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.

Bottle pours a medium orange with an intial big foamy head taht dissipates to a nice light covering. Some lacing. Nose is sweeter smells. Up front in the mouth is some grassy, some light citrus and a reasonably nice malt balance. Nothing is overwhelming here, which works pretty well for me. This isn’t a big hop bomp, but a pleasantly nice drinker. Good carbonation and a medium body.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 23, 2012
Originally reviewed: 12/10/08. Pours a light off-orange with a nice foamy white head that ratains wonderfully. Good lacing. Smell is very understated. Some citrus, and some malt. Really tamed down. Taste is hoppy but, as others have already stated, lacks the nice citrus complement. Not a bad brew for hop-heads, but there are much better AIPAs out there. I enjoyed it and would have another sometime, but I gotta rate it against its counterparts, and this one falls a tad short.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Brown 12Fl Oz bottle, poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed tulip. Best before 1st Dec 2010, drank 27th Jul 2010. The body is a dark amber, dirty orange colour, the head off-white and clingy. The aroma is all bitter hops, as is the first taste. The second and third sips also taste of hop bitterness, as did the rest of them: typical of this (in my opinion) over hopped style. As the beer warmed a little the alcohol reared its head and became a factor in the hop flavours. Scored it for style not personnal taste. Glad I only bought one bottle, I’ll not be getting another, just not my taste, sorry to all you hophead types!

(bottle) Clear copper body with a medium white, frothy head. Malty aroma is medium sweet, caramel. Hop aroma of pine and grass, some orange. Flavor is strongly bitter; resin, grapefruit rind, pine, grass, hay. Some moderate caramel malt. Good body: medium to full, soft carbonation, smooth and oily mouthfeel. Long bitter hop finish.

VRBJG (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2012
Pours crystal clear amber with a big cream colored head. Smells of grapefruit and caramel. Tastes malty...some hops, but not a ton until the end of the taste. Creamy on the palate.

japi (159) - Neubrandenburg, GERMANY - APR 13, 2012
An amber coloured beer with two-fingered, white, frothy head that mostly diminishing. The aroma is brutal hoppy, it’s like orange, flowers, pine and resin. The taste is bitter with notes of grapefruit. The finish is long and dry hoppy bitterness. Oily texture and medium body.
