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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Picked up a sixer from the Binny’s in Orland Park, Illinois. It pours a clear golden orange body with a medium head, short lived, with plenty of lace. It has a citrusy hop aroma, just a tad catty, that allows only a bit of the sweet malt to ooze out. There’s just enough malt in the flavor to keep this from getting totally out of balance, the taste being mainly about zest of lemon, yellow grapefruit, pine, earth, and catbox. Bitter finish, but somewhat abrupt. Nice over all.

Tap @ In de Wildeman, Amsterdam. Aroma consists of citric hops. Clear, amber-orange coloured with a firm head. Taste is bitter, hoppy, citric, has some malts, some pine. Medium bodied. It’s good.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 What a great white, frothy head on this! Golden orange color. Sweet piney, citrus, hoppy aroma. And the flavor... not as sweet, retaining hoppiness, but almost metallic. Thin and bitter. Think this could have been better with a different type of hop (like I’m the expert). Not bad, but nothing to search out. I think I like the pale as much as the IPA. It grows on you... a little floral, heartily hoppy!

surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
I purposely waited until i completed the six pack before making a final judgement on this IPA. At first it seemed very bitter and with a strong bite after wards. I must admit that i don’t care for Ales so i waited and I had to admit that this stuff grew on me. The flavor and appearance looked and tasted bold and dynamic. I will try this again and I would recommend this to any IPA drinker.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
2008-12-05. Very hazy dark body, modest off white head. (3+) Nice dry hopped aroma, pleasant resiny hops. (7+) Flavour is likewise nicely hoppy, light citrus and resin is not over the top but quite quaffable. (7+) Average palate. Alcohol was barely noticed, I had no idea it was this strong until I entered my rating. 7/3/7/3/15 - 3.5 <i>Dry hopped Cask at Goodbar, Buffalo</i>

RasterMaster (258) - , Oklahoma, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Orange copper pour into thick white foamy head that dissipated into melted lacings. Carbonated bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass to a foamy surface. Aroma of hoppy citrus. Initial hoppy bite fades into a spiced malty finish.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
12 oz bottle from Bev4less. Pours a translucent copper color with a fair sized sudsy white head. The nose is moderate with sweet malts and a bit of pine. The flavor is dominated by biter pine, walnuts, and some grapefruit rind. Tastes a bit more biter than the 60 IBU’s listed in the description. The mouthfeel is light and malty. The finish is long, dry and biter. Overall: A very respectable IPA.

sloth (2607) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Pours a medium sized offwhite head, retention is good with a sticky thin lace hanging around. Crystal clear, light copper hued brew. Nose is lightly sweet malts, tropical, light melon and orange. Lightly medium body, lightly oily almost creamy. Nice fruity flavors, orange, lemon lime with a lightly bready, toasty maltiness. Lighly fruity, dry lightly biting finish. From bottle @ cellar temp. Decent enough quaff. Procured @statelineliquors.
