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.

I haven’t had this beer in about 4.5 years; I got a few bottles as part of the Alpha Collection. I’ve had several bottles, and my perceptions of this beer are weirdly inconsistent. At first I thought I detected some defects - off notes, diacetyl, DMS, etc. Then I had it again and it had a weird graininess. But now, here I sit with a bottle and it is pretty good; a touch perfumey with a slightly odd floral after-taste. Strange. Appearance is quite good - sparkling and clear with good head. Aroma is a touch grainy but bitter. Flavor is not a kick-in-the-pants bitterness-wise, but is pretty good, although rather floral. Mouthfeel is average. I got this bottle in the Alpha pack, courtesy of my Dad, who brought it over from Frederick, MD.

12oz bottle: Pours a clear deep orange bronze with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty pale malty nose with some decent resiny piny hop notes. Starts with average fullness, fine carbonation and sweet pale malts with a good amount of citrusy bittering hops before a drier, slightly warming finish. Could be a little smoother with a cleaner malt profile, but still a decent IPA.

Lots of citrus aroma followed by slight malt notes playing in the background. Pours clear copper amber with a soapy head. Nice strong hops flavors of citrus, pine and mint. Slightly oily on the palate. Overall, its crisp, refreshing and very enjoyable. Good stuff!

Draught, Pivni, York. Clean, tangy aroma, great bitterness and a spicy taste. Lovely amber appearance, lively and fresh. Excellent.

Purchased and drank at "City Cerllars" in Cincinnati, Ohio - I like it, but it’s really nothing special for a decent India Pale Ale.

Dry hop bite and relatively balanced in flavor. Not an over the top IPA but just a good IPA that’s well done.

Pours a hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is mostly pale malts with some hints of citrus/floral hops and a bit of alcohol. The flavor is grassy and citrusy hops with a decent malty backbone. Lots of hoppy bitterness.

Overall a disappointing beer tasting experience. A very nice pour, with a white 1 inch foaming head, however, for an IPA it lacked any smell of hops in the beer. It also lacked a hoppy taste to it, which one would expect from an IPA. Needless to say, I would not buy another, but probably a good IPA for someone trying this style for the first time.
