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.

Pours the color of a hazy weak tea with a pitted off-white head. The nose is a subtle blend of fruity/citric hops and caramel malt. Medium-bodied and creamy with a moderately bitter finish. The flavor is of fruity, citric and lightly piny hops and sweet caramel malt, finishing with a fairly tight, bitter finish. I like this newer recipe a heckuva lot more than I did the old Snake Dog. This is a solid brew, and it’s pretty sessionable for 7.1% ABV; that could be a dangerous combo. ;)

My "go to" IPA here in SC due to its availability and fairly big flavor. Again, as with many IPAs, I find myself wanting just a little more in the body, but compared to many others, this is full-bodied. Hops are citrusy, piney, grassy, slightly lemony.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JAN 25, 2009
Bottle 0,355 l. Copper brown with off white head. Nose has lot’s of hops, fresh, some citrus and pine with grass and faint fruit drops. Flavor is a bit thin with bitter hoppiness. The hops are a bit straightforward and not as juicy as it used to be pre 2008. Nice, but not as complex and feels thinner. Calls for another rate.

Great copper color. Aroma is fresh and citrus-like. Taste is awesome, the hops take over and together with a fruity character, the brew steps into great dimensions. Big mouthfeel, and almost oily at the end. Me likes very much.

TET (1603) - FINLAND - JAN 24, 2009
UPDATED: APR 23, 2013 A beautiful, red-brown beer with a thin and blond head. Aroma is exotic and fruitfull: papaijas, tropical fruits, some sweetness and hint of pine needles. Taste is highly bitter, some pine and not so fruitfull than aroma. Aftertaste is long, dry and piney, even resin. Quite easy to drink, but there are enough malts to make this nicely slippery to drink. First breath promises heavenly beer, but the taste is not so great than aroma, more fruits would be great. There are some weakness in this IPA, but anyway, this is the beer for hopheads and fruit-lovers.

larsga (6177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2009
Medium coarse light brown head doesn’t last. Brown body. Malty raisiny aroma with notes of fruit, resin, and freshly sawed wood. Dry-sweetish malty raisiny biscuity taste with resiny wooden pine needle notes. Light body. Soft mouthfeel. Dry malty resiny aftertaste with sugary spicy notes. Maybe a bit sweet. Lovely, and dangerously drinkable. Subtle more than punchy. (0.355l bottle, wine monopoly.)

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Aroma is distinctly filled with grapefruit and biscuits. Color is medium amber with a quarter inch tall off white head. Flavor of grapefruit, sweet malt, pine, minerals and then a dry, husky finish that seems a little rough. Good aroma and initial flavor, but I personally don’t care for the harsh finish.

liinis (1562) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2009
I love IPA but this has something funny. something wrong. lots of sweetness and lemon and grapefruit. Hops are overwhelming, good hops but the mix and quantity fails.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2009
12 oz. bottle. A stable one-finger near-white head upon a bright, pale amber colored body. Cream caramel and pink grapefruit to the nose. Smooth, dry malt flavor, with an evident, light fruity and piney bitterness. Floral notes. Quite filling. Dry fruity-bitter ending. Pretty good stuff.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2009
Clear, light coppery color with small but lacy white head. Aroma is strongly hoppy with pine, grass, citric notes and some caramel malts. Also some strange side aroma. Flavor is slightly buttery, toffy and grassy with citrus fruits. Alcohol is not present at all. Nice crispy hops in the end. Medium-bodied, relatively low carbonated palate. Very pure IPA.
