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.

Nice citrus and greens in the nose, and quite a nice bitter flavor. A super delicous IPA, that makes my top 10 IPAs, to date.

markas101 (1841) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2009
33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada via Michigan. Deep golden colour, creamy thick head that stays full through drinking. Autumn spice aroma, smooth first sip with some caramel and sweet maple, then the bitterness builds for a long finish that isn’t too overpowering.

ljstephenson (249) - Enterprise, Alabama, USA - JUN 7, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2013 Nice amber pour with a thinning off-white head, good lacing, sweet aroma with moderate hoppiness, flavor is well balanced with malt and hop, heavy grapefruit and a bit piney, finishes only slightly bitter and dry, very smooth and crisp....great IPA.

this is a deceptively good beer, the citrus is handled very well and comes across in surprising ways

hirigalzkar (2283) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle. Flowery hops. Bitter finish. A little too "easy going". Could have had a bigger body and more complexity.

zer0crew (119) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with no real head, just a light lacing of foam along the top. Aroma is of strong, spicy hops. Pretty bitter finish. Could be balanced a little better.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Clear gold with a thin off-white head. Caramel and floral hop aroma. Good thick caramel body with a floral and pine hop finish. Good balance in this one.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 Bottled 355ml. It pours a clear amber beer with a decent nicely lasting creamy off white head. Impressive citrusy grassy nose with hints of pineapple, blood orange, lemon, rose, wild strawberries, elderflower, basil and cream. This beer reminds me of Victory hop wallop in a way- wonderful. Excellent hop profile (the dry hopping definately adds to this beer) in the taste where blood orange, lemon, rose, pineapple, elderflower and cream emerge. Decent bitterness. Perfectly balanced. Peppery and grassy. Extremely refreshing. Beautiful lacework. Medium bodied. Dry bitter finish which is reminiscent of blood orange, rose an lemon. Excellent. It’s a remarkably refreshing IPA, best served cool. Underrated in my opinion. I reveled in every sip. A top notch beer from Flying dog. Rerate: This is indeed a great beer! Goddam underrated!

Nice hop aroma...Clear copper color...Flavor is all hops...A bit of malt, but not enough to balance...Bitter finish...

Bottle. Pours clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and flowery with citrus and pine notes. Flavor is bitter hops with spicy pine and grapefruit flavors. FInishes dry.
