3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours an amber color with a white head and light lacing. The nose is citrusy with a nice crisp C note followed by a earthy columbus like note. Sweet caramel malts in the flavor balance the grassy earthy hops and some snappy citrus notes in the tail. Good IPA with a more modern approach than their previous offering. Good.

Is it really that different? Anyway, I had this beer just recently not realizing that it was actually different than before. 12 ounce bottle, poured a golden amber color. Aroma is a full burst of floral hops, with citrus and a slight note of spice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear amber/orange in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is light but rather loaded with citrus and floral hops. Slightly sweet as well. Flavor is floral and peppery at the beginning with hints of grassy hops, bitter apple peels, and a bitter citrus flavor. Finishes dry and bitter and lingers on the tongue for a bit.

Poured from 12 oz bottles a clear coppery-amber color, aroma of pine, hoppage, malt and earth. Flavour much of the same, sweet malt balance hop and pine resin edge. I don’t know what they did, but huge improvement over previous IPA beer. Smooth, yet deliciously bitter. Good job Flying Dog!
