Little hazy orange color, with little head. Smell is hoppy, resiny hops, citrus, caramel malt. Taste is very hoppy, resiny and fruity, like grapefruits. Bitter aftertaste that last in the mouth. Very good!

drmet (218) - Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, GERMANY - JUN 6, 2015
Enttäuschend -im antrunk harzige Pinie und mittel-stark bitter -sehr leichte noten von Grapefruit und Holunder -leiche karamellnote -zu wenig kohlensäure -im abgang bittersüß und leichte grapefruitnote Wer Flying Dog IPAs probieren möchte sollte lieber zum "Raging Bitch" oder zum "Easy IPA" greifen

Teran (155) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 5, 2015
Very slightly cloudy amber orange colour, which is unique and interesting. Nice white head. Good on the nose. Hoppy monster and grapefruit dominant. Strong bitter taste. Dry finish. Some grass and pine in the aftertaste. Another proof positive that American beers are the best in the world nowadays. Rough beer, robust in alcohol and everything else. Despite the psychedelic label on the bottle, this is good conservative stuff.

Bottle bought at Albert Heijn. Very malty, some citrus, not too bitter, very boring IPA I must say.

Un fulgido esempio di come si possano interpretare alla maniera statunitense le classiche IPA anglosassoni, ce lo offre la Flying Dog, dinamico e rinomato birrificio del Colorado. In particolare la sua Snake Dog IPA si inserisce in quel filone che prevede una netta caratterizzazione con luppoli americani (qui Columbus anche in dry hopping e Warriors), ma che rifugge da eccessive estremizzazioni. In effetti stiamo parlando di una birra di carattere ma comunque ben equilibrata. Lo si avverte fin dal naso dove le fresche note agrumate, di frutta esotica, si sposano con note floreali e ancora con la componente dolce dei malti. L’assaggio conferma l’eccitazione e la voglia di bere del naso, con un attacco dolce, caramello, seguito da da una calibrata e lunga secchezza che porta con se tutta la componente fruttata.

Average white head with good retention. Slightly hazy orange golden colour. Citrus, lemon and caramel aroma. Flavour has hoppy bitterness, toasted malt, resin and a dry bitter finish. Creamy palate and medium body. Quite a good IPA.

wiwetu (74) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Bardzo przyjemna, wysokiej klasy IPA. Z solidną goryczką balansowaną fajną owocowością w stronę grejpfruta/skórki cytryny, niezłą podbudową słodową, przyzwoitym cialem i naprawdę zajebistą pianą, która może nie trzyma się do końca, ale po choćby małym zamieszaniu szkła odbudowuje się i pręży przed konsumentem. Udana rzecz.

huineman (395) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2015
Pours dark amber with certain greenish hue. Rocky tan head. Intense aroma is the classic in this style: tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit), herbs (rucola, dandelion), honey. Fresh, mouth-covering, very bitter and long-lingering.
