Pours light orange, with a very nice, thick, off-white head that lasts and lasts. Great lace. Citrus on the nose. All the right malt and hops. A very nice example of an IPA.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours a dark orange to copper amber color forming a small thin bubbled yellow color. Good retention and many soapy and molasses lacings left in the glass. S: Very hoppy in the nose. Skunky, grassy and piny. Caramel malts backbone T: Follows the nose. Quite pine-citrus-grassy hops bitterness mixed with sweet caramel malts in upfront. American IPA character. Delicious hoppy sting in the end M: Medium body. Bit molasses. Good carbonation. Nice hoppy, skunky bitter aftertaste O: Great drinkability. Delicious American IPA specimen [ BA Review @ 2/21/2010 ]

Obviously been a minute, but I don’t remember this being so different than the newer version, so here’s the same rating: Well balanced well hopped single IPA. Nothing special here, just a good drinking brew, especially in summer!

This rating is a memory of the old brew. I’ve always been a fan of Flying Dog (and have also long been a fan of IPAs) and remember being very excited to try this years ago. The result was not what I had expected and was a huge disappointment. Having had the newer brew on numerous occasions I have to say it is much more like what I expected out of a flying dog IPA when I first had this a long time ago.

Koelschtrinker (11738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Sehr hopfig-trockener Geruch, zudem aromatisch und etwas karamellig. Der Antrunk ist vom amerikanischem Hopfen geprägt, trocken, aromatisch. Der würzige Hopfen wird extrem süß und wirkt deutlich übertrieben, auch im Abgang ist der volle Hopfen zu deutlich präsent und unterdrückt andere Aromen weitgehend. Lecker, aber nicht so gut dosiert. Test vom 27.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,11,11,12,8,12 - 11,20

Sampled many moons ago. Thank God they changed the recipe on this guy. Not that the old stuff was truly bad, but it certainly wasn’t that great. The new recipe is a vast improvement. Nice job from Flying Dog figuring this out.
