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.

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.

TheOldKid (46) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2010
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.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Pours orangy-blonde with a medium white head. Nose is crisp, floral hops. Taste is fairly straightfoward IPA; a moderately sweet malt is balanced with semi-bitter and very flowery/herby hops. Finish is long and mostly bitter hops. Nothing new or exciting here but a solid rendition of the IPA style.

spkevin (389) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light brown/dark orange beer with a big white head. Some lacing on the glass. Good aroma with hints of citrus, grapefruit and hops. Taste starts bitter but turns fruity after a while. Nice bitter notes. Good hoppy, bitter aftertaste. Just a good IPA from the USA!

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Poured into a pint glass. A: Orange amber color. Great clarity. The head, albeit my best efforts, barely formed (maybe about 6 mm). What was there, however, stuck around for a while and left a ring of lace. S: Some hoppy smell and perhaps a little bit of spice and fruit. Aroma isn’t very strong. T: Seemingly no balance. First I am hit with citrus hops, like orange juice. Next comes wave after wave of bitter hops, which totally washes out the hop flavor. The bitterness is a bit extreme, which I like, but I can’t deal with the duality of the malts and hops. This beer could be really good with a little tweaking. M: Biting carbonation prevents a smooth drink. D: One of these is plenty more than enough. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-20-2008 23:33:12

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle. Quite hazy. Nice beer that is truly American. Hence, pineapple and grapefruit in flavor. but perhaps sweeter and with a more malty body than your std APA. Not as bitter as some more flamboyant new microbeers.

basspro76 (423) - New York, USA - JUN 10, 2010
Aroma of hops, pine and citrus. Taste is very dry, slight amount of bitterness and hops. Aftertaste is watery.

Kavu (2236) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2010
Pours amber with a medium head. Aroma is citrus fruits and hops. Flavor concentrates less on the fruits and more on the hops in the finish, that could perhaps be a bit stronger. Very solid ipa.

Jow (2159) - New York, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Pours a orangey color with nice sized head. Aroma is all hops without even having to get nose close. Taste is hoppy, bitter, and pretty dry. There is some caramel and light citrus. 2nd bottle from variety pack
