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.

Kavu (2075) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Pours amber with a medium head. Aroma is citrus fruits and hops. Flavor concentrates less on the fruits and more on the hops in the finish, that could perhaps be a bit stronger. Very solid ipa.

Jow (2006) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Pours a orangey color with nice sized head. Aroma is all hops without even having to get nose close. Taste is hoppy, bitter, and pretty dry. There is some caramel and light citrus. 2nd bottle from variety pack

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2010
The aroma is a little bland. I was expecting something more. bottom line the aroma is very light on citrus hops, mostly malt...bla. thast us much the same but has a nice mouthfeel. very creamy. nice bitterness and I like the ammount of flavor. it would be worse if it was lower ABV.

bubbleflubber (1746) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a lightly soapy head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose contains fresh pine needles with lots of various fresh herbs and light pepper. A citrus blend hits the tongue, backed by a malt foundation, all the while with an undercurrent of lingering black-peppered pine hops. The medium mouthfeel is accompanied by lively carbonation levels, making for a substantive, yet active palate. This is a nice change of recipe from the pre-2008 batches.

beernovice39 (3102) - Montana, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Nice clear orange pour with fluffy white head. Strong citrus, hop and bread scents rise from glass. Taste is all hops with dry finish. We have a winner!

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2010
Pours clear orange to amber with a beige head. Low bead. Grapefruit and pine with some caramel aroma. Taste has straightforward caramel sweetness with touches of apricot under modest pine, earth and grapefruit bitterness. A bit simple. I’m not convinced that this got all this way with the aromatics intact, but it’s a nice balanced drop.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Pours a clear glowing amber with a tall dense off-white thick foamy head. Aroma is spicy, pine, lemony citrus. Flavor is quite the same, spicy pine with some bright lemony citrus, not so much fruity. Thinner finish, lasting bitterness on the tongue, medium/thin body, some corse but smaller carbonation. Just a bit of the 7.1% comes through. Fairly dry overall.

Sammer (1025) - Plano, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Orange golden pour from bottle. I’m told that the recipe for this beer is the same as their sister IPA (Raging Bitch), with the exception of the yeast that was used. Definitly similar in taste, with a nice, fruity, hoppy flavor.
