3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
[bottle] I love the hoppy aroma of this IPA. All together a very decent IPA, probably one of the best I have had. Palate is kind of oily, and the beer just slides down your throat.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Hashigo Zake. Pours deep amber, fluffy off white head. Strong American hop aroma - grapefruit, grass and a bit peppery. Caramel nalt barely sneaks in.
Initially some grapefruit flavour, then light light bitterness. Caramel malt shows prominintley, but hops are always in background.
Bitterness accumulates at the back of the palate.
This bottle is a bit old and travelled, would have been much better fresh.

Snake Dog IPA at Kyra Theatre Bangalore. Hoppy beer with a nice balance of malt. If only this beer had stronger hop aromas - this would be one of the best.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bevuta in bottiglia,si presenta di un bel colore dorato con un bel cappello di schiuma che però svanisce troppo rapidamente.
inizialmente risulta piacevolmente luppolata,ma subito dopo al palato si sente subito un forte sapore di agrumi, che non dispiace.
forse mi aspettavo qualcosa di più,ma in linea di massimo è veramante un a buonissima IPA !!!!!

Clear, blond body. Off-white creamy head. Ok lace. Fresh, citric aroma with caramel hints. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet flavour. Balance is not bad, but neither great. Still nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle into tulip. What can only be called a smack in the face. Pours a clear, dark orange with a thinnish white head. Smells of citrus and watermelon candy. Tastes heavily of grapefruit, some lemon, and a little grass, with plenty of hops, giving your nose a little tingle. Finishes like grapefruit juice, bitter, and very dry. Another favorite.
