4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Found out almost by accident that this is a newer recipe than the version I had in 2004. Rich dark amber with a slightly clumpy white head and lacing. Sticky hop aroma. Way better than old version! Hops front to back during and after. Just enough malt to carry the hops through the crowd. Sprucey citrus with a dash of pepper. I like it!

Tap. Malty and caramel like but not as heavy body as others. Bitterness is round and long lasting.

Bottle Pours a hazy orange amber with a thin white head. The head has average staying. Laces fairly well. Aroma is hoppy with touch of malt. Mostly pine and citrus. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is not as hoppy as hoped but okay. Blended well and a good mix of hops and malts. Has an oily texture. The body is medium to full. Alcohol is hidden well. Has a decent finish with a decent aftertaste. Decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20100322 12oz bottle from Honeygo. Dark golden color with super sticky, large white head. Aroma is basic C-hops, fruity though generic yeast-malt combo. Medium bodied, prickly eff, lingering citrus pith bitterness lasts. Lots of grapefruit pith flavor, candy apple, some toffee and tea notes from the malts. Really, just a solid, pleasant, clean, basic IPA. I wish it was lower ABV because it would be an easy, cheap, regular quaff.

Poured a orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma: pine, citrus, hops. Taste: hops and pine. Bitter finish. Body was a little thin. Overall not much going on with this brew... good enough, but more on the average side.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. hazy orange/gold under a large foamy white head. spicy hop aroma with notes of caramel. flavor is spicy again with soapy notes, a bit white grape and herbal tea. medium bodied. a very simple ipa. tastes a lot like mikkeller’s warrior single hop. a good moderately sweet malty backbone with a pretty simple hop profile. the abv is hidden well. unfortunately, i don’t remember the old snake dog for comparison(it’s been too long) but the ingredients and abv are completely different. i still get those same grapey flavors though.
