramel, abrikoos en perzik, met een lekkere droge bittere en hoppige afdronk. Smaakt naar meer !!
