Standard IPA coloring and nice effervescence from this one. Pretty standard taste, one that stacks up with my favorite West Coast IPAs.

Draft @ OBM:
Small white fluffy head.
Slight hazy orange.
Smell some flowers, fruit (grapefruit) and hops.
Taste is a fine mix of wood, fruits and hops. With hints of spices and sweets/sugars.
Bit sweet, more bitter, fine aftertaste of fruits and bitterness.

Bottle. Really enjoyed this beer which gave me a great floral hoppy aroma followed by a more bitter citrus finish with good malt mixed in as well. A fun IPA for sure.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, light amber in color. Clear and clean. Head gathers around the edges and leaves good lacing. Citrus hops, grapefruit, light fruity esters, and a touch of bready malt in the nose. The palate is light in body, medium carbonation, drinkable, with a long-lasting finish. The flavor is dominated by a lot of citrus hops bitterness. Some grapefruit and malty sweetness. Not too badly balanced, though. It’s certainly an assault on the taste buds!

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.
