Not normally a fan of flying dog but this IPA is a smooth addition to the flying dog family. Nice balance without being overly hoppy..

Color is golden with low head. Aroma is hops, fruits and hint of butter. One can smell a bit of alcohol too. Flavor is hoppy, bitter amd planty of citrus fruits. Nice beer.

Pours an apricot colour wiyh a thin off-white head.’
Aroma is hops and light fruits.
Flavour is mainly hops, but not over the top. Some sweetness mixed in amongst the bitter, a good balance.....hint of pine...very drinkable and crisp.

Peach-colored amber with a quickly disappearing head to faint light colored lacing. Smell is hoppy and somewhat piny and fruity as well. Tastes just as hoppy as it smells, with a hint of the sweet to bitter taste and flavor of a grapefruit. Mouthfeel is light and clean, with a mention of lightly bitter hop aftertaste.

Has some good moments but poorly balanced and not all of the flavors are working together.

Poured into a tulip glass. Nice foamy head which is retained. Aroma is full of hops and the taste is almost a bit nutty. Overall a fine example of an american style IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
a: gold amber hue, 1/4" head with fair retention. light lacing rings around the glass
s: floral, citrus hop, slight caramel malt
t: Is there such a thing as a balanced american ipa? I think this is the best example. Bitterness and sweet malt are held in check. Good hop flavor profile features flowery and citrus hops. nice.
m&d: slick somewhat prickily mouthfeel. on the border of a DIPA ABV wise, so imbibe wisely.

Many people love this one, however, I don’t see anything special. Since the first time I wasn’t convinced, and recently confirmed the same sensation again. It’s not a bad beer, but I’ve had enough.

Pecka, asi nejlepší lahvová IPA, co jsem kdy pil. Pitelnost je trochu nižší, protože pivo je opravdu hodně hořké a chuťově bohaté. Každopádně doufám, že někdy narazím na čepovanou verzi.

In bottle at the Ely Winter Beer Festival, 2012. Pours a lovely golden amber colour with a decent yellowish head. Aroma of pineapple, passion fruit, caramel and candy sugar. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. Fairly bitter with lingering pineapple, caramel and a little grass. Alcohol is present although well balanced with the considerable hop character. Lovely.
