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.

"pretty average beer. decent balance with semi sweet malt and hops, but the hops don’t pop. for an ipa, there are sooooo many others i’d pick up first. about what i expected, though."

TtV (74) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle 35 cl. Light brown almost orange coloured with a creme lasting top. Aroma has lots of citrus with the typical bitterness of IPA. The taste is also IPA all the way, but there’s a lovely complexity of fruits too.

Bottle. Hazy amber pour with tan head. Aroma is rich on peach and has metallic notes to it. Taste has instant bitterness and lovely citrus. Nice and fresh but not all that balanced

It pours deep golden with a orange tinge to it. The head is full and white with some lacing on the side. There are caramel and citrus aromas. It has a taste combination of caramel and citrus hops. It has a dry finish with a bitter pop that is not as strong as most IPA’s.
