COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Devil Dog will chew you up and leave you whimpering for more, At 98 IBUís and 5.2 pounds of hops to the barrel it is an all out assault on the senses. Devil Dog Started as a labor of love but quickly took on a life of its own, leaving us drooling like Pavlovís dogs at the mere mention of its name. Triple dry hopped and at 10% ABV, more than one of these bad boys will cause you to howl at passing strangers and chew up your toys, or anything else you can get your sharp little teeth on. Hops: Columbus, Northern Brewer, Ahtanum, Cascade and Simcoe Malt: Pale, Carmel and Munich

Pours light amber golden with white suds. Rich aromatics, fruity green hops with soothing grain. The taste is grainy and filling, lightly warming and nice crisp fruity hops. Strong bitter but not overwhelming, kind of a light herbal green bitter with the fruits running with the grain midway and a nice drying grainy finish. There is a light tartness to compliment the sweet ish grain. Nice brew, Iíve tried an awesome variety of iipaís from laughing dog.

MIBRomeo (2561) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Dark amber color with a hint of murkiness and a very large aggressive white head w/ sticky soapy lacing. Fruity hop aroma hints of grapefruit, pine, passion fruit, some candied sugars - my one complaint is the aroma is a touch lighter than Iíd like. Palate is full well bodied and lightly creamy. Flavor follows the aroma but with more intensity. Finishes lightly warm and sweet. I could have called this a barely wine more than an IIPA, but delicious either way.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled 5/29/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some good soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, biscuit, grapefruit, pine, honey, orange peel, floral, mango, and herbal. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance; a touch boozy but not too bad. Taste of caramel, grapefruit, pine, biscuit, honey, floral, orange peel, mango, nuttiness, and herbal. Fair amount of spicy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, caramel, honey, pine, orange peel, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice flavor balance with a very good bitterness/malt sweetness balance. No cloying flavors at all; very balanced despite a fairly long finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a pretty creamy, slick, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Imperial IPA. Great flavor balance with no cloying hop bitterness or sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. Really enjoyed this one, very well done.

Wow. This is HOPPY as all hell. This is extremely bitter, but very clean on the palate. Really great drink that bops you in the nose, the punches you in the mouth. Great beer...

A wonderful velvety mouth feel and the most well balanced Imperial Iíve come across in a long time. The sweet malt quality of a high gravity beer is well balanced by the hops and the combination makes for a great seasonal. Iíll be looking for this as a special treat every year!

HighWine (954) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Tap flight side by side with Sneaky Pete at Max's Taphouse in Baltimore. Light amber pour with no head. Black tea nose and less hoppy but more bitter than Pete. Good sweet tea malt flavor after the sip is gone. Hoppy but finishes pretty clean. Like Pete better bit there's nothing wrong with this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Beautiful brew here! Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a nice 2-finger eggshell head sitting atop, leaving soapy window-wash lacing. The nose is of candied oranges, truffles, hints of fruitcake, spruce and raisin-nut bread. Flavors show caramel, cognac, toffee, orange peel, candied citrus, pine, spruce and finish with a light pine/spruce turning to a lightly warmed cognac. The mouthfeel is slick and liquer-ish to the palate. With such complexity and full-bodiedness, this is a sipper to be enjoyed any night. Again, a great Double IPA!! Thoroughly enjoyable for a nightcap.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Clear dark orange pour, nice lasting head and lacing, strong sharp hop bit. Flavor is hot caramel, bitter herbal hops, and a good strong malt backbone to stand up to all the hops and alcohol. Even at $8 a bomber, this was worth it.
