3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear copper pour with a decent-sized khaki head. The crisp, biscuity aroma features some caramel, rye, topsoil, and grapefruity hoppiness, but underneath it all is a foul, filthy water, wet cardboard, fart smell. WTF is that all about???? Medium-bodied. Semi-sweet biscuity maltiness upfront taste-wise. Kinda earthy in the middle. Bittering grapefruits follow with some sour lemons at the end. Finishes dry and crisp. Flying Dog has really been impressing me as of late, but I don’t know what the hell happened here.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2010 Pours to a darker amber color, which is cloudy. Head was minimal and a whitish tan color. Aroma has a distinct floral scent with a good amount of body. The taste has a heavy bitterness to it with lots of floral hop flavor with a touch of sweetness mixed in. The palate is medium with a lively and fizzy beginning. It finishes with an IPA bitterness that doesn’t last as long as some. Overall a pretty good IPA. I like it, even if the thought of a Snake Dog is horrifying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours orangy-blonde with a medium white head. Nose is crisp, floral hops. Taste is fairly straightfoward IPA; a moderately sweet malt is balanced with semi-bitter and very flowery/herby hops. Finish is long and mostly bitter hops. Nothing new or exciting here but a solid rendition of the IPA style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light brown/dark orange beer with a big white head. Some lacing on the glass. Good aroma with hints of citrus, grapefruit and hops. Taste starts bitter but turns fruity after a while. Nice bitter notes. Good hoppy, bitter aftertaste. Just a good IPA from the USA!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured into a pint glass.
A: Orange amber color. Great clarity. The head, albeit my best efforts, barely formed (maybe about 6 mm). What was there, however, stuck around for a while and left a ring of lace.
S: Some hoppy smell and perhaps a little bit of spice and fruit. Aroma isn’t very strong.
T: Seemingly no balance. First I am hit with citrus hops, like orange juice. Next comes wave after wave of bitter hops, which totally washes out the hop flavor. The bitterness is a bit extreme, which I like, but I can’t deal with the duality of the malts and hops. This beer could be really good with a little tweaking.
M: Biting carbonation prevents a smooth drink.
D: One of these is plenty more than enough.

Bottle. Quite hazy. Nice beer that is truly American. Hence, pineapple and grapefruit in flavor. but perhaps sweeter and with a more malty body than your std APA. Not as bitter as some more flamboyant new microbeers.
