COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
More cunning than a snake in the bush...Snake Dog India Pale Ale is a Colorado-style IPA, power hopped with specialty hops from the Pacific Northwest. This is the brewery’s hop monster, and the citrus fruit aroma will hypnotize the senses of the most hardcore of craft drinkers. 15 Plato, 60 IBU, Crystal Malt, Warrior and Columbus hops, and dry hopped with Columbus.

355mL courtesy of TJ at the brewery. Pours a clear light amber with a small head that has okay lace. Aroma is light hops, crystal malt, and then some corny/grainy notes take over. Taste is very bitter with burnt toast losing the hop character. Finishes very bitter. Meh.

Bottle - Reminds me alot of Founders Centennial IPA. Pours reddish amber with a 1 finger head. Nose is fantastic, strong pine, taste is incredible. Malty, bitter and finishes nice and hoppy, strong pine that lasts. What an IPA - hands down best in the Mix Pack.

Huge piney hop nose. Pours a pale golden color with a thick white head that dissipates. Piney hops with traces of caramel malts, sticky feeling, resinous, grassy hops, definitely hop forward. Not a bad IPA a little catty but still enjoyable.

The beer pours reddish-orange with a large white head. The aroma is resiny hops with some citrus notes. The flavor is resiny hops and something that resembles grapes. Low to medium bitterness. Medium carbonation and thin-medium mouthfeel. A decent American IPA, but nothing special.

Leighton (12615) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2010
Draft. Solid IPA with a powerful yet restrained hop profile. Citrus and pine notes prevail, with some mild stickiness in the aftertaste. A reasonably high ABV adds some extra punch.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 On tap at Mad Mex, golden cloudy with a modest head and plenty of citrus and spicy hops. Very nice for though not as aromatic as some Jan 2013 bottle, not aromatic and lacking in hops

Super bitter with a great finish, this beer pours an amber color with a good head. I love Flying Dog Pale Ale and I was looking forward to this being an extreme version of that beer. Unfortunately, it fell a little short and is not quite as well balanced and the Pale. Still a very good example of an IPA.

A delicious IPA. Has an amazing aroma. I cannot quite place it. It might be a combination of the citrus, pine, and toffee. But regardless, great aroma. That appearance is your average IPA, amber - red haze. Thin head. A compelx taste, balance of sweet and bitter, where bitter ultimately dominates, as with any IPA. However, there is an added element present. The pine may be doing it. Creamy body. Good beer.
