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.

KM (327) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 14, 2009
Bottle. Medium brown body, with large bubbles. Nice medium sized off white head. Nice light sweet fruity aroma. Nice hops, fresh fruits. Nice medium heavy hoppy flavour, fresh fruits. Bitter finish with a touch of tropical fruits. This is a fine beer, but could have had more of the lovely flavour and aroma. (At home, 02.04.09)

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 12, 2009
330ml bottle into tulip glass. A clear orange ale with a medium foamy off white head and nice lacing. Vigorous nose of floral hops with citrus-orange notes largely obscuring the caramel malts. Thickish body with a light caramel malt base and fruity mid palate but finishes with a very strong floral hop bitterness that lingers. Probably too strong for my liking and a touch soapy. The ABV comes through as well. If you like a strong IPA with bags of hops then this is for you. I prefer my IPAs to be a better balanced.

What a special IPA, nice texture, reliable hop presence, not a huge after bite in the taste, goes down quite well. can you still have fun? can I live while Im young?

jezmez68 (395) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2009
I rated the pre-2008 one higher than this one. Based on that description, this one is not as good. Looks like a pale ale. Yellowish, not orangeish. Hop profile is fine, but Alpha King, considered a Pale Ale, is a better IPA than this.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 11, 2009
Pours a really nice looking amber color with thin white head. Aroma is citrus hops and something almost floral. Really nice. Flavor is very hoppy, heavy on the citrus notes, but has a weird metallic twang on the backend and the bitterness gets really harsh. A bit more malt balance and this could be a great beer instead of just good.

AndyReynolds (859) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2009
Aroma is strong with grassy hops. I also dected citrus and pine notes. The taste was watered down, but I still found this beer to be very refreshing. The nice bitter bite really stands out in the finish. This is a great every day, summer time beer.

cgreb (399) - Marburg, GERMANY - APR 10, 2009
bottle - orange amber beer with a orange white head. Very nice citrus fruit and peach aroma. Flavour has a lot of bitterness. But well balanced with its floral sweetness.

[1874-20081205] Cask. Orange hops and some tea and stewed malt grain aroma. Hazy, brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Hoppy and grainy orange roughage flavour. Medium-full body. Quite enjoyable.
