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.

ALLOVATE (2727) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2011
Tasting from January 2008.
Deep set orange body, not hazy, not quite clear either and oily as its swirled. The carbonation is tight, very fine and sparse in its streams to the top. The crown is sadly missing off this one though, barely a few islands of white where the bubbles erupt. Bountiful, doughy and thick grapefruit, cantaloupe and peardrop nose, not piercing but well-rounded, plump and ripe with a good backbone of honey and crystal malts. Meaty, firm mouthfeel. Carbonation bites upfront but its all soft and doughy from there on in. Big ass fruity esters; blood orange, tangerines, grapefruit, all sorts of tropical fruit seem to assault the palate and backend olfactories. Biscuity toasted malts add a generous level of sweetness to it. Pine-nut and pine-needles, a sting of nettles and some biscuity malt lingers after the big, biting bitter peak of the swallow. A little lemongrass and damp fresh herbs build also. Slight warmth is felt in the depths but the alcohol remains well masked. Strong in flavour, balanced beautifully. An impressive APA. (12fl/oz, no date stamp, Int’l Beer Store, W. Leederville)

Bottle@Landet, Stockholm. Copper, offwhite foamy head w good lacing. Aroma of hops, grapefruit. Taste of hops, high bitterness, maybe a bit unbalanced. Palate is creamy, carbonation is soft. Overall nice IPA.

Gription79 (2716) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUL 10, 2011
This beer got better as it warmed. It was not a big citrus American hop bomb. Nose was of grain, grass, and earthy hops. Taste was bitter, earthy/floral hops, and grain. Bitter beer, but not really hoppy.

Hermod (4981) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle from Bierzwerg. Poured amber color with a white head. Vey fruity, hoppy aroma with some citrus and grassy notes. Fruity hoppy flavor as well, slightly sweet and a biting bitter finish.

Super clean aroma with a clean taste. Slight citrus flavor and very dry. I really enjoyed their IPA. This is one of the best out there.

haf (525) - Gijon, SPAIN - JUN 28, 2011
Muy buena cerveza norteamericana. Posiblemente de las mejores que he probado de este pais y seguro que la mejo India Pale Ale.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Clear body, amber color with an off-white lacing head. Caramel, grapes, apple, pine, honey, woodcask hints in the aroma. Medium body and carbonation. Fruity but bitter taste and aftertaste. Really good!

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow in color with a big head. The flavor is spicy malts, with some earthy hops. Not getting that much in the citrus department. More malt driven with toned down hops and a medium bitter finish. Certainly an easy to drink IPA, but not among my favorites.

JohnRMurdoch (3984) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle from The Cave. Mild phenolic hoppy aroma. Hazy amber brown colour, not much head. Sharp strong dry hoppy resin flavour. Big bitter aftertaste. Good, but not Raging Bitch.

BroSpud (1911) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours light amber with a white head. Decent amount of hops. More pine than citrus. Decent carbonation. Overall not bad.
