COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Another Big Sister of the Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale…. Loads of Malted Wheat for a Curious Malt Foundation and a Light Color, But Our Belgian Yeast Leaves a Huge Flavor and Complexishness.

SanfordBrewer (1392) - Sanford, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Lucent copper, dense beige head, sticky and creamy full body, medium-high carbonation.

Aroma: bright citrus american hops, fresh sweet pale and caramel malt. Very DIPA.

Taste: lots of bright citrus vinyl floral evergreen hops, caramel malt, buiscuty yeast esters.

I’d call this a cross between double india pale ale and trappist golden - its west coast hops with some nice fresh bready belgian yeast character. I was expecting a sour ale, but this has much more of a trappist character. Very good. Complex but sessional. The only change i would make is less vinyl more floral hops.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear amber gold with a large white head. Tropical fruit, citrus, light spicy musk, fuzzy phenolic yeast notes. Medium bodied, spicy and smooth, lightly sweet. Big hop presence here. Long quinine and grapefruit finish. Quite nice.

Lagunitas is great value, but this beer is pretty standard for its style. Slightly sugary aroma before a doughy taste and peppery finish.

Medium sized puffy white head, fair retention and lace. Lightly hazy gold in color. Nose is a bit juicey, lightly fruity, faint citrus, Spicey, lightly herbally and a tad bready. Body is medium, decent carbonation, a little acidic and lightly oily. Fruity spicey flavors with some doughy malts, wild? Nah. More spicey than funky, faint earthyness, grass. Dry finish, spicey and a hint juicey fruit. Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

CheersMate (1313) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Bottleworks. Fluffy head sits on top of a diaphanous copper colored beer. This looks pretty good, but for a Belgian Strong it seems a bit light. Heavy aroma of grapefruit is coming through more than I anticipated...which is good. You can definitely smell that Belgian yeast. There is a nice pear aroma mixing with a nice grapefruit aroma. Is it anything groundbreaking? No, but it still blends well together. This beer has an amazing hop flavor, for it being classified as a Belgian Strong Ale. Nice sweet, fruity yeast flavor balances well with the grapefruit hop flavor. This beer provides a damn near perfect balance between Belgian Ale and IPA. Nothing here is compromised, and all of the flavors meld quite well. The texture is wonderfully slick, and not to effervescent.

strap (552) - Seoul, SOUTH KOREA - NOV 17, 2010
really good. can taste a bit of grapefruit, slightly piny. hops really come out on this one, but plenty of malty sweetness in here as well. i think this is what Flying Dog was shooting for with the Raging Bitch Belgian IPA. big flavors, nice hoppy kick. well done.

Bottle. Amber pour with a compact, frothy white head. Aroma is very spicy with strong fruit notes and strong Belgian yeast. Floral hops as well. Taste is big spicy notes, floral hops, pine, Belgian yeast, dried fruit and sweet malt. Some candyish notes coming through as well. Body is medium with a strong, dense carbonation. Finishes with more big yeast notes, strong floral hops, resinous pine, sweet malt, ripe fruits, and light candy.

Tmoney99 (11678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear straw color with a large rocky white head that was mostly lasting and produced good lacing. Good complex citrus and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet and bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.
