12 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Nice orange,amber color with a 1 fingerhead which fades slowly into a pillowy ring around the glass. Oddly, aroma was lacking. Only thing discernible was slight bready malt and orange peel.Big malt taste with some piney hop bitterness that punches thru slightly and hangs on at the finish. Taste seemed to get better the more I washed down but was kinda dissappointed with the aroma which was almost nonexistant.

Un fulgido esempio di come si possano interpretare alla maniera statunitense le classiche IPA anglosassoni, ce lo offre la Flying Dog, dinamico e rinomato birrificio del Colorado. In particolare la sua Snake Dog IPA si inserisce in quel filone che prevede una netta caratterizzazione con luppoli americani (qui Columbus anche in dry hopping e Warriors), ma che rifugge da eccessive estremizzazioni. In effetti stiamo parlando di una birra di carattere ma comunque ben equilibrata. Lo si avverte fin dal naso dove le fresche note agrumate, di frutta esotica, si sposano con note floreali e ancora con la componente dolce dei malti. L’assaggio conferma l’eccitazione e la voglia di bere del naso, con un attacco dolce, caramello, seguito da da una calibrata e lunga secchezza che porta con se tutta la componente fruttata.

Average white head with good retention. Slightly hazy orange golden colour. Citrus, lemon and caramel aroma. Flavour has hoppy bitterness, toasted malt, resin and a dry bitter finish. Creamy palate and medium body. Quite a good IPA.

wiwetu (68) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Bardzo przyjemna, wysokiej klasy IPA. Z solidną goryczką balansowaną fajną owocowością w stronę grejpfruta/skórki cytryny, niezłą podbudową słodową, przyzwoitym cialem i naprawdę zajebistą pianą, która może nie trzyma się do końca, ale po choćby małym zamieszaniu szkła odbudowuje się i pręży przed konsumentem. Udana rzecz.

huineman (372) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2015
Pours dark amber with certain greenish hue. Rocky tan head. Intense aroma is the classic in this style: tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit), herbs (rucola, dandelion), honey. Fresh, mouth-covering, very bitter and long-lingering.

Icedwarf (621) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2015
Helder donkergeel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter en droog, zwarte thee en grapefruit. Goede IPA die helaas iets te weinig body heeft.

ChtiBreizh (101) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 28, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 Golden with tiny head. Classic IPA aromas and flavours. Malty backbone on the strong side. Not as strong a bitterness as other american IPAs.

robto (52) - Belas, PORTUGAL - MAY 27, 2015
35cl bottle in "O nosso Café" Bar in Sintra, Portugal. It pours a cloudy amber colour with a large white head that lasts very well. Aroma is metallic, hoppy, citrus, fresh grass, resin and grapefruit. Taste is some malty caramel, hops, citrus, green mango and grapefruit flavour and it ends with a quite bitter aftertaste. It has a full body and low carbonation. Not bad.

Imported can, overpowering metallic taste imho would prefer a bottle to sample, lingering boozy bitter aftertaste not pleasant, lovely on the nose but disappoints in quite a neutral taste indicating typa way
