Ran into the "Snake Dog" recently. Highlights include a nice, crisp, citrus aroma paired with some serious--but smooth--bitterness. Nice IPA that I would like to encounter again.

I really really liked this beer, IPA is my favorite so I am biased, but experienced I would say. Very nice offering, really good hoppy flavor, clean refreshing, delicious. Nice color, but smell and taste are very nice. Tastes like an IPA should. The palate wasnt overwhelmed, it was just enough. I liked it alotttt. Try it out if you like crisp, hoppy straightforward flavor

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
G: Poured into a Stone Arrogant Bastard ping glass.
A: Slightly copperish; more the color of grain--doesn’t appear as "heavy" as the typical IPA. Decent single-finger head to start off, although this dissipates quickly, leaving a little bit of lacing.
S: Slightly hoppy. Not much citrus, and a little bit of pale malt. A tiny bit of amber as well.
T: Quite malty. I would say that there is a decent balance, although I think this tends a little too much toward malt for the style. With the hops, I’m not getting all that much--I don’t know where the 60 IBU’s are. The malt is slightly biscuity.
M: Smoothe with light carbonation. Mellows in the mouth.
D: Drinkable enough, nothing too special. I’ll try this on tap if I see it, just to see if it’s any different.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel malt mixed with resinous, pine/spruce aroma and flavor. The resin flavor really comes out well and washes into a nice bitter finish. I can’t wait to open another!

Pretty solid IPA with an almost wintergreen-laden citrus Columbus hop smack with a nice sweet IPA tea-like aroma. a bit one dimensional as far as flavors going. nice crisp medium-dry aftertaste.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2012 En mycket fin IPA som drar starkt åt tropisk frukt. Mycket frisk, citrus, bra balanserad beska och maltkropp. Inte för tunn eller tung. Stor munkänsla, bra eftersmak.
