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.

Pours golden amber with good head. Decent sweetness from the malt and a somewhat prominent hop profile. Not my favorite hops, but still a good beer. Goes down smooth.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
0.355l bottle. Pours a bronze semi hazy amber body with a finger size fluffy and fading head. Nice and fruity nose. Sweet with a nice hopyness, a little citrus, pines and perhaps some grapefruit. Really lively carbonated and medium bodied. Hopy bitter with lots of pine flavors, still quite well balanced. A good and easy to drink IPA with a long and nicely lasting bitter ending.

BeerandBlues2 (10531) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear copper with a large, frothy cream colored head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, biscuit, caramel, toast), heavy hops (floral, pine, citrus, herbal), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of alcohol and mint. Flavor is average malt (cookie, toast, caramel), heavy hops (floral, herbal, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear) with notes of mint, alcohol, and sweat. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation, low creaminess with a dry and biting finish. The aroma gives one hope but the beer falls apart in the mouth.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle. Cloudy dark orange and amber colored in appearance. The aroma is a mix of caramel malt, grapefruit citrus and hops resin. The flavor blends orange citrus and floral hops with toasted malt and caramel. It finishes dry with moderate carbonation and a strong bitter aftertaste. The overall flavor borders on Double IPA territory and goes down fairly smooth although it’s a little on the bitter and medicinal side.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2011
12oz bottle. Golden amber color with a creamy head. Piney and fruity aromas - taste is fruity with biscuit malt. Started with a bang and whimpered to the end - missing balance. Very little after taste - just decent.

lucent amber, thin white head, resinous medium body, medium carbonation.

aroma: piney hops, dirty cheesy funk.

taste: dirty funky seafood cabbage hops, buttered corn, and a bit of sweet malt.

Foxbush (1437) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Very nice IPA. I had tasted the earlier verison and it scored well This one is better. The IPA poured a golden color with some haze and ample lacing. The medium bitterness was perfect throughout the experience. Some slight bitter aftertaste but overall very smooth. There were some sprucy citrus and a hint of pepper. This is an excellent IPA for enjoyment any time.

beerlover82 (220) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2011
A=Light golden yellow/orange with thin head, leaving small,minimal lacing that sticks for a little for a few minutes then fades quickly. S&T=Good sweet bready malt with citrus hops coming through, not overpowering but making the mandatory hoppy distinction necessary for an IPA. M=Nice medium feel with good, just-the-right-carbonation level, make this very drinkable session IPA for any given night. Very pleasant, very good introducing others to the fine art of craft brew. Very enjoyable. I like it, not the best IPA, but very good craft brew indeed. Would drink again and recommend.

StoreMy (29) - Nesttun, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2011
I glasset er den gyllen rødlig og vakker med en fin skumtopp. Lukten er innbydende med fremtredende humle og malt og et lite innslag av honning. Den får meg til å tenke sommer og blomster. Smaken skuffer litt etter en så god lukt. Det bitre fra fra humlen blir litt for fremtredende. I ettersmaken passer dette litt bedre, men også her blir det i meste laget.

Pinball (11055) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2011
clear amber, smooth thick offwihte head. strong sweet hoppy aroma. bready malts, flowery and bitter hops, lots of hops. flavor is bitter hoppy, malty base, good malty and hoppy IPA, bordering IIPA in intensity and flavor. however, somehow it comes off as a bit thin bodied and the hops seem to be looking for some more malty base.
